The vehicle we now know as the Defender was born in 1983 as the Land Rover 90 and 110, depending on whether you chose a short or a long wheelbase. It was the first major change to the Land Rover's construction since the Series II model debuted in 1958, although even then some parts were interchangeable with earlier models. The Defender name was added in 1990, when Land Rover introduced its first direct injection diesel engine- the Tdi. For the first time since its launch, the Land Rover had the performance to match its off-road ability. The Tdi engine was updated again in 1993 with a more efficient injection system, while an all-new five-cylinder Td5 engine appeared in 1998. It may have been in production for over two decades, but the Defender remains the toughest 4x4 on the market and continues to sell well.
