Tug Of War: New Land Rover Defender vs Two Old Defenders

The new Defender gets into a tug of war against two old Defenders; one of them converted to an EV

Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ held a tug of war between a new Defender and two old-school Defenders; one being an EV and the other a diesel

The new Defender comes with a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder turbo engine that makes 250 HP and 420 lb-ft of twist. There is a ton of other off-road equipment

The Defender EV comes with a single motor that makes 450 HP and 332 lb-ft of torque. It only has one off-road mode

The Defender diesel ‘Spectre Edition’ is powered by a diesel engine that makes the same outputs as the EV

The new Defender is over 500 pounds lighter than the Defender EV, and the diesel Defender over 700 pounds heavier than the new Defender

The first tug of war was between the new Defender and the EV. The former won quite comfortably, thanks to all the off-road wizardry

The second match was between the new Defender and the old diesel. The latter took the new SUV to the cleaners
