The Defender is arguably one of the most legendary off-road vehicles in the world, known not just for its distinctive design but also its legacy-making capabilities that have been used to assist adventurers for years. The 2020 iteration is just as distinctive, and despite its modern aesthetic, is quintessentially a Defender.
Land Rover has put the Defender 2020 through the Extreme Event Test procedure — a hardcore testing standard that goes above and beyond the regular SUV tests — and has packed its contemporary offering with a host of technological features. The Defender 2020 comes with a configurable terrain response system, a twin-speed transfer box, locking center differentials and an active rear-locking differential — coming together to enable drivers to explore all terrains at ease.
Asides from its off-road capabilities, Land Rover has made the Defender more in-line with its other family-friendly models, too. Available with either a 300 BHP or 400 BHP engine, the up-to-seven seater incorporates tech such as a ten-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and trim packs such as “Urban,” “Country,” “Adventure” and “Explorer.”
Prices start at $49,900 USD for the base 300 BHP model, while the range-topping, 400 BHP X model will be priced at $80,900 USD. Find out more at your local dealer or online.
