Chișinău / Moldova.ORG/ -- In anticipation of the expected premiere of the next-generation Land Rover Defender in Frankfurt, the British company announces the appearance of the famous off-road new engine. In addition, the options package has been updated.
The 122-hp 2.5-liter turbo-diesel engine, that develops 300 Nm of torque, was superseded by a more compact and high-torque motor.
The new 2.2 liters volume diesel engine not only develops more Nm of torque (360), but has a reduced level of harmful emissions - Euro5 versus its predecessor’s Euro4.
The emissions amount is 266 g / km for the mid-size version of the Defender and 295 g / km for Defender 110.
It is also worth noting that due to the change of the power plant, the SUV’s top speed increased a bit. It increased to 13 km / h compared to the version of the current turbo.
Land Rover has reported that two new option packages for Defender will be available next year.
That is Comfort Pack, which includes air conditioning, audio system, power windows and central locking, as well as the Off-Road Pack. It includes ABS, special wheels and off-road MTR tires, bottom protection and hitch.
The packages are priced at 1650 and 1500 pounds respectively.
The newly improved Land Rover Defender will be released on the British market in November this year.
