It’s finally here! The 2020 Land Rover Defender has started to arrive at dealers in the United States, after a 23 year hiatus. The first version to arrive is the four-door Defender 110.
For buyers that want the smaller two-door Defender 90, they will have to wait until it arrives later this summer. The pricing for the Defender 110 starts at $49,900, plus the 1,025 destination charge.
“After too long of an absence, the Land Rover Defender is once again here in the U.S.,” said Jaguar Land Rover North America President and CEO Joe Eberhardt. “In the coming months we will ramp up availability as global circumstances allow. We want to thank all those customers, enthusiasts, retailers, employees and logistics partners for their enthusiasm and commitment to making this a reality. The automotive landscape is certainly brighter with the new Defender in our showrooms, driveways and roads.”
The Land Rover Defender is available with two engine options, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque or a mild-hybrid 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with 395 hp and 406 lb-ft. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic and an all-wheel-drive system.
Inside there’s also a new Pivi Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen that comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
