Features

Features

  • ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE: The 976cc 82hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work but also offers the industry’s top torque (69 lb-ft) and peak torque at lower RPM for optimal delivery for recreational use. The V-Twin engines are located in the rear of the Defender chassis to reduce noise, vibration and cockpit heat as well as improved access.
  • INTELLIGENT THROTTLE CONTROL (ITC™) WITH ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION (EFI): The EFI-fed Defender Limited packages include 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 power transfer. 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.
  • DYNAMIC POWER STEERING: The 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.
  • TRUE 4-MODE TRACTION SYSTEM WITH TURF MODE AND FRONT AUTO-LOCKING VISCO-LOK QE: The Defender side-by-side vehicle offers a 4-mode traction system with choices for varying terrain and tasks. Users, via 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.
  • 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 and torque. ECO mode, which was revised for 2020 to create even smoother operation, limits both high-range speed and torque to produce moderate driving with regulated-but-smooth acceleration.
  • THICKER FIREWALL: All 2020 Can-Am Defender vehicles now have a thicker firewall to produce a sound and heat barrier between the occupant and engine components.
  • HIGH RIGIDITY CHASSIS: The Defender is extremely capable off-road and a legitimate workhorse that uses revised Dual-Phase steel chassis with automotive-like technology and fabrication tolerances that are in line with modern pick-up trucks. The new frame, which features a new integrated steel bumper and bumper plate, offers 30% more rigidity and weighs 5-lbs. less than the previous generation. The Dual-Phase grade steel means a more rigid design for taking the strain of heavy-duty chores.
  • 850-W MAGNETO: This package provides an extremely powerful magneto, an 850-W output, for handling high-powered lighting or other key accessories.
  • ARCHED DOUBLE A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION WITH SWAY BAR AND TUBE GAS CHARGED SHOCKS. (10-IN. / 25.4 CM TRAVEL): The Defender Limited HD10 has a front, arched double A-arm suspension system designed to offer an enhanced stance, more control and improve handling by adding ride clearance when navigating muddy terrain and rugged trails. With 10-in. of travel, the ride is smooth in all situations, even when carrying heavy loads. Larger-bore shocks also enhance overall durability.
  • TTA REAR SUSPENSION WITH ARCHED ARMS, EXTERNAL SWAY BAR AND TWIN TUBE GAS CHARGED SHOCKS (10-IN. / 25.4 CM TRAVEL): The arched Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) rear suspension, which was designed specifically for a utility and recreational usage, offers a full 10-in. of travel to provide a smooth ride even in the most demanding terrain. Its architecture offers optimal comfort, ride clearance and drivability in all conditions, thanks to no camber change. The Defender vehicle’s TTA wears more bushings than some competitive units and is also larger 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. The system also includes a larger shock bore for better durability.
  • 12-IN. OF GROUND CLEARANCE: The ground clearance of the Defender Limited HD10 is 12-in. (30.5 cm), offering excellent maneuverability in challenging terrain.
  • 27-IN. MAXXIS BIGHORN 2.0 TIRES: Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires feature a rugged six-ply radial construction and are lightweight to cut down on unsprung weight. The 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. CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS: 14-in. (35.6 cm) cast-aluminum wheels give the Defender Limited HD10 vehicle a refined look. The lighter weight wheels are durable for the demanding mud and have an attractive machined design to complete the vehicle’s awesome look.
  • FULL SKID PLATE: An HMWPE full skid plate lines the underside on the Defender vehicles to protect your vehicle from the asperity of the ground.
  • BRAKE HOLDING MECHANISM: A foot-operated brake holding mechanism improves operation during work, letting owners engage the brake holding mechanism, which then facilitates transmission engagement.
  • FOUR 220 MM DISC BRAKES WITH HYDRAULIC PISTON CALIPERS: The Defender side-by-side vehicle uses twin piston calipers with two 220 mm discs up front and two 220 mm discs with a single piston caliper at the rear for superior stopping force when pulling heavy loads.
  • 140-W LIGHTING OUTPUT AND LED TAIL LIGHTS: For a superb wide-visibility, two 35-W reflectors on each side run at 70-W on high beam to provide more than enough candlepower for early-morning scouting trips, trail rides or late-night farm chores. LED Taillights enhance visibility in all conditions and add to the unmatched fit-and-finish
  • OPTIMAL WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION: The 47 / 53 weight distribution ensures a strong footing whatever the nature of the ride or the landscape.
  • HVAC SYSTEM: The factory-installed, integrated HVAC system keeps occupants warm even on the coldest morning and cool and comfortable on the hottest summer day. For climate control, you can select from three different modes: Heat, air conditioning and industry-exclusive automatic mode. Auto allows for temperature regulation, without manual adjustments, by operating the heater, A/C and airflow jointly modulating power output once a desired temperature is reached. A variable compressor allows more cooling capacity at idle, improves fuel efficiency and also decreases hp loss when A/C is not needed. HVAC and more perfectly sealed cabin ensure a dust-free environment to enhance air quality. Relocated air vents provide maximum cooling and heating efficiency. Eight vents (4 front, 2 lower feet and 2 front window) ensure proper airflow. The system also re-circulates air, automatically introducing fresh air, to maintain ambient air temperature and minimize humidity. Similar to automotive designs, an easy-access cabin air filter can be replaced.
  • FULL HARD ROOF WITH LINER AND DOME LIGHT: A durable, heavy-duty plastic roof with an integrated liner protects the occupants from elements while giving the Defender units a custom appearance and unbeatable fit-and-finish.
