VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT

HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE

The work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque for tough tasks.

Reinforced heavy-duty HSLA steel chassis

BRAWN TO THE BONE

The HD8 and HD10 Defenders can pull at the top of their class with a towing capacity of 2,500-lbs (1,134 kg). A reinforced, automotive-like high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grade steel chassis is purpose-built to handle the strain of heavy-duty jobs. From surviving Defender Challenge test drives to our brutal Utility Test Cycle, it’s clear we’ve built it tough for every situation you’ll face.

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 THAT CAN

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

Parking Brake

HOLD THE LINE

Some jobs require the flexibility of a heavy-duty parking brake fit for the Defender and the work it can do, so we made it standard equipment across all models.

1-Year Warranty

FINISHES STRONG

For 1 year after you take delivery of the Defender side-by-side, we defend its hardworking abilities with a full factory warranty.
