VALCOURT, Quebec – BRP is expanding its line of Can-Am ATVs as part of the OEM's 2015 model lineup with the Outlander L 450 and 500, Outlander L MAX 450 and 500 and the Outlander 6X6 XT.
Outlander L 450 and 500: Boasting more horsepower than the previous big Outlander offerings, the Outlander L models (top photo) have 38hp in the form of a liquid-cooled single-cylinder Rotax four-stroke or 46hp with the liquid-cooled SOHC Rotax V-Twin engine.
Both models come with a five-year extended warranty, CVT and steel racks and an optional Can-Am DPS package that includes dynamic power steering, Visco-Lok QE, a larger magneto and cast-aluminum wheels.
The Outlander L 450 is replacing the Outlander 400, which is being discontinued. Base pricing has already been announced for the Outlander L models, with the 450 starting at $6,399 and the 500 starting at $6,999.
Outlander L MAX 450 and 500: A longer wheelbase and the components for carrying a passenger are part of what set the Outlander L MAX models apart from the L versions. There is also a removable storage box, and the steel racks have a combined capacity of 360 lbs.
The MAX family’s passenger seat has been redesigned for 2015, and the passenger area includes handholds and footrests.
Outlander 6X6 LT: The 6X6 is new to Can-Am’s North American lineup, and it comes with two engine choices: the 62hp Rotax V-Twin 650 or the 82hp liquid-cooled Rotax 1000 V-Twin.
The extra set of wheels comes along with a new Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2) rear suspension and quick-release sway bar. The 6X6 also reportedly has the largest towing capacity of any Can-Am ATV and a 3,000-lb. WARN winch.
Carrying capacity includes a dual-level cargo box with modular accessories. The Outlander 6X6 ATVs, as well as the Maverick 1000R X mr and Outlander 1000 X mr side-by-sides, have a lower L gear for increased workload.
