A custom defender is one of the most unique vehicles on the planet. It combines a mighty SUV with an off-road icon. And with one of the most comprehensive aftermarkets in the world, it’s easy to build the Land Rover Defender of your dreams.
Why was the Defender discontinued?
The custom defender you’ll drive is going to be a unique combination of style, capability and comfort that will take your off-roading adventures to the next level. From a redesigned interior to an updated powertrain, E.C.D Automotive Design will help you turn your old Defender into a jaw-dropping custom vehicle.
ECO brings the best in performance upgrades to your restored Defender with detailed craftsmanship and a one-of-a-kind design. Their design concierge will work with you to create the truck you’ve always wanted, all while keeping the timeless looks of your original Defender.
They offer a wide variety of engine options, including a 3.9-liter, 182-hp crate engine, and a low-miles Chevy LS3 V8. The LS3 is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission, and it has a lot of oomph to it.
The ride is smooth and quiet, thanks to an air suspension system that smooths out bumps and eliminates rattles. There’s also a regenerative braking system that helps you slow the truck down with just the push of a button.
It has a modern head unit that’s got both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but the rest of the interior is very classic Land Rover. It has a column stalk shifter, climate control and a rearview camera. It’s a great way to get a little bit of modern technology in a Defender without making it feel too much like a different vehicle.
