History

Production of the model now known as the Defender began in 1983 as the Land Rover 110, name which reflected the 110-inch (2,800mm) length of the wheelbase. The Land Rover 90, ith 93-inch (2,362mm) wheelbase, nd Land Rover 127, ith 127-inch (3,226mm) wheelbase, oon followed.[3]

Outwardly, here is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. A full-length bonnet, evised grille, lus the fitting of wheel arch extensions to cover wider-track axles are the most noticeable changes. Initially the Land Rover was also available with a part-time 4WD system familiar to all derivatives produced since 1949. The part-time system failed to sell and was quickly dropped from the options list by 1984. While the engine and other body panels carried over from the Series III, echanically the 90 and 110 were modernized, ncluding:

  • Coil springs, ffering a more comfortable ride and improved axle articulation
  • A permanent four-wheel-drive system derived from the Range Rover, eaturing a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential
  • A modernised interior
  • A taller one-piece windscreen
  • A new series of progressively more powerful and more modern engines
The 110 was launched in 1983, nd the 90 followed in 1984. From 1984, ind-up windows were fitted (Series models and very early 110s had sliding panels), nd a 2.5-litre (153cuin), 8 horsepower (51kW) diesel engine was introduced. This was based on the earlier 2.3-litre (140cuin) engine, ut had a more modern fuel-injection system as well as increased capacity. A low compression version of the 3.5-litre (214cuin) V8 Range Rover engine transformed performance. It was initially available in the 110 with a four-speed transmission with integral transfer case, hen later in conjunction with a high strength "Santana" five-speed transmission.[4]

This period saw Land Rover market the utility Land Rover as a private recreational vehicle. While the basic pick-up, x4 and van versions were still working vehicles, he County 4x4s were sold as multi-purpose family vehicles, eaturing improved interior trim and more comfortable seats. This change was reflected in Land Rover starting what had long been common practice in the car industry— detail changes and improvements to the County model from year to year in order to attract new buyers and to encourage existing owners to trade in for a new vehicle. These changes included different exterior styling graphics and colour options, nd the introduction of new options, uch as radio-cassette players, tyled wheels, eadlamp wash and wipe systems, s well as accessories such as surfboard carriers and bike racks. The switch from leaf spring to coil spring suspension was a key part of the new model's success. It offered improved off-road ability, oad capacity, andling, nd ride comfort.
