GET INTO IT
Optimized for mud and changeable conditions, the Defender X mr is the workhorse built dominate off-road. A new rear differential lock combined with snorkeled intakes and the Smart-Lok differential is the perfect recipe to challenge the terrain ahead.
MAGNIFICENT MUD MOVER
Yeah, it roars: the 72-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work, and to be a serious companion in muddy conditions. Why? Torque. With Smart-Lok technology, the engine feels even more responsive thanks to an all-new front differential setup to get the most out of the snorkeled Rotax powerplant.
For next-level traction to conquer the roughest terrain, Can-Am-exclusive Smart-Lok™* technology is the new benchmark. A true full lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically-controlled automatic modes, or with the simple press of a button that offers preset, intelligent calibrations for your type of riding. Using multiple input sources, "Smart mode” will instantaneously engage locking with the right load at the right moment. Never before have riders been given maximum traction while retaining low-speed maneuverability.
*Smart-Lok was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry
THAT SWEET, FRESH AIR
With snorkeled CVT and engine intakes, the Defender X mr gains the ability to perform in deeper water and more extreme conditions where dirt and dust are a concern. An increased intake height also gives better water fording capabilities, allowing this swamp-ready side-by-side vehicle and its determined riders to leave other side-by-sides in its wake.
Want a head start? These 30 in. ITP Cryptid† tires on 14 in. aluminum wheels will hook up all the way from the hole shot to the moment you turn it off, whether for a blast across a mud hole or on a long-distance ride.
DEFENDER WITH STANCE
Fitted with arched arms, aluminum rock sliders, and mudguards, we've given added protection for obstacles and unforseen circumstances that might derail a lesser side-by-side. At speed, its improved geometry returns excellent roadholding and control.
STORAGE WHERE IT COUNTS
The Defender has a total of up to 16.2 US gal (61.3 L)—including a handy, removable and water-resistant 1.7 gal (6.3 L) toolbox, an industry exclusive—to carry tools and supplies directly where they're needed. In addition, we included 6 gal (23 L) of under dash storage with an enclosed pocket, under seat storage, and enclosed storage above the gauges.
PULL IT WITH POWER
Given what we've seen our owners do with their Defenders, this added capability is most welcome when the job gets tough. Matching the rest of the Defender MAX Lone Star Edition upgrades, this 4,500 lb (2,041 kg) winch ensures obstacles, recovery missions, and oversized tasks are tackled with ease.
For a more sporting ride, our engineers quickly learned that bolstering the Defender's capability meant its occupants needed to be more secure than ever, leading to the all-new VERSA-PRO bench seats. With added side padding and a redesigned profile, they'll help you control and enjoy this side-by-side vehicle to the fullest. The VERSA-PRO bench seat also features X package seat trims.
ANALOG/DIGITAL GAUGE WITH ENCLOSED STORAGE
For 1 year after you take delivery of the Defender side-by-side, we defend its hardworking abilities with a full factory warranty.
