In the 2011 model lineup, BRP has delivered a sporty new side-by-side that is definite to be the talk of the industry for quite some time – the Can Am Commander. To appeal to as many consumers as possible, the Can Am Commander is being made available with two different V-Twin engines. The Commander 800 features a 71-horsepower Rotax 800 EFI, while an 83-horsepower Rotax 1000 EFI powers the Commander 1000. BRP has big expectations for its new side-by-side, with the Commander 800 available in two different packages, while consumers can choose between three different Commander 1000 models.

Engine: according to BRP, the Rotax 800 EFI engine is the most powerful side-by-side mill under 1000cc in the industry, while the Rotax 1000 EFI V-Twin is purported to be the most powerful engine in any side-by-side. Each features electronic fuel injection and BRP claims that both offer class-leading fuel economy.

Suspension; up front the Can Am Commander is cushioned by double A-arm independent suspension with dive-control geometry, which is designed to eliminate diving under heavy braking and rough terrain. This system is designed to provide excellent control, especially in rough terrain. Wheels move rearward as they move up and down to produce a smoother ride. Plus, TTI has up to 75 percent fewer parts than competitive designs and should reduce tire wear significantly. Out back you’ll find Torsional Trailing Arm Independent (TTI) Rear Suspension, which BRP says was inspired by off-road trophy trucks.

At all four corners you’ll find five-way pre-load adjustable gas shocks the manufacturer says have the largest diameter in the industry (36mm/1.4 in.) and provide 10 inches of suspension travel

More Changes for 2011: beyond the two new models already mentioned, the Outlander family has a few new touches for 2011. The gauge features a new clock function, graphics have been updated, and a new sliver and black painted option is available for XT-P package. The Renegade family also received the new clock function in the gauge, as well as a new white color option, updated graphics, and new graphics package for the Renegade 800R X xc. Finally, the Outlander 800R MAX LTD received a new Metallic Blue painted color.

Other Features: each Commander also comes with a Visco-Lok front differential, which progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to a gripping one automatically. The system can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter. It also requires no switches to flip – simply put it in four-wheel drive and go.

Additionally, the Can Am Commander offers 31.6 liters (nearly 2,000 cubic inches) of cockpit storage, 11 inches of ground clearance, 1,500 pounds of towing capacity, and a 650-watt magneto.
