Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition (US Market)

While it’s an American market only special, we can’t help but fall in love with the styling of the Defender Trophy Edition.

Land Rover North America will produce 220 adventure-ready exclusive Defender Trophy Edition vehicles in 2021, paying tribute to the iconic 4x4’s long-standing expedition legacy.

Sorry New Zealand, the Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition is not available to us. But we absolutely wish it was. It takes the retro coolness of the current Defender and, paying homage to the great (Tobacco sponsored) exhibition challenge of the 80’s, amplifies it with this attractive ‘Camel’ colour scheme. Vinyl wrapping professionals take note!

Continuing the expedition legacy of the original Defender, Land Rover North America has announced a limited production Defender Trophy Edition.

Inspired by the Land Rover Classic Defender Works V8 Trophy, a limited edition of 25 re-engineered classic Defenders, the Trophy Edition carries on the same spirit of adventure for the North American market.

Based on the 22MY Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE, the Defender Trophy Edition features a special vehicle wrap inspired by the Defender Works V8 Trophy, an Extended Black Exterior Pack, tow hitch receiver, ClearSight RearView(1), Air Suspension Pack, Cold Climate Pack, 11.4-inch Touchscreen, Off-road Pack, and Advanced Off-road Capability Pack.

The Defender Trophy Edition is designed to tackle some of the most demanding endurance challenges. Additional all-terrain equipment includes expedition roof rack, front undershield, deployable ladder, winch installation kit, mud flaps, integrated air compressor, deep sided and loadspace rubber mats.

With 220 Defender Trophy Edition vehicles sold exclusively in the U.S., each will come with an opportunity for a two-person entry to a one-day off-road adventure in the Land Rover U.S. Trophy Competition. Up to 90 teams (six waves of 15 teams maximum on a first come, first served basis) will compete at the legendary Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C. starting from October 11, 2021. Competitors will face a number of on- and off-road challenges, including physical and team building obstacles.

Expert one-on-one coaching will be provided as part of the adventure, giving customers a unique opportunity to develop extreme driving techniques and skills in their own vehicle, before putting their training to the test.

The overall winning team, as determined by a judging panel, will go on to compete at The Land Rover Trophy Competition at Eastnor Castle in the U.K., the spiritual home of Land Rover testing and development, to take place early 2022.

The Defender Trophy Edition evokes the spirit of adventure with an array of off-road accessories and special features created for the ultimate Land Rover enthusiast. We’re looking forward to putting on a memorable adventure competition for our Defender Trophy Edition customers that will not only put these vehicles to the test but will also create a special shared experience honouring the rich heritage of the Land Rover brand.

The Defender Trophy Edition will be available this August, but only in America, which is the one thing we don’t like about it!
