Keeping the Defender well within the EU5 emissions regulations, Land Rover has decided to replace the Ford Transit-sourced 2,4-litre turbodiesel engine with a smaller 2,2-litre unit for 2012. The new engine might have more compact dimensions, but it produces the same amount of power and torque but, more importantly, coughs out less CO2 than its predecessor.
