Features

Brake Holding Mechanism

Hauling & Towing

  • INDUSTRY-LEADING TOWING CAPACITY: With engines, chassis, driving assistance work mode, and suspension all matched to work harder than any other side-by-side, the HD10 Defender can tow up to 2,500 lbs (1134 kg).

HVAC

  • NO SWEAT: AVAILABLE CLIMATE CONTROL: Use the industry-first automatic mode for dust-free, set-and-forget performance, or dial in Heat and Air Conditioning modes to keep the cabin temperature exactly how you like it in any weather.

Innovative Suspension Setup

  • HEAVY DUTY ARCHED A-ARM / ARCHED TTA SUSPENSION: Redesigned Double arched A-Arm front suspension and Arched TTA rear suspension on HD10 models give better stability, a surefooted response.

Leading Engine Technology

  • POWERFUL ROTAX ENGINE LINEUP: Defender delivers a better, quieter ride— up to 82 horsepower and a class-leading 69 lb-ft of torque. Hardworking Rotax HD10, HD8 and HD5 engines are the perfect mix of fun & function.

New Bench Seat With Bolsters

Reliability That Works

  • ENHANCED FRAME & RIGIDITY: Our engineers pulled out all the stops and revised the Defender’s frame to be lighter where it could be—with more rigid for unsurpassed strength while carrying heavy payload off-road.

Torque on Demand

  • PRO-TORQ CVT TRANSMISSION AND ON-THE-FLY 4WD: Selectable Turf Mode / 2WD / 4WD with Visco-Lok† QE auto-locking front differential puts the power down on any terrain. The PRO-TORQ CVT on HD10 models provides improved cooling and electronic belt protection for more durability.
