New Outlander L 450 and Outlander L 500 models
Additions to the vehicle line-up and improvements in 2015
VALCOURT, QC, May 1, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - BRP expands its line of Can-Am
all-terrain vehicles (ATV) with the new category-challenging 2015
Outlander L and Outlander L MAX models, the Outlander 6x6 ATV and the
reintroduced Outlander 800R X mr model. Along with the new models, the
Can-Am ATV and side-by-side vehicle line-ups also feature vibrant
colour choices and other refinements.
"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."
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 6x6 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
