What’s New at a Glance
For 2016, Can-Am aggressively revised its ATV and side-by-side vehicle line-up by delivering more of what enthusiasts are asking for, including increased power. The performance increase includes three ATV engines and boosting performance of the flagship Maverick 1000R Turbo engine.

Along with additional performance, new specialty vehicle packages join the family in 2016, giving Can-Am its most diverse line-up ever. From the affordable, mud-specific Outlander L 570 X mr ATV and new Maverick 1000R Turbo to the all-new Maverick X rs 1000R Turbo and Mossy Oak Hunting Edition vehicles, Can-Am has vastly expanded its off-road family. On top of that, by improving maintenance break-in procedures across the entire Outlander, Renegade and side-by-side vehicle line-ups, Can-Am has also given owners peace of mind that they are getting class-leading performance and unmatched reliability.

New Engines and Performance
Can-Am engineers, through persistent research and development progress over the last two years, has enhanced 80 percent of the Rotax ATV engine family to reinforce its performance leadership and maintain industry-leading power. Four engines get updated for 2016: the new 570, 850 and 1000R ATV mills, and the revised 131-hp, Rotax 1000R Turbo.

48-hp Rotax 570
Found in the Outlander L and Outlander, the all-new, liquid-cooled, eight-valve 570 Rotax – the only V-Twin engine in its class – supplies 48 horsepower to lead the 500-600cc segment. Larger pistons, longer stroke, and a higher connecting rod created a +2-hp gain, as well as increased low-end torque (+9 percent).

78-hp Rotax 850
The revised 78-hp, liquid-cooled V-Twin Rotax 850 gained 7 hp for 2016, offering the most performance in its class. The new engine offers 9 percent more power and additional torque (+7 percent) and was derived from larger pistons and both a throttle body and engine head from the Can-Am Maverick side-by-side vehicle.

89-hp Rotax 1000R
A revised, liquid-cooled, 976cc, 89-hp Rotax 1000R V-Twin engine is the most powerful ATV engine in the Can-Am family and leads the big-bore market in performance. For 2016, the flagship Rotax 1000R has an additional 7 horsepower (that’s a 9-percent power increase). Can-Am engineers added new pistons and a Can-Am Maverick side-by-side vehicle engine head and throttle body.

131-hp Rotax 1000R Turbo
The industry’s most powerful engine has undergone more significant change since its introduction in the Maverick X ds 1000R Turbo last year. The first factory-installed turbocharger has been revised for 2016 to increase its overall, class-leading performance to 131 horsepower and enhance its torque curves. Adding larger injectors, increasing boost pressure and recalibrating the CVT are some of the significant updates for the new year.

New Revised Maintenance Schedule
Can-Am has made a significant improvement to each off-road vehicle’s maintenance procedure for 2016. The 300km or 200-mile break-in inspection has been replaced by 1,500 km or 1,000 miles, which will effectively reduce ownership costs. The performance-laden Can-Am off-road vehicles remain as reliable as ever but are even easier to maintain.

New Electronic Drive-Belt Protection
The Commander MAX line of side-by-side vehicles comes standard with a CVT transmission with an all-new Electronic Drive Belt Protection. The integrated Electronic Drive Belt Protection offers belt-spotting protection for when a driver is in high gear but should be in low gear. The vehicle will not move and a “LOW GEAR” message will appear on the gauge, alerting the driver. The system is currently available as optional equipment on other Can-Am side-by-side vehicles.
