2017 Can-Am Outlander 6x6 XT 1000


The tougher the terrain is, the better the characteristics of the Outlander 6x6 XT display. It sets a new standard in the segment by reaching previously impassable destinations.


  • ROTAX V-TWIN ENGINE: The 82-hp Rotax 1000 liquid-cooled V-Twin engine is complete with four valves per cylinder and single overhead camshaft. It delivers big power and performance while being both reliable and efficient.
  • CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION (CVT) WITH EXTRA LOW L-GEAR: The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) on the Outlander 6x6 has an extra low range L-gear to allow for an increased workload and a softer engagement for smooth starts. Its CVT intake features improved cooling for increased efficiency in work conditions.
  • TRI-MODE DYNAMIC POWER STEERING (DPS): The Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) offers easy steering assistance to the rider, adapting the level to the vehicle's speed. At lower speed, assistance is increased to reduce steering effort while at higher speed it is reduced to keep maximum steering feel to the rider. On top of that, it is possible choose between three modes to match each rider's preferences.
  • VISCO-LOK QE AUTO-LOCKING FRONT DIFFERENTIAL: For situations that require optimal traction and as much contact patch with the terrain at hand, the Outlander 6x6 offers both 4x6 and 6x6 operation with its Visco-Lok QE. Once 6x6 is selected, the system intelligently transfers power from the slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction and is not hampered by speed or rev limiters. The progressively and automatically locking front differential system requires no additional buttons to push or levers to hold. In 4x6 mode, all four rear wheels provide traction.
  • DUAL-LEVEL CARGO BOX WITH MODULAR ACCESSORIES: This unique cargo box features two storage levels, 700-lb (318 kg) of total hauling capacity and tilt-assist dumping. Its standard side panels enable you to create a flatbed in seconds. You can also add accessories such as a cargo cover, log bars, tailgate extension and more.
