2020 Land Rover Defender Design Elements

When it comes time for a new model to roll onto our lot, West Palm Beach drivers often ask what it’s going to look like. Luckily, we have some early details we’re able to share! This upcoming Defender is expected to have an independent suspension and may offer a two-door version in addition to the four-door style. Many suspect it will balance the style of the original Defender with the modern Land Rover design you know and love.

Original Defender Design

The first Defender – the Land Rover One Ten – was released in 1983 and had a sleek 80s angular design and round headlights. Similarities between the original and new Defender could include:

  • Boxy design and thick roof
  • Sharp corners and 90-degree angles
  • Flat hood and sides
  • Short front and rear overhang for stronger off-roading and handling steep angles with ease
  • Split rear hatch where the top swings up and the bottom opens to the side

Modern Defender Design

With the 2020 Defender in particular, there’s quite a bit of speculation of a split-hatch designed to accommodate a spare tire, as well as these potential updated design elements:

  • Curved windshield and curved front grille and bumper
  • Less pronounced A-pillar separation
  • Grille design and rectangular headlights similar to current 2020 Range Rover
  • Side panels transition with seamless curving into the fender flares

How Much Will the 2020 Land Rover Defender Cost?

According to Land Rover USA, it looks like the 2020 Defender will be available in two affordably-priced configurations:

  • Defender 110: $49,900 MSRP
  • Defender 110 S: $53,350 MSRP

When Will the 2020 Defender Be Available in West Palm Beach?

Despite recent world events, which have obviously impacted auto manufacturing plants around the world, it looks as if the 2020 Land Rover Defender release date is still slated for late spring or early summer. In other words, be on the lookout for this thrilling new model to be arriving at Land Rover Palm Beach in the near future!
