New 2022 Land Rover Defender Configurations

This year, the 2022 Land Rover Defender boasts three exciting new configurations, all of which are available in either the 90 (two-door) or 110 (four-door) packages.

The Defender V8 delivers a thunderous 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a 0-60 time of just 4.9 seconds. Its throttle connection has also been specifically tuned to maximize control both on and off the road.

The Defender V8 Carpathian Edition takes all the performance of the other V8 version and packages it in a uniquely assertive Carpathian Grey exterior with special black contrasts on the doors and hood.

Finally, the Defender XS Edition features specially body-colored lower cladding and wheel arches based off stunning exterior colors like Gondwana Stone, Hakuba Silver, Santorini Black, and Silicon Silver, as well as Gloss Dark Grey with contrast Diamond Turned finish wheels with 20” Style 5095 and five spokes.

In other words, these exciting trims up the performance, and up the style.
