Rotax HD10 V-Twin
In the Defender XT-P, the 82-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is still specifically tuned for serious work, but gains more responsive tuning for active, sport-oriented riding. The Defender can do that sort of riding, too, but how? Industry leading 69 lb-ft torque.
New 7.6-inch digital gauge
This year, everything important is right before your eyes on an all-new 7.6-inch illuminated digital dash. The larger digital dashboard houses gauges and all essential functions in a clear, easy-to-read display. This also means a new keypad to ease mode selecting.
Delivering the responsive, thrilling feel of an enthusiast-oriented machine is a Can-Am thing. It's been in our DNA from the beginning, in fact, which is why the XT-P has been re-tuned to return even higher levels of enjoyment when out on the trail.
The spec sheet is one thing: reality is another. The redesigned Arched Double A-Arm front suspension and Arched TTA rear suspension give a full 11-in of travel, better stability, a surefooted response, and improved strength.
VERSA-PRO bench seat with bolster seats
To enjoy a more thrilling ride, our engineers bolstered the adjustable VERSA-PRO bench seats to deliver more support than ever. With added side padding and redesigned profile, they'll help you control and enjoy the XT-P to the limit and back again.
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 include 6 gal (22.8 L) of under-dash storage with an enclosed pocket, under-seat storage, and enclosed storage above the gauges.
The XT-P's heavy duty front bumper demands attention and respect wherever it goes. For added durability, this upgrade gives Defender owners even less reason to fear the unknown.
Full skid plate
There's nothing better for ultimate off-road performance than fitting an ultra-durable full skid plate—so that's what we did. You can thank us later.
Aluminum Rock Sliders
Sliders protect the sides and undercarriage against large obstacles, and the Defender XT-P is rocking a pair of heavy duty aluminum rock sliders and an integrated step for elevated cargo box access.
A warranty that's got your back
When you add it all up, a lower cost of ownership, easier maintenance, and 1-year warranty mean less downtime and more time behind the wheel. The Defender has an easy-to-service design and uses durable Rotax engines for a reason: they can handle the long haul.
