2016 Can-Am Outlander 6×6 Family

2016.can-am.outlander1000xt-dps-6x6.camo.right.riding.up-hill.jpgWhether it’s for extreme work or recreation, Can-Am has the most diverse 6×6 and ATV lineup in the industry. All Outlander 6×6 vehicles have an additional set of rear wheels, a 3,000-pound (1,360 kg) WARN† winch, an exclusive Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2™) rear suspension (complete with a quick-release sway bar), extra low L gear for work, a Dual-Level cargo box with modular accessories, the largest towing capacity of any Can-Am ATV and much more. For getting the job done, in the toughest of conditions, there’s nothing like the Outlander 6×6 XT 1000 and Outlander 6×6 XT 650. Like the rest of the Can-Am ATV lineup, the Outlander 6×6 vehicles now have the revised one-year (1,500 km / 932 miles) break-in maintenance schedule.



82-hp Rotax V-Twin 1000

A 80º 976cc liquid-cooled Rotax V-Twin power plant is at the core of the Outlander 6×6 XT 1000 and produces an impressive 82 horsepower. With a superb power-to-weight ratio, 65.1 lbs.-ft. of torque and electronic fuel injection (46 mm throttle body), the single overhead cam 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.

UPDATED 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. Returning in 2016, the extra low-gear has a 32% lower ratio than a regular Outlander, offering an unmatched comfort for low-speed riding and an exceptional and smooth traction when pulling heavy loads.

Relocated air intakes2016.can-am.outlander1000xt-dps-6x6-flatbed.camo_.front-right.studio.jpgThe engine’s air intake and CVT inlets have been positioned as high as possible on the Outlander 6×6 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)

Calibrated specifically for aggressive trail riding and racing, the Tri-Mode DPS system features three modes (MIN, MED and MAX) allowing riders to select the desired amount of steering assist for the terrain and conditions.

12-inch cast-aluminum wheels


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

Double Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI2) rear suspension

The Outlander 6×6 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 6×6 offers both 4×6 and 6×6 with its Visco-Lok QE. In 4×6 mode, all four rear wheels provide traction. Once 6×6 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 clearance2016.can-am.outlander1000xt-dps-6x6.camo_.rear-left.studio.jpg

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

Surrounding Spar Technology (SST) G2 Frame

The Outlander 6×6 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 2016 Outlander 6×6 XT features four outboard 214mm hydraulic disc brakes with twin-piston calipers, front and rear, for superior stopping power.2016.can-am.outlander1000xt-dps-6x6.camo_.front-right.studio.jpg

26-inch Carlisle ACT Radial tires

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

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.


NEW Revised maintenance break-in

The break-in maintenance requirement is no longer necessary on the Outlander 6×6 vehicles, saving consumers time and money in the long run. The break-in has been revised to one year (1,500 km / 932 miles) from 10 hours (300 km / 186 miles).

Easy-to-use maintenance center2016.can-am.outlander650xt-dps-6x6-flatbed.camo_.front-right.studio.jpg

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 6×6 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 6×6 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 6×6 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 gauge2016.can-am.outlander650dps-6x6-flatbed.yellow.front-right.studio.jpg
