Land Rover’s Classic Division has developed an update program for the Defender 90 and 110 SUVs, which were produced from 1996 to 2016. The project provides for the modernization of both the stylistic and technical parts.

For example, the owners of SUVs are offered to equip cars with special 18-inch wheels and advanced braking mechanisms. In addition, a suspension upgrade kit is available with new springs, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and other components.

Finally, there is a revision program for the 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. Engine output will increase by 39 liters. with. – up to 160 horsepower (463 Nm of torque).

Recall that in September 2019, Land Rover will introduce the next-generation Defender SUV, which will retain the characteristic angular shape of the body, and also get some features that make it similar to the prototype DC100, which was introduced in 2011.

The next Land Rover Defender will be built on a new lightweight chassis with independent suspension. It is assumed that the SUV will lose its V8 engines, which will be replaced by new two-liter diesel and gasoline “turbo fours” of the Ingenium family. It is possible that the engine range will also replenish the V6 units. In addition, the SUV will have a modification with a hybrid power plant.
