Updated 2021 Land Rover Defender: 90 Debuts And Diesels Get More Cylinders

  • Short wheelbase Defender 90 now available in Australia.
  • Four-cylinder diesel engines dropped from the range.
  • Six-cylinder diesel engines added to the range.
  • MHEV technology standard across the new diesel engine range.

Land Rover Australia has announced the addition of the short wheelbase 90 to its Defender range and the replacement of the MY20 Defender’s four-cylinder turbo-diesels with six-cylinder turbo-diesels.

The three-door Defender 90 will be priced from $71,500 plus on-road costs and will soon join the 110 variant in Australian Land Rover showrooms as COVID 19 production delays are overcome. The MY21 Defender 110 range entry-level pricing is up from $69,626 to $74,500 plus on roads.


There are now five powertrains to choose from when buying your new Defender, with the six-cylinder diesel range now including the D200 (147kW/500Nm), D250 (183kW/570Nm) and range-topping D300 (220kW/650Nm), and the petrol range including the four-cylinder P300 (221kW) or six-cylinder P400 (294kW). MHEV or Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology is now standard with the diesel variants and the top-spec P400 petrol variant. All five engine options are bolted up to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

All diesel-powered Defenders now feature Land Rover’s new ‘Intelligent All-Wheel Drive’ system, while the petrol-powered cars make do with the more traditional permanent all-wheel drive arrangement.


On the safety front, the MY21 Defender range now includes the addition of emergency braking, driver condition monitoring, traffic sign recognition, lane keep assist, an adaptive speed limiter and a 360-degree camera.

An optional $7,500 X-Dynamic Pack is now available on S, SE and HSE trim spec Defenders.
