Land Rover Defender 90 US launch delayed until 2021

The 2020 Land Rover Defender has finally arrived in the U.S. to take American enthusiasts’ money. But the full lineup isn’t here yet.

The four-door 2020 Land Rover Defender 110 hit U.S. dealerships in June. The two-door Defender 90 will not be in U.S. dealers this fall as originally planned.

On Friday, Land Rover spokesman Joe Stauble confirmed to Motor Authority that the Defender 90 will now arrive in the U.S. in the spring of 2021 as a 2021 model.

“Due to the extremely positive reaction of customers and media to the New Defender, customer demand has been very strong. Overlaying the COVID-19 implications to build timing, we are now focusing on delivering Defender 110 customer orders. U.S. customers can work with their retailers to place orders for the 90 and anticipate an start of sale in the US of early 2021,” Stauble said.
