Land Rover is shaking up its Defender line-up, with the introduction of the 130 Outbound, and a new 368kW 130 V8. Joining both will be a heritage-inspired County Exterior Pack for the Defender 110, a hard top and a P400e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant.
The 130 Outbound offers unprecedented luxury interior space with all terrain capabilities. Available only with 5-seats, it features a near flat floor space in the back and a capacity for up to 1,329-litres of storage (2,516-litres with the seats down).
Available in Fuji White, Santorini Black, Carpathian Grey and Eiger Grey it features some unique exterior design enhancements, including Shadow Atlas Matt finish to the bumpers and grille insert, while side vents are finished in Anthracite.
To complement the Outbound design, 20-inch wheels finished in Gloss Black. Inside, you can opt for full Windsor leather or durable Resist fabric, offering tactile material options to best suit your lifestyle.
The Defender 130 V8 is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged engine pumping out 610Nm of torque on its way to 100km/h in just 5.7 seconds. Available in Carpathian Grey or Santorini Black, it sports quad exhausts, V8 badging and 22-inch Satin Dark Grey alloy wheels.
The new kid on the block is the Defender 110 P400e PHEV, offering exceptional fuel economy at 3.4-litres/100km. Utilising a combination of a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and 105kW electric motor, it provides a combined 297kW and 640Nm.
Quite surprisingly, it hits 100km/h faster than the V8 (at 5.6 seconds) and as an added bonus you get 52km of pure electric driving, and a 3,000kg braked towing capacity. This model is offered in X-Dynamic SE and X-Dynamic HSE trim levels.
The Defender 110 Hard Top is a heritage throwback that harks back to the traditional 1950 models which introduced the demountable roof. Solid ground clearance of 291mm and coil sprung suspension are standard, and there’s also clever lockable underfloor storage.
This model is offered exclusively with the D250 inline six-cylinder diesel ingenium engine and provides a 3,500kg braked towing capacity. A true commercial offering, it has no second or third row seating.
Finally, a new County Exterior Pack is on offer for the Defender 110 S P300 and P400 models, adding graphics along the doors and body sides, illuminated treadplates and 20-inch alloys, the latter of which can be had in Gloss White.
Available to order now, the 2024 line-up is priced from $90,400 plus on-roads for the Defender 90 S P300, with Australian deliveries due to commence in November this year. For further information, contact your local Land Rover dealer.
