There are many options on the market for folks looking to go off-road, and the Land Rover Defender is one of the most luxurious options out there. After all, it’s a Land Rover, and as such, it comes with more high-tech and luxurious features than other similar SUVs will. That being said, while the 2023 Land Rover Defender is a cool and capable SUV, it won’t be cheap, especially a fully loaded one with all of its available add-on accessories and packages.

How much the 2023 Land Rover Defender and its trims will cost

Currently, Land Rover offers two body styles for the Defender, the 90 and the 110. That being said, a smaller and cheaper body style, the 80, is coming soon. In any case, both body styles will cost about the same in terms of pricing. As shown on the Land Rover USA website, the 90 will start at about $52,300, while the 110 will start at about $51,700.

However, no matter which body style you pick, Land Rover will offer four additional trims to the Defender. There’s the X-Dynamic, which starts at about $70,000, the X, which starts at about $88,000, the V8, which starts at about $107,000, and the V8 Carpathian Edition, which starts at about $114,000. 

What’s the most expensive Defender model?

The V8 Carpathian Edition gives the Land Rover Defender a powerful, 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 518 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, though, the V8 Carpathian Edition adds plenty of standard luxury features, such as high-quality leather, adaptive cruise control, and an electric air suspension system. However, folks can add even more features to their Defender with additional accessories, equipment, and customization options.

There is a long list of features that Land Rover offers on the Defender, and they range from major upgrades to the interior or exterior of the car to more minor adjustments and details. Taken together, a customer can easily spend over $130,000 on a fully-loaded 2023 Land Rover Defender. That being said, many of those options may not be useful or necessary for many drivers.

For example, Land Rover offers an accessory called the Smoker’s Pack, which costs $60. This might be a good idea for folks who smoke, but obviously, it’s not very useful for everyone else. Many accessories that Land Rover offers are more practical, though. For about $250, folks can get front and rear mud flaps, and these are very useful for folks looking to take their Defender off-road.

Land Rover option packs to simplify the process

There are also a lot of cheaper accessory upgrades for the Land Rover Defender, but, like with the Smoker’s Pack, these may not be for everyone. For example, for about $30, folks can get a few Union Jack valve caps. This might be a good idea for British customers, but that’s not going to be for everyone. However, accessories that are for everyone are the infotainment add-ons.

These add-ons will cost about $150 each, but folks can add an iPad to the car’s rear seats. Samsung tablets are available, too, and they’ll be cheaper than the iPad option. However, folks who don’t want to spend too much time reading about and considering all the options and accessories that Land Rover offers can look at the option packs instead.

For example, for about $1,900, folks can get the Pet Care and Access pack. This pack will add a ramp for pets, a rinse system, and more to the car. There are many other packs, of course, and they can improve the interior, the exterior, and the cargo area of your Defender.
