‘Silver Pack’ and ‘Black Pack’ Land Rover Defenders headed to Geneva

Wed, 19 Feb 2014

The Land Rover Defender is one of those vehicles that we always hear about but never see at dealers stateside -- at least not since the ’90s. Unfortunately, that trend promises to continue with two new special editions: the Defender Silver Pack and Black Pack. Both will be shown at the Geneva motor show.

The Black Pack features a Santorini black finish on the roof, grille, grille surround, headlight surrounds and wheel arches. The Defender script on the hood is also in black. Tinted glass hides the interior, which sports a black headliner to complete the look. Two wheel packages are offered.

The Silver Pack puts bright Indus silver to the items that are black on the Black Pack. The Silver Pack gets dual-finish alloy wheels, with white tail- and indicator lights.

Tinted glass is one of the new options, though it’s standard on the Black Pack. It’s offered on hard top variants with fixed panel sides. Due to regulations, it only goes on the sides, not in the front or rear.

A new step bar finish is also offered, which can accent either package with the opposite color. Two-tone leather seats are also available, as is a front storage area with contrasting colors.

The Defender as we know it only has a few more years to live. Back in October, Land Rover told Automotive News that the off-roader won’t make it to model year 2020 due to increasingly strict European regulations.
