TOUGH, CAPABLE, CLEVER

When we engineered the Can-Am Defender, we pulled out all the stops. We made it tough, capable and clever to excel at everything you demand of it. You'll feel the difference as soon as you sit in and pull away.

VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT

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.

HIGH RIGIDITY CHASSIS

The Defender is an extremely capable off-road vehicle and a legitimate workhorse that uses an all-new, high-precision, laser-cut tongue-and-groove chassis, automotive-like technology and fabrication tolerances that are in line with modern pick-up trucks.  The high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grade steel means a more rigid design for taking the strain of heavy-duty chores. Can-Am engineers put the Defender frame through the new rigorous Utility Test Cycle at the winter and summer testing grounds to ensure its toughness.

4-MODE TRACTION SYSTEM

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-HD REAR SUSPENSION

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

VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT

PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING

The VERSA-PRO bench seat offered on the XT package includes truck-like flip-up passenger seats with sealed/waterproof under seat storage. It uses a reinforced seat cover with thicker vinyl and a special material finish to be more resistant and offer a premium look. The Defender vehicles’ high-quality seat cover is designed to endure the everyday use on the farm, job site and trail. In addition, the XT driver seat features 3-in (8 cm) of adjustability (forward/rearward) for added comfort and better entrance / exit.

OPEN DASH WITH REMOVABLE TOOLBOX AND UNDER DASH STORAGE*

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 organised 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 up to 10.4 gal. (39.5 L) of storage solutions.


*Removable toolbox and under dash storage are available on selected models.

MULTIFUNCTION CARGO BOX WITH STURDY TAILGATE

VERSATILE CARGO BOX

The highly durable Cargo box can go up to 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 optimise 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).

 

PROFILED CAGE

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.
