HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX ENGINES: Usable work-ready power
- 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.
BETTER CONTROL: 4-MODE TRACTION SYSTEM
- 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 2×4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2×4 lockable rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4×4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain and a 4×4 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.
PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING: VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT
- 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 on-board storage. Can-Am designers also added a foldable central console and armrest with two cup holders to allow more space in the cab.
ADAPTABLE STORAGE: OPEN DASH WITH REMOVABLE TOOLBOX AND UNDER DASH 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
VERSATILE CARGO BOX: MULTI-FUNCTION CARGO BOX WITH STURDY TAILGATE

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 sizable cargo box, consumers can divide up the box using the integrated recesses.
