Review of the 1997 Land Rover Defender

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Brute force off-road, rugged design

  • Cons

    About as comfortable as acupuncture and luxurious as a Geo Metro

  • What's New for 1997

    After a one-year hiatus, Defender returns in convertible and hardtop body styles. A 4.0-liter V8 engine is standard, mated to a ZF four-speed automatic transmission. A redesigned center console includes cupholders, and hardtops have new interior trim. Convertibles get improved top sealing, while all Defender 90s are treated to fresh paint colors.

This is a real SUV. Not a jacked up minivan.

I have owned this vehicle for the last four years. I primarily use it off road in Colorado. I do not beleive you could find a better all around off road machine.
