Maximum Wading Depth
The 2023 Land Rover Defender has the capacity for smooth on-road commutes as well as exciting off-road journeys.
Whether you’re driving on the highway or over rocky terrain, the standard Intelligent All Wheel Drive System will come in handy. Snow, rain, mud, or sand—no matter which path you take, you’ll be defended against the elements!
The available Terrain Response® 2 feature is especially useful for those off-roading adventures. It offers six driving modes, including:
What’s even better is that the system will automatically choose the appropriate mode. All you’ll need to do is focus on the ride ahead!
Ease your way through water, too. Standard Terrain Response® utilizes a coil suspension, which means not only do you get a 33.4-inch wading depth but sensors in the door mirrors will alert you when you’ve approached that maximum number. Stay strong as you make your way through areas not explored by many other automobiles!
While the 2023 Defender can be fun to drive, you’ll have ways of staying entertained in the cabin, too.
This is partly thanks to the standard Pivi Pro infotainment system. All your media options will be accessible through a 11.4-inch Touchscreen, such as:
The first feature offers an additional way of listening to your favorite songs and discovering new ones. The last two allow you to connect your smartphone to the Pivi Pro system. You can then listen to podcasts, audiobooks, phone calls, and more on the 6-speaker sound system, or choose the available Meridian™ Surround Sound System—the 14 speakers plus subwoofer will provide a fully immersive listening experience!
Finally, no matter how many people are inside your vehicle, it’s important you all stay safe while getting from Point A to Point B. Luckily, the Land Rover Defender is packed with advanced features that provide great peace of mind.
These include standard safety features, like:
A 3D Surround Camera with ClearSight Ground View is standard, too. A camera is strategically placed on the front underside of the Defender. While that area would otherwise be invisible, this camera system brings it all into clear view.
