Good things come to those who wait. Land Rover announced the initial deliveries of the all-new 2020 Defender 110 have begun to arrive at retailers across the United States. Every US retailer will receive an initial supply of vehicles ensuring where enthusiasts can come and see the vehicle as well as vehicle deliveries can begin.
The Defender is the most off-road capable Land Rover vehicle that the manufacture has produced. While staying true to the brand’s iconic design and reputation this vehicle sets the bar to a new level.
“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 brand has developed the new all-aluminum D7x platform that delivers the stiffest Land Rover body ever created – three times more rigid than traditional body-on-frame designs. The New Defender is also the first Land Rover to feature Configurable Terrain Response, allowing drivers to fine-tune a range of settings to suit the conditions more precisely.
The short rear overhang on the Defender is made possible by mounting the spare wheel externally, rather than under the rear floor, where it is readily accessible off-road. The trademark side-hinged rear door is further engineered to accommodate any of the available wheel and tire combinations to go along with the fully-independent suspension, twin-speed transfer box, and permanent four-wheel-drive.
To complete the functional, durable, and flexible interior with exposed structural elements, the iconic 4×4 debuts the new Pivi Pro infotainment system featuring a 10-inch touchscreen, intuitive interface, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while Software-Over-The-Air updates allow customers to access the latest software updates remotely. The always-on design provides instant responses, even when starting the vehicle for the first time.
Owners are able to further tailor the New Defender to their lifestyle through the fitment of four distinct optional Accessory Packs (Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban), as well as an available 170 individual accessories. The 2020 Land Rover Defender 110 starts at $49,900 and will be something other manufactures in the off-road segment will need to pay attention.
