2020 Land Rover DEFENDER - Adventure Pack Introduce https://youtu.be/XID2IPsrrwg

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is a thoroughly modern adventure machine that carries on the storied history of the iconic nameplate with authenticity.

While drivers know the Defender as the simple rectangular body-on-frame, solid-axle, no-computer, off-road icon, the new Defender flips the script on nearly all those things. The 2020 Defender is a uni-body, fully independent-suspension supercomputer.

You might have negative thoughts about all of the above in an off-road vehicle. But if you step back for a second and realize the age we live in, including all the emissions and safety regulations, you’ll realize all these things are necessary to bring you a vehicle that can live up to the capabilities of the original all while meeting current buyer expectations.

It’s been 22 years since a Defender was sold new on U.S. soil. The Defender was relatively unchanged for its continuous 67-year worldwide production run of over 2 million vehicles. Other off-road SUVs, like the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota 4Runner, and even the Mercedes G-Wagon, have evolved over time. The Defender, however, stayed nearly the same until now.

This iconic British vehicle will now be made in Slovakia, is owned by an Indian corporation, and will finally be back in American new car dealerships in 2020.
If you’ve been following the much-anticipated launch of this new Defender at all, you’ll realize that there really aren’t many surprises. The one pleasant surprise is the starting price for the Defender 110 four-door model — about $50,000.

While not inexpensive, that’s quite a bit lower than many expected for this iconic vehicle. Pricing will initially top out at well over $90,000, however, which is more in line with what many thought this vehicle would cost.

I’m also impressed and surprised at the level of comfort and refinement Land Rover built into this latest Defender. A stark contrast to the old Defender, this new machine offers things like heated seats in all three rows! It also has advanced smart LED headlights that dim in sections when it detects oncoming traffic to avoid blinding other drivers.
My favorite configuration would have to be a Fuji White with black roof Defender 110 SE with P400 mild-hybrid engine package — which gets from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds — and Adventure Pack. The Adventure Pack includes a 1.7-gallon pressurized portable rinse system, trunk-mounted air compressor, 24L exterior side-mounted gear carrier, and a 6.3-gallon seat backpack.

I’d also add factory accessories like the roof rack, side-mounted roof ladder, raised air intake (aka snorkel), winch, and awning. This configuration of Defender would probably set me back well over $76,000.
