Land Rover improves Defender range
Land Rover’s new Defender has been through a major upgrading process for its 2007 model year incarnation.
It features a new 2.4-litre common rail diesel engine, a six-speed gearbox with a wide ratio spread for better off-road and cruising abilities, a new fully integrated fascia, revised seating, and new heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
Land Rover managing director Phil Popham said: “We’re building on Defender’s success with a package of improvements that will extend its off-road abilities even further, while transforming on-road refinement and comfort.
"These changes represent a significant vote of confidence in a product which is the foundation of Land Rover’s reputation for off-road excellence; we believe these enhancements will win the hearts and minds of new and existing customers alike.”
