Precision-Engineered Handling
Harness the Outlander L MAX’s best-in-class power with superior handling. The Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) with Visco-Lok QE auto-locking front differential means you can select less assistance at high speeds and more at low speeds to effortlessly take on any terrain.

Precision Handling, Plush Ride
The industry’s only independent rear suspension where the rear wheels pivot up and down in a vertical line rather than a more cumbersome butterfly motion. It is also strategically designed to offer point-and-shoot handling, optimal traction and the efficient transferring of power to the ground. With 5 preload settings on the shocks and 8.8 inches of suspension travel, the Outlander L MAX DPS soaks up rough terrain to keep the rider comfortable and focused on the trail.

More Efficient Design
Outlander L MAX models are based upon the SST G2 frame with Geometric Contact Control.Its welded-steel frame is engineered with enhanced durability and structural integrity, plus precision handling.

Better Steering Feel
Dive-control geometry delivers better cornering and vehicle-braking dynamics. The 9-in suspension travel increases trail comfort and capability in rough terrain.

Tackle Tough Terrain
A whopping 10.5 inches of ground clearance gives the Outlander L MAX DPS exceptional capabilities in challenging terrain.

Superior Stopping Power
For superior stopping power, large front and rear 214-mm disc brakes with hydraulic twin-piston calipers are standard.

Less Steering Effort
The Tri-Mode DPS™ features three selectable modes (MIN, MED, and MAX) of assist. Each mode provides less assist at high speed for better precision and more assist at low speed for easier steering.

Durable Wheels
Centerless 12-in cast-aluminum wheels reduce weight and offer improved strength in strategic areas. The wheels are wrapped in 25-in. Carlisle Trail Wolf tires for rugged performance on tough terrain and changing conditions.

Better Control
The Can-Am Visco-Lok system is one of the most riderfriendly designs on the market, as the progressively and automatically locking front differential system requires no buttons to push or levers to hold. Once 4x4 is selected, the system intelligently transfers power from the slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction and is not hampered by a speed or rev limiters.
