5 reasons to buy the 2022 Land Rover Defender

1. It's ready to off-road

Whether you're an off-grid camper, a rancher who needs to reach all your land or just a weekend warrior who likes to get off the beaten path, the 2022 Land Rover Defender can take you there. All 2022 Defenders come standard with all-wheel drive and have up to 11 inches of ground clearance with the available air suspension. When you take into account its ability to drive through nearly three feet of water, the Land Rover is virtually unstoppable. Additional features like automatic terrain management system, and an electronic active differential can enhance your off-road experience even more.

2. It's luxurious too

Are you the type who likes to exchange your work boots for a suit and tie before heading to dinner? If so you'll appreciate the 2022 Land Rover Defender's upscale and luxurious feel, in addition to being a beast when you head off the beaten path. Optional features like leather seats, ventilated seats, wooden finishes, and a heated steering wheel will have you feeling opulent.

3. Room for the whole crew

What fun are adventures without family and friends? With seating for up to seven people, the 2022 Land Rover Defender can accommodate them all. To get the most passenger space, opt for a four-door Defender that has the optional two-seat third row. Or, you can choose the six-passenger Defender, which has an available jump seat in the front middle. When it's not in use, the jump seat folds into a center console. Prefer to travel solo? A two-door defender seats five but sends the message that you'll be picky about your guest list.

4. Strong engine options

If you love hearing the road of an engine, you'll appreciate that the 2022 Land Rover Defender comes with an optional 518-hp supercharged 5.0L V8 that's new for this model year. With that engine, the Defender can accelerate from zero to 60 in about 4.9 seconds. It's available on two-door 90 and four-door 110 models and in the Carpathian Edition. If you don't need to move quite that fast, the Defender's base engine, a 296-hp turbocharged 2L four-cylinder, is plenty strong. Or, opt for the available 395-hp turbocharged 3L six-cylinder.

5. Top-notch towing

If you want to bring your boat or camper on your next outing, you'll appreciate the 2022 Land Rover Defender's stellar towing capacity. With the standard 296-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the 2022 Defender can tow up to an estimated 7,716 pounds when properly equipped.

For maximum pull, choose the Defender 90 First Edition, which comes standard with the 3L six-cylinder engine that can tow up to an estimated 8,201 pounds when properly equipped.
