A legend off the road, tough image

A roadblock on the road, outdated, noisy

Land Rover Defender 1998 Overview

The original Land Rover started in 1948, and it has continued to the new century under the Defender name with only minor upgrades. Whether that is good or bad is largely dependent on what it is used for. It is undefeatable off the road, but it is a joke on tarmac. Middle East buyers only got a slow 2.5-litre turbodiesel with only a five-speed manual gearbox, introduced in 1998. A series of upgrades over the years has seen the implementation of central locking, electric front windows, better ventilation system and an upgraded look. It is available with a choice of three wheelbase lengths and a range of body-styles in its home country, though eventually only the Defender 110 wagon model was available here by 2006. Ideal for towing, climbing mountains or driving in the wilderness, management of engine torque is provided via a robust dual-range transfer box. The long travel of its suspension allows its wheels the articulation needed to negotiate rocks, though do wonder of its effectiveness in soft sand.
