Can-Am adds an extra pair of wheels to the Outlander ATV

•, By C.C. Weiss
 Six drive wheels provide the formula behind the new Can-Am Outlander 6x6 1000 XT work and recreation vehicle. The extra axle sits below a rear bed, creating a workhorse that can haul and speed with a full half-dozen clawing wheels.

The Outlander 6x6 was designed to offer "industry-leading power and capacity" in a "no-compromise utility ATV application." It routes output from the 82-hp Rotax V-Twin 1000 engine to all six wheels, muscling up slippery dirt hills, through sticky mud fields, over rugged rock gardens, and more. With the help of the CVT's extra low gear, the Outlander six-pack pulls 1,650 lb (750 kg) worth of tow load along for the ride.

The Oulander 6x6 looks like a typical four-wheeler up front, up until your eyes wander to the rear cargo bed supported by the extra wheels. The bed delivers 700 lb (318 kg) of rear cargo capacity to go with 100 lb (45 kg) on the front rack. The bed has a dual-level design and includes tilt-assisted dumping. A modular attachment system lets the driver transform the bed into different configurations using components like sidewalls, log bars and cargo boxes.
