2020 Land Rover Defender Yours From $50,925 In The U.S., £45,240 In Britain

The wait for an all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender is almost over and we say that because the latest generation of the iconic off-roader won’t be arriving in dealerships immediately.

The first customers able to order the 2020 Defender are the British, who can do it as of right now, with deliveries expected early next year. Like in the rest of the world, the off-roader will debut in the UK in 110 guise and five trim levels: Defender, S, SE, HSE, First Edition, and top-of-the-range Defender X.

Pricing starts at £45,240 (approximately $55,930) for the entry-level Defender model equipped with the D200 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that makes 200 PS (197 hp). All models get an eight-speed auto with a two-speed transfer case, AWD system, and Terrain Response.

2020 Land Rover Defender 110

For the money, customers will get plenty of standard features. On the outside, those include a heated windscreen, power-adjustable side mirrors with heating, automatic headlights and rain sensing wipers, LED headlights, LED taillights, 18-inch steel wheels with all-season tires, and body color roof.

The list of standard interior features consists of 8-way heated semi-powered front seats, two-zone climate control, manually adjustable steering column, Light Oyster Morzine headlining, auto-dimming interior rear view mirror, 40:20:40 folding rear seats (Defender 110), 40:20:40 fixed rear seats (Defender 90) and more.

On the tech front, the base 2020 Defender gets goodies such as a 10-inch touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Connected Navigation Pro, DAB radio, 180-watt sound system, and analogue dials with central TFT display, among other things.

Standard driver assistance tech includes a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Emergency Braking, 3D Surround Camera, ClearSight Ground View, cruise control and speed limiter, driver condition monitor, lane keep assist, 360 Park Aid, Wade Sensing, Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter.

2020 Land Rover Defender 90

The most expensive model in Britain is the range-topping P400 six-cylinder mild hybrid which kicks off at a whopping £78,800 ($97,400). In fairness, it only comes in the top-of-the-range X trim level. Exact prices for the short-wheelbase Defender 90 haven’t been set yet but Land Rover estimates a base price of around £40,000 ($49,500) while the Defender Commercial workhorse is expected to start at approximately £35,000 ($43,300).

In the United States, the 2020 Defender 110 in base trim starts at $49,900 with the P300 turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 296 hp (300 PS). The P400 mild-hybrid six-cylinder model is priced at $62,250 in SE grade and tops out at $80,900 in range-topping X grade. U.S. prices exclude a $1,025 destination and delivery fee. The new Defender 110 will arrive Stateside in spring 2020 while the Defender 90 is expected later on next year.

    I really like that defender 110 more than the 90 (still can’t touch the originals…) the 110 with the exterior accessories is nice, needs beefier tires for me, but I like it.

  • DMJ

    The Defender 90 with steel rims looks super cool, I would buy that one

    • DetrinKD

      I like that one too! Though I wish they weren’t painted white. Maybe they offer them in different colors.

  • TrevP

    Looks good!

  • Puddingpopper

    if that D90 doesnt come to the US i wouldnt be surprised

  • DetrinKD

    The price is a lot less than what I was thinking. Should be interesting to see where the 90 will start out. Guessing $46k…

  • willhaven

    $50k for a 4 cylinder – did I read that right?

  • Keven44977

    IMO probably a great looking suv and a rugged design but NOT a Defender…

  • PK

    omg that’s so cheap for this car!!!!

  • Emoto

    Will be interested in seeing how its off-road capability compares to a Wrangler Rubicon. I think, based on the axle configuration that it will be less capable than the Jeep, but maybe I’m incorrect.

    • Ben

      Suspension set up will be the first major issue with that comparison.

  • EyalN

    Are they going to make army version with guns?

  • Don’tBeSoStupid

    Really not liking this vehicle. Interior is nice but don’t like the way it looks.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      My thoughts as well. I don’t understand why they made it look like a toy on the outside.
      There was room to do much better…way better!

  • Nordschleife

    It looks kinda bland but this is the type of car you customize. I am sure with some tow hooks and a light bar this could look really good.

  • eb110americana

    The body side is really clean and has great surfacing, but the headlights and taillights (not the LED optics, but the shape) look about 15 years old already. They missed an opportunity to really set the fascias apart from the crowd. This would have looked wonderfully retro with round headlights, and the taillights would look better at the edges of the rear instead of inside that black strip.

  • ErnieB

    Cute … I can just see all the young rich college girls driving these.. especially the 2 door.

  • john1168

    No side marker lights???

  • Salih Ahzem

    Soon everyother Hollywood wannabe in LA will try to get one of these, being more than G-Wagen will help.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I never thought I’d like it, but this is actually very attractive. Especially the 4-door in white.


  • enthusia

    I really like this! Looks like a concept car. I’m glad they didn’t go the retro-style route. I think its bold and risky when designers revolutionize an icon. Obviously there are still cues of the previous model, but other than that it’s completely different.
    Maybe it’s because I’m American that I’m not really all that hurt about it not looking like the original. Most people here have never even seen a defender much less even know of its existence. And if I’m being completely honest, the old defender was pretty unremarkable in it’s design.

  • Nordschleife

    I still would’ve preferred a new gen 2 door Evoque. Btw the configurator is up for this.
