The firstmodels are actually starting to trickle out to US clients, which means they ought to start learning to be a more common sight on roads. That’s awesome, and based on an announcement on Tuesday, some updates for the 2021 model year happen to be in store.
While the changes aren’t extensive, there are a couple that are worth talking about — namely, the availability of the hotly anticipated, two-door Defender 90. That’s particularly good because Land Rover will require the 90 if it plans on taking almost any bite out of.
Land Rover is also launching a new trim level which will sit between your standard Defender and the optioned-to-the-gills Defender X. It will undoubtedly be called X-Dynamic and should be plenty tough-looking — which we are all about. The X-Dynamic may be had with several different specification packs aswell, to help clients dial things in just how they want. Also new for 2021 is a Wade program (itself a Land Rover first) and a new configurable off-road mode which will allow users to set their preferred degree of assistance predicated on their personal off-roading experience.
The 2021 Defender begins at a still-surprisingly reasonable $47,125 including destination, and can be obtained to order right now. Weirdly, the Land Rover configurator remains only showing the First Edition Defender 90 as of Tuesday, but it’ll hopefully be updated soon.
