As the reveal of the all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender inches closer — it's set for the Frankfurt auto show in September — we've now learned that what we're actually anticipating is the debut of three new SUVs, not just one. Leaked information reported in Autocar India reveals that the iconic off-roader will be offered as three distinct models in three different sizes.

The three offerings will be the Land Rover Defender 90, Defender 110, and Defender 130, resurrecting previous model designations. In the past, those numbers corresponded to each vehicle's wheelbase, but that won't be the case for the 2020 Defender. The Defender 90 is a two-door, and is said to be closest in concept to the previous Defender.

It will offer seating for five or six, although the exact configuration — three-seat front bench or side facing jump seat in the cargo area — is not known. The Defender 90 reportedly rides on a 101.9-inch wheelbase and is 170.2 inches long overall.

For comparison, a two-door Jeep Wrangler is 166.8 inches long and has a 96.8-inch wheelbase. The Defender 90 is the tallest of the trio at 75.9 inches (approximately two inches taller than a Wrangler) and is 78.7 inches wide, same as all Defender models.

It adds more than a foot of extra length — presumably to the rear overhang — for a total bumper-to-bumper dimension of 200.8 inches, putting it close the the Mercedes-Benz GLS in size. The Defender 130 will seat eight passengers. Both the 110 and the 130 stand 75.4 inches tall, or about half an inch shorter than the Defender 90.

Engine-wise, Land Rover is said to be preparing a trio of 2.0- and 3.0-liter turbo-diesels for international markets, but we're likely to see the gasoline offerings. They are said to include an Ingenium 2.0-liter turbo good for 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, a 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid with a combined output of 404 horses and engine output of 295 lb-ft, and a 3.0-liter turbo V6 rated at 400 horsepower and 406 lb-ft.

The second-generation Range Rover Evoque has quickly established itself as a class leader, recently toppling the previously unflappable Volvo XC40. That’s no mean feat given how far the XC40 raised the benchmark in what previously had been a fairly underwhelming sector dynamically. The Evoque’s coronation was with diesel power; now we try the stylish compact SUV with a petrol engine for the first time on home soil. Specifically, an engine Land Rover badges P200.

The new Land Rover Defender is one of the most anticipated new models for this year. CarAdvice reports the rugged SUV will make its first international appearance in September this year. Land Rover has already commented on a couple of occasions that the new 2020 Defender won’t be just a

Land Rover formally announced today that it would bring its storied Defender back to the U.S., calling "a Defender for the 21st century." Though definitely boxier than the already boxy Range Rover , it will be a bit thicker at every surface than previous Defenders thanks both to meeting U.S. regulations

Sadly, but not surprisingly, a manual transmission is not believed to be part of the plan. Land Rover's upscale ambitions for the model are revealed in some of the equipment that will be on offer, which include Windsor leather, 16-way power seats, and a 12-inch digital instrument cluster.

We don't know whether Land Rover will unveil all three versions at the Frankfurt show, or whether it will space out the reveals. The Defender 110, however is expected to be the first to market, this fall, with the Defender 90 following in the spring of 2020, and the Defender 130 arriving a little over a year from now.
