Key package features
The Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) offers three level of rider-adjustable steering assistance that can be adapted to match the terrain while also reducing kickback to the steering.
214-mm Ventilated Disc Brakes with Twin-Piston Calipers
SUPERIOR STOPPING POWER
Outboard disc brakes with 214-mm discs and twin-piston calipers. Large 214-mm outboard hydraulic disc brakes feature twin-piston calipers to provide superb stopping power.
Torsional Trailing Arm Independent (TTI) Rear Suspension
ELIMINATES SCRUB AND CAMBER CHANGES
The only independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes, meaning the wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion. This ensures the vehicle moves only in the direction you point it. Reconfigured for improved traction and optimal transfer of power to the ground.
Double A-Arm Front Suspension with Dive-Control
BETTER STEERING FEEL
The Can-Am Commander's Double A-arm front suspension is designed with dive-control geometry that works to eliminate diving under heavy breaking and rough terrain. The front end features 10 in of travel and five-way preload-adjustable motion-control shocks.
Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
The electronically controlled power steering provides the driver with three different levels of assistance when steering. The amount of assistance varies with the vehicle's speed to adjust the steering input effort to a comfortable level. Features Visco-Lok QE for a faster engagement point.
Visco-Lok† QE Auto-Locking Front Differential
All DPS-equipped models have Visco-Lok† QE, which has all the features and benefits of the standard quick-engagement Visco-Lok† differential, but with an even quicker engagement point. This differential, unlike some competitors' differentials, does not have a speed limiter.
