The Land Rover Defender’s heart has been beating hard for over 70 years. Land Rovers were born with the desire to conquer the impossible. This spirit still lives in the Land Rover Defender’s DNA.

THE LAND ROVER SERIES I

Maurice Wilks built the prototype of the Center Steer, which has the steering wheel at the center of the dashboard. It was built on an American Willys Jeep chassis with hand-built bodywork.

As surplus paint was not available for the production of warplanes, the first units that came off the assembly line were painted with different shades of military green.

LAND ROVER SERIES II

Ten years later, the first Land Rover update, Series II, arrived. It featured a striking design with stylized flanks, rounded fenders and a basic style that would last for decades. Series II was the first Land Rover with its famous 2.25-liter petrol engine that produced 72 horsepower.

LAND ROVER SERIES IIA

1962 saw the introduction of the Series IIA. Although visually similar to the Series IIA, it had a completely different personality due to its 2.25-liter diesel engine. The Series II received a new 2.6-liter gasoline motor in 1967. In 1968, the headlights moved to the front offenders. The Series IIA’s power ranged from 63 to 69 horsepower.

LAND ROVER SERIES III

1971 saw the introduction of the Land Rover Series III. The compression ratios of the engines, decorative details and differences in the interior design made it difficult to distinguish Series III from later Series IIA models. Land Rover interiors were extensively redesigned in 1970 to accommodate padded plastics due to growing safety concerns.

DEFENDER NAMEPLATE

In 1990, Land Rover adopted the Defender nameplate for its line. This ended confusion about whether Land Rover was a made or model. Land Rover named the three models of Defender after their respective wheelbases: 90-inch (110-inch), 130-inch (130-inch), and 120-inch (130-inch).

A 2.5-liter 200 turbo diesel engine initially powered the Defender. Later, it was replaced by a five-cylinder Td5 diesel motor in 1998.

In the 2000s, the four-cylinder 122 horsepower ‘Puma’ diesel engine was standard. It was joined by a six-speed manual transmission, a modern dashboard and safety features. The 2.4-liter version was replaced by a smaller, 2.2-liter version in 2012.

THE NATURAL HABITAT OF THE DEFENDER

Many enthusiasts consider the Land Rover Defender to be the best 4×4. Many Defender owners love to return their Defender to its natural environment and give it the toughest 4×4 tests.

The Defender can also be used as an Overlanding vehicle. The Land Rover Defender is a popular vehicle in Overlanding, alongside the Jeep and some Toyota offroad models.

CUSTOMIZING A CLASSIC DEFENDER

The Land Rover Defender is a classic vehicle with a rich history and purpose. It can also be customized to make it even more special. Trust only the best if you want to customize or restore your Defender and make it an off-road wonder.

A NEW ERA FOR THE DEFENDER

This British automotive icon has been around for many decades, but there have not been any significant changes. It was reinvented as a new generation that is more capable than ever and defies traditional 4×4 rules.

After three years of suspense, Jaguar Land Rover unveiled a new generation of Land Rover Defenders in late 2019. The iconic silhouette is unchanged, but it has been redesigned. It is rugged yet elegant. The comparisons between the new Defender and the older Defender were not too long in coming. They are both similar in style and capabilities. Regardless of which one wins, both are icons.
