The network turned out to be documents for a new generation of Land Rover Defender

July 2, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Details about the long-awaited update for the Land Rover Defender were provided in the form of a slide show, which was broadcast on a closed presentation. The presentation of the novelty will take place in the coming months.

As we approach the date of the official debut of the next generation of the British Defender SUV, there are more and more details about this car. The direct competitor to the German Mercedes G-Class has been widely covered in the news over the past few weeks thanks to numerous spy shots, official teasers and not yet confirmed (officially) reports.

The new report, which was published by journalists of the foreign edition of Autocar, gives a pretty good understanding of what to expect from the revived SUV. The publication publishes photos of slides with a closed presentation, where we can learn almost everything that we would like to know about the new Defender.

The model will be offered in three versions: 90, 110 and 130. Starting from March 2020, sales of the version with index 90 will start. This version of the SUV will have a length of 4,323 mm, a width of 1,999 mm and a height of 1,927 mm, and the size of the wheelbase will be 2,587 mm. The first sales start for Defender 110 in October of this year with the following dimensions: length 4,758 mm, width 1,999 mm, height 1,916 mm and wheelbase of 3,022 mm. In August 2020, is expected to appear in the sale of a more powerful Defender 130, as an SUV 2021 model year. Such a car can boast a length of 5,100 mm, a width of 1,999 mm, a height of 1,915 mm and a wheelbase of 3,022 mm.

Seeing how the Defender 110 and 130 will have the same wheelbase, we can assume that the larger of them will have an increased rear overhang for increased payload. It is known that Defender 90 will have either five or six seats. This means that the latter is likely to have three seats in front and three behind. 110 will be available in five, six and seven seater configurations. As for the large Defender 130 Premium Explorer, this car will get eight seats.

As for the composition of the motor range, the same documents show that versions 90 and 110 will be available with three petrol engines and three diesels, all of which are connected to the automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The basic petrol version will be the P300, followed by the P400 and the plug-in hybrid P400e, while the diesels will be labeled D200, D240 and D300.

Due to the low resolution of the images, we cannot disassemble all the details, but the D200, D240 and petrol P300 diesel engines have four-cylinder 2.0-liter engines with 430 Nm of torque for diesel engines and 400 Nm for gasoline counterparts. The more powerful six-cylinder D300 boasts a 3.0-liter engine at 650 Nm. The hybrid PHEV P400 with an electrified 2.0-liter unit has a torque of 400 to 645 Nm due to the electrical component, while the usual P400 with the usual 3.0-liter six-cylinder has 550 Nm.

One of the slides shows that the SUV will be offered in the following trim levels: Standard, S, SE, HSE and X. Depending on the version, the cars will receive adaptive matrix LED headlights, 18-position adjustable leather leather seats, 12-inch digital dashboard, the Meridian audio system with 14 speakers, 20-inch wheels and a host of safety features and driver assistance.
