2014 Can-Am Outlander XT Features and Benefits:

Can-Am Outlander XT


Category-Leading Performance
Available in a 46-hp Rotax 500, 62-hp Rotax 650, 71-hp Rotax 800R, or 82-hp Rotax 1000 liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, with four valves per cylinder and single overhead camshafts, the signature Can-Am engine lineup offers unmatched power for a true performance edge.

Always in the Right Gear
Continuously Variable Transmission means the drive shaft is always in the right gear. For ease of use, you can count on the engine braking feature to help slow you down when going downhill.

Performance Edge
Every Can-Am® is built with a Rotax® engine, featuring best-in-class power and industry leading power-to-weight ratio. Unmatched power provides a performance edge and delivers superior fuel efficiency.

Strong Power Output
This package provides a more powerful magneto with 625 W of power output.

Cleaner Air to the Engine
The new air box has been reconfigured and placed at a higher, more centralized location for filtering and processing air. The no-tools air box features a dual-room design, capturing dirty air in one portion of the box and clean air in the other before sending it to the engine.

Large Capacity
Ride longer and get the job done with the large-capacity fuel tank.


More Efficient Design
The next-generation, industry-exclusive SST G2 frame with Geometric Contact Control. The more efficient welded-steel frame incorporates new processes and updated geometry for increased structural integrity, improved durability, and precision handling.

Eliminates Scrub and Camber Changes
The only independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes, meaning the wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion. This ensures the vehicle moves only in the direction you point it. Reconfigured for improved traction and optimal transfer of power to the ground.

Better Steering Feel
Includes dive-control geometry for better cornering and vehicle-braking dynamics. The use of a shortened spindle, along with anti-kickback geometry, provide a better steering feel. The 9-in suspension travel increases trail comfort and aggressive riding capability.

Steering Assistance
The Tri-Mode DPS™ features three selectable modes (MIN, MED, and MAX) of steering depending on rider preference. It is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. Direct Link technology ensures fast response and less kickback. Also comes with Visco-Lok† QE.

Better Control
All DPS-equipped models have Visco-Lok† QE, which has all the features and benefits of the standard quick-engagement Visco-Lok† differential, but with an even quicker engagement point. This differential, unlike some competitors’ differentials, does not have a speed limiter.

Smooth Ride
12-in cast-aluminum wheels with machined finish. The centerless design reduces unsprung weight and offers improved strength. The 26-in, 3-ply Carlisle ACT tires feature a tread pattern that is aggressive enough to tackle tough terrain, yet provide a smooth ride.


Can-Am Outlander XT

Easy On, Easy Off
Redesigned cargo racks offer more convenience, durability, versatility, and cargo hauling capacity. Reinforced composite racks offer an integrated anti-skid surface and elevated ridge. Predetermined “cutouts” for use with Can-Am’s exclusive LinQ accessory system. Combined rack capacity of 300 lb.

Convenient Storage
A huge 5.7-gallon (21.4L) water-resistant rear storage box offers industry-leading cargo capacity and is located beneath the rear cargo rack. The more convenient location means riders can access the water-resistant, sealed storage box even when the rear cargo rack is loaded.

Exclusive Anti-Theft System
The exclusive D.E.S.S.™ anti-theft system prevents your ATV from starting unless a coded microchip in the key matches a code embedded in the engine control module – so only you can start your vehicle.

Lighting the Way
The most lighting output of any ATV in the industry. Restyled headlights honor the Can-Am heritage while offering enhanced visibility for trail riding. On high beam, the twin 60-W projectors and dual 55-W reflectors give the Outlander 230 W of visual clarity.

Powerful Winch
This powerful 3,000-lb (1,361 kg) capacity factory-installed winch is equipped with a wired remote control that neatly stows in the underside of the ATV’s front storage compartment cover.

Added Protection
The front and rear bumpers are factory installed and are covered by a factory warranty. The added protection gives peace of mind in rugged conditions.
