The land rover 110 defender is one of the most iconic and versatile SUVs on the market. It’s available in four- and five-door body styles, with a variety of engine and transmission options.
Is Defender cheaper than Range Rover?
The base Defender 110 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four that produces 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is 17 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway in the 110 (the 90 is 18/21/19). The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic with full-time four-wheel drive and locking differentials.
A more powerful engine is also offered in the 110, a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 444 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed auto with full-time four-wheel drive and a low-range transfer case.
It’s available in a variety of trim levels, including the Standard, S, SE and X-Dynamic SE. Each model is backed by an infotainment system that runs Jaguar Land Rover’s Pivi Pro software that’s faster than its previous InControl Touch Pro system and offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Inside, the Defender 110 has a roomy cabin that’s spacious for a vehicle of its size and equipped with several handy storage areas. Passenger headroom and legroom are ample, even in the front center jump seat.
The third row is a little bit squishy and hard to access in the four-door model, but the new 110 and 130 models are much more usable, offering three seatbelts across and plenty of adult-friendly legroom for passengers. It’s also the only three-row luxury SUV on the market that can accommodate a family of eight.
