Can Am: Defender HD5

Can Am added a mid-size engine option to its popular Defender lineup this year, promising “full-size functionality and unmatched versatility at an attractive price point.” While the Defender HD5 side-by-side may have a smaller engine than its big brothers, it’s no less capable in the field. Delivering 38 horsepower, it can tow up to 1,500 pounds and carry 600. And with the industry’s largest fuel tank, expect more time on the go without refueling. The HD5 comes in three colours, including Mossy Oak Break-Up Country.

Engine: 427cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder Rotax
Transmission: CVT
Braking: Hydraulic disc
Suspension: Double A-arm front, torsional trailing arm rear
Fuel Capacity: 40 litres
Cargo Capacity: 600 pounds
