Features

Features

  • MAGNIFICENT MUD MOVER: Yeah, it roars: the 82-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work, and to be a serious companion in muddy conditions. Why? Torque. With Smart-Lok technology, the engine feels even more responsive thanks to an all-new front differential setup to get the most out of the snorkeled Rotax powerplant.
  • MUD BRAINS: Next-level traction, honed for mud: put the 4WD system in Turf, 2WD, 4WD TRAIL / 4WD Mud with exclusive Smart-Lok* technology using a keypad. Smart-Lok is a fully lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically-controlled automatic modes. Using multiple sensors and data, it engages near-instantly, locking with the right load at the right moment. Get maximum traction while retaining low-speed maneuverability. *Smart-Lok was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry
  • GRAB A SNORKE: Are you built for the deep end? Defender X mr is the one work side-by-side vehicle with a suite of factory mud upgrades for its drivetrain, including raised-to-the-roof snorkeled CVT and engine intakes, PRO-TORQ CVT Transmission with Quick Response System (QRS), Electronic Drive Belt Protection, and a lower gearing ratio for down-low power to haul out of a hole.
  • MUD-READY TREADS: Want a head start? These 30 in. ITP Cryptid† tires on 14 in. cast-aluminum wheels will hook up all the way from the hole shot to the moment you turn it off, whether for a blast across a mud hole or on a long-distance ride.
  • UPPORTING ROLE: Fitted with arched arms, aluminum rock sliders, and mudguards, we've given added protection for obstacles and unforseen circumstances that might derail a lesser side-by-side. At speed, its improved geometry returns excellent roadholding and control.
  • EADY TO RESCUE: A relocated 4,500-lb (2,041 kg) winch with synthetic rope, roller fairlead and front and rear recovery anchors might seem like overkill—but when everyone’s trying to keep up with an X mr, a few are bound to get stuck. Help ’em out. And frankly, if you’re not winching…you’re not really mudding.
  • SECURELY SPORTING: For a more sporting ride, our engineers quickly learned that bolstering the Defender's capability meant its occupants needed to be more secure than ever, leading to the all-new VERSA-PRO bench seats. With added side padding and a redesigned profile, they'll help you control and enjoy this side-by-side vehicle to the fullest. The VERSA-PRO bench seat also features X package seat trims.
  • REAL FUTURE TOGETHER: When you add it all up, a lower cost of ownership, easier maintenance, and 1-year warranty mean less downtime and more time behind the wheel. The Defender has an easy-to-service design and uses durable Rotax engines for a reason: they can handle the long haul.
