New Land Rover Defender Is Just As Cool As Everyone Hoped

Available in both 90 and 110 versions, the new Land Rover Defender is an icon reborn into the 21st century.

We suppose it was difficult for Land Rover to mess this one up and clearly, they haven’t. The new Land Rover Defender unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show strikes an incredible balance between retro-cool and modern 21-Century design. SUV-hungry markets will gobble it up.

The Land Rover Defender will be offered in numerous trims starting with the Defender, the S, SE, HSE, First Edition and top-of-the-range Defender X. What’s also impressive about the Defender is that it has been developed to cater to many different buyers.

On top of the numerous trims, the Defender 110 (seating up to 7) can be optioned out with one of the four distinct Accessory Packs (Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban).  As well, when the Defender 90 arrives, it will be made available in commercial models as well. There will even be up to 170 supplemental accessories to select from.

There will be a slew of powertrains options for the Defender. From electrified powertrains including advanced mild-hybrid and plug-in electric vehicle (PHEV) options, there will also be powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines. Mated to these mills will be Land Rover’s Terrain Response technology with new Wade mode.

The new Land Rover Defender is designed to meet nearly all needs and desires. The cabin is modern, the styling is all Land Rover and its capabilities will carry the legend forward.
