1983-1990 Land Rover Defender 130

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.
With the longest wheel base of all Defenders, the Defender 130 Cab Chassis HCPU (High Capacity Pick Up) really is the ultimate utility vehicle. To allow the vehicle to be tailored to every need, the Defender 130 is also available without the HCPU rear bodywork.
