2020 Land Rover Defender vs. Its Competition

2020 Land Rover Defender
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Land Rover Defender will compete against luxury off-roaders and hardcore off-roaders alike.

The Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee can overlap the Defender in price and capabilities, although die-hards aren’t easily swayed from other brands.

The G-Class is a six-figure superlative luxury machine, although top trims of the Defender may approach $100,000 with every option thrown at it.

The Toyota 4Runner is a two-row throwback SUV like the Defender, although it’s aged and can’t compete in luxury features.

The Land Rover Discovery will sit across showrooms from the Defender and may be the better pick for hauling families around town.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Land Rover Defender is a return to the U.S. for the boxy off-roader that helped start it all. This time with far more creature comforts.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee impresses with style and performance, but lags behind in safety and fuel economy.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is an American SUV icon and off-road wonder, but not without compromise.
The latest Land Rover Discovery trades Patagonia for Hugo Boss, but it’ll still head to the trails with the best of them.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz G-Class may not look different than its predecessor, but its new suspension and interior bring it into the 21st century. Finally.
The 2020 Toyota 4Runner is a solid choice for weekend warriors made better this year thanks to more safety gear, but pavement-pounders should look elsewhere.
