Sneak Peek At What The 2022 Land Rover Defender Has On Offer
It’s never easy to initiate change, and that’s especially true if a change can have a substantial impact. From the perspective of a long-running business, the slightest of change can either result in a significant increase or a drastic drop in customer loyalty and brand value. And that’s why leading corporate houses are often hesitant in making changes to their successful products.
But it seems that Land Rover is quite gutsy in this respect. The automaker has taken the bold step of modifying its already successful Defender model to launch an upgraded version. Only time will tell whether the upgrade will be a hit among the audience, but the company is quite hopeful and positive for now.
Join us as we check out what the new version promises to offer.
What’s unique about Land Rover V8 models?
According to reports, Land Rover has upgraded the 2022 Defender lineup by adding a V8 engine to its two-door Defender 90 and four-door Defender 110. Launching in summer, the two-door Defender will start at $98,550, while the four-door Defender will begin at $101,750.
And you’ll be surprised to know that the upgraded models’ price is double their starting prices! In fact, they even top the price of the 470-hp Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. They are about $30K cheaper than the Mercedes-Benz G550, though.
