2022 Land Rover Defender V-8 First Look


By autogos.com

Our 2021 SUV of the Year adds a screaming 518-hp V-8 engine option for 2022.

Under the Defender's sculpted aluminium exterior, Land Rover is packing its well-known 5.0-liter supercharged V-8.

Pick the Defender 90 V-8, and 0-60 mph takes a wild 4.9 seconds.

Up until it achieves a very constrained peak speed of 149 mph, it will continue to defy the rules of aerodynamics.

To assist slow down the vehicle, the bigger 15.0-inch front brake rotors are hidden by the new 22-inch wheels.

A really calming colour scheme, especially with the Narvik Black roof on the first two choices.

With a base price of $101,750 and an additional $108,550 needed to upgrade to the 110 V-8 Carpathian Edition, the 110 V-8 isn't significantly more expensive.

Most Defender levels may add the Extended Black package, and a newly available 11.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display is also an option.
