SPECIAL VEHICLES: Large Jeeps and Super Jeeps
Book here - Viking Car Rental - Iceland
Rent a large jeep or a Super Jeep
Available are a large number of Land Rover Defenders, both Land Rover Defender 110 and Land Rover Defender 130.
The Land Rover Defender 110, has the new and efficient four cylinder 2,4 liter EURO 4 Diesel engine, and the newly designed 6 gear manual transmission.
You can also book the unmodified Defender 110 Td4, equipped with a snorkel. They are good for normal roads in winter, and can tackle all the major highland roads in summer, although the roughest tracks are best left to big brother Super Defender.
Another one is the 'Super Defenders', with larger 38-inch tires for increased flotation – ideal for driving on snow and glaciers, as well as tackling the tough Icelandic highland trails. The gear ratio of the axle differentials has been converted for compensation of the bigger tires, resulting in moderate fuel consumption despite these changes, or 12 – 15 litres per 100 kms in general.
Furthermore, all the vehicles are equipped with an engine mounted air compressor, to adjust the tyre pressure for different terrains; a VHF long-range radio intercommunication with private channels; and a snorkel to reduce the likelihood of water reaching the combustion chambers of the engine. Each vehicle is also equipped with a special front bumper for ice, with latches for Hi Lifts, and with spot lights. Common gear for possible problems, like a rope, a shovel, plugs for repairing punctures and normal tools are provided in each car. On request, customers can rent extra fuel cans on a special mounting, and a roof rack for luggage.
Note: A credit card security deposit will required on pick up.
