2021 Land Rover Defender 0-60 and Quarter Mile Times


The 2021 Land Rover Defender comes equipped with a 2-liter Inline 4 that makes 296 hp @ 4000 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. @ 1500 rpm of torque. The car takes 7.7 seconds to reach 60 MPH from a standstill while it is able to run a quarter-mile in 16.4 seconds. All the trims are powered by the same engine, hence, there is no change in the performance figures as you go up the trims.

When it comes to acceleration, the 2021 Land Rover Defender finds it difficult to catch up to its rivals. It is the slowest car in the lot and takes forever to reach from zero to 60MPH. The story doesn’t end here as the car runs out of breath and comes last even in the quarter-mile run. If you are looking for a car that’ll give you goosebumps when you tap the paddle hard, 2021 Land Rover Defender isn’t what you’re looking for rather go for the 2021 Ford Explorer

Not happy with this choice I made

Pros - Can handle all kinds of terrain

Cons - 2-doors, jerky and uneven ride quality, and only 15mpg and 17mpg

Dismal quality Bought this car as it can handle all kinds of terrain but did not understand that I have to leave so many things in order to enjoy that. The 2-door system is affecting even though I thought it won't. The ride quality is uneven at best and I am only getting 15mpg in cities and 17mpg on freeways after just 2 months of driving it. Just imagine. Thought the salesman was watching my back by offering me the Defender at attractive rates, instead looks like he was looking at the dealership bottom line after all.

The legendary Defender with modern features

Pros - Retro boxy looks, great off-roading capability, great ride quality

Cons - No complimentary scheduled maintenance

The driveability is at par with other Landrover siblings but this one has great off roading capability, handles rugged terrains well The driving dynamics are very good, the independent suspension and 4WD makes a good combo for off roading, the adventure package has added rear scuff protector which will really save the costly bumper in my future endevours. Amazing features and equipments provided with the adventure package, a rinsing system, side cargo carrier, running board are provided. Nice and clean, the central console can be flipped open as a mid seat between the drive r and the passenger, the shifter is mounted below the touchscreen, the cargo volume is low but roof top cargo carriers can be opted for. I have been a loyal customer here for quite long now. I have been witnessing their exceptional customer service firsthand. I really like how prompt their mobile service unit is. Highly recommended.

Car of the Afficionado's

Pros - "Sure-footed handling and smooth ride Comfortable, supportive seats"

Cons - Two-door models offer subpar cargo capacity

Less space and so-so infotainment The Defender's infotainment system is one of the best in its class. Land Rover's software is very responsive and easy to use. Standard features include luxury SUV staples like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a navigation system, plus off-road settings. Among t hem is a terrain management system that lets you customize your driving experience to current surfaces and weather conditions.
