Land Rover Defender priced from $69,990 in Australia

Land Rover has confirmed local Australian pricing for its highly anticipated next-generation Defender.

THE WAIT IS over, and we finally have pricing for the all-new Defender 110 which will arrive in Australia in June next year.

Priced from $69,990 plus on-road costs, the long-wheelbase 110 (the short-wheelbase 90 will arrive later) will give buyers three different engine options, all mated to an eight-speed automatic (no manual!) and four-wheel drive system with two-speed transfer gearbox.

Commencing proceedings is the D200, powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine producing 147kW and 430Nm priced at $69,990 plus on-road costs.

Standard equipment includes an apparently tough as nails four-wheel drive system with hill start assist and hill decent control. There are also heated electrically adjustable seats, keyless start, a 10.0-inch infotainment system with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, electronic air suspension underneath and 18-inch alloy wheels with a full-size spare on the back, just like the old one.

We also know from playing with the US Defender configurator that there will be a ton of options and packs to customise with too.

Moving on, the mid-spec 110 D240 is priced from $75,900 and it comes with a more powerful 177kW, 430Nm version of the same 2.0L diesel turbo engine. However, the D240 will come with further trim options including S ($83,800), SE ($91,300), and First Edition ($102,500).

The lone petrol engine is the most powerful engine ever mated to a production Land Rover Defender and brings 48-volt electric hybrid technology. The 3.0-litre straight-six twin-scroll turbo engine develops 297kW and 550Nm via an eight-speed auto to all four wheels. Pricing for this P400 starts at $95,700 in S trim, followed by the SE ($103,100), HSE ($112,900) and finally the $137,100 flagship X. That’s the most expensive model in the lineup which is good enough to run from 0-100km/h in almost 6.0 seconds flat.

Available safety equipment for the new Land Rover Defender includes AEB, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition with speed limiter and a 360-degree surround view camera.

The slightly better equipped S trim models gain 19-inch alloy wheels, nicer interior trims and automatic headlights; SE further adds blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert; HSE brings 20-inch alloys with plush interior appointments, keyless entry and Meridian surround sound system, and finally the D240 First Edition and P400 X have unique trims and elements, fully automatic LED matrix headlights, panoramic sunroof and a refrigerator front console bin
