In this guide to the 2021 Land Rover Defender towing capacity, the team at Land Rover Solon will tell you all about it. Will you soon be behind the wheel of the Defender towing in the Solon, Cleveland, and Hudson, Ohio, areas? Let's get started and find out.

2021 Land Rover Defender 90 Towing Capacity

The 2021 Defender comes in two styles, the first being the 90. It packs quite the punch on the road thanks to its engine lineup, starting with the 2.0L P300. This engine revs up 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque at the base level.

You can also opt for the 3.0L P400 gas engine that's available for the Defender 90. This engine gives you more oomph behind the wheel with 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.

What's the result of such powerful engines? The capability to tow up to 7,716 pounds! You can also tow with an unbraked trailer up to 1,653 pounds!

Cargo Capacity

Along with the towing capability of the Land Rover Defender 90, you'll also have plenty of room to store belongings inside. You'll not only have seating for up to five passengers in two rows of seats, but you'll have an expansive cargo area at your disposal as well.

When the seats are upright, you'll have a generous 15.6 cubic feet, perfect for luggage, shopping bags, and more. When you need to transport larger items, simply fold down the seats. Doing so gives you 58.3 cubic feet to fill!

Roof Carrying

That's not all the Defender 90 can carry, either. With the added roof rails, you can carry up to 260 pounds (including the weight of the crossbars) on top of your SUV. This is ideal for outdoor adventure equipment and small amounts of extra luggage.

For more room and extra power, the large and in charge Land Rover Defender 110 has your back. With this style's available 3.0L P400 engine, you can really take towing to the next level.

With this engine, much like in the 90 style, you'll have 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque of strength at your fingertips. This gives you a max towing capability up to 8,201 pounds! Plus, it also provides an unbraked trailer tow rating of 1,653 pounds.

Cargo Capacity

Since the Defender 110 is a bit larger than the 90, you can also expect to have more room inside. In fact, this SUV can seat up to seven people in three rows of seating with a cargo capacity of 10.7 cubic feet behind the third row.

When you fold down the extra seats in the back, you'll open up the cargo area even more, giving you 34 cubic feet to utilize. For the most space possible, fold down all the rear rows to gain up to a whopping 78.8 cubic feet!

Roof Carrying

The 2021 Land Rover Defender 110 also comes with available roof rails. Due to its larger stature and stronger performance, you'll be able to pack up to 370 pounds (including the weight of the crossbars) on top of the model. Imagine what you can do with that extra space!
