Next year, the Land Rover Defender completes 75 years. And to mark the special occasion, British Marque Land Rover has revealed a special edition of the Defender dubbed the Defender 75th Limited Edition. The four-wheel drive will feature a host of new upgrades in the upcoming 2023 model year and will be available in a limited-edition green colour. However, the anniversary edition of the Defender has been positioned as a highly collectable piece, but the brand has not placed a cap on production numbers. While the exclusivity is unclear, the New Defender 75th Limited Edition starts at $91,880 for the 90, and $94,380 for the 110.
Available in either 90 or 110 body styles, the 75th Limited Edition comes in only one colour: Grasmere Green – a first-of-its-kind hue that extends to its wheels, as well as inside the vehicle including the dashboard and door panels. Other unique features include several 75 Year graphics across the body and bumpers.
The rest of the vehicle has been left untouched and the engine of the car comes with two powertrain options – the 296hp D300 diesel (90 and 110 models) and the 398hp P400e plug-in hybrid (110 only). Enhancing the car further are tech updates that include a 3D surround camera, matrix LED headlights, an 11.4-inch PiviPro infotainment system and configurable terrain response. The 75th Limited Edition model also features a Folding Fabric Roof, while superior comfort is provided by 14-way driver and passenger heated electric memory seats, a heated steering wheel with electronic adjustments and Three Zone Climate Control.
While there is no news of the Defender 75th Limited Edition coming to India, in an official press release Stuart Frith, the Defender’s chief product engineer, shared, “Since revealing the new Defender, customers around the globe have fallen in love with it and demand remains extremely strong. This new Limited Edition captures the spirit of the past 75 years, with its colour and detail, and fuses it with innovative new technology.”
