Land Rover Defender, Now With Added Tent

Mon 22nd Jun 2020

The all-new Land Rover Defender, which was launched to customers in 2020, may have the ultimate accessory for a summer of staycations - a tent.

The tent, which can sleep two adults, is ‘as tough and capable as the vehicle for which it was created’ according to the press release and comes with a mattress, pillows, an interior light, a rear canopy and a compact aluminium ladder.

Joe Sinclair, Land Rover's director of branded goods and licencing, said: “The new Land Rover Defender is the ideal vehicle to reach remote destinations comfortably both on and off road. This roof tent will enable Defender drivers to continue their adventure above and beyond their journey; it's perfect for the modern-day explorer.”

Giuseppe Fercodini, CEO of Autohome, said: “Land Rover has worked hand-in-hand with our technicians to design a unique roof tent for the Land Rover Defender. This tent is much more than a campsite accessory: its strength, comfort, versatility and reliability makes it ideal for extreme camping and off-road holidays.”

The new-look Defender was unveiled in September 2019 and replaces the iconic off-road vehicle which had been a staple of motor adventures for more than 60 years. The Land Rover Defender 110 comes with 170 different accessories, including the tent which was developed with roof tent specialists Autohome. The tent is available priced in the region of £2784 and works in conjunction with the Expedition roof rack and roof rails, which are standard on Land Rover’s Adventure Pack.
