Land Rover launches larger Defender 130 SUV

Alongside the critically acclaimed Defender 90 and Defender 110, the Defender 130 adds another dimension to the all-conquering family of all-terrain vehicles, with adventuring opportunities for up to eight adults across three rows of full-size seating.

Like the Defender 90 and 110, the new 130 body design borrows its name from the original Defender family, inspired by the longest model in the line-up. A host of exterior and interior design enhancements and technologies distinguish the new Defender 130 too.

Uniquely balancing comfort with customary Defender durability and capability, the outside of the new model features an extended rear overhang, redesigned tail lights, and two sunroofs (including the standard panoramic one).

The Defender 130 has its own colour palette too, with a new, exclusive Sedona Red option. The exterior is also complemented by an optional Extended Bright Pack, adding Ceres Silver Satin finish around lower body cladding and front/rear skid plates in Noble Chrome.

Inside, thoughtful storage and convenience solutions are provided for every passenger across all three rows of seating. The interior design also features new colour and material options, providing an amplified all-terrain experience.

The latest connected technologies and chassis systems – including a new, larger 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen, standard electronic air suspension and cabin air purification plus – provide the ultimate support and comfort for modern off-road excursions.

Ensuring adventures begin and end effortlessly, now all Defenders with keyless entry – including the Defender 130 – feature approach unlock and automated walkaway lock.

To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Land Rover is also gifting Her Majesty and the British Red Cross a specially commissioned Defender 130 to support operations in the UK.

Land Rover engineers will work with representatives from the charity, of which Her Majesty The Queen is a patron, to adapt the Defender 130 before it goes into service later this year.

Land Rover has supported the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) since 1954 and is proud to maintain its relationship with the world’s largest humanitarian organisation.

The new Defender 130 will be offered in Australia in SE specification with both D300 and P400 powertrains, with the former priced at $124,150 and the latter at $131,650. Both are plus on-roads.

It comes with a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty, 5-years roadside assist and a 5-year fixed price service plan. Orders for the 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 will open on 1 August. You can build your own online. If you need finance, visit CreditOne.
