TAKE IT ON, BRING IT ALONG
Comfortable Dynamic Power Steering turns the Defender MAX DPS into a workhorse that makes your job even easier. Take those lightweight wheels and tires, adaptable storage, Visco Lok QE 4WD—and get it done.
Features may include:
Your choice of 72 or 50 horsepower
HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINES
Defender MAX XT was engineered with your choice of two very capable true-work powerplant options: a powerful 72-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin tuned for serious work and a serious 61 lb-ft of torque at lower RPMs for true stump-pulling power. The versatile, economical, and work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque still rated to tackle tough tasks.
Heavy-duty HSLA steel chassis
A CHASSIS TO COUNT ON
It starts at the structure: Defender is an extremely capable off-road vehicle and a legitimate workhorse because of its automotive-like technology and fabrication tolerances that are in line with modern pickup trucks. The high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grade steel means a more rigid design designed to handle the strain of heavy-duty jobs. Can-Am engineers put the Defender frame through the new rigorous Utility Test Cycle its winter and summer testing grounds to ensure its toughness—and it shows.
Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
STEERING YOU RIGHT
Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) is tuned for utility while returning renowned Can-Am responsiveness for recreational riding. DPS improves steering feel in slow-speed working situations and in more technical terrain. It's also designed to offer less assistance at high speeds and more assistance at low speeds.
4-mode traction system
Visco-Lok† QE front differential combines a lockable rear differential and a 4-mode traction system for multiple choices depending on terrain or task. With separate front and rear toggle switches, drivers can select between a 2x4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2x4 locked rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4x4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain, and a 4x4 locked rear differential for maximum traction. The rear differential is gear-on-gear to the transmission for better response, no maintenance, better efficiency, and fewer components.
Heavy-Duty rear suspension
TTA REAR SUSPENSION
Designed to handle both utility and recreational usage, the Defender MAX is equipped with a heavy-duty Torsional Trailing A-arms (TTA) suspension that returns a full 10-in. (25.4 cm) of travel for a smooth ride—no matter the terrain. Its architecture offers an optimal comfort and drivability in all conditions thanks to a design that minimizes camber change to maximize grip.
Advanced VERSA-PRO bench seats
PICK-UP INSPIRED SEATING
Inspired by modern trucks, the dual VERSA-PRO bench seat is engineered as a practical 40/20/40 bench that can comfortably accommodate six adults with features like profiled corners to improve entrance/exit of the cab as well as a sturdy vinyl cover for improved wear resistance. The five passenger seats have integrated hooks on their undersides and can also be flipped up to improve onboard storage. Can-Am designers also added front and rear foldable armrests with cup holders—you're welcome.
Open dash with removable toolbox and under-dash storage
STORAGE WHERE IT COUNTS
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 included 6 gal (23 L) of under-dash storage with an enclosed pocket, under-seat storage, and enclosed storage above the gauges.
