The short-wheelbase Land Rover Defender 90 is finally on its way to the U.S as a 2021 model. Die-hard Landie fans or those on a tighter budget will welcome the addition of this more compact and, some might say, more pure version.
Prices start at $46,100 for the base Defender 90 with its P300 2.0-liter, turbocharged, 296-hp four-cylinder, rising to over $80,000 for the 395-hp 3.0-liter, six-cylinder P400 Defender 90 X.
Long-wheelbase 110 models command a premium of $3000–$4500 and see a new trim level added for 2021. X-Dynamic editions gain gloss black wheels, gloss black wheel arch cladding, and skid plates for a slightly sportier look.
It goes without saying that whichever Defender takes your fancy you’re buying into one of the most capable all-terrain vehicles ever made, as proven on Hagerty’s recent exploits in Namibia and the SUV’s big-screen performance in the upcoming James Bond movie No Time To Die.
