Features

Features

  • ROTAX HD10 V-TWIN: In the Defender XT-P, the 72-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is still specifically tuned for serious work, but gains more responsive tuning for active, sport-oriented riding. The Defender can do that sort of riding, too, but how? Torque.
  • LOCKABLE FRONT DIFFERENTIAL: For next-level traction to conquer the roughest terrain, Can-Am-exclusive Smart-Lok™* technology is the new benchmark. A true full lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically-controlled automatic modes, or with the simple press of a button that offers preset, intelligent calibrations for your type of riding. Using multiple input sources, "Smart mode” will instantaneously engage locking with the right load at the right moment. Never before have riders been given maximum traction while retaining low-speed maneuverability.*Smart-Lok was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry.
  • REINFORCED HEAVY-DUTY HSLA STEEL CHASSIS: 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.
  • RESPONSIVE HANDLING: Delivering the responsive, thrilling feel of an enthusiast-oriented machine is a Can-Am thing. It's been in our DNA from the beginning, in fact, which is why the XT-P has been re-tuned to return even higher levels of enjoyment when out on the trail.
  • WORK/ ECO/ NORMAL DRIVING MODES: With the power of the Rotax HD10 at your back and Visco-Lok 4WD underfoot, there's different ways to use all of it: Work, ECO, and Normal driving modes maximize response depending on the situation. Work mode gives full power and prioritizes low-down control and response, key for towing, hauling, and maneuvering with ease; ECO helps to save fuel and remain easy on terrain.
  • FOX PODIUM 2.0 SHOCKS: FOX Racing makes the ultimate in off-road suspension, and for the first time, we've fitted FOX PODIUM 2.0 shocks to the Defender. With 12 inches (30.5 cm) of ground clearance and increased responsiveness and durability in rough terrain, they're a serious upgrade for our work-grade side-by-side vehicle.
  • VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT WITH BOLSTER SEATS: To enjoy a more thrilling ride, our engineers bolstered the adjustable VERSA-PRO bench seats to deliver more support than ever. With added side padding and redesigned profile, they'll help you control and enjoy the XT-P to the limit and back again.
  • ADAPTABLE STORAGE: The Defender has a total of up to 16.2 US gal (61.3 L)—including a handy, removable and water-resistant 1.7 gal (6.3 L) toolbox, an industry exclusive—to carry tools and supplies directly where they're needed. In addition, we include 6 gal (22.8 L) of under-dash storage with an enclosed pocket, under-seat storage, and enclosed storage above the gauges.
  • MULTIFICATION CARGO BOX WITH STURDY TAILGATE: Can-Am is rightfully proud of the Defender's highly durable dump cargo box with a stout 600-lb (272.2 kg) load capacity. Strategic features include 5-gal (18.9 L) pail recesses, integrated anchors on the sidewalls, and several tie-down points for added convenience. Integrated recesses allow you to use the space as needed, allowing for both 1x3 and plywood separators and bed extenders to extend the bed’s overall dimensions. The tailgate is even capable of withstanding ordinary farm use and serving as a seat on breaks (max weight: 250 lb / 113kg)
  • FRONT BUMPER: The XT-P's heavy duty front bumper demands attention and respect wherever it goes. For added durability, this upgrade gives Defender owners even less reason to fear the unknown.
  • FULL SKID PLATE: There's nothing better for ultimate off-road performance than fitting an ultra-durable full skid plate—so that's what we did. You can thank us later.
  • ALUMINUM ROCK SLINDERS: Sliders protect the sides and undercarriage against large obstacles, and the Defender XT-P is rocking a pair of heavy duty aluminum rock sliders and an integrated step for elevated cargo box access.
  • 1-YEAR WARRANTY: For 1 year after you take delivery of the Defender side-by-side, we defend its hardworking abilities with a full factory warranty.
