The car i'm driving today is the new Land Rover Defender 110 with the top of the range 3.0l 6 cylinder 400hp engine! The Defender 110 is built as standard with air suspension where the new Defender 90 comes on spring suspension as standard with the option of air suspension.
A commercial derivative will also join the range later this year, priced from around £35,000 plus VAT. Following that will be a plug-in hybrid model, for which pricing has yet to be announced.
The new Defender will also be available with a greater breadth of capabilities than any other Land Rover before. The line-up will range from humanitarian and military models through to lifestyle-orientated versions that can be supplemented with more than 170 individual accessories, likely taking the price into at least Range Rover territory and potentially well beyond £100,000 for top-end versions.
Land Rover claims 1.21m people have configured a Defender on the brand's site, with over half choosing one of the four Accessory Packs: Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban.
The Land Rover Defender has been reborn as a mainstream model for the global market, taking heavy design and capability cues from the iconic original, which was withdrawn from sale in 2016, and the 2009-2016 Land Rover Discovery 4.
