The limited edition model, offered only with the Defender 110, features a new red paint option with contrasting blacked-out elements

Land Rover Defender Sedona Edition

One of the globally popular luxury offroaders, the Land Rover Defender, has now got some updates to its international lineup. It gets a new limited-edition version for the 110 body-style, while also featuring the option of captain seats in the second row of the longer 130 body-style variants. Here’s everything you need to know:

Defender Sedona Edition

Land Rover is offering a new Sedona Edition with the Defender 110 variant, and it will be available only for one year. It gets a fresh red exterior colour inspired by the sandstone landforms in Sedona, Arizona, hence its name. The Sedona Red was previously limited to the Defender 130. The new limited edition is based on the Defender 110’s top-spec X-Dynamic HSE variant.

The new red shade is complemented by the blacked-out treatment for the ‘Defender’ moniker on the hood, 20-inch alloy wheels, sidesteps, and grille. That said, the tailgate-mounted spare wheel’s cover has the same red finish as the SUV’s exterior.

Land Rover has provided the Sedona Edition with a new optional bonnet decal, depicting the topography of Sedona. It also gets a side-mounted gear carrier, which is handy for carrying off-road specific equipment, and wet or muddy clothing.

The only major revision on the interior is the new grey cabin theme and seat upholstery. As part of the update, the SUV’s limited edition comes with smartly provisioned storage compartments for the front passengers. No other feature changes have been made to the Defender 110.

Captain Chairs For Defender 130

Since its global launch, the Land Rover Defender 130 was available with a 3-row seating layout capable of carrying up to eight passengers. It now gets the option of captain chairs in the second row, featuring both heating and cooling functions. You can also have winged headrests on the captain chair seats on the Defender X and V8 variants. The practicality quotient here hasn’t been missed as the middle-row occupants get twin cupholders located just behind the front centre console.

Updated Diesel Engine

The updated Defender gets a new D350 diesel mild-hybrid engine, replacing the previously offered D300 mild-hybrid diesel powertrain. Its 3-litre diesel engine now makes 350 PS and 700 Nm, figures that have increased by 50 PS and 50 Nm respectively. It gets the same 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive (AWD) option as before

Other engine options for the Land Rover Defender include a 2-litre turbo-petrol engine (300 PS), a 5-litre V8 petrol engine (425 PS) and a 5-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine (525 PS).
