In the latest update to the Land Rover Defender lineup, the existing 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder D300 diesel powertrain is replaced by the more powerful D350 unit. This upgraded mill now delivers 345 bhp and 700Nm of torque. Additionally, there are revisions to the powertrain options, with the discontinuation of the P400 petrol and P400e plug-in hybrid variants. These are replaced by the new P425 and P300e powertrains.

The P425 unit is derived from the previous 5.0-litre V8 engine, while the P300e features a smaller 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine paired with plug-in hybrid setup. However, Land Rover notes that these changes are market-dependent, and existing powertrains may continue to be available in certain regions.
