Rich in heritage, Land Rover has debuted its latest, and longest SUV with lots of fanfare to entice buyers looking for off-road chops combined with luxurious features. The new Defender 130 is a takeoff from the 110 model, adding 13 inches in length, accommodating third row seating for eight or oodles of cargo.

First impressions are lasting with this nearly 18-foot chariot that will challenge most standard size garages, something to consider in northern climates.
