KEY FEATURES

REDEFINING TOUGH

REDEFINING TOUGH

Rotax® heavy-duty engines are ready for whatever you can throw at them. Not only with superior torque power over that of Defender’s closest rivals, but by also redefining 'tough' in gentler terms. You get a more comfortable ride with Rotax HD's low vibration and rear placement. And with their lower maintenance needs, you get all the reliable power you need, plus cost-efficiency you can really appreciate.

WHEN CAPABLE REALLY COUNTS

WHEN CAPABLE REALLY COUNTS

More thought has gone into how you'll use your Defender than has gone into any utility vehicle we've ever built. Which is why it’s a more capable and versatile carrier than any in its class Defender's cargo box offers infinite flexibility for configuring to your working or sporting needs, thanks in part to its built-in LinQ quick-attach system and other integrated recesses. Load it up to 1,000 lb (454 kg), then hitch up another 2,000 lb (907 kg) and you’re still good to go, even with a passenger or six.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

WHERE CLEVER REALLY SHOWS

Intelligent design is everywhere on the Can-Am Defender. But uncommon innovation—like the more forward pillar placement for easier cockpit access, flip-up seats revealing more storage, or full, hard or soft closed cab options—just takes ‘clever’ to a whole new level.
