To make up for a lack of the classic Defender Camel Trophy Edition in the U.S., Land Rover has now created one for the 2022 Defender model instead, making it exclusive to the North American market.

The car itself is based on the Defender X-Dynamic SE, which is powered by a six-cylinder engine pushing out 395 horsepower. Aside from being dressed in the ultra-iconic yellow shade of the Camel Trophy vehicles, the special edition receives a vintage-styled logo on both doors and a black trim package to offer a sleek dash of contrast. To prepare you for the wilderness, Land Rover has also equipped the car with a new front bumper, a skid plate, an expedition roof platform, a ladder to access it, mud flaps to keep things relatively clean along with rubber floor mats on the interior, a winch installation kit, a tow hitch and an air compressor.

Other standard features from its base model include an air suspension system, an electronically locking rear differential, heavily treaded tires for off-roading, off-road cruise control, terrain management, as well as a heated windshield, steering wheel, washer nozzles and headlight washers.

Limited to just 220 examples made, the 2022 Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition will start at $91,350 USD, which includes a two-person entry into the U.S. Trophy Competition, a contest similar to the original Camel version.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Toyota has unveiled its 2022 Tundra.
