In the Snow
We didn’t get a chance to head off-road in the new Defender, but we did tackle some fresh snow and found this latest Land Rover more than up to the challenge. We selected “Grass Gravel Snow” from the Terrain Response menu — a setting that reduces throttle response to lessen wheel slippage. We also raised the ride height for maximum ground clearance at an impressive 11.5 inches — a bit of overkill for a few inches of the white stuff, but fun all the same. While traversing roads with several inches of fresh snow the Defender felt solid and stable, providing plenty of confidence in its ability to handle the wintry conditions.
