it was clear to Land Rover that the stakes were high. There was no
slowing down. Keeping up with the pace, it introduced the Defender 90
in 1989. The Defender got its name from the size of its wheelbase with

worlds. Prior to its launch, Land Rover models were known for their

bank. Interestingly, the luxury of the Discovery was not at the
expense of its off-road notoriety.
