The recreation-utility category is a crowded one, but the Can-Am® Outlander™ stands out with more standard adrenaline than any other competitor. That’s because each Outlander model features the most powerful engine in its class, race-bred suspensions, the exclusive Visco-Lok front differential and other trick features.

The Outlander 400 H.O. rules the 400cc class in horsepower – despite giving some competitors a 50cc head start!

Outlander MAX model – Outlander MAX models are designed specifically for riding with a passenger. The longer vehicle wheelbase not only delivers rocksolid stability and super predictable handling with a passenger, but one-up, too. Ability to swap seat and rack extension box without tools makes the MAX model extremely versatile.

Outlander XT model – The Outlander XT models include popular aftermarket additions, including winch with remote control and cast aluminium wheels. Carlisle ACT radial tires, bumpers and more are installed at the factory. Buyers opting for the XT model save more than $2,500 over purchasing and installing all these features separately. Plus, these items are covered by the factory warranty.

NEW for 2008

  • Restyled painted steel rims
  • Rear fascia, taillight and regulator cover
  • More comfortable handgrips
  • 500 lbs. (227 kg) additional winch capacity (now 3,000 lbs/1,361 kg) on XT models

OutlanderTM 400 H.O. Highlights

  • 400cc Rotax® single-cylinder engine – the most powerful in its class
  • Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI™) rear suspension with no scrub, 75% fewer moving parts
  • Automatic progressively locking Visco-Lok‡ front differential
  • MacPherson Strut front suspension for plush ride
  • Get-on-and-go continuously variable transmission (CVT)

Outlander 400 H.O. Key Features

Visco-Lok Front Differential – Progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100% with no rev or speed limiter. Can-Am exclusive.

Trailing Torsional Independent (TTI) Rear Suspension – Trailing arm design provides more control and stability, especially in rough terrain, by eliminating scrub. Wheels move rearward as they move up and down producing a smoother ride than the competition, and does not steer from the rear. Plus, TTI has 75% fewer parts than competitive designs and significantly decreases tire wear

MacPherson strut front suspension – Compact design is lightweight, and provides precise handling and a plush ride.

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) frame – Rather than the common tubular box, the SST frame is a single spar that is lightweight, yet strong. It contributes to the Outlander’s benchmark power-to-weight ratio and low centre of gravity. And the unique design enables the ATV to “ski” over obstacles.

Multi-function digital gauge – Gauge is easy to read with multiple functions, including:

  • Digital speedometer
  • Odometer
  • Trip meter
  • Gear position
  • Hour meter
  • Engine hour meter
  • 4x4 indicator
  • Temperature/Engine lights
  • Electronic fuel gauge

NEW! Painted steel rims – for a more high-tech style 25-inch (63cm) Ohtsu H-track tire – Lightweight, great handling on base model 500 and 400

NEW! Rear fascia, tail light and regulator cover – For a more finished appearance; protects rear wire harness, connectors Inboard disc brake – Unique design reduces unsprung weight and helps centralize masses for more responsive handling. Also better protects against mud and debris.

Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.) – Industry’s first standard anti-theft device. Electronic code in key must match code in ECU to start.

Front and rear steel racks – 100-pound (45 kg) capacity in front, 200 pounds (90 kg) in back.

Outlander MAX Features

Longer vehicle wheelbase – The passenger rides well in front of the rear axle for rock-solid stability and super predictable handling.

Stadium-style seating – The passenger rides above the driver, stadium-style, so they can see down the trail.

Passenger comfort features – A well-padded active backrest moves with rider. Raised footrests and multi-position handholds add comfort.

Convertible Rack System (CRS) – The passenger seat can be removed and replaced with arack-extension/totable cargo box in just seconds, without tools. BRP offers several accessories, such as a cargo box and touring box that interface seamlessly with the CRS system.
