The Can-Am Outlander 6x6 family of six-wheeled ATVs is at the top of its class when it comes to conquering tough work and challenging terrain. The Outlander 6x6 vehicles have an additional set of rear wheels, and an exclusive Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2™) rear suspension (complete with a quick-release sway bar). For tackling tough chores, the ATVs have an extra low L gear, Dual-Level cargo box with modular accessories and the largest towing capacity of any Can-Am ATV. 


82-hp Rotax V-Twin 1000
An 80º 976cc liquid-cooled Rotax V-Twin power plant is at the core of the Outlander 6x6 XT 1000 and produces an impressive 82 horsepower. With a superb power-to-weight ratio, 65.1 lb.-ft. of torque and electronic fuel injection (46 mm throttle body), the DOHC engine is as efficient and strong. Regardless of temperature or altitude, EFI ensures optimal performance from the engine at all times. Despite its hearty performance levels, the eight-valve engine remains controllable and offers useable power for a wide array of riders and situations.

CVT transmission with extra-low L gear
The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) means no shifting is required. The system includes standard engine braking, high, low, park, neutral and reverse. The CVT housing has 13 bolts to ensure a proper seal and also includes an integrated drain plug. The extra-low gear provides unmatched comfort for low-speed riding and an exceptional and smooth traction when pulling heavy loads.

Relocated air intakes
The engine’s air intake and CVT inlets have been positioned as high as possible on the Outlander 6x6 to improve breathing while navigating wet and muddy conditions.

Dual-room, no-tools air box
A no-tools air box is placed at a higher and more centralized location for filtering and processing air. A dual-room air filtration design 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.

Large radiator
The large, efficient radiator offers up to 27 kW of cooling capacity to keep the engine running cool for optimal performance.

Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)
The Tri-Mode DPS system features three modes (MIN, MED and MAX) allowing riders to select the desired amount of steering assist to adjust to the terrain requirements and to his riding style. All modes offer less assist at high speed to keep maximum steering feel to the rider and more assist at low speed to reduce steering effort.

12-inch cast-aluminum wheels
The stylish, painted black 12-inch cast-aluminum wheels have a computer-optimized configuration that increases strength in critical areas while removing unnecessary weight from other sections of the wheels.

26-inch Carlisle ACT Radial tires
Proven 26-inch ACT Radial tires from Carlisle provide a smoother ride and better shock absorption.

Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2) rear suspension
The Outlander 6x6 vehicles use an industry-exclusive, four-wheel independent rear suspension that eliminates scrub and camber changes. The wheels pivot up and down rather than in a butterfly motion. This ensures the vehicle moves only in the direction you point it and is designed to improve traction and optimize transfer of power to the ground. Offering a five-way preload adjustable shocks and 9.3 inches (23.6 cm) of suspension travel, it can soak up rough terrain while keeping the rider comfortable and focused on the trail.

Visco-Lok QE auto-locking front differential
For situations that require optimal traction and as much contact with the terrain at hand, the Outlander 6x6 offers both 4x6 and 6x6 with its Visco-Lok QE. In 4x6 mode, all four rear wheels provide traction. Once 6x6 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 system progressively and automatically locks and requires no additional buttons to push or levers to hold.

Double A-arm front suspension with dive-control geometry
The front suspension features a dive-control, a short spindle, along with anti-kickback geometry to provide a better steering. Front-end suspension travel is 9 inches (22.9 cm) for improved trail comfort. Five-way preload shocks offer more than an inch of additional suspension travel.

11-inch ground clearance
When combined with its impressive suspension travel, Visco-Lok QE and true 6x6 capabilities, the 11-inch ground clearance on the Outlander 6x6 makes conquering rugged terrain a snap.

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 Frame
The Outlander 6x6 uses the industry-exclusive Surround Spar Technology (SST) second-generation frame. Featuring an 82-inch wheelbase, the frame offers delicate balance of structural integrity, durability and handling.

Quick-release sway bar
With its integrated Quick-Release Sway Bar, owners can adjust the amount of articulation from the rear TTI to improve the ride for both heavy loads or when unloaded.

214 mm disc brakes with twin-piston calipers
The 2017 Outlander 6x6 XT features four outboard 214mm hydraulic disc brakes with twin-piston calipers, front and rear, for superior stopping power.

Standard skid plate
The high-strength skid plate is made from proven materials and is designed for supreme protection and has the ability to slide over certain obstacles.

One-year maintenance break-in
With zero break-in maintenance required and a yearly maintenance schedule, the Outlander ATVs reduce total maintenance costs to the buyer. The yearly advised maintenance is 932 miles (1,500 km).

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.

Dual-Level™ cargo box with modular accessories
This unique cargo box features dual storage levels, 700-pound (318 kg) of total capacity and tilt-assist dumping. It can adapt to your needs with its standard side panels that are easily removable allowing it to transform to a flatbed in seconds or with the available options like the enclosed storage, log bars, tailgate extension and more.

3,000-pound WARN winch
WARN is a highly respected name in the off-road industry and the Outlander 6x6 XT features a 3,000-pound (1,360 kg) Warn winch with roller fairlead.

Multi-function front rack with LinQ quick-attach accessory system
The rack, with a 100-pound (45 kg) capacity, has an anti-skid surface and elevated ridges to keep gear in position. Multiple tie-down points, holes and predetermined “cutouts” for LinQ accessories makes for a convenient setup. Add available rack extension or modular storage bags in seconds.

Heavy-duty front bumper
For an edgier and more rugged trim, the XT models include a heavy-duty front bumper.

625-W magneto
The Outlander 6x6 XT sports the most powerful magneto in the industry, at 625 watts, which means more amps for powering accessories. 

1,650-pound towing capacity
Fully equipped to move a load, the Outlander 6x6 has a 2-in. (5 cm) receiver hitch and a 1,650-pound (750 kg) towing capacity that comes standard.

230-W headlights
The most lighting output of any ATV in the industry, these headlights honor the Can-Am heritage while offering enhanced visibility
for trail riding. On high beam, the twin 60-W projectors and dual 55-W reflectors give the Outlander 230 W of visual clarity.

Large 5.4-gallon (20.5L) fuel tank
The Outlander has a capacity of 5.4 gallons (20.5 liters), which means one can ride longer and work harder.

Multi-function digital gauge
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, 6x6 indicator and clock.

Radio Frequency (RF) Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.™)
The new RF D.E.S.S. has been improved and redesigned on all Outlander ATVs. Each ATV includes both a performance key and regular key. This revised setup also aligns with this current proven technology in other BRP brands. Can-Am is the only manufacturer to offer a factory-installed anti-theft device as standard equipment.

Handlebar wind deflectors
Wind deflectors provide improved protection from brush and cold weather and also offer a distinguished look.

Stylish design
The 2017 Outlander 6x6 XT 1000 features a style that mimics the four-wheeled Outlander ATVs and could be described as aggressive sophistication. Its muscular facade includes a more seamless makeup and less apparent fasteners for a cleaner look.

Colors available
The Outlander 6x6 XT 1000 comes exclusively in the premium water-dipped Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo plastic, giving it excellent concealment and instant appeal to the outdoor enthusiast.
