What is the exterior design for the Defender 130?
The first thing that you will notice with this Land Rover is the exterior. This is where an immediate first impression is made, and the designers at Land Rover are determined to make sure that everyone knows this is a model worth checking out. The iconic silhouette of the Defender is extended by 13.38 inches at the rear, which provides more interior space, though does not compromise the all-terrain capabilities that everyone knows the Defender for. There’s an all-new exterior color option, too, called Sedona Red, which is exclusive to just this specific model. To help maintain the rear, even with the added inches, the engineers have included a subtle boat tail-style uplift, that helps to maximize the capability. You can even choose from packs like Explorer, Country, Adventure, and Urban, for more customization depending on your personality and needs.
What engine powers the 2023 Defender 130?
Anytime we are talking about a Land Rover, we know that we have to have a discussion about the kind of power that it offers. That’s because every Land Rover model is sure to provide you with the kind of boost you’ve been looking for in a machine. The Defender 130 comes with a few different electrified powertrains, including a P300 gas Ingenium and a P400 mild-hybrid gas Ingeium six-cylinder engine. The base engine, the P300, can get you 196 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. The P400 provides you with 406 pound-feet of torque and 395 horsepower. These mild-hybrid engines work with technology that provides seamless responses, and used a 48-volt belt-integrated starter generator that harvests energy that is usually lost whenever decelerating.
What does the Defender 130 offer for capability?
The last aspect of the 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 that we want to discuss today is the capability of this vehicle. Every single one of these models comes with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This works by optimizing on-the-road efficiency, along with all-terrain capability. You will also find things like an electronic air suspension, adaptive dynamics, a Terrain Response system, and torsional rigidity of 25kNm/degree. We also want to mention that you can tow up to 8,200 pounds while hitching, and it’s made all the easier with that electronic air suspension.
