New vs Old Land Rover Defender - TUG OF WAR

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
We know you tug of war fans have been looking forward to this one... We've got the all-new Defender with us, and it's going head-to-head against the previous generation!
When it was first unveiled, a number of Defender fanboys came out saying they weren't happy with the latest generation. But does it really deserve all the hate?! People have claimed it wouldn't be able to compete with the power of the older model, so we thought this would be the perfect way to put it to the test!
But who's your money on? Does the older model have what it takes to claim the win? Or will the tech that's packed into the latest release be enough to pull it to victory? There's only one way to find out - LET'S GO!
Thanks to Nene Overland for lending us the old Defender -

  • Matt... you should drive slowly like the one in the new defender that gives you much more traction so obviously the new one will win, if you accelerate that much... plus you should use diff lock

  • Listen your using the old defender wich may i ad is a 2014 so not that old and has got the ford transit van puma engine in wich a skoda would out performe your not not been fair to the old defender try TD5 defender thats the real old one. Your using the 2014 plate because they had such a bad name for been gutless. I use these things day in day out defender TD5 puma discover 3 all for pulling heavy loads let me tell you defenders was built properly 15years ago. You know if you put a TD5 up against that new thing it will pull it to pieces

  • Diff lock on the old one wasn't engaged. Traction control is available on the old one. And anti stall is only on first gear low. On grass its always down to tyres and weight. I wish these things were done properly.

    • Also note the rope is higher on the new defender. This will have the affect of lifting the weight off the old one and driving the new one down into the ground. I'm not convinced that a 110 with difflock and traction control with those tyres would loose to a new defender when it had road biased. For the record I have a 110 XS Utility. It has traction control and centre difflock.

  • Dear host, with all due respect, do you know that the V8 Diesels have close to 600 ft-lbs of torque? if you want to make a fair comparison, you should compete the best defenders vs the new defender... I would think you know this, so that is why I say your demo is totally useless

  • Honestly. What a farce. Tug of war... Power doesn't matter, no velocity. Traction at the wheels matters. This is dictated by tyre and wheel interface (friction) and the vertical loading (weight). So if it has the same grip and more weight it will win. Sigh.... Slip control may help a bit but, get some extra mass in the old defender, lock all the diffs and watch........ Gimme a steam traction engine... I'm struggling to believe that these guys get income from this 'test'.....

    Mark SandfordMark Sandford13 أيام قبل
  • Never doubted the new is a very capable vehicle. I just con't see it as an utilitarian for the long term owner. And a rich one, of course. I'd like to the same test, with a beaten "new" one in, say, 15 years. I'll wait for the test of time and use

  • With those tires on the old one, I would have gone full throttle, some wheelspin is actually useful when pulling out of mud or snow, especially with a locking diff. I daily drive a RWD, and the only way to get out of heavy snow is by disabling the ESP and drifting myself out of it

  • Completely unfair test - if you're going to do a tug of war you've got to have the tow rope level on both vehicles. On the old defender the tow rope is at axle height but on the new one it's at the top of the wheel level so when you pull you are actually forcing the back of the new defender down into the ground and giving it far more traction.

  • All the gullible people thinking that the new one is a lot better than the older Land Rover, this guy didn’t even engage the centre locking or the front or rear diffs, basically meaning that it was only giving power on 1 axle, the small gearstick next to the big one is to engage the locking diffs, he didn’t even touch it and I can tell you from experience of owning a Land Rover 90 that it would’ve done a lot better than that if the diffs were engaged. You even said it had manual locking diffs but didn’t even touch the fucking lever to engage them. Stop trying to make the older ones look worse than they actually are Rant over

  • Another nonsense of a test by Carwow. Firstly look at the towbar height difference (which is adjustable on the old defender). The new model height was so high the back of the old model is literally being lifted off the ground). Secondly, was diff lock even engaged on the old model- didn't look like it given both wheels weren't spinning. Thirdly, what on earth tyre pressures were you running on the off-road profile tyres on the old model - no squish at all = no grip. Another sponsored sham of a test I suppose.
