It’s also a favorite vehicle of the British royal family, with the queen seen driving one around her Scottish estate well into her ’90s. Now, with the 2023 Land Rover Defender 130, the brand takes the Defender to new heights.

So, how exactly does the Defender 130 compare to the standard Defender model?

While the standard Land Rover Defender is already a remarkable vehicle, the 2023 Defender 130 bumps everything up a notch or two.

With its extended wheelbase, three-row seating offering eight adults a comfortable ride, enhanced towing capacity, and expanded cargo space, the Defender 130 is designed to meet the needs of those who require additional room and versatility.

Whether you have a large family, frequently travel with a group of friends, or simply need more space for your gear, the Defender 130 ensures that no adventure is too big or too challenging for its capabilities on and off the road. And, best of all, you can fold the second and third rows to create an additional 44 cubic feet and 89 cubic feet of cargo space, respectively.

Whether you need to accommodate more passengers or carry additional gear for your next expedition, the Defender 130’s extended wheelbase ensures you have the room you need to conquer any adventure.

Three-Row Seating.

And the drive, of course, is perfect. Adapting to road quality and adjusting grip, the Defender 130’s Suspension and Adaptive Dynamics are constantly at work for a smooth and engaging drive. And all that power is at your fingertips in the form of two 3.0-liter six-cylinder engines: the 296-hp P300 and the 395-hp P400.

As Car & Driver put it: “The turbo-boosted inline-six also features an electrically driven supercharger, which effectively combats turbo lag. There’s also a 48-volt motor-generator (and) the long-travel accelerator seems designed for careful modulation in delicate off-pavement situations. The boosted six proves smooth and muscular (allowing) the 130 the ability to charge to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds.”
