Land Rover Defender
NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2020
The long-awaited redesigned Land Rover Defender is arriving at U.S. dealerships now. Land Rover gave the re-engineered off-roader plenty of design cues from the original Defender, which launched the brand and ran with minimal updates for 67 years, during which around 2 million were built.
Two engines will be available for both North American Defender models, a 296-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and a gasoline-electric hybrid powered by a 395-hp inline six-cylinder engine. That motor is equipped with a turbocharger and a 48-volt electric supercharger. Both engines are Jaguar Land Rover Ingenium units built by the company at its plant in Wolverhampton, England. Both are mated to 8-speed automatic transmissions from German Supplier ZF. All Defenders will come with four-wheel drive and a two-speed transfer case, which, when in low gear, allows for extreme traction on very steep inclines and on poor surfaces. The Defender 110 four-door starts at $50,925, including shipping. Fully loaded, it tops $100,000. A smaller two-door, more expensive Defender 90 is expected in the fourth quarter.
