: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

What's New

The 2023 Land Rover Defender carries over largely unchanged. All trims now feature an 11.4-inch touchscreen with an updated infotainment system, the trims, and their content, have been shuffled a bit.

Choosing Your Land Rover Defender

There are five trims available: Standard, S, SE, X-Dynamic SE, X, V8, and Carpathian Edition and base prices range from $53,050 to $115,950.

While the standard trim is now limited to the four-door model, expect to pay about $3,000 more to step up to the 110.

Engine Choices

The Defender offers three engine choices while a permanent four-wheel-drive system is standard. The six-cylinder incorporates a 48-volt electrical system and small battery pack for extended engine-off periods and acceleration assist that allows it to deliver improved fuel efficiency despite its significant power advantage.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Defender is available in two sizes, 90 and 110. The Defender 90 is 180.4 inches in length, has two doors and seats up to five whereas the Defender 110 is 197.6 inches long and wears four doors, and can seat up to seven with the optional third-row as part of the Family Pack ($2,100 plus other required packages). Both models are about 79 inches wide and 78 inches tall. Expectedly, rear legroom shrinks from 39 inches in the 110 to 36.6 inches in the two-door, and cargo room drops from 34 cubic feet behind the second row to 15.6 cubic feet and from 78.8 cubic feet with the rear seat folded to 58.3 cubic feet.

The Defender 90 and 110 are both rated for towing up to 7,716 pounds.

Safety Features

All Defenders are equipped with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot assist, rear cross-traffic monitor, and traffic sign recognition. Adaptive cruise control is optional for $1,200 and is standard on the X trim and above. The S trim adds automatic high-beam assist.

The Defender has not been rated by IIHS or NHTSA.


The Defender features an 11.4-inch touchscreen with an updated infotainment system that incorporates Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, SiriusXM, and HD Radio and offers WiFi through an Online Pack with Data Plan for $360.
