JAGUAR Land Rover (JLR) Australia has quietly announced pricing for its new-generation Defender 110, with the five-door version of its reborn off-roader to reach showrooms in June next year priced from $69,990 plus on-road costs.
Three engines will be available, with a 147kW/430Nm 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel, dubbed D200, exclusively serving in the unnamed entry-level variant.
The D240 is the same engine but retuned to 177kW/430Nm. It too is offered in the ‘regular’ specification ($75,900) as well as in the S ($83,800), SE ($91,300) and First Edition ($102,500) grades, with the latter typically only available to order in the first 12 months of production.
A punchier 294kW/550Nm 3.0-litre turbo-petrol inline six-cylinder engine with 48V mild hybridisation, called P400, is also on offer, with it available in the S ($95,700), SE ($103,100), HSE ($112,900) and X ($137,100) grades.
As standard, all variants are mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission and feature a permanent four-wheel-drive system with low-range reduction and a centre locking differential.
The Defender 110 is available with five-, six- and seven-seat configurations, with the former sprinting from standstill to 100km/h in 10.3 seconds in D200 guise, while D240 versions are 1.2s quicker to triple digits.
Performance enthusiasts will turn to the P400 variants that complete the landmark dash in as little as 6.1s while on the way to their top speed of 208km/h. Terminal velocities for the D200 and D240 versions are 175km/h and 188km/h respectively.
Standard equipment in regular Defender 110s includes Terrain Response, air suspension with adaptive dampers, 18-inch steel wheels with a full-size spare, dusk-sensing LED headlights, LED tail-lights, rear foglights, rain-sensing wipers, puddle lights and power-folding side mirrors with heating.
Inside, a 10.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, DAB+ digital radio, a 180W sound system with six speakers, a 7.0-inch multi-function display, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, fabric upholstery and rubber floormats feature.
Advanced driver-assist systems extend to autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keep assist, cruise control, traffic-sign recognition, an adaptive speed limiter, driver attention alert, surround-view cameras, front and rear parking sensors, hill-descent control, hill-start assist and tyre pressure monitoring.
The S grade picks up 19-inch alloy wheels, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, a centre console with an armrest, grained-leather upholstery, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear selector and high-beam assist.
Stepping up to the SE grade further adds 20-inch alloy wheels, premium LED headlights with daytime running lights, front foglights, a video-based rearview mirror, a 400W Meridian sound system with 10 speakers, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and Clear Exit Monitor.
The P400 HSE variant also gains Matrix LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, 14-way power-adjustable front seats with heating and cooling, Windsor leather upholstery, rear AEB and adaptive cruise control.
The D240 First Edition goes further than the SE grade with Terrain Response 2, Matrix LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, a contrasting black roof, rear privacy glass, Narvik Black exterior trim, ‘First Edition’ badging, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel with a power-adjustable column, carpet floormats and branded scuff plates.
Firmly establishing itself beyond the P400 HSE, the P400 X exclusively includes an electronic active differential with torque vectoring by braking, All Terrain Progress Control, a gloss-black bonnet, darkened tail-lights, orange brake callipers, ‘X’ badging, metal pedals, a head-up display, heated rear seats, ambient interior lighting and extended Windsor leather upholstery.
Several paintwork options are available for the Defender 110 alongside numerous option packages, including the headlining Explorer Pack, Adventure Pack, Country Pack and Urban Pack. Naturally, individual options are also offered on a variant-by-variant basis.
As reported, the Defender 90 will arrive late next year, offering buyers a three-door version of the iconic off-roader that should kick off at about $50,000.
