The 2020 Land Rover Defender will have its official public premiere at the 2019 IAA in Frankfurt am Main in September. The automaker is going to offer it in three different sizes: 90, 110 and 130.
The new-gen Land Rover Defender makes in debut in 2 months. Recently it has become known there will be three versions with different wheelbase sizes.
The redesigned vehicle will be manufactured not at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant in the UK, but at the facility in Slovakia.
There will be a 2-door Defender 90 (5- or 6-seater) with a 101.9-inch wheelbase, the tallest of the trio, a 4-door Defender 110 (5-, 6- or 7-seater) with a 119.0-inch wheelbase and a longer 4-door Defender 130 (8-seater, 119.0 inches for the wheelbase too).
Both the 110 and the 130 are 75.4 inches tall, or about 0.5 inch shorter than the Defender 90.
The first to enter the market this fall (October) will be the Defender 110, followed by the 90 model in March 2020 and then by the Defender 130 in August 2020, which arrives as a 2021 model.
A 2.0-liter turbo 300 hp (295 lb-ft) engine, a 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid 404 hp (295 lb-ft) one, as well as a 3.0-liter turbo V6 motor producing 400 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque are expected.
The 110 and 130 models will share the same powertrains.
A pickup truck and a version with a removable roof are expected to join as well.
