The 2021 Land Rover Defender is the new machine by the largest British carmaker. The SUV came back and it immediately started tons of rumors. Well, the base version will remain unchanged compared to the vehicle debuted this year. But, the lineup will get more members, and some of the options are electric model, baby Defender, off-road monster, luxury edition, etc.
Too many possibilities, but a lack of details about any of these. For example, sources from the UK claiming the premium version is going to cost over 100,000 pounds. The JLR picks two directions in development. From the start point, the versatile 2021 Land Rover Defender, we will see luxury and utility lineup. The second one will be the all-electric and smaller version of the bold SUV.
Why Buy 2021 Land Rover Defender?
Defender is still fresh on the market and we can’t say exactly how much it is reliable. But, the new styling is the refreshment. If you are a fan of old-school two-door SUVs, then this vehicle offers you that option with Defender 90. It is going to arrive this summer. Well, safety is questionable on these kinds of models. On the other hand, the 2021 Land Rover Defender will go to another realm with a seven-seat configuration. Well, a two-door layout is available only for editions with two rows of seats.
If you are a fan of an off-road drive, then this unit is going to offer plenty of fun. Defender is equipped with all-terrain upgrades at higher levels. Even the base model can find the way out from tough situations. The interior is equipped with a lot of hi-tech features. On the other hand, if you try to upgrade the SUV with more premium accessories, you will see the price jumping pretty easily.
2021 Land Rover Defender Specs
The launch edition gets a 2.0 engine as the main source of power. The turbocharged four-cylinder drivetrain is capable to produce 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough for on- and off-road drive. An eight-speed automatic gearbox is the power router. The configuration is called P300 and only a four-door 2021 Land Rover Defender 110 will offer you the conventional power.
If you want a V6 unit, it is a hybrid setup. The gasoline powerplant is a 3.0 mill which achieves 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of twist thanks to the electric battery. As you can guess, a two-door 2021 Land Rover Defender 90 is getting this powertrain as the only one available. A mild-hybrid unit is going to sprint 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, while the turbo-four needs two more seconds. The towing capacity is 8,200 pounds.
Trim Levels, Options, Packages
As you already noticed, there are two- and four-door Defenders. But, that is not the only choice buyers of this vehicle will have. The four-door model comes with two engines and five different trim levels. First edition is not going to be available next season. The base model is using a large 10-inch infotainment screen (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard) and the highlight of the exterior are 18-inch wheels.

The HSE makes the 2021 Land Rover Defender a luxurious SUV with a power sunroof, leather seats with heating and ventilation, and a few other features. But, that is not all. The X version uses the most advanced technologies to enhance the driving impression
The JLR has big plans with the new Defender. But, not too many of them are confirmed. The most realistic is a plug-in hybrid system, with some electric range. Well, this one could be there already next season. Further rumors are mentioning an all-electric version. Chiefs moaned about the smaller SUV, Defender Sport. This one should become the EV in the near future. This is going to be the most luxurious version of the Defender nameplate, and experts from the UK mentioned a 100k pound price tag.
The next option is the off-road SUV. Defender SE is already capable to do some tough drive, but the upcoming version is going to take on the new Ford Bronco Raptor, which will also debut in 2021 (probably with a diesel unit). Well, this would be too many upgrades for the next season, and the new SUV will get updates in the next few seasons.
