Boasting a powerful engine upgrade and a modern suspension system, this all-new Defender 130 is the ultimate summer rig.
Himalaya 4×4 President, Greg Shondel states, “Our new Himalaya 4×4 130 truck perfectly encapsulates the capabilities of our production team. We expertly constructed everything for a client who enjoys outdoor adventures, so they needed a truck capable of taking them anywhere.” With a meticulous focus on engine, suspension, braking, and handling, Himalaya has created the perfect summer rig that can also serve as a comfortable daily driver on modern roads. The company’s commitment to maintaining the vintage Defender aesthetic while incorporating modern luxury features ensures a truly exceptional driving experience.
The new Himalaya 4×4 130 comes equipped with a robust Cummins r2.8 Turbo Diesel engine, providing the truck with significant power and performance upgrades. To enhance drivability and overall performance capabilities, Himalaya has installed a custom-built four-link coilover suspension and Dynatrac axles. Grippy Brembo Disc Brakes offer improved stopping power, perfectly complementing the enhanced performance of the vehicle.
The 18″ Black Rhino wheels, paired with BF Goodrich performance tires, ensure excellent traction control and grip on almost any terrain. Limited slip front and rear differentials further enhance traction by redirecting torque to the wheel with the most traction, reducing slippage. Custom Himalaya 4×4 rock sliders with power folding side steps protect the vehicle’s undercarriage, while a specially-built wiring harness ensures durability. Additionally, bespoke-built fender flares and a new front bumper, complete with a winch, provide added protection and safety during off-roading or trail runs.
The exterior of the Himalaya 4×4 130 boasts a captivating sparkling silver paint color, a rare sight on such capable adventure vehicles. Inside, great attention to detail has been given to recreate the Defender 130’s interior. The cabin features a sleek two-tone leather wrap and an exclusively-designed center console. A custom JL Audio system delivers world-class entertainment, while a modern HVAC system guarantees comfort in all conditions. The classic Land Rover puma-style dashboard is enhanced by the addition of sleek Dakota Digital Gauges, further elevating the overall quality of the vehicle’s interior.
Himalaya offers custom builds starting at $250,000, with prices varying based on the level of customization requested. For Defender enthusiasts seeking a modern rendition of the legendary adventuring truck, Himalaya’s world-class builds continue to exceed expectations.
