Three different engines are available, all of which include four-wheel drive as standard: a turbo 4, a supercharger 6, and a supercharged V-8.
The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models' 518-hp Supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 will power the Defender lineup for 2022.
The both two-door 90 and the four-door 110 versions will support the V-8; a rising Carpathian Edition variant will also feature the V-8.
A new XS option, which is available on 110 models, has heated and cooled front seats among a number of other luxury and convenience features.
However, there will only be 220 available, and each one comes with a free entrance to the fall 2021 Land Rover off-road championship in North Carolina.
A baseline turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed automated transmission powers the 2022 Defender.
A 3.0-liter inline-six powered by an electric turbocharger and 48-volt hybrid model is also an option for the Defender.
The Defender is built with a unibody rather than a body-on-frame system and swaps out the old solid axles for a completely independent suspension.
The Defender can cross 35 inches of water and has 11.5 feet of ground clearance.Regardless of the engine in a Defender, all of the models have similar EPA fuel economy ratings.
The four-cylinder 90 variant is rated at 18 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
The 90's city rating falls to 17 mpg when you upgrade to the six-cylinder engine, but the highway figure rises to 22 mpg.
The interior of the Defender straddles the line between luxurious and practical, with just enough styling cues from of the other of the Land Rover series to make fans of the brand feel at home.
The door panels' exposed rivets give them a particularly tough appearance, and the magnesium beam that spans the entire length of the dashboard serves structural as well as cosmetic purposes.
