Features

CONTROL AT YOUR COMMAND

Comfortable Dynamic Power Steering turns the Defender DPS into a workhorse that makes your job even easier. Take those lightweight wheels and tires, adaptable storage, and Visco Lok QE 4WD, and get it done.

HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX ENGINES

The Defender offers three very capable true-work powerplant options. The 72-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work but also offers 61 lb-ft torque and peak torque at lower RPM for optimal delivery for recreational use. The work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque for tough tasks. To simply get the job done, meet your new yardstick; the new Defender HD5 single cylinder Rotax engine delivering 38-hp. The Defender is now the sharpest tool in the shed.

REINFORCED HEAVY-DUTY HSLA STEEL CHASSIS

The HD8 and HD10 Defenders can pull at the top of their class with a towing capacity of 2,500-lbs (1,134 kg). A reinforced, automotive-like high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grade steel chassis is purpose-built to handle the strain of heavy-duty jobs. From surviving Defender Challenge test drives to our brutal Utility Test Cycle, it’s clear we’ve built it tough for every situation you’ll face.

DYNAMIC POWER STEERING

Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) is tuned for utility while returning renowned Can-Am responsiveness for recreational riding. DPS improves steering feel in slow-speed working situations and in more technical terrain. It's also designed to offer less assistance at high speeds and more assistance at low speeds.

BETTER CONTROL

The Visco-Lok† front differential combined with the lockable rear differential* offer a 4-mode traction system providing multiple choices for varying terrain or tasks.  Users, via a separate front-and-rear toggle switches, can select between a 2x4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2x4 lockable rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4x4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain and a 4x4 locked rear for maximum traction. The rear differential is gear-on-gear to the transmission for better response, no maintenance, better efficiency and fewer components.

*Lockable rear differential is available on selected models

TTA REAR SUSPENSION

The Defender heavy-duty Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) was designed specifically for a utility and recreational usage, offers a full 10-in. (25.4 cm) of travel to provide a smooth ride whatever the terrain. Its architecture offers an optimal comfort and drivability in all conditions thanks to no camber.

PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING

The VERSA-PRO Bench Seat is engineered as a 40/20/40 bench seat, inspired by modern pick-up trucks. It can comfortably accommodate three adults and features “profiled” corners to improve entrance / exit of the cab as well as a sturdy vinyl cover for improved wear resistance. The passenger seats, complete with integrated hooks on their underside, also can be flipped up to improve onboard storage. Can-Am designers also added a foldable central console and armrest with two cup holders to allow more space in the cab.

ADAPTABLE STORAGE

The open dash design features a handy removable and water-resistant 1.7 gal (6.3 L) toolbox, an industry exclusive, to allow users to carefully carry tools and supplies their need in an organized manner. In addition, it includes 6 gal (23 L) of under dash storage with an enclosed pocket, perfect for stowing small essentials. All in all, the Defender proposes a total of 10.4 gal. (39.5 L) of storage solutions.

VERSATILE CARGO BOX

The highly durable Cargo box has a 1,000-lb (454kg) load capacity and easily dumps. Strategic features include 5-gal (18.9 l) pail recesses, integrated anchors on the sidewalls and several tie-down points for added convenience. To fully optimize the sizeable cargo box, consumers can divide up the box using the integrated recesses. The box allows for both 1x3 and plywood separators and accepts bed extenders for refining the bed’s overall dimensions. Also, the sturdy tailgate can withstand ordinary farm use and serve as a seat during your lunch break (max weight: 250 lb / 113kg).

CAB-READY

The sturdy Profile cage (steel) is designed in tandem with the Can-Am Cab and genuine accessories to ensure the best fit-and-finish and seamless integration in the industry. To enhance visibility and improve entrance / exit of the cab, the front section of the cage was moved far forward.

CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS

14-in (35.6 cm) black cast-aluminium wheels with 27-in (68,6 cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires for HD8 and HD10 models and 12-in (30.5 cm) cast-aluminium wheels with 25-in (63.5 cm) Maxxis tires for HD5 models.

EXCLUSIVE CAMO

When it comes to concealment, nothing compares to the exclusive Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camouflage. The highly durable water-dipped camo finish is more resistant to scratching, mineral deposits and sun fading. More importantly, it lets hunters match their favorite camo manufacturer with their favorite ATV brand.

WARRANTY

For 1 year after you take delivery of the Defender side-by-side, we defend its hardworking abilities with a full factory warranty.
