The new Defender delivers transformational breadth of capability, using advanced all-terrain technologies to re-define adventure for the 21st Century, while remaining true to the pioneering spirit that has been a Land Rover hallmark for more than 70 years according to a press release. For 2021 Model Year,Land Rover’s powerful andefficient in-line six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine joins the Defender range. Strong performance, smooth response and refinement combine to deliver another Defender that’s a world-class all-rounder on-road and an unrivalled expert off-road.

New X-Dynamic specification is available on the Defender 90 and 110, offering a selection of exterior and interior design elements which reflect the 4×4’s immense capability and ensures it stands out from the crowd.


The new X-Dynamic trim expands the choice of specifications in the Defender range.

Like all Defender models, it’s supremely capable and tough, but with a suite of enhancements to deliver a tougher look and feel, courtesy of exterior accents, including Silicon Satin front and rear skid pans, with matching grille bar and badging plus Rear Recovery Loops in Satin Black.


Individual options and packs have changed across the Defender line-up, including a broader selection of exterior colour options, making the Defender more customisable than ever.

The new colours are Yulong White, Silicon Silver, Hakuba Silver and Carpathian Grey, with white or black Contrast Roofs available with all colours.


Alongside the Defender 110, the Defender 90 gives customers even more scope to choose the perfect model. Powered by the same range of powerful and capable petrol and Ingenium diesel engines featuring Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology, the Defender 90 is available with up to six seats when fitted with the jump seat in the front row.


Developed by Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, Defender Hard Top is the contemporary reimagining of a Land Rover legend. Offering customers a commercial vehicle in both 90 and 110 body designs, it combines Defender capability with a vast and flexible load area for ultimate practicality and durability – the toughest and most rugged member of the Defender family.
