2020 Land Rover Defender Officially Arrives on US Shores

Land Rover’s long talked about new Defender is here. Defender will actually be a model line, as is Discovery and Range Rover. Three initial Defender models are the Defender 90, 110 and 130, which correspond with the size of the model. Our first Defenders are the 110 model and have a starting price of $50,925.

Despite having a well-known (in the overlanding community) name and, indeed, some legit off-roading specs, Land Rover wants you to know that the Defender has a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with over-the-air software updates as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

That said, Land Rover still claims this new Defender is the “most off-road capable Land Rover vehicle ever.” In all fairness, it does include all-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer box, a rear (not under-floor) mounted spare tire and a healthy amount of ground-clearance provided by the fully independent suspension. Its platform is all-new and all-aluminum—Land Rover named it D7x.

Land Rover plans to slowly ramp up supply as it’s feasible to do so safely, but now you know the process has started. It's ironic that the pandemic is slowing the Defender supply process down, because off-roading and overlanding are great ways to socially distance.
