“The launch of the new 2015 Outlander L line of ATVs is a significant and sensible decision for BRP,” said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager, Global Sales and Consumer Experience. “It can be challenging to maintain a premium positioning and a truly superior product in the price competitive mid-range category, but our engineering and design teams have done an outstanding job creating the affordable, class-leading Outlander L family of Can-Am ATVs.”
- New Outlander L 450 and Outlander L 500 models
- Additions to the vehicle line-up and improvements in 2015
The new 2015 Outlander L 450 and L 500 ATVs — also available in the MAX platform — include the key Can-Am DNA essentials of industry-leading performance, precision-engineered handling and a rider-focused design, but also represent the most affordable SST G2 Can-Am ATVs to date. The Outlander L models come with either a purpose-built, new 38-HP liquid-cooled, single-cylinder Rotax 450 four-stroke or the established 46-HP liquid-cooled, SOHC Rotax V-Twin 500 engine.
BRP offers two Rotax V-Twin engine choices (650 and 1000) for the Outlander 6×6 vehicles, delivering on the promise of providing class-leading performance. However, consumer-friendly features like selectable six-wheel-drive, multipurpose dump box, 750-kg (1,650-lb) towing capacity, Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with new lower L-gear, Double Torsional Trailing Arm Independent (TTI2) rear suspension, Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering and Visco-Lok† QE are what create a versatile, convenient package.
Making a return to the Can-Am ATV line-up is the revamped Outlander 800R X mr model that features the one-up SST G2 chassis and the proven tire-and-wheel package from the flagship Outlander 1000 X mr model. Along with the new ATVs, BRP also introduced five new optional colour schemes for the 2015 line-up.
Six new colours and other enhancements highlight the 2015 Can-Am Commander and Maverick side-by-side line-ups. The Maverick 1000R X mr side-by-side vehicle is outfitted with fully adjustable FOX† piggyback shocks and the new lower L-gear for improved CVT precision. A 2,041 kg -pound (4,500-lb) WARN ProVantage† winch is now standard on all XT-package side-by-sides. New cast-aluminum wheels were redesigned on both the Commander DPS and Commander XT platforms, while the Commander XT-P platform has updated beadlock wheels.
