When you're on the trails and all you want are the comforts of home, the Defender interior has it. Relax in the available Windsor leather and find your ideal level of support with the 14-way power adjustable front seats.

Stay Connected With Pivi Pro


The standard Pivi Pro infotainment system is there to keep you connected whether you're way off the map or right around the corner. It comes with an 11.4-inch, curved touchscreen that gives you access to connective technologies, like:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • HD Radio®
  • Available Meridian Sound System

Out on the trails, it's important to stay connected to the world around you. That's why the 2022 Defender comes with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. They'll put your favorite apps and most popular playlists right at your fingertips. There's also the available Online Pack with a Data Plan. It comes with Wi-Fi, so you'll always have a reliable signal.

When your favorite tune comes on, you'll have the 10 speakers of the available Meridian Sound System cranking out the beats. The more immersive Meridian Surround Sound System will put you in the front row of your own personal concert hall. It comes with 14 speakers and a booming subwoofer.

Is the Defender Safe?


Whether you're out on the trails or trudging through the concrete jungle, you'll have all the confidence you need with the Land Rover Defender. It's available with a litany of driver-assistance features. Some of them include:

  • Driver Condition Monitor
  • Cruise Control and Speed Limiter
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Emergency Braking
  • Traffic Sign Recognition

Wade Sensing is a unique off-road safety feature that will come in handy when a deep stream or floodplain stands between you and your remote destination. The Defender has a wading depth of 35.4 inches, and with this innovative system, you'll receive an alert once the water gets close to that depth.

Once your adventure comes to an end, conquering that crowded parking lot should be a breeze. It will be with the Defender. The available 3D Surround Camera will give you a better view of everything around the vehicle, so you can shimmy into even the tightest spot.

2022 Land Rover Defender Configurations


The Land Rover Defender offers three different engine options. The first is the standard 2.0L I4. It kicks out 296 horsepower. If you want to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.8 seconds, you'll want the available 395-horsepower, 3.0L I6 MHEV engine. The potent 5.0L Supercharged V8 closes out the lineup with a muscular 518 horsepower.

Which is better, the Defender 90 or the 110? Choosing between these two body configurations will depend on exactly what you're looking for. The Defender 90 is a 2-door SUV. Its more compact size is ideal for off-roading and maneuvering around and over obstacles. It's also inspired by the original Defender.

The Defender 110 is a more spacious 4-door SUV. It can seat up to seven passengers with the available third-row seats, so you'll be able to bring along more of your fellow explorers. It also boasts more cargo space thanks to its longer wheelbase.

Have You Seen the 2022 Defender Trophy Edition?


The 2022 Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition will pay tribute to this iconic vehicle's legacy of off-road adventure. It's based on the Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE configuration, and there will only be 220 units offered in the United States. It also includes a bevy of standard off-road features, including:

  • Expedition roof rack
  • Front undershield
  • Deployable ladder
  • Winch installation kit
  • Integrated air compressor
  • Deep sided and loadspace rubber mats

The Trophy edition is more than just an SUV, it's an experience. The first 90 buyers were sent to a 1-day off-road adventure in the Trophy Competition held at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C. The overall winner is going on to compete at an extreme competition at Eastnor Castle in the U.K.

Even though the competition has already begun, you can always book an adventure at one of the Land Rover Experience Centers with your Defender, regardless of whether you drive a Trophy Edition!
