Description

FOR WHEREVER YOU MAY ROAM

You challenged us, and we delivered the toughest, most capable, and most clever Can-Am ever. It’ll excel at everything you demand of it, with a superior feel that’s immediately noticeable. The Defender pulls out the stops—and hauls them away.

SPECIFIC TO PACKAGE

  • Lockable rear differential and Visco-Lok† auto-locking front differential
  • 12-in. (30.5 cm) steel wheels with 27-in. (68.6 cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0† tyres
  • VERSA-PRO bench seat
  • Central HMW skid plate
  • Multifunction digital gauge
Usable work-ready power

HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX ENGINES

The Defender offers two very capable true-work powerplant options. 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

BRAWN TO THE BONE

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.
 

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.
 

Defender Side-by-Side - Rear suspension - Can-Am

TTA REAR SUSPENSION

(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.
 

VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT

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.

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).
 

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.
