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, sporting a modern visual identity and the latest technology and features. It’s powered by powerful 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.

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.

The new Land Rover Defender is available in 90 and 110 body designs (short and long wheelbases), with six trims available: Defender, S, SE, HSE, Defender X and First Edition. Commercial models will join the line-up later in the year.

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.

The Defender 110 First Edition model will be available to view on the upcoming Defender Ireland Tour.

Irish prices start from €68,160 for the Defender 110 2.0 SD4 AWD Auto model.
