2023 Land Rover Defender 130, All you want to know & watch about a Great Car
2023 Land Rover Defender 130: The Longer Big Defender Is Back, Seats 8
Same wheelbase, longer body, and now with even more seats.
Land Rover looks set to take on three-row rivals such as the BMW X7, Volvo XC90, and Audi Q7 with this all-new Defender 130. It also faces some competition in-house, with the Land Rover Discovery and the new long-wheelbase Range Rover also available with three-row seating. Land Rover says the new 130 will get a 2-3-3 seating arrangement with a “practical” new bodystyle joining the existing fleet of two-door 90 and four-door 110 Defender models.
You can get a clear idea of what the 130 will look like from the patent renderings previously mentioned and featured above. The current Defender consistently ranks among our favorite off-road SUVs, even against the new Ford Bronco and classic Jeep Wrangler, and was our 2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year. Adding more practicality and seating capacity, paired with what we expect to be the available full suite of off-road tech carried over from the 90 and 110, only adds more value.
Land Rover confirmed order books will open the same day the new Defender 130 breaks cover on May 31, which means we should be able to expect to get pricing details, as well.
