2003-2012 Land Rover Defender

Our rating:
 9/10 from 1 reviewers.

With a pedigree of 50 years of Land Rover innovation and technology, the Defender continues to evolve. Wading, towing, winching, carrying, protecting: it's all part of everyday life for Defender. Defender has real pulling power whether hauling trailers on and off-road, or reeling and positioning with its powerful accessory winches. Defender's stance, traction, grip, and dependable power make it the world's favourite towing and winching vehicle.
At Defender's heart is the Td5 5 cylinder 2.5 litre diesel engine. With a torque of 300Nm at 1950 rpm, it not only performs superlatively in its class but actually out-performs many larger capacity diesel engines. Permanent four-wheel drive ensures the Defender is sure-footed and unstoppable, whether climbing mountain trails, crossing desert sands, or deep-wading through rivers. Permanent four-wheel drive ensures power is sent to all four wheels continuously, on or off-road. For really sticky situations, the Centre Diff-lock can be used to literally lock out the differential action and force power to be split equally between each axle for maximum traction.
Whether it's towing, climbing or off-road driving, control of engine torque is provided through a robust dual range transfer box. This gives drivers more control and the flexibility of ten forward and two reverse gears. A range of stylish and robust accessories have been conceived for Defender to further add to its design integrity and extend and tailor its capabilities.
The Defender 90 offers a compact and capable package.
