(AmmoLand.com) The Can-Am Outlander 6×6 family of six-wheeled ATVs is at the top of its class when it comes to conquering tough work and challenging terrain. The Outlander 6×6 vehicles have an additional set of rear wheels, and an exclusive Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2™) rear suspension (complete with a quick-release sway bar). For tackling tough chores, the ATVs have an extra low L gear, Dual-Level cargo box with modular accessories and the largest towing capacity of any Can-Am ATV. For 2017, Can-Am has enhanced its talented 6×6 ATV family with all the Outlander ATV family updates as well as the addition of the new Outlander 6×6 DPS package. The newest 6×6 vehicle comes standard with Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering and Visco-Lok QE at an affordable price.

 CAN-AM OUTLANDER 6×6 XT 1000

PERFORMANCE

82-hp Rotax V-Twin 1000

An 80º 976cc liquid-cooled Rotax V-Twin power plant is at the core of the Outlander 6×6 XT 1000 and produces an impressive 82 horsepower. With a superb power-to-weight ratio, 65.1 lbs.-ft. of torque and electronic fuel injection (46 mm throttle body), the DOHC engine is as efficient and strong. Regardless of temperature or altitude, EFI ensures optimal performance from the engine at all times. Despite its hearty performance levels, the eight-valve engine remains controllable and offers useable power for a wide array of riders and situations.

CVT transmission with extra-low L gear

The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) means no shifting is required. The system includes standard engine braking, high, low, park, neutral and reverse. The CVT housing has 13 bolts to ensure a proper seal and also includes an integrated drain plug. The extra-low gear provides unmatched comfort for low-speed riding and an exceptional and smooth traction when pulling heavy loads.

Relocated air intakes

The engine’s air intake and CVT inlets have been positioned as high as possible on the Outlander 6×6 to improve breathing while navigating wet and muddy conditions.

Dual-room, no-tools air box

A no-tools air box is placed at a higher and more centralized location for filtering and processing air. A dual-room air filtration design captures dirty air in one portion of the box and clean air in another section before it sends the air to the engine. A higher air intake ensures performance in mud and water.

Large radiator

The large, efficient radiator offers up to 27 kW of cooling capacity to keep the engine running cool for optimal performance.

HANDLING

Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)

The Tri-Mode DPS system features three modes (MIN, MED and MAX) allowing riders to select the desired amount of steering assist to adjust to the terrain requirements and to his riding style. All modes offer less assist at high speed to keep maximum steering feel to the rider and more assist at low speed to reduce steering effort.

12-inch cast-aluminum wheels

The stylish, painted black 12-inch cast-aluminum wheels have a computer-optimized configuration that increases strength in critical areas while removing unnecessary weight from other sections of the wheels.

26-inch Carlisle ACT Radial tires

Proven 26-inch ACT Radial tires from Carlisle provide a smoother ride and better shock absorption.

Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2) rear suspension

The Outlander 6×6 vehicles use an industry-exclusive, four-wheel independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes. The wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion. This ensures the vehicle moves only in the direction you point it and is designed to improve traction and optimize transfer of power to the ground. Offering a five-way preload adjustable shocks and 9.3 inches (23.6 cm) of suspension travel, it can soak up rough terrain while keeping the rider comfortable and focused on the trail.

Visco-Lok QE auto-locking front differential

For situations that require optimal traction and as much contact with the terrain at hand, the Outlander 6×6 offers both 4×6 and 6×6 with its Visco-Lok QE. In 4×6 mode, all four rear wheels provide traction. Once 6×6 is selected, the system intelligently transfers power from the slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction and is not hampered by speed or rev limiters. The system progressively and automatically locks and requires no additional buttons to push or levers to hold.

Double A-arm front suspension with dive-control geometry

The front suspension features a dive-control, a short spindle, along with anti-kickback geometry to provide a better steering. Front-end suspension travel is 9 inches (22.9 cm) for improved trail comfort. Five-way preload shocks offer more than an inch of additional suspension travel.

11-inch ground clearance

When combined with its impressive suspension travel, Visco-Lok QE and true 6×6 capabilities, the 11-inch ground clearance on the Outlander 6×6 makes conquering rugged terrain a snap.

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 Frame

The Outlander 6×6 uses the industry-exclusive Surround Spar Technology (SST) second-generation frame. Featuring an 82-inch wheelbase, the frame offers delicate balance of structural integrity, durability and handling.

Quick-release sway bar

With its integrated Quick-Release Sway Bar, owners can adjust the amount of articulation from the rear TTI to improve the ride for both heavy loads or when unloaded.

214 mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers

The 2017 Outlander 6×6 XT features four outboard 214mm hydraulic disc brakes with twin-piston calipers, front and rear, for superior stopping power.
