Are you interested in taking the new Land Rover Defender off-road around Paramus? The much-awaited revival of the classic Land Rover Defender has kept off-road enthusiasts on the edges of their seats for months. Now that the Defender is finally here, read on to learn more about the Land Rover Defender off-road performance. Want to explore it in person? Head into Land Rover Paramus or find out how to shop from home.
The Land Rover Defender comes with Land Rover Full-Time Four-Wheel Drive, which propels you forward over virtually any terrain around Ridgewood. It automatically redistributes your available torque, ensuring maximum traction on almost any surface. You can even shift into four-low for even more traction!

What do the auto industry experts say in their Land Rover Defender off-road reviews? Motor Trend says that “the new Defender eschews body-on-frame construction, live axles, and, in its most capable spec, even steel springs,”–all features that have traditionally been staples in the off-road market.
Curious how the Land Rover Defender compares to a top rival? Motor Trend goes on to point out that “The Defender 110 sports a 38-degree approach, 29-degree break-over, and 40-degree departure angle—the latter two angles beat the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon’s 20- and 37-degree breakover and departure angles, respectively.” Of course, since the Defender is available in two-door and four-door configurations, you’ll want to compare the 90 vs. 110 to get a better sense of how they measure up.
What about a real-world example? The off-road test from Carfection is full of kudos. Henry Catchpole completed a Land Rover Defender 2020 off-road test in Namibia, tackling some of the most rugged terrain on earth. His epic three-day adventure highlighted the new Defender model’s “amazing” air suspension and reliable performance, along with its fresh-feeling and luxurious yet “utilitarian” interior.
