the KingQuad has a straight axle, it
would tow and hold more weight,
but that wasn’t the case. The gas tank
holds 4. 2 gallons, but since the engine
is smaller than the Outlander’s, it
runs at an average of 20 mpg and
doesn’t need to hold as much fuel as
the Can-Am to go similar distances.
The Can-Am Outlander L 500
and the Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi
are both well-made utility 4x4s that
are fun to ride and quite capable.
However, when it comes to choosing
which machine is worth its price,
the Outlander L takes the cake and
eats it too. The 450 version of the
Can-Am is $500 cheaper than the
$6499 Suzuki and left us feeling like
the KingQuad needed an update in
The KingQuad can tow up to 992
pounds and only has an overall rack
capacity of 198 pounds.
The Outlander L can tow up to 1300
pounds and has an overall rack capacity of 360 pounds.
