Hunters “Can Do” With New Can-Am Defender Series

posted on January 20, 2016

The new Can-Am Defender series of off-road vehicles is tough and capable, is the essence of power performance and versatility, and pulls 2,000 pounds to boot—not bad for an 1,800-pound vehicle!

The series includes the Defender, the Defender DPS, the Defender XT and the Defender XT Cab with proven Rotax engines, Pro-Torq transmission with easy maintenance and what Can-Am touts as best-in-class towing, hauling and payload capacity. These ATVs sport a roomy cockpit and are engineered with smart, functional, adaptable solutions from the cockpit storage to the cargo box. Customize your vehicle with Can-Am accessories including many full-cab enclosure options fitted on the profiled cage, bumpers, mudguards, cargo box wall extenders, flashlights and more!
