The new Land Rover Defender has only just lobbed on Australian shores, but the 2021 model will be here soon and bring with it new six-cylinder diesel engines and short wheelbase Defender 90 models.

All of the diesel Defender 110 models that landed in 2020 were sold prior to arrival, creating a shortage of them and, as a result, only the petrol-fuelled P400 110s are currently available.

This was in part due to the COVID-19 factory shutdown and global demand for the diesels. Land Rover expects no such shortages when the 2021 rangelands in February.

“The factory should be back up to 100 per cent (production) when our 2021 cars are built in November,” Land Rover Australia’s James Scrimshaw told 4X4 Australia. “There will be no supply issues with the 2021 model.”
