- The all-new Trophy Edition pays tribute to previous generation Trophy Defenders

The Land Rover Defender is an off-road icon. Like the Jeep Wrangler and Mercedes-Benz G-Class, it started life as a rugged military vehicle, transporting troops to the most inhospitable locations.
Still, the Defender’s reputation isn’t merely rooted in its military past. Much of its credibility comes from the Defender Trophy cars, a series of off-roaders that crossed the most challenging terrain imaginable. What you’re looking at here is a tribute to that: The Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition.
“The Defender Trophy Edition continues to embrace the spirit of adventure while honoring Land Rover’s rich and iconic heritage,” said Joe Eberhardt, President and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America.
As with any decent special edition, only 250 will be made, all based on the Defender 90 P400. The 90 means it’s a shorty, while the 400 refers to the metric horses produced by its mild-hybrid assisted turbocharged inline-six.
The SWB Trophy Edition follows a little more than a year after the introduction of the four-door model.
