New Models

The largest member of the Land Rover Defender family, the eight-seat 130, will open for orders this August, priced $25,000 higher than an equivalent 110 five-seater.

  • 2023 Land Rover Defender pricing and specifications
  • New 130 body brings eight seats, longer rear overhang
  • SE trim the only option, with petrol or diesel power
  • Priced from $124,150 before on-road costs

The 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 is coming to Australia, priced from $124,150 plus on-road costs.

Available only in SE specification with a choice of petrol or diesel engines, the Defender 130 costs $24,170 to $24,600 more than an equivalent Defender 110 – though for the extra spend buyers get a longer body with eight seats and more boot space (click here for full details).

Two engines will be offered by Land Rover in Australia, the D300 diesel and P400 petrol – both based around 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six-cylinder engines, with 48-volt mild-hybrid systems, eight-speed automatics and all-wheel drive.

The D300 quotes outputs of 221kW and 650Nm, while the P400 offers 294kW and 550Nm – good for 0-100km/h time of 7.5 and 6.6 seconds respectively.

A full standard feature list is yet to be confirmed, however Land Rover Australia’s press release points to an 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen, panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, adaptive air suspension, 20-inch wheels, and the Terrain Response off-road system.

Other items standard on the Defender 90 and 110 SE include ‘premium’ LED headlights, 12-way power front seats, an 11-speaker sound system, wireless phone charging, and a full advanced safety suite. There’s no guarantee these will be standard on the 130, however.

Options on the 130 SE may include a choice of five or eight seats, plus heated third-row seats and four-zone climate control.

Orders for the 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 will open in Australia on 1 August 2022. Local launch timing is yet to be confirmed, however first arrivals early next year appear probable.
