Without any hesitation, we can confidently say that Can-Am is on-the-gas these days. They are releasing new products every 6 months, just as they promised to do years ago. And, there seems to be no end in sight. In fact, the product marketing manager told us that they are going to continue their push to keep releasing new products at a feverish rate. How could you not be excited to see what comes out of the Can-Am factory next?
2019 was all about the utility vehicles for Can-Am. They have been constantly upgrading their Defender lineup, and the 2020 model year keeps the tradition alive. Two new models sport a 6’ bed on the back, which is an industry-first in this segment. Those models are named the 6×6 and the PRO, both of which are 3-passenger units. Then, you have one that is heavily updated from a technology and innovation standpoint – the fully enclosed, 3-passenger Defender Limited.
Can-Am recently assembled their full gamut of new vehicles in the Lone Star state and gave us the opportunity to test them out to bring you a full report. Well, without further adieu, let’s see how each of these machines performed, and I’ll give you insight as to whether each of these will be right for you. Here is our 2020 Can-Am Defender Lineup Review:
At the end of the day, all three of these all-new Can-Am Defender models serve a specific purpose. Those using a utility UTV for work will gravitate towards the Defender PRO. Those using their UTV for adventure, hunting, and the situations that necessitate the ultimate capability, then you’ll definitely go for the 6×6. And, those of you who want to have all the bells and whistles while also riding in total comfort with an automatic climate control system, well, then, the Limited is the perfect vehicle for you. No matter which one you choose, they are very well rounded vehicles.
