Jaguar’s new 2020 Land Rover Defender represents 70 years of innovation and ingenuity. It honours the history of the vehicle with its alluring appeal, innovative design, completely new interior, and the latest driver assistance and connectivity features. Its fascinating history is only complemented by this new vehicle’s design excellence and engineering integrity.

Featuring new, stronger materials and a unique construction, the Defender is built to last. It has travelled nearly 1.2 million kilometres and has undergone more than 45,000 individual tests to make sure it’s the strongest Land Rover vehicle you’ll ever see on the road.

With all-wheel drive, the Defender adapts to extreme terrain and confidently takes you from the urban jungle to icy environments. Vehicle capabilities are enhanced with exceptional geometry and the configurable Terrain Response® system. With exceptional angles of approach, ramp and flight, as well as reduced front and rear overhangs, the Defender›s geometry makes it extremely efficient.

The outside of the Defender is incomparable. Its distinctive silhouette instantly shows the character of the vehicle. The interior is designed to allow for the customization of the cabin according to your needs. A look at this recognizable figure and you know it’s anything but ordinary. Short front and rear overhangs improve geometry and capabilities. The Defender’s round headlights are instantly recognizable, characterized and perfectly proportioned.

The configuration of the passenger compartment of the Defender offers maximum versatility. It allows passengers to move between the front row and the second row and includes additional storage space, as well. The addition of an optional front service seat can accommodate an additional passenger in the front row. You can fold it when you are not using it and it can serve as an armrest instead.

The Defender’s seating configuration options include a centre console with a refrigerator compartment that keeps drinks cold on all trips. The vehicle offers options of five, six, or seven seats.

The most advanced technologies to date offer you convenience, connectivity, visibility and equipment geared for 21st century adventures. Inspired by your smartphone, the new Pro Infotainment System (PIVI) gives you complete connectivity and important information at a glance. The Defender Navigation Pro connected navigation system learns your favourite routes and suggests other faster routes in case of slow traffic.

Four different groups are offered for this classic all-terrain vehicle. The Explorer group prepares the Defender to challenge conventions and conquer even the most difficult terrains. The Adventure group equips the Defender to take you off the beaten path and into nature’s playground. The Campaign group equips your Defender to face the elements and make every journey memorable. The Urban group allows the Defender to distinguish itself in the suburbs with its eye-catching style and sophistication.

Excellence is offered in all shapes, sizes and chassis types. You will be able to see the Defender in person at this year’s auto show and will be available at Jaguar Land Rover Laval in the New Year. To put your name on the waiting list for a test drive, call 450-688-1880.
