2022 Model Displayed


The 2023 Land Rover Defender towing capacity varies between 7,716 and 8,201 pounds, depending on your choice of body style and engine. If you’d like to be able to tow the maximum, opt for a Land Rover Defender 110 or a Land Rover Defender 130, and be sure to choose the available P400 i6 engine.

 

 

How Much Can a Land Rover Defender Tow?

It’s impossible to answer the question, “How much can a Land Rover Defender tow?”, without exploring each of the available engine options. With that said, every single Land Rover Defender has what it takes to move massive amounts of cargo. Check out all of your options to see exactly what we mean:

2.0L P300 I4 Gasoline Engine

  • Max towing capacity of 7,716-pound
  • Generates 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque

3.0L P400 I6 Gasoline MHEV Engine

  • Towing capacity of 7,716 pounds (Defender 90)
  • Towing capacity of 8,201 pounds (Defender 110 or 130)
  • Generates 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque

5.0L P525 V8 Gasoline Engine

  • Towing capacity of 7,716 pounds
  • Generates 518 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque

Although the most ambitious Newport Beach-area buyers should stick with the P400, even a Defender 90 with the smallest engine can tow well over 7,000 pounds. That’s more than enough strength to transport a trailer, a camper, a boat, or just about anything else. Where consumer vehicles are concerned, only 1/2-ton pickups offer higher upper limits.
