Developing an incredible 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque with a roar that confirms to everyone the power it is packing; this engine powers the Land Rover Defender to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds
The 2022 Land Rover Defender will also get special touches when the V8 is found under the hood. These include tweaks to the 4x4 system, bigger brake rotors, stiffer bushings, and larger anti-roll bars. It will also get a new Dynamic Mode within its Terrain Response 2 program that will lead to sharper accelerations, a more rugged suspension, active torque vectoring to improve power distribution and an overall sportier design.
22-inch wheels, satin touchpoints and new paint colours will also be available with the V8 Defender.
Price at $125,300, the Land Rover Defender is one of the most exclusive, powerful, and luxurious Land Rover vehicles you can buy. It is the purest expression of Land Rover performance, wrapped in a package that will turn heads on the road with its looks and its exhaust note.
