WELL-PREPARED WITH FACTORY-INSTALLED FEATURES

The Defender XT CAB is the most complete utility vehicle that is inspired by those who drive it. Tough, capable and clever features allow the Defender XT CAB to get the most out of your workday in comfort, style and ingenuity.

Features

  • HEAVY-DUTY ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINES: The Defender XT CAB package offers two very capable true-work powerplant options. The 72-hp Rotax HD10 V-Twin is specifically tuned for serious work but also offers 61 lb-ft torque and peak torque at lower RPM for optimal delivery for recreational use. The work-focused Rotax HD8 V-Twin delivers 50 hp and 50 lb-ft torque for tough tasks.
  • BETTER CONTROL: The Visco-Lok QE† front differential combined with the lockable rear differential offer a 4-mode traction system providing multiple choices for varying terrain or tasks. Users, via a separate front-and-rear toggle switches, can select between a 2x4 open rear differential for tight turning and turf protection, a 2x4 lockable rear for improved 2WD traction, a 4x4 open rear for more maneuverability in rugged terrain and a 4x4 locked rear for maximum traction. The rear differential is gear-on-gear to the transmission for better response, no maintenance, better efficiency and fewer components.
