While most of the SUV’s profile has remained hidden in the image, the extra length of the roof and rear side window is clearly visible.

The Land Rover Defender 130 engine lineup is likely to be shared with the rest of the Defender lineup, including the more powerful Defender V8 with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 and 518bhp. and a torque of 846 Nm.
In a separate development earlier this month, Land Rover announced a limited series of Defender SUVs dedicated to the 30th Anniversary Edition to pay tribute to the cult heritage of the 1993 Land Rover Defender 110. Only 500 units of this edition will be produced and will be available from selected Land Rover dealers in North America. The anniversary model meets the style and specifications of the original along with the latest advanced technologies.
