Land Rover Defender 1990

In 1990 the 90/110's became known as the Defender, to differentiate them from the newly launched Discovery. With the name change came a new Turbo Diesel engine, the the 200Tdi, providing better fuel consumption and a larger engine block to blow away previous engine's reliability issues.

The gearbox used was the LT77, which gave the models 5-speed gears as standard, and retained the LT230T transfer box


Power steering became the standard with steering wheel and trim changes. The gearbox was replaced with the LT77S, which is stronger, smoother gear changes and is referred to as the 'Short stick' gear box.


Disc brakes were added to the rear wheels as standard.
