CAN-AM DEFENDER

PERFORMANCE WITH PURPOSE

TOUGH

STRENGTH FOR WORK

The Defender’s job-ready powertrain is the backbone of this workhorse, with the engine, transmission, and all components paired for hassle-free performance.

LEGENDARY ROTAX ENGINE

HEAVY-DUTY PERFORMANCE

Leveraging years of experiences in powersports and small aircraft engine development, Can-Am introduces the new Rotax® HD8 and HD10 V-Twin engine options. We took our well-recognized Rotax V-Twin engine and recalibrated it for Heavy-Duty performance. Whether you’re work-focused or trail riding, the 50 horsepower HD8 and 72 HP HD10 engines offer proven power you can rely on.

RUGGED FOR A REASON

CAPABLE

Engineered to never leave you wanting for more, Defender is the side-by-side vehicle proven to get things done—now.

TURN WITH EASE

PRECISELY POSITIONED

Engineered for tight trails & narrow working areas, the Defenders' best-in-class tight turning radius takes you around and out without much effort, especially when fitted with available dynamic power steering (DPS). Below, 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires respond with agility and a solid grip. 

CLEVER

DETAILS TO WIN THE DAY

Tens of thousands of owners around the world use the Defender for jobs large and small—and so do we. This experience has shown us that outright performance is nothing if it’s not adaptable to your needs: this is just some of what the Defender it can do. 

READY FOR WORK

A BED TO CALL YOUR OWN

Truth is, we can only get you to the job site, the hunt, or the miracle you’ve been asked to perform—but once you’re there, be confident that the Defender’s bed and several different configurations can take on anything.

HOME ON THE RANGE

Comfort and function never looked so good together. From its pushed-forward front roll cage to aid in entry and exit, the Defender is loaded with details to ease the burden of rough terrain and tough tasks.
