Winning Hunting ATV the Year is a true honor - and this year, judges at ATV.com gave that award to the 2019 Outlander Mossy Oak Hunting Edition 1000R. Now you’re wondering: what made it their first pick?
“What pushed the Can-Am to the top is a combination of advancements made to the entire Outlander series for 2019,” writes ATV.com’s Derrek Sigler. “This includes a horsepower increase for the 1000R engine, new arched front A-arms for increased ground clearance, and of course, the styling.”
The Outlander has pure, raw power to handle anything, but ATV.com notes its usefulness for hunters with an increased towing capacity up to 1,650 lbs., enough to haul everything needed for a hunting camp using its 2-inch receiver hitch.
If the track gets mucky or the hunt is a success, ATV.com mentions its versatile 3,000-pound Warn winch is a must-have for recovery or retrieving game.
The hunting-specific upgrades included in the Mossy Oak Hunting Edition impressed judges the most, however: “On just the base machine alone, the Can-Am impresses as a hunting rig, but when you add in the hunting package created for this machine, it is amazing.”
