2022 Land Rover Defender: Even More to Explore

The Land Rover Defender returns in 2022 with new available V8 engine, new colors, technology and luxurious special editions. Available with two or four doors, the new 2022 Land Rover Defender gets even more capable and comfortable for the 2022 model year. Let’s see what is new for 2022 in MotorTrend’s 2021 SUV of Year!

New V-8 Engine

The supremely capable new Land Rover Defender now comes with an even more powerful 5.0L V8 engine that pumps out 518 horsepower with 461 lb-ft of torque. The new V8 engine is standard on the 2022 Defender 90 and 110 V8 and the stylish new 2022 Defender 90 and 110 V8 Carpathian Edition. The base engine is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder with 296 horsepower and powers the Defender 90/110 and 90/110 S models. Upgrade to the new Defender X-Dynamic S, X-Dynamic SE, X-Dynamic HSE or new Defender X to get a 3.0L inline-6 with 395 horsepower. AWD is standard on all new Land Rover Defender models.

King of the Off-Road

The new Land Rover Defender gets up to 11.5 inches of ground clearance and can wade through up to 35 inches of water, beating out competitors like the Jeep Wrangler. Unibody construction, locking differentials, independent suspension, and available air springs allow you to navigate any terrain, from the rocky and wet to impressively smooth sailing on paved roads. Just because the new Defender is built for off-roading, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a luxurious ride during your daily commute.

18-inch wheels come standard on the new 2022 Defender but go up to 22 inches on the new Land Rover Defender V8. Use available Terrain Response® 2, Configurable Terrain Response®, All-Terrain Process Control, and Advanced Tow Assist to tackle any terrain like an expert.

Land Rover Luxury

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Land Rover without plenty of premium comfort features and advanced technology. Inside the new 2022 Land Rover Defender, enjoy standard 8-way power and heated front seats, wireless charging pad with signal booster, auto-dimming rearview mirror, HD radio with SiriusXM®. Also new for 2022, Pivi Pro now comes standard. Featuring Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, over-the-air updates and a super fast connection, Pivi Pro feels more like using your smartphone than a cumbersome infotainment system.

The 2022 Land Rover Defender includes a host of standard driver-assist and safety features, including:

  • 3D surround camera with ClearSight ground view
  • LED headlights
  • Driver condition monitor
  • Wade sensing
