It’s been 75 years since the iconic Land Rover Defender made its debut at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show, and in celebration of this remarkable milestone, Land Rover has unveiled the special Land Rover Defender 75th Anniversary Edition.

A Touch of Nostalgia

This special edition is a nod to the Defender’s roots, paying homage to the original Series One model with its classic Grasmere Green color, reminiscent of the rugged outdoors.

Exterior Features

There’s also a special touch with “75 Years” laser etching on the exterior, reminding us of the Defender’s historic journey.

Interior Comfort and Technology

Inside the Defender, you’ll find a blend of modern comfort and advanced technology. The Land Rover Defender 75th Anniversary Edition boasts a front center console with a refrigerator compartment, perfect for keeping your drinks chilled during your adventures.

  • An 11.4-inch center console provides access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ensuring you’re connected and entertained wherever your journey takes you.

  • The icing on the cake is the impressive 1700-watt Meridian sound system, delivering a premium audio experience.

Performance and Capability

Under the hood, the Land Rover Defender 75th Anniversary Edition is equipped with a powerful 3-liter engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This combination allows for a 0-60 mph acceleration in just 6.5 seconds, making it not only a rugged off-roader but a capable on-road performer as well. Of course, it’s a 4-wheel drive, ensuring that you can tackle any terrain with confidence. Additionally, this Defender can tow up to 3 tons, highlighting its impressive utility.
