The Defender 90 and 110 have quickly become popular models for Land Rover. Now, the Defender lineup is getting bigger with the addition of the 130 featuring room for up to eight passengers and even more cargo.
The Defender 130 is 13.4 inches longer than the Defender 110 to add a spacious third row of seating and 80.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third rows folded down.
Two 3.0-liter turbocharged ix-cylinder Ingenium powertrains will be available on the Defender 130. A base unit produces 295 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque while the P400 model produces 395 hp and 404 lb-ft of torque. Either engine choice will be paired with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and Land Rover’s iAWD system.
Other features include Electronic Air Suspension with up to 17 inches of articulation and Land Rover’s advanced Terrain Response system that adapts the vehicle to the specific types of off-road terrain drivers may encounter. Interior features include a larger 11.4″ Pivi Pro touchscreen, a standard advanced Cabin Air Purification Plus system, a Meridian Sound System, Four Zone Climate Control, and a global location platform called what3words that gives you accurate navigation guidance in the most remote locations on the planet.
The new larger Land Rover Defender 130 goes on sale later this year for $69,350.
