CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX XT-P 1000/800R
Can-Am’s high-end two-up package can be had with
either the 71-horsepower 800R motor or the 82-horse-
power 1000. In either case, the XT-P gives you Fox Podium
X 2.0 shocks, power steering, 12-inch beadlock wheels
with Carlisle tires, a 3000-pound Warn winch, upgraded
gauges and automotive paint. You can convert the passenger seat easily into storage for solo rides.
ARCTIC CAT TRV 500 ($7999)
The most affordable to take a passenger along on your
Arctic Cat is the TRV500. This is a combination of the
443cc, liquid-cooled, EFI motor and the two-up chassis. In
this version, you opt out of the XT package with its power
steering and cast-aluminum wheels, but you still get the
front Speed Rack and the rear 3-in-1 system, which lets
you repurpose the back seat to carry cargo.
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 1000 DPS/800R DPS
Can-Am’s DPS package is, at the risk of being obvious,
headlined by Dynamic Power Steering, which has three
different assistance levels. The package also gives you
auto-locking front differential and cast-aluminum wheels.
The passenger accommodations are fairly plush, with a
redesigned backrest that reduces kickback and has added
flex. The XT version is $12,199 for the 800R and $13,249 for
CAN-AM OUTLANDER MAX 650 ($9799)
The 650 Rotax V-twin motor is available in three different Max packages. The base model is for the couple that
doesn’t want power steering or cast wheels, but wants all
the passenger trappings. The DSP is the next model up for
$10,699 and the XT is $11,349. All have the new backrest
and racks. The 650 is not offered in the highest-level XT-P
package or the budget L line.
CAN-AM OULANDER MAX 500 DPS ($9899)
If you want the 500cc Rotax V-twin with the premium
chassis in a two-up model, Can-Am wants you to have
Dynamic Power Steering as well—the stripped-down configuration of this model is only offered as the Outlander
L. The DSP model also gives you cast-aluminum wheels
and the auto-lock front diff. The XT version is $10,549 and
has a Warn winch. Both come with the convertible rack/
CAN-AM OUTLANDER L MAX 500/450 ($7849/$7249)
The L series is all about value. It has the same frame
as the more expensive Max models, but with fewer bells
and whistles. You don’t get as much storage capacity or
as much electrical power. The racks are steel. And, in the
case of the 450, there’s an all-new single-cylinder Rotax
motor, displacing 427cc and producing 38 horsepower.
The DPS version is $8149 for the 450 and $8749 for the 500.
