A year after its impressive debut, the Can-Am Outlander L ATV family returns even stronger for 2016 with updated performance levels, revised one-year break-in maintenance schedule and all-new packages. A new, class-leading 48-hp Rotax® V-Twin provides improved performance for the new Outlander L 570. A new Green and optional Mossy Oak† Break-Up Country Camo† are new color choices for the Outlander L models in 2016. Also joining the family for 2016 are two all-new packages: Outlander L LE 570 and Outlander L Mossy Oak Hunting Edition.

PERFORMANCE

2 Rotax engine options

The 48-hp, eight-valve, liquid-cooled SOHC Rotax 570 V-Twin offers improved performance for the new model year making this engine the most powerful in its category. The Outlander L 570 ATV’s engine received larger pistons, longer stroke and a higher connecting rod to improve horsepower and torque as well as acceleration without compromising top-end speed. The new efficient 570cc Rotax EFI engine gained an additional 4% horsepower and 9% more torque in low and mid-range RPM and remains very capable of work and play. EFI ensures optimal performance from the engine at all times.

The Outlander L 450 uses a hearty 38-hp Rotax single-cylinder engine, with electronic fuel injection to be the benchmark in its category. EFI ensures optimal performance from the engine at all times. Progressive throttle control means the power remains manageable in slow-speed circumstances or during quicker riding situations.

CVT transmission

The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) means no shifting is required. The system includes standard engine braking with High, Low, Park, Neutral and Reverse gears. On the Rotax 570 V-Twin, a new L gear ratio is now 7% shorter, meaning more comfort for low-speed riding and better traction for pulling heavy loads. The CVT housing has 13 bolts to ensure a proper seal and also includes an integrated drain plug.

1,300-pound towing capacity

Fully equipped to move a load, the Outlander L has a standard rear hitch plate and a category leading 1,300-pound (590 kg) towing capacity.

Dual-room, no-tools air box

The no-tools air box is placed at a high and centralized location for filtering and processing air. It also has a dual-room air filtration design that captures dirty air in one portion of the box and clean air in another section before it sends the air to the engine. A higher air intake ensures performance in mud and water.

HANDLING

Torsional Trailing Arm Independent (TTI™) rear suspension

With far less moving parts than competitive systems, TTI is designed to eliminate scrub and camber changes when the suspension works up and down and keep the quad in straight line. The rear suspension also has motion-control shocks and offers 8.8 inches (22.4 cm) of travel. It includes a removable external sway bar and lower pivot points for geometric squatting to improve traction and power transfer.

Double A-arm front suspension

The double A-arm configuration with motion-control shocks and five-way adjustable preload settings provides a smooth ride. Front-end suspension travel is 9 inches (23.6 cm). Dive-control geometry tightly controls the roll-center, especially when entering corners.

10.5-inch ground clearance

A whopping 10.5 inches (26.7 cm) of ground clearance gives the Outlander L exceptional capabilities in challenging terrain.

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST™) G2 Frame

The Outlander L ATVs use an industry-exclusive Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 frame from BRP. The welded-steel SST frame offers increased structural integrity and handling with fewer parts.

Visco-Lok† auto-locking front differential

The Visco-Lok front differential system progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull.

12-inch (30.5 cm) steel wheels / 25-inch (66 cm) tires

Wrapped in 25-in. Carlisle Trail Wolf Tires, the 12-inch steel wheels on the Outlander L provide rugged performance in tough terrain and changing conditions. A bigger tire design helps you easily overcome obstacles as you ride.

214 mm disc brakes

Large 214 mm disc brakes, front and rear, have hydraulic twin-piston calipers for superior stopping power.

 

RIDER-FOCUSED DESIGN

NEW Revised maintenance break-in

The break-in maintenance requirement is no longer necessary on the Outlander vehicles, saving consumers time and money in the long run. The break-in has been revised to one year (1,500 km / 932 miles) from 10 hours (300 km / 186 miles).

Easy-to-use maintenance center

Easily accessible and out of the elements under the seat, a centralized maintenance area offers easier access and improved protection. The rear brake fluid reservoir, solenoid starter, battery and relays are also conveniently located under the seat.

Genuine accessories add versatility

No matter the chore or destination, the Outlander L is ready for the challenge. With a large range of accessories and versatile LinQ rack system, it’s purpose-built with the rider in mind. Customize it for your specific needs, for both work and play, and enjoy.

Steel racks with LinQ™ quick-attach accessory system

The Outlander L models have front and rear steel racks. Due to its slightly shorter stance and steel racks, the Outlander L vehicles offer the rider improved sight lines while driving without a front loaded rack. The integrated LinQ quick-attach accessory system offers convenient and adaptable cargo hauling capabilities and works with numerous Can-Am rack accessories.

360-pound (163 kg) combined rack capacity

The Outlander L ATVs are made to work, with 360-pound (163 kg) combined rack capacity. They can tote up to 120 pounds (54 kg) up front and another 240 pounds (109 kg) on the rear rack.

2.9-gallon (10.9 L) water-resistant rear storage compartment

The Outlander L models have a convenient, 2.9-gallon (10.9 L) water-resistant rear storage compartment located on the rear rack.

400-W Magneto

This package provides a 400-W magneto, enough to power accessories like extra lights or heated grips.

Multi-function digital gauge

Tells the rider everything in one easy glance. Our easy-to-read multi-function gauge is equipped with a digital information center, including a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meter, gear position, hour meter, engine hour meter, temperature and engine lights, fuel gauge and clock.

70-W lighting

Equipped with dual 35-W front headlights, with selectable high and low beams, for superb visual clarity.

Large 5.4-gallon (20.5 L) Fuel Tank

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

NEW Available Colors

Choose between an all-new Green and Viper Red for base (non DPS) models.

CAN-AM OUTLANDER L MAX 570 / OUTLANDER L MAX 450

2016 Outlander L MAX 570 Viper Red_3-4 front_tif

 

The Outlander L MAX vehicles again offer the same segment-leading engine choices, chassis and suspension as the single-rider ATVs, but they also have their own unique two-rider features like a longer wheelbase, passenger-specific ergonomics, convertible seating system and more. For 2016, the base Outlander L MAX is available with Viper Red plastic.

Dynamic Passenger Comfort (DPC™)

The Outlander L MAX ATVs have passenger-influenced ergonomics to produce a comfortable and consumer-friendly two-rider vehicle. DPC ergonomics means comfortable seating, cushioned ride and placing the passenger in an optimal riding position. The seating system allows for gradual bending of the backrest and pivoting to reduce kick back during acceleration / braking and well as offering engineered enhancements like regressive flex and formed grooves for improved comfort.

Passenger handholds

The angled rear passenger handle position allows for flex while riding and also reduces the overall impact to the passenger’s hands. The handles also allow for numerous hand positions to enhance the passenger’s riding experience and comfort level. For one-up use, the rear seat has integrated handles that don’t limit rear rack space or prohibit single-rider comfort.

Passenger footrest

All MAX models with the G2 SST frame have foot peg angles and depth that cater to the rear passenger. The footrests also have a third row of foot grips to improve lateral grip.

Convertible Rack System (CRS™)

The Outlander L MAX is the lone two-up ATV that comes standard with a Convertible Rack System (CRS) for transforming the ATV into a single-rider machine. Transitioning from one-up to a two-rider vehicle takes only seconds and eliminates the touring look and feel when riding alone. The fact that the passenger handholds are attached to the seat means they don’t inhibit rider movement or take up rear rack space.

An optional storage box is available.

Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering

Visco-Lok QE front differential

The Can-Am Visco-Lok QE system is one of the most consumer friendly designs on the market, as the progressively and automatically locking front differential system requires no additional buttons to push or levers to hold. Once 4×4 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 QE version progressively transfers the power even quicker.

12-inch, cast-aluminum wheels with centre-less design

Centre-less 12-in (30.5 cm) cast-aluminum wheels offer a stylish, unique look and reduced weight but improved strength in strategic areas. Dressed with 25-inch (66 cm) Carlisle Trail Wolf tires.
