Pricing for the eagerly-anticipated Land Rover Defender has gone public. Here's how much the 2 derivatives will cost.
Land Rover has announced pricing for the Defender 110 which is going on sale in South Africa in June 2020, as well as pricing for the short wheelbase 90, which will follow later on in the year.
Interest in the vehicle has been massive, with over 12 000 South Africans using the online configurator and 9 000 brochures have been downloaded. When it launches, the new Land Rover Defender will be available with 4 accessory packs (Explorer, Adventure, Country, Urban).
In terms of engines, petrol, diesel and hybrid will be offered for both 110 and 90 body styles, while trim levels will range from the top-of-the-range Defender X models, as well as Standard, S, SE, HSE specification packs. There will also be an exclusive First Edition model.
Kicking off the range will be the D240, with its 2.0-litre 4-cylinder twin-turbocharged diesel motor. It produces 177 kW and 430 Nm, and is capable of a 0-100 kph sprint in 9 seconds. Next up is the P300 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor with 221 kW and 400 Nm. It's a touch brisker, with an 8 second claimed sprint time to 100 kph. Finally, the P400 is a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder turbocharged petrol packing 294 kW and 523 Nm, and it will be the quickest Defender with a 6 second sprint to 100 kph. All vehicles feature all-wheel drive and all have automatic gearboxes.
As for off-roading credibility, the Defender has 291 mm of ground clearance. The long-wheelbase 110 has an approach angle of 38-degrees, a 28-degree break-over angle and a 40-degree departure angle (in off-road mode). It will also wade through water 900 mm deep. We're looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the new Land Rover Defender so stay tuned for more info.
