Waddling in the mud might not be the best way to sell a brand new car, unless you’re selling the Land Rover Defender. The oldest of all the model offered by Land Rover, the Defender for model year 2013 includes several new options. One of the most obvious addition is new exterior paint color option, make that two in Barolo Black or Havana. Four new roof colors will be available as well, giving potential owners to customize more roof/body color variations. While it is still an expedition grade vehicle with virtually no frills, Land Rover offers newly designed leather seats and audio system with Bluetooth connectivity plus Alpine speakers/subwoofer. At its heart is a 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine, the same tried-and-true powerplant of the current Land Rover Defender. Rated a respectable (for a utility vehicle) 14.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mph.
Rumored to be the last Defender before the company introduces the DC100 concept, the 2013 Land Rover Defender comes in three variations (or length) of 90, 110, and 130. All to go on sale starting this month with prices starting from UK£ 22,350 or US$ 35,500.
