We’re still a few months away from the official debut of Land Rover’s Defender 2020, but the new leaks reveal there will be three different sizes of the Defender. You’ll be able to get your Defender in three or five-door shapes with seating up to eight people.
It has been revealed the Defender will be offered in three body styles aimed at three different kinds of customers. The first is the Defender 90 – Does that sounds familiar?
The new D90 will be a three-door model available with either five or six seats. This one is a foot longer than the previous short-wheelbase Defender.
The next size up will be the Defender 110 (another historic designation), and this model will be sold as either a five, six or seven-seat model. It will be 17 inches longer than the new Defender 90.
The biggest version of the Defender will be the Defender 130, which was previously only offered as a double-cab truck. Now though, it’ll be an even bigger five-door SUV than the 110 (by an additional 14 inches) and this one will seat eight people!
Land Rover’s approach to marketing these new Defender models is somewhat unique. The smallest version will be the range’s halo model, though whether that means it gets sexier engine options or more off-road goodies isn’t yet clear. The 110 and 130 will be the volume models. Land Rover is referring to the 110 as the “Definitive Defender,” while the 130 is being called the “Premium Explorer,” according to our source. We have no idea how much room there will be between trims in terms of pricing, or even where pricing will start for the Defender.
We think this is probably the most exciting model to come from the Land Rover brand in years. What do you think?
