Used Land Rover Defender
The Land Rover Defender is one of the most recognisable models from the brand. It was first developed in the 1980s from the original Land Rover series and used to be called the Land Rover Ninety. After this, it was called the Land Rover One Ten and now is called the name we know it as - the Defender. The vehicle was quick to gain a reputation for its rugged stance and versatility, just as good on the roof as it was off of it. The Land Rover Defenders were made continuously for sixty-seven years before production finished in January of 2015. A brand new Land Rover Defender came to be in 2019, although it doesn't share any technological similarities or components with that of prior models.
The Land Rover Defender in the UK
The UK and European market is one of the highest for Land Rover Defender's and much of their marketing is targeted towards these consumers. Some of the biggest changes to the Defender from older models were made in Spring 2007 in order to meet emission and safety regulations, including some big changes to the drivetrain. The engine's lubrication and sealing system were upgraded to ensure it could withstand both wet and dusty conditions and it had much better speed control. Other changes included to the interior, with the dashboard and interior fittings being re-designed to look more contemporary.
The 2007 Defender also changed the way the seats are arranged, going from four inward-facing seats, to two forward-facing seats, taking it from a six or seven-seater, to a four-seater. While these changes did alter the vehicle, the exterior remained vastly similar to its predecessors. More updates came in 2021 where the engine was replaced and a soft top body style was introduced, designed to appeal to the wider market.
Options for the Land Rover Defender
Over the Land Rover Defender's lifespan, there has been a whole myriad of body styles and three different wheelbases. Most models are diesel, with the earliest coming with a 107bhp 200TDi. In 1994 this became an 11bhp 300TDi which was known for being durable if a little loud, then in 2998 the 122bhp TD5 engine came along. Following this, Defenders got a 120bhp 2.4 engine from Ford, which is the type most often used when driving on motorways due to their increased power and acceleration. In 2012 a 122bhp 2.2 diesel engine was standard with the car and was fitted with a diesel particulate filter to ensure it was compliant with emission levels.
