Enthusiasts, get ready. Land Rover has rebooted the Defender, and things are about to get interesting. The 2020 Defender 90 and 2020 Defender 110 have been officially revealed, the short- and standard-wheelbase versions of the new SUV, and at first glance there’s a lot to like.
The retro-futuristic styling is going to be controversial, of course, but there’s no doubting Land Rover’s off-roading credentials. Two engines will be offered, a turbocharged four-cylinder and a turbo-six with mild-hybrid tech. Both will be available with the five-door Defender 110 body-style; the three-door Defender 90 will only be offered with the P400 mild-hybrid.
Inside, wash-clean surfaces and new tech borrowed from Range Rover give the Defender’s cabin an interesting mixture of functional and fancy. OTA update support has been added, and there’s both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. In the US, the 2020 Defender 110 will arrive first, priced from $49,900 (plus destination); the Defender 90 will follow shortly after.
