Your choice of 72 or 50 horsepower

HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINES

Defender MAX XT was engineered with your choice of two very capable true-work powerplant options: a powerful 72-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin tuned for serious work and a serious 61 lb-ft of torque at lower RPMs for true stump-pulling power. The versatile, economical, and work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque still rated to tackle tough tasks.
 

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.
 

Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)

STEERING YOU RIGHT

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.
 

4-mode traction system

GROUNDED POWER

Visco-Lok† QE front differential combines a lockable rear differential and a 4-mode traction system for multiple choices depending on terrain or task. With separate front and rear toggle switches, drivers can select between a 2x4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2x4 locked rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4x4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain, and a 4x4 locked rear differential for maximum traction. The rear differential is gear-on-gear to the transmission for better response, no maintenance, better efficiency, and fewer components.
 

Heavy-Duty rear suspension

TTA REAR SUSPENSION

Designed to handle both utility and recreational usage, the Defender MAX is equipped with a heavy-duty Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) suspension that returns a full 10-in. (25.4 cm) of travel for a smooth ride—no matter the terrain. Its architecture offers an optimal comfort and drivability in all conditions thanks to a design that minimizes camber change to maximize grip.
 

Advanced VERSA-PRO bench seats

PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING

Inspired by modern trucks, the dual VERSA-PRO bench seat is engineered as a practical 40/20/40 bench that can comfortably accommodate six adults with features like profiled corners to improve entrance/exit of the cab as well as a sturdy vinyl cover for improved wear resistance. The five passenger seats have integrated hooks on their undersides and can also be flipped up to improve onboard storage. Can-Am designers also added front and rear foldable armrests with cup holders—you're welcome.
 

Open dash with removable toolbox and under-dash storage

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.
 

Multifunction cargo box with sturdy tailgate

THE CARGO BOX THAT CAN

Can-Am is rightfully proud of the Defender's highly durable dump cargo box with a stout 1,000 lb (454kg) load capacity. Strategic features include 5-gal (18.9 L) pail recesses, integrated anchors on the sidewalls, and several tie-down points for added convenience. Integrated recesses allow you to use the space as needed, allowing for both 1x3 and plywood separators and bed extenders to extend the bed’s overall dimensions. The tailgate is even capable of withstanding ordinary farm use and serving as a seat on breaks (max weight: 250 lb/113kg)
