Features

Features

  • ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE: The Defender PRO XT HD10 is powered by the responsive 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 rear of the long Defender PRO chassis to reduce noise, cockpit heat, improve access and reduce vibration.
  • 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 torquelimitations 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.
  • 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.
  • 13-IN. (33 CM) OF GROUND CLEARANCE: The ground clearance of the Defender PRO is 13-in., making it an even more capable off-road.
  • ARCHED TTA REAR SUSPENSION WITH EXTERNAL SWAY BAR AND TWIN TUBE GAS CHARGED SHOCKS (11-IN. / 27.9 CM TRAVEL): The arched Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) rear suspension, which was designed specifically for a utilityand recreational usage, offers a full 11-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 thosetwo. 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 six-ply 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 terrainand also absorb varying surfaces for a smooth ride and predictable cornering.
  • REAR DIFFERENTIAL WITH TURF MODE: A rear differential with turf mode provides maximum traction and turf protection capabilities.
  • 14-IN. CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS: Black, 14-in. (35.6 cm) cast-aluminum wheels are part of the XT package.
  • HEAVY-DUTY X-PACKAGE BUMPER: This package includes a heavy-duty bumper that extends out from the front of the vehicle. It adds a stylishpainted finish as well as protects the vehicle’s front end, headlights and panels from damage.
  • OPEN DASH WITH REMOVABLE TOOLBOX AND UNDER DASH STORAGE ADAPTABLE STORAGE: The open dash design features a handy removable and water-resistant 1.7-Gal. (6.3 L) toolbox, an industry-exclusive, to allow users to carefully carry tools and supplies they need in an organized manner. In addition, it includes 6-Gal. (22.8 L) of under dash storage with an enclosed pocket, perfect for stowing small essentials. Combined with the removable and waterproof under seat storage box, the Defender PRO XT side-by-side vehicle features a total of 16.9-Gal. (63.9 L) of storage solutions.
  • ADVANCED VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT: The Defender PRO XT HD 10 vehicle has the 40/20/40 bolstered VERSA-PRO XT Bench Seat, which was inspired by modern pick-up trucks. The bolstering adds additional lateral and side support for both the driver and right-hand passenger seats. 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 onboard storage. Can-Am engineers also added a foldable central console and armrest with two cup holders to allow more space in the cab.
  • FULL HARD ROOF: A durable, heavy-duty plastic roof protects the occupants from elements while giving the Defender PRO XT vehicle a custom appearance and unbeatable fit-and-finish.
  • 4,500-LBS. (2,041 KG) WINCH: The winch is designed to handle heavy-duty loads at the worksite and on the trail, thanks to its 4,500-lbs. (2,041 kg) capacity and roller fairlead. A convenient button was also added to the console on the left side of the steering wheel for easy operation.
  • FULL HEAVY-DUTY SKID PLATE: The high-strength full HMWPE skid plate (center and sides) is made from proven materials and is designed for supreme protection and has the ability to slide over certain obstacles.
  • 4.5-IN. DIGITAL DISPLAY: The new 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).
  • 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.
  • STYLISH DESIGN: The front fascia and hood were redesigned on the entire Defender side-by-side vehicle family to improve its appearance. The front grille is also removable.
  • COLOR AVAILABLE: The Defender PRO XT HD10 now offered in Timeless Black coloration.
