In this 2020 Land Rover Defender review, you’ll discover how this beast of a model is ready to transform your commutes both on and off the road. Will it be your next adventure companion? Let’s dive in and find out.
An Unbeatable Performance
The 2020 Defender is marked by its capability, proving that even a luxury SUV can be unstoppable. It begins under the hood, producing great power from one of two available engines. On standard trims, the 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbocharged gas engine takes center stage, generating 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The result of this strength? A towing capacity of 8,201 pounds and acceleration from 0 to 60 MPH in just 7.7 seconds.
For an extra boost where it counts, the 3.0L turbocharged engine is available, supplying up to 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. This enables you to accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 5.8 seconds. However, these powertrains are just the beginning.
The Capability You Crave
Conquering any terrain is easy in the Land Rover Defender with assistance from the advanced All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Configurable Terrain Response. This powerful pairing lets you take on whatever lies ahead with adaptive steering, differentials, and traction control. It makes off-roading essentially as seamless as hitting the pavement. Add on the All Terrain Progress Control (APTC) feature and you’ll be able to set a speed for more challenging conditions. It’s much like cruise control for off-roading.
In addition to tackling rocky and uneven paths, the Defender can wade in up to 35.4 inches of water utilizing the Electronic Air Suspension. This heightens your Defender to make crossing creeks and other shallow waterways easy. Unsure how deep the water is? The 3D Surround Camera can tell you with its incredible Wade Sensing tool.
That Famed Land Rover Luxury
Though optimally powerful and capable, the Defender wouldn’t be a Land Rover without a suite of lavish features. Inside the cabin, you’ll find a purposeful design that caters to the needs of you and your passengers. This includes seating for up to seven, leather seating, and 14-way heated and cooled electric memory front seats.
Front and center, the all-new Pivi Pro infotainment center keeps you connected and entertained even while venturing into the unknown. The Connected Navigation Pro system keeps you on track as well, while the Interactive Driver Display provides useful information, such as maps, driving stats, and incoming phone calls. With everything you need accessible while you’re behind the wheel, you may not want to leave the driver’s seat.
