2020 Land Rover Defender Features

Land Rover Defender Performance

Proven Performance & Capability

Drivers will have their choice of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, badged P300, and a six-cylinder Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain, badged P400. P300 variants feature a dynamic twin-scroll turbocharged for balanced power delivery and a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds. The P400 MHEV powertrain recaptures energy typically lost during deceleration and redeploys it to optimize performance. Both come mated to a smooth and responsive eight-speed ZF® automatic transmission and twin-speed transfer case. A maximum towing capacity of 8,201 pounds and available Advanced Tow Assist helps showcase the impressive capability of the Defender. Configurable Terrain Response® makes its debut in the new Defender (standard on X derivatives and optional on others), giving drivers the ability to customize the setup of the vehicle to match the conditions. A fully-independent suspension, twin-speed transfer case, and permanent four-wheel drive each help the Defender conquer any obstacle which stands in its way.

Land Rover Defender Exterior

Bold Exterior

Staying true to its legacy, the all-new Land Rover Defender is available with a wide selection of rugged exterior design cues to reflect a personality that matches your own. Body color options include three new metallic shades unique to the Defender with Tasman Blue, Pangea Green and Gondwana Stone joining Fuji White, Eiger Grey, Santorini Black and Indus Silver in the exterior color lineup. A total 12 wheel designs are also offered ranging from 18-inch white-painted pressed steel wheels to bold 22-inch Luna alloy wheels. It’s also the first Land Rover vehicle available with an optional factory-fitted Satin Protective Film which delivers enhanced design and durability. On the Defender X models, a gloss black inset contrast hood is standard along with Gloss Black claddings for a more rugged look both on and off the trails. Choose from four Accessory Packs for a look that’s customized to your personal tastes.

Land Rover Defender Interior

Advanced Technology

A versatile layout and practical design combine to create an interior that helps even the most inhospitable terrain feel more comfortable. The Defender 110 can be optioned with five, six or 5+2 seating while the short-wheelbase Defender 90 can accommodate six occupants in a compact family hatchback length body. You’ll have your selection of three upholstery options including Resolve textile, Grained Leather, and a durable Robust Woven Textile featuring higher Decitex fibers. The rugged constructivist theme is consistent throughout the cabin with visible features that retain structural door casings while partially exposing the painted doors, paying tribute to Defender models of the past. A new ‘PIVI Pro’ (12) infotainment system featuring an intuitive interface with Software-Over-The-Air updates lets you experience your favorite multimedia via a standard 10-inch touchscreen with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.
