Can-Am Unleashes A 6×6 UTV For All Your Backcountry Hauling Needs

The side-by-side market has been flooded with entries following the class’ seemingly instant rise to popularity regarding affordable off-road vehicles. Can-Am has been a top contender in the battle of SBS vehicle manufacturers, taking the stance that a workhorse can also be fun. In that regard, their 2020 Defender 6×6 proves that utility is synonymous with good times.

It is immediately apparent that the Defender 6×6 is just as capable of climbing through off the map trails as it is hauling a load on the back forty. The additional rear axle gives this model a robust 6-foot cargo bed, the capability to haul 1,700lbs of payload, and a 3,000lb towing capacity, which nearly doubles the accommodations over the base model Defender. Powered by a 976 cc V-twin Rotax engine that puts out 82 hp and 69 lb-ft of torque, selecting between 4×4 and 6×6 settings can be done on the fly with the Visco-Lok QE auto-locking front differential. With dual-shock A-arms and trailing arms providing 11 inches of travel for each of the six 27” wheels and an impressive 13” of ground clearance all around, the Defender 6×6 is a no-nonsense beast ready to tackle any job, no matter how tough. And it can be yours for $17,999.
