Leaked Patent Images Reveal the New Land Rover Defender 130

A new larger Land Rover Defender will find buyers in North America and other global markets


  • From the images, the Defender’s rear grows while the wheelbase remains intact from the 110.

  • The new Defender 130 should launch midway through 2022.


The recently launched all-new Land Rover Defender is without a doubt one of our favorite SUVs regardless of segment, brand, or dedication. Its packaging, good looks, and incredible capabilities make it one of the most complete vehicles of its kind. And now, if the Defender 110 wasn’t quite big enough, Land Rover’s about to introduce the 130.

As you may or may not know, there was a point in time when the “90” and “110” were linked to each vehicle’s wheelbase. There was also a “130” but these numbers now have more to do with overall sizing and positioning within the product’s line. When Land Rover introduced the new Defender, they left out the 130, but that’s going to change soon.

Leaked patent images show that the 130 will return as an extended version of the 4-door 110. Visually, other than the stretched rear end, the 130 is unchanged from the 110. The 130 will offer seating for up to eight passengers, up from seven for the 110, and a considerably larger trunk.

It’s unclear which powertrains will move the Defender 130 however and according to motor.es, we can expect both petrol and diesel engines. In North America, we’re willing to bet the P300 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine will not be offered.

The new Land Rover Defender 130 should debut sometime midway through 2022.
