After a world record 67-year production run, the last of the original Land Rover Defender rolled off the assembly line on January 26, 2016. It was the end of a legend. Three years later, the Defender name is reborn in a stunning package, paying homage to its off-roading and carefree soul. In this latest creation from the British automaker, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is finally facing some serious competition. From its handsome façade to its rugged underpinning, nothing is left to chance to make a bold statement6

With a deep level of personalization available, no two Defenders will ever be the same. In fact, four different packages can be chosen according to cityscape or wilderness driving conditions. Moreover, a slew of unique individual accessories, such as a side-mounted storage box or an inflatable rear awning, can further customize the vehicle to each owner’s unique needs.

The interior amenities are also given modern reinterpretation. With its clean lines finished with premium quality materials, exposed bolts on door panels, and a second-to-none infotainment interface, the Defender is as breathtaking as it is revolutionary.

Capable of taming desert roads and snow-covered trails, the Defender can also wade through swamps and shallow waters. Furthermore, it doesn’t fail at making a statement in the concrete jungle. Eye-catching and ever so versatile, it is the Land Rover for everyone.

The Ingenium line of engines, produced by Jaguar Land Rover, powers the Defender. Starting from a turbocharged 4-cylinder, a 6-cylinder mild hybrid is also available for superior performance. Both are mated to an 8-speed transmission.

Staying true to its humble roots, two wheelbases are manufactured: the 101.9 inch Defender 90, and the 119 inch Defender 110.

Without a doubt, the all-new Land Rover Defender fully embodies the spirit of its predecessor. As functional as it is luxurious, it truly sets a new bar in the way sports utility vehicles are made. See it at the beautiful facilities of Decarie Motors in Montreal, Canada. Bringing together Land Rover, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Bentley under one roof, the store demonstrates the epitome of British automotive excellence.
