Can-Am is releasing new mid-cc (medium engine displacement) Outlander ATV recreational and utility models aimed at improving rider experience with greater performance, comfort, storage and reliability.
The new recreational Outlander 700 and 500 models, and utility Outlander PRO HD7 and HD5 models are all equipped with power, ground clearance, suspension travel, towing capacity, rack capacity and longest maintenance intervals. For 2023, the new Outlander recreational line-up includes the standard models, the DPS 500, DPS 700, X mr 700, MAX DPS, and MAX XT 700. The Outlander PRO HD7 and HD5 can reportedly haul, tow and store more than any other ATV on the market. For 2023, the new Outlander PRO utility line-up includes the standard PRO models and PRO XU models.
Elsa Vilarinho, director of global marketing of Can-Am Off-Road at BRP, said: “This launch is probably the biggest Can-Am ATV launch of the past 10 years! We are excited to offer consumers a best-in-class ATV designed with their needs in mind and how they use the product, from the riding experience, to real-world capabilities and our awesome accessories.”
A rear-facing 650cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected Rotax Advanced Combustion Efficiency (ACE) four-stroke engine design and configuration are complemented by a new integrated transmission design and pDrive clutch. Thanks to ECU calibration and different camshaft designs, the 700 and PRO HD7 models have 50-horsepower and 41 ft-lb of torque, while the 500 and PRO HD5 models have 40-horsepower and 37 ft-lb of torque.
All Outlander 500 and 700 machines are equipped with the new pDrive primary CVT transmission for smoother shifting, increased durability and feature L/H/N/R/P gearing. The Outlander PRO HD5 and HD7 machines are equipped with a new pDrive primary CVT transmission that also features work calibration along with Extra L/H/N/R/P gearing. Both the Outlander and Outlander PRO platforms share a selectable 2WD / 4WD with Visco-Lok†, Visco-Lok† QE or Visco-4Lok with auto-locking front differential drivetrain offered according to the packages.
Both the recreational and utility models are equipped with 9.75” of double A-Arm front suspension travel with twin tube shocks upfront, and with 10.25” in the rear. The PRO models feature stiffer suspension tuning to allow for working conditions and heavier payloads.
The new chassis of the Outlander platform allows for enhanced ergonomic comfort for riders and passengers. A thick and durable seat increases comfort and reduces noise and chassis feedback. Complementing the new pDrive primary CVT transmission is a more ergonomically friendly shift lever with a smoother grip and refined shifting experience.
Storage & Accessories
The Outlander and Outlander PRO both come standard with a range of storage capabilities, including the new 1-gallon integrated glove box compartment and select models also feature a magnetic phone mount and USB port. The new Outlander platform is available with 125 different LinQ accessory options and the vehicle accessory options are broken down into three categories, front cargo area, handlebar interface and ergo zone, and rear cargo area.
