The history of the Land Rover Defender

The 'Defender' model of Land Rover was originally introduced in 1983 as the "Land Rover One Ten", and in 1984 the "Land Rover Ninety". The "Land Rover 127" (later becoming the 130) was also introduced in 1983. The numbers represented the respective wheelbases in inches. The Land Rover 90 and 110 originally replaced the Series model, and at the time of its launch, the Range Rover was the only other model in production. From 1991, the models became known as the "Land Rover Defender 90" and the "Land Rover Defender 110."

From the outside, the new Defender model is visually similar to its predecessor, the Series III. A full-length bonnet, revised grille, plus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles were the most noticeable changes. Mechanically, there were a few updates and modernisations, inculuding the addition of Coil Springs; a permanent 4 wheel drive system with 2-speed gearbox; one-piece windscreen; a more poweful engine; and a modernised interior.

Engine Development

The Defender model has had a number of engines over the years - starting with a 2.25L petrol and diesel engine derived from the Series model. The following engines have been used since the models inception:

  • 2.25L 11H petrol I4 (1983–1985)
  • 2.25L 10J diesel I4 (1983)
  • 2.5L 11J/12J diesel I4 (1984–1993)
  • 2.5L 17H petrol I4 (1985–1993)
  • 2.5L Diesel Turbo turbodiesel I4 (1986–1990)
  • 3.5L Rover V8 petrol V8 (1983–1986)
  • 3.5L Rover V8 petrol V8 (1986–1993)

End of an Era

In October 2013, Land Rover announced that the Defender model would cease production in December 2015, marking 32 years of production for Land Rover's most well known model. The last Defender, a soft-top 90 model, rolled off the Solihull production line at 9:22 on Friday 29 January 2016. Land Rover are reportedly due to release a modernised, upgraded Defender model in 2018/2019.
