Patent Images Of Landrover Defender 130 are Finally Here
The patent images of Landrover Defender 130 are revealed and the vehicle is being prepared for a spring release, and its final design has been disclosed in a series of patents filed in the United States. The extended SUV was previously seen in Germany in black and white camouflage, with black wheels and tinted rear windows, but these new designs provide strong indications about its ultimate look ahead of its unveiling.
Land Rover Defender 130: So far what we know
The extended wheelbase 130 version will be the third body type in the new Land Rover Defender lineup, positioned as a luxury-oriented flagship to compete with the Audi Q7 and BMW X7 worldwide, as well as the Cadillac Escalade and Jeep Grand Wagoneer in the United States. Previously, the model was seen near Land Rover’s headquarters in Warwickshire, UK.
The two sightings provide a close look at the longer car’s final style as well as an indicator of its production readiness. The exact debut date for the top-of-the-line Defender has yet to be announced, but before the 2019 announcement of the Defender 90 and Defender 110, a leaked internal presentation revealed it will come in 2022 with eight seats which is one more than the Defender 90 the most recent five-door model.
The 130 will be positioned as the Defender’s premium explorer, while the 140 will be positioned as the Defender’s entry-level explorer. The entry-level 90 is the visual symbol, while the 110 is the definitive Defender. As a result, it is likely to command a significant price premium over the other Defender vehicles and will only be offered in top-tier trim levels.
Land Rover Defender 130: Dimensions and Powertrain
While the original Defender 130 had a larger wheelbase than the 110, the new car’s greater footprint is due to a substantially increased rear overhang, which brings its overall length to 5.1m – 342mm more than the 110 and 227mm longer than the competitor Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The previously seen prototype was outfitted with Land Rover’s latest mild-hybridized 3.0-liter straight-six petrol engine, which generates 360hp and has a 0-100kph speed of 6.5sec in the Discovery.
The Defender 130 will also be available with the whole range of diesel and petrol powertrains, including the P300e plug-in hybrid and the 550hp supercharged petrol V8. An open-backed pickup truck type to compete with the Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi L200 in overseas markets. Vehicle programs executive director Nick Collins stated that a Defender pick-up had no structural limits and hinted at the possibility of such a model by remembering Land Rover’s past aspirations to promote the Defender as a full family of products.
