2022 Land Rover Defender Review

  • Strong off-road capabilities
  • Wealth of customization options
  • High-tech safety and off-road features
  • Smooth ride for an off-road-oriented SUV
  • Options can get pricey
  • Cargo door is heavy and opens toward the curb
  • Available supercharged V8
  • New special edition packages and trim levels
  • Larger optional touchscreen
  • Part of the second Defender generation introduced for 2020

Combining classic Land Rover styling, a luxurious interior and enviable off-road performance, the new Land Rover Defender has quickly become one of our higher-ranked midsize luxury SUVs. But Land Rover isn't content to sit back and bask in its success — the automaker is introducing a host of updates for the 2022 Defender.

Headlining the changes for the 2022 Land Rover Defender is the addition of a supercharged V8. Available in both two-door (Defender 90) and four-door (Defender 110) body styles, the eight-cylinder produces an impressive 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque. It should endow the Defender with muscular acceleration and make it a worthy rival to V8-powered German SUVs or even the new V8-powered Jeep Wrangler.

A handful of new trim levels also offer Defender buyers a deeper level of customization. The XS Edition effectively replaces the 2020 model's First Edition trim, which ticked nearly every option box and added a few details not found on any other model. There's also the new range-topping Carpathian Edition that starts with the V8 engine and includes a custom-look gray paint scheme as well as a limited-edition Trophy Edition inspired by another limited edition of the classic Defender SUV (the Works V8 Trophy).

Overall, we think the Defender is a solid pick for a midsize luxury SUV, and especially so if you want one with genuine off-road capability and lots of ways to customize it. Check out our Expert Rating below to get our team's full analysis of its performance, comfort and more.

Rated for you by America’s best test team
The Land Rover Defender packs legitimate off-road capability — provided you pick the right options — and makes no sacrifice in on-road comfort. It's an admirable accomplishment. Overall, we're impressed with this modern interpretation of a classic nameplate.
Strong off-road capability typically comes at the expense of on-road handling and steering precision. But that isn't the case here. The Defender 110 drives just like a luxury SUV should, and its transmission provides smooth and often imperceptible gear changes. The brakes are easy to control for smooth stops around town.

As for acceleration, we clocked a 0-60 mph sprint of 6.7 seconds in our V6-equipped Defender test vehicle. That's plenty quick for an off-road-oriented SUV. Still, with 395 hp, you might expect a little more. Weight might be a culprit; our test Defender weighed a portly 5,571 pounds.
The Defender travels down the road with the refinement you'd expect of a luxury-priced Land Rover. The interior remains quiet and free from road vibrations even when the Defender's riding on the optional 20-inch wheels and all-terrain tires. In terms of ride quality, our test vehicle was on the firm side when going over bumps and road imperfections, but it was likely the result of those wheels (18-inch wheels are standard).

The driver's seat provides a wide range of adjustment. Heating and ventilation are optional. The climate system is able to maintain a comfortable temperature, though you might need to fiddle with the vents to get the airflow you want.
The four-door Defender's massive second row and tall roof give the cabin a very roomy feel. Headroom, legroom and shoulder room are plentiful, though the steering column can get in the way of some drivers' knees when they get in. The height-adjusting air suspension, numerous grab handles and large doors make access easy.

A few interior controls have steep learning curves. The climate control dials, for example, double as drive mode selectors and seat heating/ventilation adjustment. Large windows and appropriately sized mirrors make outward visibility a non-issue. On the downside, the leather, fabric and other materials in our test SUV showed early signs of wear, including stains and scuffs.
The wide entertainment touchscreen and available digital gauge cluster are attractive and generally respond quickly to inputs. The native voice command system was a bit hit-or-miss in our tests. We had no difficulty changing stereo stations using natural language, but it couldn't decipher basic navigation requests. Fortunately you can use your phone's voice controls on Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, which are standard. Numerous connectivity options include wireless charging and multiple USB ports.

As for driving aids, the surround-view camera system helps both in parking lots and going off-road, and it provides a comprehensive view of whatever obstacle you're approaching. Adaptive cruise control is pleasant as well and makes appropriate speed corrections smoothly.
The four-door Defender has a generous amount of storage space, both with the rear seats up or lowered for maximum capacity. The rear seats are heavy, and it can take some oomph to push them back in place.

With the air suspension, you can also lower the Defender's ride height from the cargo area, which makes loading easier. Unlike like most SUVs, the Defender has a swing-out tailgate instead of a liftgate. It swings out toward the curb, which not everyone will like because it can impede access. It's also heavy because of the mounted spare tire.

Inside, the Defender has long shelves for the front seats and multilevel storage by the center console. There are numerous places to store small items, but none large enough to hold a medium handbag. The sheer size of the second row makes car seat installation easy, as does the obvious location of the attachment points. An available tow package allows the Defender to tow 8,200 pounds. But it doesn't include a trailer brake controller, which you'll want to help control and adjust a heavy trailer's brakes.
The Defender 110 equipped with the 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg combined (17 city/22 highway). That's higher than most off-road-oriented SUVs such as the Toyota Land Cruiser and 4Runner, as well as the pricier Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The Jeep Wrangler advertises higher figures with most of its engines.
The Defender has a comfortable entry price at around $50,000. When optioned sensibly, it marries off-road capability and on-road refinement in a way that justifies paying the premium for it over, say, the Jeep Wrangler or Toyota 4Runner. Even equipped with a fair number of options, it costs less than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

On the downside, our test vehicle had multiple misaligned body panels and a few interior rattles. The interior materials didn't quite seem to reflect the $72,000 as-tested price — they were already showing signs of wear, markings and stains. Our test vehicle was an early build version that was undoubtedly used hard, but hard use is what a Defender should be built to withstand.
Personality is important to the Defender, and the new one gets the important parts of the classic Defender's proportions right. It looks cool from most angles, but we still think the front end looks a bit soft, and the optional plastic bits on the hood that are styled to look like diamond-plated metal elicit plenty of chuckles. We wish it looked a bit tougher.

The Defender drives with refinement and dignity whether you're on- or off-road. While the level of electronic control is nifty, we find it more satisfying to manually engage diff locks and low range with physical buttons and levers. Still, it's hard to argue with the seamlessness of the Defender's approach.

Which Defender does Edmunds recommend?

We suggest going with the Defender X-Dynamic SE. You get the more powerful six-cylinder engine than the base Defender as well as an appealing mix of features. As a midtier trim, you can also customize it with a few extra features (we'd add the larger 11.4-inch screen) without paying for the fully loaded X.

Land Rover Defender models

The 2022 Defender is available in two body styles: the two-door Land Rover Defender 90 and four-door Land Rover Defender 110. There are a variety of trim levels depending what basic model you choose. There are also one of three available engine options.

That engine lineup includes:

  • P300: turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (296 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque)

  • P525: supercharged 5.0-liter eight-cylinder engine (518 hp, 461 lb-ft)

All Defenders come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, a two-speed transfer case (with low-range gearing) and all-wheel drive.

Five-passenger seating is standard. An available jump seat that fits between the two front seats boosts capacity to six passengers. The Defender 110 can also be had with a two-person third-row seat, but it cannot be combined with the jump seat.

  • Black contrast roof and hood

  • Digital rearview mirror
  • Adjustable air suspension (can raise or lower the Defender's ride height)

  • Heated second-row seats

  • Quad exhaust pipes
  • 22-inch wheels
  • Microfiber-wrapped steering wheel
  • Activity key (shockproof and fully waterproof wristband that can lock and unlock your vehicle, reducing the need to carry a conventional key fob)

V8 Carpathian Edition
The Carpathian Edition is the absolute top-of-the-line Defender trim. It comes in a unique gray paint color and darkened exterior elements. It also comes with just about everything that's otherwise optional on the lower trim levels, including:

  • Special gray paint with satin protective film
  • Graphite-color exterior trim pieces
  • Black contrast tail door
  • 22-inch gloss black wheels

Many features on the upper trims are available on the lower trims as options. Other significant options for the Defender include:

  • Third-row seat
  • Front jump seat

A variety of accessory packs are also available and include features such as wheel arch flares, a spare tire cover, a roof rack and an underbody shield.

    2022 Land Rover Defender videos

    SPEAKER 1: If you're into off-road vehicles, it's a great time to be alive. There are a lot of great choices out there, and it looks like the new Ford Bronco has the potential to be one of the best. There's no way to tell for sure until we get to drive it, so I thought I'd take the time to have a surface level chat about the Bronco's design, style, and how it stacks up against its two most direct competitors, the Jeep Wrangler and the Land Rover Defender. As always, hit that subscribe button below, because we have a ton of great content coming your way. And head over to edmunds.com for all your car shopping needs. If you haven't seen our Ford Bronco preview video yet, you might want to go check that out right now. Go ahead, I'll wait. When it comes to style, people often reference the past. Is it nostalgia, or does it take time for timeless style to develop? Personally, I think it's a combination of both. With the revival of the new Ford Bronco and Land Rover Defender, the Jeep Wrangler has its work cut out for it. All three are iconic off-roaders with impressive specs and modern engineering. But they also celebrate their heritage with motifs and design elements that date back several decades. The common thread? Well, they're all boxy with short overhangs for better off-road capabilities. Most of them are also a lot more primitive and utilitarian than the typical family crossover SUV. Let's start with the Jeep, since in a lot of ways it was the originator of this class, as one of the first mass-produced four wheel drive vehicles. The Jeep was instrumental in helping the Allies win World War II, and went on to become a symbol of freedom and sacrifice. It's easy to see its lineage, even with an eight decade difference. They're both purpose-built and fairly simple in design. After all, the fewer intricacies and complications means quicker production, and that was critical to the war effort. The Willys MA here shows the origins of the Wrangler's distinctive grill, with these upright metal slats. They're also the flat fenders and slab-sided body that are instantly recognizable. Other Jeep staples include the fold down windshield as well as the removable doors. The MB version is the one that we recognize as the traditional military Jeep. Note the grill is now stamped steel rather than those welded slats, because it speeds up production. After the war, Willys introduced the first civilian Jeep. That's where the CJ name comes from. Over the decades, it evolved, but remains easily recognizable. There have been some tweaks here and there, with maybe a little rounded-off corner here and rounded-off fenders there, and even, yeah, rectangular headlights. Ugh. The CJ title was dropped in favor of the Wrangler name in the late 1980s. The Jeep has the kind of brand equity that you simply can't buy. And the fan base is very dedicated, as evidenced by a handful of comments in that Bronco preview video. Then there's the Land Rover Defender. The Defender's heritage can be traced back to the original Land Rover Series I, II, III. Unlike the Jeep, these were developed for agricultural and light commercial duty in postwar England. They were similarly primitive, though. In the '80s, the Defender came on the scene with the squared-off style that so many of us come to love. The two main versions, Defender 90 and the longer Defender 110 were only sold in the US for a few years, which kind of made them forbidden fruit for a lot of people. Its rarity and price gained its own cult following, and that squared-off shaped and exposed rivets had a charm all its own. The Defender underwent its only true redesign last year. In the process, it lost some of that aforementioned charm. The new Defender is more of a modern reinterpretation rather than an evolution. It's softer in its style, which may be a disappointment to Defender loyalists. But it may also gain a wider audience as a result. To use a movie industry reference, it's great to have critical acclaim, but every now and then you need a blockbuster to keep the lights on. Now the problem is, this dumpster fire that is 2020 makes it really difficult to tell whether or not the Defender is a success or failure when it comes to sales. We'll just have to wait a little longer to see what the public's reaction is to it. There are hints of the original Defender here and there, but it's simply not as bad ass as the original. Sure, it has some mean-looking headlights, and that chopped-off rear tail section. But the rounding of the corners and the fenders almost remind me of a Honda Element from certain angles, and that's not exactly a compliment. I have no doubt that it's a very capable off-roader. And if current Land Rover vehicles are an indication, all that technical wizardry should make it a lot easier to navigate difficult terrain. Part of the allure of off-roading is actually in the struggle. It's that sensation that you're an integral part of reaching the destination. I have a feeling that the Defender might actually make things too easy, if that's even possible. The interior is a good example. It has echoes of the past, but it's overpowered by the modern and luxurious setting it's in. I'm sure it's a great glamper, and it's probably better to drive on the road. But in this instance, I'm falling on the side of edginess. I know, me, Mr. Luxury! Who knew? Plus I feel kind of bad mucking up that lovely cabin. And now, onto the new hotness of the moment, new Ford Bronco. Has the Bronco split the difference between the Jeep and the Defender? No. No, no, no. From my in-person experience, it's definitely a lot closer to the Jeep Wrangler than the Defender. In some ways, it's what I wish the Defender could have been, with its strong, retro identity, with all the tech and convenience features that we get from any modern car. I can see how some might feel that Ford was a little heavy-handed with the retro styling, because I sort of feel the same way. Or at least I used to. When you think of other retro revivals, like the PT Cruiser, Chevy HHR, or that monstrosity that was the last Thunderbird, yeah, I can see that. But man, it just seems to work for me with this Bronco. What really resonates with me is that they didn't put any retro features in there that didn't really serve a purpose. Like the peaked fenders that are a retro callback, but they allow the driver to get a better indication of where the corners are when they're off-roading. On the whole, it's the details that make the Bronco special. It's as if Ford let Jeep take over market research for two decades while they took a massive shortcut that isn't on any map, and ended up at the same destination at the same time. I suppose Chevy could have followed suit. But that new Blazer has abandoned all of its heritage in favor of mass-market appeal, as questionable as that may be. In the more affluent class, the Mercedes G Wagon, well that's more of a reboot than a sequel, because honestly, I still have a hard time telling the new one from the previous one. If successful, the Ford Bronco may usher in a new era of cool off-roaders. Or at least one can hope. I would love to see a revival of the Toyota FJ, and perhaps with a hail Mary pass in the automotive industry, maybe we could someday see an International Scout come back. Come on, Navistar. It's a license to print money. Anyway, those are my thoughts on the new Ford Bronco, the Jeep Wrangler, as well as the Land Rover Defender. Let me know what you think in the comments below. And as always, head on to edmunds.com for more information on the Bronco and all of its competition. To see more videos like this, hit subscribe.

    Land Rover Defender vs. Jeep Wrangler

    The Jeep Wrangler has the iconic styling and off-road capabilities to back up its aggressive styling. Like the Defender, it's available in both two- and four-door body styles. The Wrangler has a much lower base price than the Defender but lacks the luxury feel and high-tech feature availability of the Defender.

    Land Rover Defender vs. Mercedes-Benz G-Class

    The G-Class costs roughly twice as much as the Defender, but these two actually have a number of things in common. They're both based on famous nameplates, have boxy but retro-chic styling, and boast serious off-road credentials. That said, we think the Defender is the one you'd actually want to go off-roading in. The G-Class is perhaps too posh for its own good. But if you're looking for a vehicle that makes a big statement and aren't too worried about going off-road, the G-Class is the way to go.

    Compare Land Rover Defender & Mercedes-Benz G-Class features 

    Land Rover Defender vs. Land Rover Discovery

    The Discovery doesn't have quite the level of off-road capability as the Defender. But if you're looking for more of a traditional Land Rover styling and are focused more on the comfort of your passengers, the Discovery will be a more comfortable day-to-day driver than the Defender.

    2022 Land Rover Defender First Impressions

    What is the Defender?

    Combining classic Land Rover styling, a luxurious interior and enviable off-road performance, the new Land Rover Defender has quickly become one of our higher-ranked midsize luxury SUVs. But Land Rover isn't content to sit back and bask in its success; the automaker is introducing a host of updates for the 2022 Defender.

    Headlining the changes for the 2022 Land Rover Defender is the addition of a supercharged V8. Available in both two-door (Defender 90) and four-door (Defender 110) body styles, the eight-cylinder produces an impressive 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque. Land Rover says the Defender 90 with this engine can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. For reference, the powertrain one rung down the ladder is a turbo-six with a mild hybrid system. All told, it makes 395 hp and 416 lb-ft. In Edmunds' testing, we achieved a quickest acceleration time of 6.7 seconds in a Defender 110 with this powertrain.

    The V8 also features specialized suspension tuning for sharper handling and a Dynamic driving mode to make the most of the extra power and capability. A quad exhaust system, unique 22-inch wheels, and larger brakes with blue calipers distinguish the V8 from lesser Defenders. The seats and steering wheel feature faux suede detailing to carry the sport theming to the interior.

    A handful of new trim levels offer Defender buyers a deeper level of customization. The XS Edition effectively replaces the 2020 model's First Edition trim, which ticked nearly every option box and added a few details not found on any other model. In the XS Edition's case, this means unique wheels and body-colored lower cladding and wheel arches. The new range-topping Carpathian Edition starts with the V8 engine and includes black exterior trim and a semi-matte protective film covering the Carpathian Grey paint scheme.

    Finally, the Defender will have a new 11.4-inch touchscreen with curved glass available as an option.

    EdmundsEdmunds says

    A newly available supercharged V8 and additional trim levels give buyers a greater degree of customization for the excellent 2022 Land Rover Defender.

    Should I lease or buy a 2022 Land Rover Defender?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
