COMPACT DESIGN
UNCOMPROMISED CONTROL

The Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension keeps the Outlander’s wheels moving straight up and down, eliminating scrub and camber change. Competitive suspension systems cause the wheels to move in a butterfly motion over bumpy terrain, reducing tire-to-ground contact. But the Outlander remains predictable, giving you better all around control.

TERRAIN

Not all traction systems are created equal. Can-Am Visco-Lok is an automatic locking front differential system that allows you to easily transfer power from a slipping front wheel to the opposite wheel with traction. So you can overcome just about any obstacle you meet along the way, without thinking about it, unlike some competitor models.
