  • Tow hitch receiver
  • Air Suspension Pack
  • Cold Climate Pack
  • 11.4-inch touchscreen
  • Off-road Pack (with ability to add Advanced Off-road Capability Pack)

Trophy Edition Defender: Eyecatching, Off-Road Capable

For drivers looking to get their Defender dirty, the Trophy Edition comes with additional off-road goodies. From the expedition roof rack, front undershield, deployable ladder, winch installation kit, mud flaps, and rubber mats, the Trophy Edition Defender comes decked top to bottom, inside and out for off-pavement adventure.

The onboard air compressor even ensures that you can air down your tires for the roughest terrain.

The custom yellow and black wrap, inspired by the Defender Works V8 Trophy, will turn heads on- and off-road. Combined with the Defender’s Extended Black Exterior Pack, the Trophy Edition looks the part.

Land Rover Off-Road ‘Trophy Competition’

Uniquely, Land Rover will offer each of the 220 owners an opportunity to participate in a one-day, off-road adventure. Owners will receive a two-person entry into the Land Rover U.S. Trophy Competition held at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, starting on October 11, 2021.

Up to 90 teams — first come, first served — will tackle a number of on- and off-road challenges as well as face team-building obstacles. The event also includes one-on-one coaching, giving drivers the opportunity to hone their driving skills behind the wheel of their Defender before toeing the line.

The Defender Trophy Edition, which will be available to purchase in August, comes with a starting price of $90,000 and can be purchased at specific Land Rover retailers in the U.S.
