CAN-AM INTRODUCES SIX-PASSENGER 2017 DEFENDER MAX UTVs
Can-Am recently expanded its line of Can-Am Defender
utility-recreational side-by-side vehicles with the addition of
the 2017 Can-Am Defender Max family, offered with 800cc
and 1000cc engines in Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
and XT trim levels. XT models come with power steering,
painted bodywork, larger tires, and wheels and interior
upgrades. The vehicles’ pickup-truck-inspired design offers
extensive capability, cargo and storage space, along with
comfortable seating for up to six adults. The Defender Max
HD8 DPS starts at $14,399, while the HD8 XT is $17,199.
The Defender Max HD10 DPS starts at $16,299 and the
HD10 XT is $19,099.
The Can-Am Defender MAX side-by-side vehicle has
three driving modes and a four-mode traction system
with Visco-Lok QE front differential that provides multiple
choices and control for varying terrain and tasks. It features
a 1750-pound (793.8-kilogram) payload capacity, 2000-
pound (907.2-kilogram) tow rating and is rated to haul a
best-in-class 1000 pounds (454 kilograms) in its dumping
cargo bed. In addition to the rear cargo bed space,
there are copious amounts of on-board storage by way
of adaptable and folding front and rear passenger seats
and an industry-first removable toolbox. Also integrated
into the cockpit are easy egress/ingress seats, passenger
handholds and fold-down armrests with cup holders.
Can-Am’s six-seat 2017 Defender Max family includes 800cc and 1000cc
models in two trim levels.
Folding front and rear seats create numerous cargo carrying options.
