The new 2020 Land Rover Defender has been unveiled in Kenya. The launch has attracted high bids as rich Kenyans scramble to buy the vehicle. Each unit is selling at between Sh. 11 million and Sh. 21.6 million.
According to Inchcape Kenya Limited, dealers for the new Land Rover Line-up that includes the luxurious Range Rover family and the versatile Discovery SUVs, already four of 15 units shipped in for last week’s launch have been bought.
The interest that the vehicle has generated is not so far fetched.
Few SUVs have as much pure off-road credibility as the legendary Land Rover Defender.
The Ultimate Expedition Machine dates back seven decades and has done it all, from crossing mountains to fording rivers and everything imaginable in between.
The new design comes with either two-door Defender 90 or four-door Defender 110, both of which are world-class experts, off and of on-road. There are six trim models – Defender, S, SE, HSE, First Edition or Defender X.
The new 2020 Land Rover Defender boasts of a 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, making it capable of towing up to 8,201 pounds.
Additional features include an MHEV technology which allows it to jump from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 5.7 seconds and keep it going all the way to a top speed of 129 miles per hour.
