New Land Rover Defender Uses Dana Axles
The new 2021 Land Rover Defender features Dana Inc.'s latest Spicer AdvanTEK axles, which are designed to deliver improved performance and greater power density in a compact package.
"Dana’s association began when Land Rover specified Spicer front and rear axles in the early 1980s and continued through 2016, when the original iconic vehicle was discontinued," say Dana officials.
"The all-new Defender re-emerged in 2020 and once again specified Dana’s robust Spicer axle designs."
"We are proud to supply a variety of world- renowned vehicles, including the all-new, tough and capable Defender,” says Bob Pyle, executive vice president and president of light vehicle drive systems for Dana.
“We are pleased to extend our 70-year relationship with Jaguar Land Rover and once again supply our advanced technologies to this iconic vehicle
