Whitley UK, 19th February 2014
This year’s Geneva Motor Show sees the launch of two new distinctive option packs – the ‘Black Pack’ and ‘Silver Pack’ – for Land Rover Defender. All Defender derivatives will also benefit from a suite of optional features including a new aluminium finish to the vehicle’s side runners, contrast finish leather seats, privacy glass and, for the first time, an ebony Alston headliner which brings a touch of luxury and prestige to this rugged legend.

Two new option packs

Black Pack – This pack features a Santorini black finish, which is applied to the roof, grille, grille surround, headlamp surrounds, wheel arches, ‘Defender’ bonnet script and interior facia. Privacy glass and an ebony Alston headliner lend the vehicle added visual drama. The black pack will be available with two wheel variations – a gloss black Sawtooth alloy wheel and a new gloss black heavy duty steel wheel.

Silver Pack – The silver pack adds a bright Indus silver finish to the contrast roof, which is complemented with the same finish to the grille surround, headlamp surrounds and facia. The vehicle also features the Dual Finish alloy wheels as standard and a bright light pack incorporating white tail and indicator lights.

Additional features
Defender derivatives are now available with the option of privacy glass. The option – standard on the black pack – adds darkened glass to second row windows on the Station Wagon, as well as to the alpine light and rear quarter light windows. Due to visibility regulations the rear door retains its standard glass.

The new ebony Alston headliner has a dramatic effect on the interior of the Defender, and complements the feel and style of the black pack option perfectly. More traditionally seen on the Range Rover, this headliner brings an element of elegance to this off-road icon.

To improve the flexibility of these extensive personalisation options for Defender, a new finish will be available on the vehicle’s optional side runner. Painted silver, in contrast to the black side runner available on existing Defender vehicles, it is the perfect partner for customers opting to take the silver pack.

Defender is now available with contrast leather premium seats, which feature Windsor leather inserts, and a choice of three colourways; Ebony/Pimento, Ebony/Tan or Ebony/Lunar. If specified, this theme is also continued through to the second and third row seats. To complete the look, the front centre stowage compartment features contrast leather highlights.

A new body colour, Yulong White, will be available across the Defender range from August 2015.

Dynamic Stability Control
From 2015 Model Year the 90 station wagon and 110 Station wagon will be fitted with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) as standard. This will be packaged with ABS and therefore means that these Defender models will have ABS with Electronic Traction Control (ETC) and DSC as standard. ABS will also be available for the first time on 130 wheel base Defender models.
