The land rover truck is a vehicle that has stood the test of time, with its rugged design and off-road prowess making it an alluring option for those looking to go off the grid in style. However, its rarity in the United States has pushed its price tag high, limiting even high-mileage Defenders to the fringes of affordability for most American buyers.
Is Range Rover very expensive?
The newest version of the Defender has an impressive range of upgrades, including a new infotainment system and a new twin-turbo V8 engine that brings the opulent SUV to an entirely new level. It still has that boxy, brute-like appeal that makes it so popular with people who want to go off the beaten path, but the latest Defender has a bit more modern luxury and comfort.
The interior of the Defender is a cross between premium and utilitarian, with exposed rivets and a magnesium beam running across the dash that provides a structurally sound space for buttons and switches for the climate-control system and driving modes. Storage in the door panels and glove compartment is plentiful, and even models without a jump-seat option have a center console with plenty of room for gear.
The Defender was available with a variety of different engines, from the 2.5-liter inline-four turbodiesel to the 3.3-liter V8 petrol that made the vehicle more spry and comfortable than it might appear at first glance. The 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel is down a couple of horses and pounds of torque from the V8, but it still makes a satisfying growl.
