2020 Defender Max

Description

Equipped as standard with the outstanding Rotax HD8 V-Twin engine

THE V-TWIN THAT HAULS

Sure, it's a work-focused 50 horsepower and 50 lb-ft torque for your toughest tasks—but day in, day out, this Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers performance capable of earning your praise when you need it most.

Most rigid Can-Am frame

JOBSITE-READY POWER

The HD8 Defender can pull at the top of their class with a 2,500-lbs (1,134 kg) towing capacity and 1,750 lb (793,8 kg) payload assuring to complete the most difficult tasks with ease.

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

PICKUP 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.

Multifunction cargo box with sturdy tailgate

THE CARGO BOX

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)

27-IN (68.6 CM) MAXXIS† BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES ON 14-IN CAST-ALUMINUM (35.6 CM)

PREMIUM WHEELS AND TIRES

Ready to go when and wherever you are, Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires offer a smooth ride, predictable cornering, and optimum climbing confidence, and are installed on redesigned durable, lightweight cast-aluminum wheels

Brake hold assist for inclines

STEEP DEMANDS

Strong manual parking brake to hold the Defender and its load on inclines or when the driver requires the Defender to remain stationary for added control, security, and peace-of-mind.

A warranty that's got your back

REAL FUTURE TOGETHER

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.
