2025 Land Rover Defender OCTA First Look, Photo

  • by

The Land Rover Defender range has a new flagship, and it’s inspired by the beauty and toughness of diamonds. Meet the 2025 Land Rover Defender 110 OCTA—a blend of power, luxury, and off-road capability that promises to elevate the Defender experience to new heights.

What Does OCTA Mean? The OCTA name, positioned at the top of the Defender 110 range, draws inspiration from the octahedral shape of cut diamonds. This motif symbolizes durability and luxury. Look for the unique encircled graphic signature on OCTA models—a gloss black diamond shape with a machined titanium disk on various panels.

Power and Performance Under the hood, the Defender 110 OCTA packs a punch. Its BMW-sourced 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 churns out an impressive 626 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque (or up to 590 lb-ft in launch control). This makes it the most powerful production Defender ever. Paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and various drive modes, the OCTA sprints from 0 to 60 mph in a claimed 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph.

Upgrades and Enhancements The OCTA isn’t just about power; it’s about capability. Riding 1.1 inches higher and 2.7 inches wider than a standard Defender 110, the OCTA boasts extended wheel arches and new clearance lights. Its “6D” hydraulic suspension, adapted from the Range Rover Sport SV, offers vertical, lateral, and diagonal adaptability. Brembo-calipered brakes, 33-inch diameter tires, and redesigned bumpers enhance approach and departure angles. Plus, wading depth has increased to 3.3 feet.

Aesthetic Touches The 2025 Defender 110 OCTA features a larger grille for improved airflow, and its four-exit active exhaust system adds a sporty note. But remember, this SUV isn’t meant for jumping—its purpose lies in conquering rugged terrain with style.
