Features

Features

  • ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE: The Defender PRO package is powered by a powerful 82hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin engine. It is specifically tuned for serious work, but also offers industry-leading 69 lb-ft of torque for optimal delivery for recreational use. The V-Twin engine is located in the far rear of the Defender chassis to reduce noise and vibration, while also eliminating cockpit heat. The location also improves access for you DIYers and regular maintenance checks.
  • INTELLIGENT THROTTLE CONTROL (ITCTM) WITH ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION (EFI): The EFI-fed Defender includes intelligent Throttle Control (iTC), which provides smooth throttle delivery even if the driver’s foot is bouncing in rough terrain.
  • PRO-TORQ TRANSMISSION: The PRO-TORQ Transmission is calibrated to meet the demands of the Defender side-by-side vehicles and includes a Quick Response System (QRS) to enhance low-speed riding, deliver smoother and more responsive power delivery and offers precise engagement. A work-specific low gear ensures optimal torque delivery for heavy loads. At low speeds, optimized ventilation improves belt durability and ensures more efficient powertransfer. Electronic Drive Belt Protection monitors the CVT belt to determine its condition and alerting the driver to be in low gear. Defender side-by-side vehicles come standard with Park, Reverse, Neutral, High and extra Low. Integrated electronic hill descent control supplies smooth, predictable deceleration. The HD10 CVT’s 2020 calibration lowered the shift line by 500 rpm and also reduced the vehicle’s sound output under heavy acceleration.
  • THREE DRIVING MODES: The driver can select between three different driving modes on the Can-Am Defender to adapt to both personal preference and the riding conditions: ECO, Normal and Work. Normal mode has no speed or torque limitations and is optimized for recreational use with no load or a light workload. Work mode is calibrated for working with high loads in a gentle manner, offering a smooth power delivery, still with full power andtorque. Revised for 2020, ECO mode limits both high-range speed and torque to produce moderate driving. The ECO mode now offers less cockpit noise and vibration and optimizing engine smoothness.
  • DYNAMIC POWER STEERING: Standard on all DPS-equipped vehicles, the refined second-generation DPS system is tuned for utility applications while also offering responsiveness for recreational usage. DPS improves steering feel in slow-speed working situations and in more technical terrain. It also is designed to offer less assistance at high speed and more assistance at low speed.
  • AUTO-LOCKING VISCO-LOK QE FRONT DIFFERENTIAL: The Visco-Lok QE system features quick engagement calibration to supply an even quicker interaction fromthe front differential, which can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter.
  • THICK FIREWALL: All Can-Am Defender vehicles have a thick firewall to produce a sound and heat barrier between the occupant and engine components.
  • HIGH RIGIDITY CHASSIS: The Defender PRO HD10 excels off-road and is a legitimate workhorse that uses a Dual-Phase steel chassis with automotive-like technology and fabrication tolerances that are in line with modern pick-up trucks. The frame has an integrated steel bumper and bumper plate and offers more rigidity. The Dual-Phase (DP) grade steel means a more rigid design for taking the strain of heavy-duty chores.
  • FRONT BUMPER: The integrated central front steel bumper offers protection for the front end and is minimalistic in its appearance.
  • HMWPE CENTRAL SKID PLATE: A HMWPE central skid plate lines the underside on the Defender vehicles to protect your vehicle from the asperity of the ground.
  • ARCHED DOUBLE A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION (11-IN. / 27.9 CM TRAVEL): The Defender vehicles have an arched double A-arm front suspension system with twin tube gas charged shocks. The system is designed to offer predictable handling and control even in difficult terrain. With 11-in. of travel, the ride is smooth in all situations, even when carrying heavy loads.
  • ARCHED TTA REAR SUSPENSION WITH EXTERNAL SWAY BAR AND TWIN TUBE GAS CHARGED SHOCKS: The Arched Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) rear suspension, which was designed specifically for a utility and recreational usage, offers a full 11-in. of travel and features and extra rear axle. Its architecture offers optimal comfort and drivability in all conditions, thanks to no camber change, and provides extra clearance near the wheel. The Defender vehicle’s TTA wears more bushings than some competitive units and is alsolarger and greaseable on both the chassis and knuckle, resulting in a more durable setup. In addition, the TTA features a wear plate between the suspension and the chassis, preventing direct friction between those two. This all translates to a more controlled wheel movement when driving, and an increased longevity.
  • 28-IN. MAXXIS BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES: Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires feature a rugged radial construction and are lightweight to cut down on unsprung weight. The 28-in. (71.1 cm) tires are very capable of climbing and clawing across tough terrain and also absorb varying surfaces for a smooth ride and predictable cornering.
  • 14-IN. (35.6 CM) BLACK CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS: Sturdy, lightweight, 14-in. cast-aluminum wheels with a unique painted black finish come standard.
  • 115.5-IN. (293.3 CM) WHEELBASE: The 2020 Defender PRO HD10, built on the Defender MAX chassis, has a longer wheelbase over the standard Defender.
  • 13-IN. OF GROUND CLEARANCE: The ground clearance of the Defender PRO HD10 is also 13-in., making it even more capable off-road.
  • 650-W MAGNETO: This package provides an extremely powerful magneto, a 650-W output, for handling high-powered lightingor other key accessories.
  • 94-GAL. ONBOARD STORAGE: The Defender PRO HD10 offers a total of 94-Gal. (356 L) of onboard storage in the form of resourceful stowage locations under the carbo box, beneath the dash, in the dash, in a waterproof-and-removable box below the passenger seat, from a water-resistant and removable toolbox, two cupholders and also two armrests.
  • 2,500-LBS. TOWING CAPACITY: Fully equipped to move a load, the Defender PRO HD10 has a 2-in. (5 cm) receiver hitch and a class-leading 2,500-lbs. (1,134kg) towing capacity that comes standard.
  • 140-W HEADLIGHTS: 140-W lighting output from four 35-W reflectors ensuring a wide visibility.
  • 4.5-IN. DIGITAL DISPLAY: The digital display allows for first-glance information and premium look. It includes many features (Speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip and hour meters, fuel, gear position, ECO / ECO Off / Work modes, seat belt, diagnostics, clock, battery voltage, engine temperature).
  • LARGE 10.6-GAL. (40 L) FUEL TANK: The Defender PRO HD10 has a huge 10.6-Gal. (40 L) fuel tank.
  • STYLISH DESIGN: The Defender family of side-by-side vehicles have a restyled fascia and hood for 2020. The front grille is also removable.
  • COLORS AVAILABLE: The Defender PRO HD10 is available in White and also Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo.
