In the time before “sport utility” was a vehicle category, there were vehicles like the Land Rover. We in America had the Willy’s Jeep, the British had the Land Rover. The Rover eventually morphed into various models of the same bent, some being larger, some being pickup trucks, and so forth. The Defender sprouted from that in the 1980s.
The 2023 Land Rover Defender 90, 110 and 130 are models which came from that 1980s series of storied off-road machines. The 2023 model is far more luxurious and refined, of course, but retains most of that capability in its DNA.
