2020 Defender Max Lone Star

2020 Defender Max Lone Star


LONE STAR trim and badges


Face it: You want to look your best. We get it, which is why the LONE STAR receives upgraded trims, badges, and other niceties throughout to separate it from other Defender models.

Rotax HD10 V-Twin


This is it: at the heart of this Defender is an industry-leading 69 lb-ft of torque and 82 horsepower Rotax HD10 V-Twin specifically tuned to be a hard-working companion in the most demanding conditions that ranchers, farmers, and outdoorsman face every single day.

Heavy-duty suspension


The spec sheet is one thing: reality is another. That's why the Defender HD10 has a revised suspension with front arched double A-Arms and rear arched TTA with sway bar that handles & hauls at higher grounds with confidence—no matter the load.

Durable PRO-TORQ CVT transmission and selectable 4WD


Get in & get working: the PRO-TORQ transmission with Quick Response System (QRS), revised ventilation and electronic belt protection ensure long-lived performance. Selectable Turf Mode / 2WD / 4WD with Visco-Lok† auto-locking front differential allows you put the power down on any terrain. Traditional P / R / N / H / Extra-Low* shift pattern for ease of use.

Brake hold assist for inclines


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.

Dual VERSA-PRO bench seats with unique LONE STAR trims


To face the rigors of ranching, farming, and hunting, engineers crafted these VERSA-PRO bench seats with uprated materials exclusive to the Lone Star Edition. Keeping you comfortably secure, there’s real stretch-out space, with fore/aft adjustability and under-seat storage.

Open dash with removable toolbox and under-dash storage


The Defender has a total of up to 16.9 US gal (63.9 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.

Most rigid Can-Am frame


Leading 2,500-lbs (1,134 kg) towing capacity, 1,750 lb (793,8 kg) payload, and a 4,500-lb (2,041 kg) winch with roller fairlead, assuring to complete the most difficult tasks with ease.

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.

Rock Sliders and Full Hard Roof


Down below, rock sliders protect your ride against the roughest obstacles. Up top, the 2-piece Full Hard Roof gives all occupants in the Defender MAX Lone Star Edition durable protection.

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.
