    Thanks, TB.

    I've sent an email to JLR (Australia) seeking clarification.

    Silence might be the reply but we shall see.

    I have been advised by a Land Rover sales consultant after a few emails and a phone conversation that the AWD system as described in the iGuide applies to all 2022 Defenders regardless of whether the engine is petrol or diesel.

    How much do you trust the sales consultant? That directly contradicts information on the Australian web site where 6-cyl diesels are excluded from the “Permanent All-Wheel-Drive” claim via fine print, and on the US site which doesn’t have diesels and simply says “Permanent All-Wheel-Drive” without any disclaimers.

    What a balls-up.

    TB,

    Whether I trust LR Sales consultants or not is irrelevant.

    I'm reporting back what I've managed to find out as I undertook to do.

    As I said before: caveat emptor. That still stands.

    Until someone bothers to find out more this is where this issue stands.

    At the end of the day, when you select an off-road mode it’ll more than likely lock the centre haldex clutch providing 50:50 and then use the traction system to maintain forward momentum, so when it matters it’ll work just fine.

    The South African LR site makes no distinction between diesel and petrol. And does not use the term "permanent" before AWD.

    It's worth commenting that the difference between various sites (theirs and ours) is significant. One possibility is that the responsibility for each site has been left to local production. This is risky from an editorial point of view. Things can change at a higher level without that being translated to the individual sites.
