2015 Can-Am Outlander 6×6 XT First Look 0
BRP brings the Can-Am Outlander 6×6 XT to the North American market for 2015 in 650 and 1000cc versions. Each sources a Rotax V-Twin engine with the 650 pumping out a claimed 62 horsepower and the 1000 producing 82 horses. That power is transferred to the ground via CVT transmission which includes an additional Low gear for optimum torque and towing capability. The air intakes have moved higher up the machine to keep the engine breathing in wet conditions, and BRP added a larger radiator to improve cooling under heavy workloads.
Both Outlanders come with Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent rear suspension, with shocks that feature five-way preload adjustability and 9.3 inches of travel. Out front a Double A-arm suspension set-up travels through nine-inches and also features five-way preload adjustable shocks. There are 12-inch cast aluminum wheels shod in 26-inch Carlisle ACT Radial tires and both machines come with 11-inches of ground clearance. Braking is handled by two-piston calipers gripping 214mm discs.
Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering comes standard on the 650 and 1000, with modes ranging from minimum, medium and maximum depending on rider preference and conditions. Both also feature a Visco-Lok Auto-Locking front differential with 4×6 and 6×6 options. Visco-Lok is a progressive and automatic system that can be engaged without additional buttons or levers.
The new Can-Am 6×6 models are built for work, and as such comes with a dual storage level cargo box on the back that can carry up to 700-pounds. The rear unit also features tilt-assist dumping and removable side panels. Towing capacity is rated at 1650-pounds and out front a 3000-pound Warn Winch is included, standard. Both models come with 650-Watt Magnetos to provide ample power to the 6×6 and accessories and the front rack is rated to carry up to 100-pounds.
These workhorses also come with a Digitally Encoded Security System that makes use of electronic key codes in the key and engine control module. The ATV will not start unless the key and engine module codes match up.
The 2015 Can-Am Outlander 650 6×6 XT is available in Light Grey while the 1000 6×6 XT comes in yellow or NEXT-G-1 Vista camo. Pricing for both models is not yet available.
