Features

Features

  • ROTAX HD10 V-TWIN: The 72 hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work, and it's been proven a serious companion in muddy conditions. Why? Torque. In 2018, the engine feels even more responsive thanks to an all-new front differential setup that makes this Rotax power plant even more compelling.
  • 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. It provides maximum traction while allowing for low-speed maneuverability. In the Defender X mr, placing it accurately will allow you to conquer any obstacles and keep full momentum to lead you to triumph braap-braap.
  • SNORKELED CVT AND ENGINE INTAKES: With snorkeled CVT and engine intakes, the Defender X mr gains the ability to perform in deeper water and more extreme conditions where dirt and dust are a concern. The increased intake height gives better water fording capabilities, allowing this swamp-ready side-by-side vehicle and its determined riders to leave other side-by-sides in its wake.
  • 30 IN. ITP CRYPTID TIRES ON 14 IN. ALUMINUM WHEELS: Want a head start? These 30 in. ITP Cryptid† tires on 14 in. aluminum wheels will hook up all the way from the hole shot to the moment you turn it off, whether for a blast across a mud hole or on a long-distance ride.
  • FRONT AND REAR ARCHED ARMS: Fitted with arched arms, aluminum rock sliders, and mudguards, we've given added protection for obstacles and unforeseen circumstances that may derail a lesser side-by-side. At speed, its improved geometry returns excellent road holding and control.
  • 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 their need in an organized manner. In addition, it includes 6 gal. (23 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 proposes a total of 16.2 gal. (61.3 l) of storage solutions.
  • 4,500 LB. (2,041 KG) WINCH WITH SYNTHETIC ROPE POSITIONED ON THE FRONT BUMPER: If what we've seen our owners already do with their Defenders, a little added capability is never a bad thing. To match the rest of the Defender X mr's upgrades, this 4,500 lb. (2,041 kg) winch with synthetic rope ensures you'll conquer obstacles, recovery missions, and oversized tasks with ease.
  • VERSA-PRO BENCH SEAT WITH BOLSTER SEATS: For a more recreational ride, our engineers quickly learned that bolstering the Defender's capability meant its occupants needed to be more secure than ever, leading to the all-new VERSA-PRO bench seats. With added side padding and redesigned profile, they'll help you control and enjoy this side-by-side vehicle to the fullest. The VERSA-PRO bench seat also featured X package seat trims.
  • Analog / digital gauge with enclosed storage
