GET COMFORTABLE

*NVH varies based on engine and standard or optional features fitted. Consult your dealer about specific NVH improvements and changes.

DYNAMIC POWER STEERING

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.

Your choice of 82, 50 or 38-horsepower

HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINES

The Defender offers three very capable true-work powerplant options. The 82-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work but also offers industry leading 69 lb-ft torque and peak torque at lower RPM for optimal delivery for recreational use. The work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque for tough tasks. To simply get the job done, meet your new yardstick; the new Defender HD5 single cylinder Rotax engine delivering 38-hp. The Defender is now the sharpest tool in the shed.

Most rigid Can-Am frame

JOBSITE-READY POWER

The HD8 and HD10 Defender can pull at the top of their class with a 2,500-lbs (1,134 kg) towing capacity and 1,500 lb (680 kg) payload assuring to complete the most difficult tasks with ease.

Durable PRO-TORQ CVT transmission and selectable 4WD

4WD THAT GOES THE DISTANCE

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† QE 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. Standard on HD8 and HD10 models.

Heavy-duty rear suspension

SUPPORTING ROLE

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.

VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT

PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING

The VERSA-PRO Bench Seat is engineered as a 40/20/40 bench seat, inspired by modern pick-up trucks. It can comfortably accommodate three adults and features “profiled” corners to improve entrance / exit of the cab as well as a sturdy vinyl cover for improved wear resistance. The passenger seats, complete with integrated hooks on their underside, also can be flipped up to improve onboard storage. Can-Am designers also added a foldable central console and armrest with two cup holders to allow more space in the cab.

Open dash with removable toolbox and under-dash storage

STORAGE WHERE IT COUNTS

The open dash design features a handy removable and water-resistant 1.7 gal (6.3 L) toolbox, an industry exclusive, to allow users to carefully carry tools and supplies their need in an organized manner. In addition, it includes 6 gal (23 L) of under dash storage with an enclosed pocket, perfect for stowing small essentials. All in all, the Defender proposes a total of 10.4 gal. (39.5 L) of storage solutions.

MULTIFUNCTION CARGO BOX WITH STURDY TAILGATE

VERSATILE CARGO BOX

The highly durable Cargo box can go up  to 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).

PROFILED CAGE

CAB-READY

The sturdy Profile cage (steel) is designed in tandem with the Can-Am Cab and genuine accessories to ensure the best fit-and-finish and seamless integration in the industry. To enhance visibility and improve entrance / exit of the cab, the front section of the cage was moved far forward.

LIGHTWEIGHT TIRES AND WHEELS

CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS

14-in (35.6 cm) black cast-aluminium wheels with 27-in (68,6 cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires for HD8 and HD10 models and 12-in (30.5 cm) cast-aluminium wheels with 25-in (63.5 cm) Maxxis tires for HD5 models.

MOSSY OAK BREAK-UP COUNTRY CAMO WATER DIPPED OPTION

EXCLUSIVE CAMO

When it comes to concealment, nothing compares to the exclusive Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camouflage. The highly durable water-dipped camo finish is resistant to scratching, mineral deposits, and sun fading. More importantly, it lets hunters match their favorite camo manufacturer with their favorite side-by-side vehicle brand.

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.
