After a hiatus that felt like a century, the Land Rover Defender is finally back for the 2020 model year. The new Land Rover is a compilation of over 70 years of innovative design and offers immense capability and durability along with a rugged design and a slew of high-tech features. With some assistance from Warren Henry Auto Group (Miami), here is our report:
The 2020 Land Rover Defender is available with a wide range of optional packages and stand-alone features so you can completely customize your Defender to your lifestyle. Three different roof options are available for the Defender which includes an optional Fuji White or Narvik Black contrast roof. A sliding panoramic roof opens to allow plenty of light into the interior of the Defender and further connects you to the outdoors. While the Folding Fabric Roof which comes standard on the Defender 90 First Edition opens up to give you a taste of open-air freedom.
