Land Rover Defender 75th Limited Edition: What’s on offer?
The 75th Limited Edition Land Rover Defender comes with an exclusive exterior design theme with unique detailing, finished in iconic Grasmere Green paint with complementing wheels and interior finishes. It has been made available in 90 and 110 body designs. This is the first time we’ll be seeing the Defender in Grasmere Green colour scheme, and it will be offered exclusively on the 75th edition. The SUV also receives a ‘75 year’ graphic and Ceres Silver bumpers. Along the sides, the 20-inch alloy wheels also get the Grasmere Green colour treatment along with matching centre caps.
The exterior theme makes its way inside as well, with the Cross Car Beam finished in brushed Grasmere Green Powder Coat and laser-etched detailing on Cross Car Beam end caps. The seats are finished in Resist Ebony, with the hockey stick on the centre console featuring Robustec material – the most robust fabric available on Defender.
The new 75th limited edition Defender boasts features like 3D Surround Camera, Configurable Terrain Response, Meridian Sound System, Matrix LED front lighting, 28.95 cm (11.4) Pivi Pro infotainment system, Head-Up Display and Wireless Device Charger. On top of that, there is also an option of a Folding Fabric Roof or a Sliding Panoramic Roof. The SUV is also equipped with 14-way driver and passenger heated electric memory seats, a heated steering wheel, and three-zone climate control for superior comfort.
Powertrain options include the powerful and efficient P400e plug-in Electric Hybrid (PHEV) on 110 models, in addition to P400 and D300 Ingenium petrol and diesel options, both utilising Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology to optimise power delivery and fuel economy by harnessing energy normally lost under deceleration and braking.
Stuart Frith, Lifecycle Chief Engineer Defender, said: “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 detailing, and fuses it with innovative new technology such as Hybrid Electric power, Configurable Terrain Response, software over the air updates and unrivalled all-terrain capability.”
