Land Rover announces black and silver Defender for GenevaThu, 20 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800
The new Black Pack on the Land Rover Defender paints the roof, grille and headlight surrounds, wheel arches, Defender badge and interior facia in the manufacturer’s Santorini black finish.
Privacy glass (a first for the Defender) is included in the pack, and ebony Alston headlining – as seen on the latest Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models – is added to the interior.
Buyers will get a choice of two wheel variations in, you guessed it, black. These include 16-inch Sawtooth alloys seen on previous special editions such as the Defender LXV; or for the ultimate urban off-roader look, you can opt for heavy duty steel wheels.

The Land Rover Defender’s Silver Pack is very similar to the Black Pack but, well, silver. The roof is finished in Indus silver – along with the grille and headlight surrounds and facia.
It features Dual Finish alloys, and the bright light pack with white tail and indicator lights is included as standard.
Land RoverNew options for the Land Rover Defender in 2014
As we mentioned above, the Land Rover Defender Black Pack offers privacy glass on the vehicle for the first time – but it will also be available as a standalone extra, avoiding the need to specify the full stealth look.
Buyers can now also opt for premium leather seats in contrasting colours
In addition, side runners, previously only available in black, will now be available in silver. Perfect for protecting your Defender with its Silver Pack from car park dings and runaway trollies.
Buyers can now also opt for premium leather seats in contrasting colours, with a choice of Ebony/Pimento, Ebony/Tan or Ebony/Lunar. And you thought the Defender was a working vehicle? Apparently Land Rover now sees the Defender as a rival for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class...
All UK Land Rover Defender 90 and 110s are now fitted with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) as standard, and ABS will be available for the first time on all LWB Defender 130 models from later this year. It’s about time it joined the 21st century, we'd say.Land Rover Defender option prices
Land Rover hasn’t said how much any of these new options are going to cost, but we will find out more at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Keep an eye on MSN Cars where we’ll bring you the latest from the show starting 4 March 2014.
