Revealed globally in 2019, the new Defender is a marked departure from the last model to be produced about five years ago. In fact, the last Defender saw little to no changes to the one that did duty for almost 50 years.

The new Defender 110 is set to launch in South Africa in June 2020, while the short-wheelbase Defender 90 will arrive later in 2020.

Land Rover SA said in an official press release: “New Defender is the toughest and most capable Land Rover ever made and delivers 21st century connectivity with unstoppable off-road performance. The first Defender 110 models will be delivered to customers in June this year with three-door, short-wheelbase Defender 90 models due toward the end of the year.”

The automaker says that a range of petrol and diesel engines will make up the range, while, at launch, the range-topping model at launch will be a P400 straight-six petrol with mild-hybrid (MHEV) engine technology. Trim levels for both bodies comprise top of the range Defender X models, as well as Standard, S, SE, HSE specification packs.

An exclusive First Edition model features a unique specification and will be available throughout the first year of production.
