To the anticipation of many, BRP has released details and pictures of the exciting 2013 lineup. At about 4:10 pm Central time press releases detailing the 2013 ATV and Side-by-Side lines were received via email. Can-Am also posted pictures of the new 2013 Outlander X mr 1000 and other 2013 models on their Facebook page and videos on their YouTube channel. Other big news with the release is the production of 15% more horsepower Can-Am squeezed out of the Rotax 500 engines. This places the class leading engine even further out of the reach of competitors.
Highlights for 2013 include the next-generation Outlander MAX family now featuring a second generation Surrounding Spar Technology frame (SST G2). The passenger seat has also been totally redesigned. The Outlander MAX LIMITED is now available in a Pearl White paint.
The aforementioned all-new Outlander X mr 1000 is built on the same new MAX frame. In additional to the traditional Can-Am yellow and black finish the Outlander X mr 1000 is available in an all-new NEXT G-1 Vista camouflage finish. It also benefits from a larger relocated radiator, ITP wheels, restyled dash panel and a rider-adjustable air controlled suspension. The Outlander X mr 1000 is THE mud machine.
Most of the other Outlander models will see the new SST frame for 2013. Can-Am also has Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) packages available (or standard) for all 500 cc+ models. XT-P packages are now available for the Outlander 800R, 1000 and MAX packages. The sport inspired package adds the new dash, full FOX suspension system, 12-inch aluminum beadlock wheels, exclusive colors and more. The DS450 and Renegade also return but with few changes as of press time.
Can-Am also provided the new DPS package to the Commander Side-by-Side lineup. The DPS package for the Commander includes 27 Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 rubber on 14-inch cast aluminum. The XT and Limited packages include a 4,000 pound WARN winch, half-windshield, premium wheels and an entertainment system with integrated Garmin touchscreen GPS. A couple of new color schemes are also available for 2013. The killer Can-Am Commander setup just keeps getting better.
