The 2021 Land Rover Defender is a purpose-built sport-utility available as the short-wheelbase two-door 90 model or the long-wheelbase four-door 110. The two-door seats five (or six with the optional front jump seat) while the four-door’s standard five-seat capacity can be expanded to eight with the front jump seat and optional third-row seat.
Introduced for the 2020 model year, the new Defender (dubbed L663 in Land Rover parlance) marks a return of the iconic, off-road-optimized four-wheel-drive SUV after a 23-year absence from the North American market. Except for its name, product position, and design inspiration, it shares nothing with the more basic L316 Defender sold in the U.S. from 1993 to ’97. The 2021 Defender is available in a wide range of trims including the base 90, 90 S, 90 X-Dynamic S, 90 First Edition, 90 X, base 110, 110 S, 110 SE, 110 X-Dynamic SE, 110 X-Dynamic HSE, and 110 X. Including the $1,350 destination charge, prices range from $47,450 for a base two-door Defender 90 to $84,350 for a loaded four-door Defender 110 X.
