An icon re-imagined for the 21st century. The range comprises Defender, S, SE, HSE, First Edition and top-of-the-range Defender X. Customers will be able to personalise their vehicle in more ways than any previous Land Rover, with four accessory packs: The Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban packs. Exclusive First Edition models featuring unique specification will be available throughout the first year of production. Land Rover’s new purpose-engineered D7x architecture is based on a lightweight aluminium monoque construction to create the stiffest body structure the brand has ever produced. Land Rover has revealed the New Defender with a dramatic live-action demonstration of its capability at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Electrified power-trains introduced to Defender with advanced mild-hybrid and plug-in electric vehicle options, as well as powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines. New Defender will be available in 90 and 110 body designs. The functional, durable and flexible interior is unique with exposed structural elements and a centre front jump seat. New Defender is as technologically advanced as it is durable. The new 4x4 has a purposeful upright stance and Alpine light windows in the roof, while retaining the side-hinged rear tailgate and externally-mounted spare wheel that make the original so identifiable. Prices start from £40,000.
