2019 Can-Am Defender MAX XT HD8
Equipped with choice factory-installed accessories like 27 in (68.6 cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires, 14 in. (35.6 cm) cast-aluminum wheels, and Dynamic Power Steering (DPS), the Defender MAX XT is ready when you are—with room for 6.
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.
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.
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.
ROTAX AT YOUR COMMAND
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.
SERIOUSLY VERSATILE SEATS
The XT package VERSA-PRO bench seat includes a reinforced seat cover with thicker vinyl and a special material finish to be both more durable and attractive. The Defender vehicles’ high-quality seat cover is designed to endure the everyday use on the farm, job site and trail. It's also adjustabile, with a 3-in (8 cm) adjustable driver’s seat (forward/rearward) for added comfort and better ingress/egress.
STORAGE WHERE IT COUNTS
The Defender has a total of up to 14 US gal (53 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 1.6 gal (6.1 L) of under-dash storage with an enclosed pocket, under-seat storage, and enclosed storage above the gauges.
Our durable steel cage gives enhanced visibility and improved entrance/exit of the cab with a cage that stretches far forward. Designed to accept a variety of Can-Am accessories, the integrated cage can be outfitted with cabs both hard and soft, plus a number of door and windshield options. This is all with the best fit-and-finish and most seamless installation in the industry.
