ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE: The Defender PRO XT HD10 is powered by the responsive 82hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin engine. 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.

PRO-TORQ TRANSMISSION: Defender side-by-side vehicles come standard with Park, Reverse, Neutral, High and extra Low. A work-specific low gear ensures optimal torque delivery for heavy loads. Integrated electronic hill descent control supplies smooth, predictable deceleration.

THREE DRIVING MODES: The driver can select between three different driving modes: 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.

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 steel chassis with automotive-like technology and tolerances that are in line with modern pick-up trucks. The frame has an integrated steel bumper and bumper plate and offers more rigidity.

13-IN. 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: 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 to provide a smooth ride even in the most demanding terrain. 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.

HEAVY-DUTY X-PACKAGE BUMPER: This package includes a heavy-duty bumper that extends out from the front of the vehicle which protects the vehicle’s front end, headlights, and panels from damage.

FULL HARD ROOF: A durable, heavy-duty plastic roof protects the occupants from the elements.

4,500-LB. 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) 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. It includes many features – Speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip and hour meters, fuel, gear position, Work modes, diagnostics, clock, battery voltage, engine temperature.
