Following the regional reveal last August in Asia, the Land Rover Defender D240 will start rolling on Philippine (on- and off-) roads starting first quarter of next year.

This vehicle, which will come in two body types (90 and 110) are both powered by a D240 twin turbocharged diesel engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

To make the ride more refined, the Land Rover Defender is fitted with independent front and rear suspensions with adaptive dynamics and has all-terrain capabilities as well as the all-wheel drive system, which the Land Rover is known for.

However, unlike the previous generation, the New Defender has a lightweight aluminium monocoque construction.

Both Defender body frames, are available in four designs: Urban, Country, Adventure, and Explorer.

Coventry Motors Corporation President Chris Ward expressed excitement over the news.

“We are thrilled to share this much awaited development. The Defender was well received in the Philippine market. With the growing following and demand for this truly exceptional vehicle, introducing a new powertrain and an additional body option comes as a natural progression in line with the brand’s intention to satisfy every driver’s desire to own and drive the most capable Land Rover yet.”
