The Defender is a household name when it comes to off-road capability. Land Rover decided to reimagine the Defender's design to keep it in touch with the modern age. The brand's reputation for designing appealing models is evident in the 2022 Defender, which will appeal to buyers looking for a stand-out off-road SUV.

What’s new for 2022?

Land Rover hopes to keep the Defender up-to-date with trends in the automotive industry and increase its competitiveness. After a successful previous model year, the brand offers a new supercharged V8 engine to increase the Defender's potency on and off the road. The Defender will have an 11.4-inch infotainment display on the interior to keep you more entertained as you drive to Nashville. In addition to the three new paint options, the Defender also has a new V-8 Carpathian Edition and a Defender XS Edition.

Performance Features

The 2022 Defender will offer three powertrain options with diverse power ratings to suit buyer demands. The base engine will be the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine developing 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It will clock 60 mph in 7.7 seconds and return a decent fuel economy in mixed driving conditions. For more power, choose the 3.0-liter turbocharged and electrically supercharged inline-six engine. It generates 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque and hits 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. New for 2022, the 5.0-liter V8 supercharged will clock 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and produce 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque.

Fuel Economy

Despite its dominance on the off-road, the Defender outperforms most of its rivals in fuel economy matters. The base 2.0-liter engine will return 18 mpg on city driving and 21 mpg on highway drives. For the 3.0-liter inline-six engine, expect 17 mpg on city driving and an estimated 22 mpg on the highway. The V8 posts a lower economy rating, ranging from 14 mpg on city drives to 19 mpg on the highway.
