by Dubaiforum

The upcoming 2025 Land Rover Defender OCTA is generating a buzz among Defender enthusiasts and auto enthusiasts alike. Many criticized the previous L663 series for moving to a unibody design instead of the traditional body-on-frame structure. Concerns were also raised about the Defender becoming too luxurious.

However, Jaguar Land Rover, the British automaker that owns Land Rover, has reported a significant increase in sales, with Defender sales alone rising by 5 percent to 28,702 units worldwide in the past quarter. To keep the Defender lineup fresh, Jaguar Land Rover is preparing extensive updates for the 2025 model year.

The OCTA trim level is set to be the flagship model, equipped with a twin-turbo V8 engine sourced from BMW. This engine, codenamed S68, offers impressive power figures and is designed with hybridization in mind. The OCTA is expected to deliver similar performance to the Range Rover Sport SV, including 6D Dynamics air suspension for enhanced driving dynamics and control.

Spy photographers have spotted camouflaged prototypes of the Defender OCTA undergoing testing at the Nürburgring, showcasing its agility and performance capabilities. The vehicle has also been tested in various terrains globally, displaying its versatility and off-road capabilities.

Rumors suggest that the Defender OCTA will be officially revealed on July 11, marking the beginning of the Defender Elements series. While details about the Elements series are scarce, the OCTA is expected to set a new benchmark for power and luxury in the Defender lineup.

Overall, the upcoming 2025 Land Rover Defender OCTA promises to deliver a unique blend of performance, luxury, and off-road capabilities, catering to the demands of Defender enthusiasts and luxury SUV buyers alike.
