A Look at the Four-Cylinder Engine in the 2023 Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender is a true legend in the luxury off-road segment thanks to a long legacy of capability and refinement. It has made a very successful return with updated looks, modernized powertrains and all the ruggedness we know and love from this truly adventurous vehicle that can take you anywhere. This year, the Defender gets a few updates, including the addition of a new three-row variant. It is available with a great choice of powertrain, namely with an efficient four-cylinder, turbocharged engine that pushed the limits of performance while keeping fuel consumption at check.

Let's take a look at the four-cylinder turbocharged engine in the 2023 Land Rover Defender to see what it's all about.

The turbocharged four-cylinder unit in the 2023 Land Rover Defender delivers plenty of power

Engineers at Land Rover have always taken performance seriously. And that also counts in its smaller, but mightier engine, the P300. This four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-litre unit delivers 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to all four wheels for optimal capability on the trails and in difficult road conditions. This powertrain enables the Defender to go from 0-100 km/h in only 7,1 seconds.

Performance doesn't necessarily rime with inefficiency. That's why the P300 engine will let you do more with less. Thanks to impressive fuel consumption ratings of 12.8 L/100 km in the city and 10.9 L/100 km on the highway, the Defender will not break the bank at the pump.

The P300 engine is available in two body configurations

The powerful P300 engine is available in the Defender 90 and 110. Both of them are very capable inside and out. For example, the 110 version can haul up to 1,875 litres. It also offers an optional 5+2 configuration so you can bring extra passengers along.

But what's events more impressive is that the P300 lets you tow up to 7,700 lb of whatever you need to bring along on your escapades, whether it be a boat, ATVs or even a camper!

The 2023 Defender offers performance, style, off-road capabilities and refinement in a rugged, yet very versatile package. And its P300 engine pairs performance and efficiency like no other. Come see it today at our dealership!
