2020 Land Rover Defender 90 heading to US market

The entry-level model will start in the "mid $40,000" range.

Land Rover has announced US pricing and launch details for the 2020 Defender lineup, including the standard '110' and shorter '90' variants.

The Defender 110 will be the first model to land in American showrooms by spring 2020 with a $49,900 price tag, followed by the Defender 90 First Edition in the summer with a starting point of $65,100.

The company will then follow with the full range of Defender 90 configurations, including a base model that starts in the "mid $40,000s" price bracket. It is unclear if the cheapest model is the bare-bones commercial edition with steel wheels, or a slightly more upmarket package.

The Defender has not been sold in the US market since the 1997 model year. The company expects the modernized SUV to help boost sales, mostly driven by projected demand for the longer 110 edition.
