What’s so special about the 2020 Land Rover Defender?

The Defender is an iconic model for the Land Rover brand, known for its all-terrain capability and toughness. It has now been reimagined for the 21st century, with a modern design and the latest technology and features.

The new generation of the classic Defender is powered by petrol and diesel engines with electrified powertrains introduced with mild-hybrid technology and a plug-in hybrid coming later. 200 hp and 240 hp diesel engines will be the backbone of the range in Ireland at launch.

Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 technology is enhanced with new Wade programme, while Configurable Terrain Response allows the driver to tailor set-up more precisely. A maximum payload of up to 900kg, static roof load of up to 300kg, towing capacity of 3,500kg and wading depth of up to 900mm help the new Defender to live up to the image as the ultimate 4×4 for overland adventures.

Four Accessory Packs – The Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban – each give the new Defender a distinct character. The exclusive First Edition model features a unique specification and will be available throughout the first model year of production.

Finbar McFall, Land Rover Global Product Marketing Director, said:

“We have experienced unprecedented demand for New Defender 110 and the official introduction of Defender 90 is sure to boost interest. As the family grows to include an efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain and commercial derivatives later this year, we look forward to continuing this success. If our experience with the Defender 110 is anything to go by, we can expect over half of customers to opt for one of the four Accessory Packs, making New Defender the most accessorised and personalised Land Rover we have ever produced.”
