This week in 1992: Land Rover Defender 110

This week in 1992: Land Rover Defender 110

Published by AutoweekUSA
Debuting in the fall of 1992 as a 1993 model, only 500 copies of the Land Rover Defender 110 were sent to the states.
Building on Land Rover’s past, the Defender 110 is a nimble truck, “capable of climbing slopes and fording waters that most drivers would fear to tackle.”
Able to handle 45-degree slopes and ford through waters 20-inches deep, the Defender 110 is powered by a 3.9-liter V8 (180 hp) mated to a five-speed manual.
We loved this purpose built vehicle and still do to this day.
