Land-Rover Defender 2020
Two decades ago, Land-Rover retired the Defender from its sport-utility vehicle lineup, leaving a gap in the lineup. Now, it’s reviving the legendary nameplate.
The all-new 2020 Defender debuted globally in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show and made its first North American appearance this week in Los Angeles.
The new Defender comes in two sizes; a two-door 90 or a longer, four-door 110. It can be powered by either a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine or a 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine that will use a mild hybrid system to improve fuel efficiency. A plug-in hybrid will eventually join the lineup.
The Defender will also feature multiple trims, including the base, S, SE and HSE. The top of the line X and limited-run First Edition will also be available.

A pop-up jump seat in between the driver and passenger seats can be added as an option in either configuration.
Different “packs” such as the Adventure pack or the Explorer pack can be layered on top to further customize the Defender to the buyer’s lifestyle.
Land Rover also created 170 Defender accessories that can be purchased at la carte. The larger 110 will go on sale starting from April 2020 and the 90 will follow later in August.
The new defender four-door 110 will star in the latest James Bond movie, No Time To Die, when it will be launched.
