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.
HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE
The work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque for tough tasks.
HIGH RIGIDITY CHASSIS
The Defender is an extremely capable off-road vehicle and a legitimate workhorse that uses a chassis with 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.
TTA-HD REAR SUSPENSION
The Defender MAX heavy-duty Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA-HD) 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 Dual VERSA-PRO bench seat is engineered as a 40/20/40 bench seat, inspired by modern pick-up trucks. The Defender MAX can comfortably accommodate six adults and features “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 underside and can also be flipped up to improve onboard storage. Can-Am designers also added front and rear foldable armrests with cup holders.
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).
PREMIUM WHEELS AND TIRES
The Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires offer a smoother ride, predictable cornering and optimum climbing confidence. Installed on redesigned 14-in. cast-aluminum wheels featuring a strong lightweight construction.
