The Land Rover 110 was a natural progression from the Series III model. Introduced in 1983, it featured coil sprung suspension compared to the leaf springs of the previous model, a revised grille, a full-length bonnet which was first introduced with the Stage 1 V8, wider track axles, and wheel arch extensions.
Other differences included permanent four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer box and a lockable centre differential, and a one-piece windscreen. Engines ranged from the 2.25 litre diesel through to the 3.5 litre V8 petrol.
The wheelbase measures 110 inches, hence the model name. In 1990 it was rebadged as the "Defender". Vehicle dimensions for the 110 model are as follows:
|Soft Top||Pick-up||Hard Top||Station Wagon||High Capacity Pick-up|
|Height||2035mm (depending on tyres and suspension)|
|Cargo bed length||1900mm||1900mm||1900mm||-||2010mm|
