VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT

Usable work-ready power

HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX ENGINES

The Defender offers two very capable true-work powerplant options. 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.

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.

4-MODE TRACTION SYSTEM

BETTER CONTROL

The Visco-Lok† front differential combined with the lockable rear differential* offer a 4-mode traction system providing multiple choices for varying terrain or tasks.  Users, via a separate front-and-rear toggle switches, can select between a 2x4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2x4 lockable rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4x4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain and a 4x4 locked rear for maximum traction. The rear differential is gear-on-gear to the transmission for better response, no maintenance, better efficiency and fewer components.

*Lockable rear differential is available on selected models.

TTA REAR SUSPENSION

The Defender heavy-duty Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) was designed specifically for a utility and recreational usage, offers a full 10-in. (25.4 cm) of travel to provide a smooth ride whatever the terrain. Its architecture offers an optimal comfort and drivability in all conditions thanks to no camber.

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*

ADAPTABLE STORAGE

It includes 0.4 gal (1.3 L) of under dash storage with an enclosed pocket, perfect for stowing small essentials. All in all, the Defender proposes a total of up to 3.1 gal. (11.7 L) of storage solutions.


*Removable toolbox and under dash storage are available on selected models.

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.

MAXXIS TIRES ON 12-IN (30.5 CM) WHEELS

READY TO TACKLE THE TOUGHEST TERRAIN

12-in (30.5 cm) steel wheels with Maxxis tires. The HD8 model feature the 27-in (68.6 cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires

1-Year Warranty
