CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 1000 DPS ($12,499)
The king of the Can-Am two-up line has the longest
wheelbase in the ATV world at 59 inches. It gives its queen
a redesigned backrest with a little more flex. The cargo
racks are redesigned this year and have a no-slip surface.
You can convert the Max from two-up to single-seat mode
quickly, giving you more storage space. The XT is $13,099
and the flagship XT-P version is $15,099.
ARCTIC CAT TRV400 ($7649)
This is the bargain of the Arctic Cat two-up line. It has a
simple but reliable air-cooled motor with a carburetor and
366cc of displacement. In case you’re wondering what
happened to the TRV450, this is it. Arctic Cat renamed it
last year. The chassis is almost the same as those of the
larger TRVs, with a 58-inch wheelbase and fully convertible passenger/cargo provisions.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 800R DPS ($11,449)
Like the 1000, the most basic version of the 800cc two-up
Can-Am still has power steering. The DPS package also gives
you 12-inch cast wheels and the quick-engagement version of
the Visco-Loc locking front differential. If you choose to
upgrade to the XT package, you get different wheels and tires,
plus a 3000-pound Warn winch with a wired remote control.
The XT-P has upgraded shocks and sells for $14,049.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 500 ($8799)
Can-Am’s 500cc Outlander Max is virtually indistinguishable from the larger models, using the same double-A-arm SST Generation 2 chassis. The Rotax V-twin motor
even looks the same, differing only in displacement. The
base model of the 500 has no power steering, but that can
be had on the next version up for an additional $900. The
XT has that and more for $10,299.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 650 ($9699)
If you have big, burly arms, Can-Am will let you buy
the 650 Max without power steering. It has the same chassis as the other Max models and a new passenger backrest designed to minimize kickback. You can switch to sin-gle-person mode, and the redesigned racks will work with
BRP’s Linq system for attaching accessories. The 650 is
available in three levels, topping out with an XT.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 400 ($7649)
The 400 is based on the older Can-Am Outlander chassis, which uses MacPherson struts in front rather than
double A-arms. It has a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder
Rotax motor that produces a claimed 32 horsepower. The
passenger seat and backrest can be removed easily to
increase cargo space, in case you said the wrong thing at
dinner. There is an XT version for $8699.
