Introducing the V8-powered, luxurious off-road vehicle, the Land Rover Defender 130 Outbound.

Land Rover launched the Defender 130 Outbound, a luxury off-road vehicle equipped with a powerful V8 engine and the unique off-road capabilities of the Defender.


Land Rover Defender is one of the most famous and recognizable names in the off-road vehicle segment. The classic ladder frame chassis, no-nonsense boxy body and 4×4 mechanical drive system make the Defender one of the go-to solutions for exploring the unknown with confidence and excitement.

After a long production period from the 1980s to the mid-2010s, Defender took a 4-year break before reappearing in its second generation. The new race from 2020 has surpassed Land Rover’s expectations of its success and capabilities. They have continued to research and update it to maintain a strong flow. The latest fruit of this effort is the new Defender 130 Outbound.

The folks at Jaguar Land Rover brought us the Defender 130 for 2022, a longer sibling to the Defender 90 and 110. The Defender 130 has a full three rows of seats and seats up to eight people. JLR announced the Defender 130 Outbound, a luxury version of the long-distance off-road vehicle. And it’s not just a Defender with a little more technology and comfort, it’s also the ultimate luxury off-roader you can buy today.


Although longer than those we’ve seen before, the 130 is still the first Defender. It has all the special features you would expect from an off-road vehicle of the Defender caliber. But there’s more where that came from. The Defender 130, as we mentioned, is a three-row SUV that can accommodate up to 8 people. The Defender 130 Outbound may have the same wheelbase, length and interior space, it only has 5 seats spread across just two rows. Instead of a third row of seats, what we get is a huge amount of cargo space to carry anything you might need.

According to Defender CEO Mark Cameron, the unique design innovations and spacious interior of the Defender 130 Outbound offer an exciting combination of capability and practicality for adventure seekers on the a long street. In the back, you’ll have a whopping 1,329 liters (47 cubic feet) of cargo space to store your stuff, and if you drop the second row of seats, capacity increases to an even more impressive 2,516 liters ( 88.8 cubic feet). ). The cargo floor is nearly flat and only about 3.3 feet long, making it easier to load larger items into the trunk. There are practical details everywhere, from the glove box to the roof rack.


With all that luggage and space for up to five people, the Defender 130 Outbound needs a powerful powertrain, one that will keep delivering the power it needs at all times. Land Rover went the American route and deployed the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 from the Defender 110. This engine is good for up to 493 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. According to Land Rover, the powerful engine allows the giant Defender 130 Outbound to reach speeds from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds and can tow up to 3,000 kg (6613 lbs). Additionally, the Defender 130 Outbound will also feature the 3-liter, six-cylinder Ingenium P400 and D300 engines combined with the mild hybrid system we have on the standard Defender 130.

In terms of mechanical and off-road capabilities, JLR has kept the Defender’s reputation intact with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and Terrain Response 2, ensuring optimal traction regardless of the surface beneath the Goodyear tires Wrangler Duratrac All-Terrain or front obstacle. Surname. Additionally, Electronic Air Suspension and Adaptive Dynamics are standard on this version. But that’s always been present with Defender, especially the newest models since their re-appearance in 2020.


With an SUV over 5 meters long, it’s impossible to miss it on the road and ignore the massive presence it boasts. Defender 130 has Fuji White, Santorini Black, Carpathian Gray and Eiger Gray color options. But the Outbound version only comes in Carpathian Gray and Santorini Black from those colors. A layer of Satin Protective Film is available as an option to protect the exterior from scratches and make it look even more stealthy.

There are options of full Windsor leather or durable Resistant fabric upholstery for the interior. Additionally, you get plenty of comfort and convenience features in the cabin. The interior is finished in Ebony with an Ebony Morzine headliner. Outbound also has Robustec veneer cladding and signature cross beams coated with Satin Black powder coating. Talking about the shape, the main change is at the rear as expected since the front looks similar to other Defender models. The side panel swaps the glass windows for a sturdy panel at the back, and there’s a step for easy access to the roof.
