2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year - Land Rover Defender

2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year – Land Rover Defender

In a historic victory, the Land Rover Defender has received the prestigious honor of being named the 2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year. In a crowded field 28 new and refreshed SUVs, the Defender earned top honors.

“To conclude, summarize, and even proselytize, the new Land Rover Defender bowled us over: the design, both inside and out; the wonderful synchronization of the stout engine and yeoman transmission; the exceptional ride quality; its ambient nature; the baked-in, go-anywhere-on-the-planet capability; and its amazing value.” — MotorTrend

What the Critics Say

There aren’t many SUVs that are as capable as the Defender, and they mostly come from Land Rover’s lineup. Some may consider the Jeep Wrangler a cheaper alternative, but the Defender has it beat when it comes to on-road refinement and available luxury appointments.” — Car and Driver
The 2022 Land Rover Defender SUV is made specifically for off-road adventures. Yet it’s also civilized and fitted with modern gadgets. For those who need to divide their time between the untamed and the urbane — or just want to give that impression — the Land Rover Defender can complete the picture.” — Kelley Blue Book

What’s New for 2022

While there are numerous updates to the Land Rover Defender 110 for the 2022 model year, perhaps the biggest change is the introduction of a muscular 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine option producing 518 horsepower. This potent engine is available on the new Carpathian Edition trim level that features exterior paint with a black-painted roof and tailgate, black-painted tow hooks, Xenon Blue brake calipers, and exclusive Carpathian Edition badging.

Land Rover Defender Capability

Proven Performance & Capability

Drivers will be able to choose between a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, badged P300, and a six-cylinder Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) powertrain, badged P400. P300 variants use an advanced twin-scroll turbocharged for balanced power delivery and a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds. The P400 MHEV powertrain harvests energy normally lost during deceleration and redeploys it to optimize performance. Both come paired to a smooth and responsive eight-speed ZF® automatic transmission and twin-speed transfer box. For the ultimate in performance, upgrade to the available 5.0-liter supercharged V8 to experience a muscular 518 horsepower. A maximum towing capacity of 8,201 pounds and available Advanced Tow Assist helps highlight the tremendous capability of the Defender 110. Configurable Terrain Response® makes its debut in the Defender 110 (standard on X derivatives and optional on others), allowing drivers to fine-tune the setup of the vehicle to suit the conditions. A fully-independent suspension, twin-speed transfer box, and permanent four-wheel drive ensure no obstacle will stand in your way.
