The 2019 Can-Am Family Of ATVs & UTVs Are OUT!
The 2019 Can-Am Family Of ATVs & UTVs Are OUT!
Recently, approximately 70 Can-Am models were announced to round out their 2019 lineup. With more emphasis put on their quad lineup this year, including a significantly revised Outlander, we are pleasantly surprised with Can-Am’s continued support for all 4-wheel segments.
The Outlander is by far the biggest news of the 2019 model year on the ATV side of things. The Renegade features minor updates that include suspension and engine improvements. As for the side-by-side’s in Can-Am’s lineup, the Maverick X3, Defender, and Commander all receive minor but very functional updates to go along with a couple new color and graphics packages. Because the Maverick Trail was released during the latter part of 2017, it looks as thought that vehicle is a complete carryover for at least this model year unveiling. Can-Am has traditionally held off on releasing completely new models until a little later in the year, so we’ll continue to look for anything new in the coming months.
Outlander ATV Upgrades
The most significantly upgraded ATV in the Can-Am lineup is the Outlander, which comes in both a single seater and a 2-seat MAX version. There are 2 significant upgrades to this vehicle. First, the engine is upgraded in the 1000R version to now be the most powerful ATV offered on the market. In total, 91hp is pumped out of the Rotax V-twin engine. The second significant upgrade is in the suspension department where we find new arched front A-arms, a front sway bar, and torsional trailing arm independent rear suspension. These changes provide extra width and more performance and stability overall. In addition to the motor changes, there are new selectable riding modes, called intelligent Throttle Control, that allow you to tailor the throttle delivery in either mode – Standard, Sport, and Work.
All of these changes lead to the fact that the Outlander can now tow up to 1650 lbs.
The most noticeable change is in the new bodywork with new styling. It’s a menacing look, no doubt about that. Pairing with that new styling are new color ways to further enhance the appearance.
The Outlander 650 and 850 ATVs receive the same updates as the other models, and they come in at a lower price point compared to previous model years. The Outlander 650 retails for $8399 ($400 less than 2019) and the Outlander 850 retails for $8999 ($750 less than 2018). In addition, the Outlander 6x6 family is enhanced with the same suspension updates as the other Outlander models. This includes a new longer wheelbase and a new removable passenger seat in the MAX, 2-passenger layout.
Renegade ATV Upgrades
The Renegade family enjoys some similar changes as the Outlander, including the new 48” wide torsional trailing arm independent rear suspension. In addition to the revised suspension, the Renegade 1000R family will benefit from the enhanced Rotax V-twin engine that churns out 91 horsepower. Similar to the Outlander, this V-twin also has the selectable ride modes (Standard, Sport, and Work).
New colors highlight the bodywork more and add to the aggressive stance of the Renegade. How about that front bumper design?!
Commander SSV Lineup
Two updates are found on the Commander lineup of vehicles. Like the ATV lineup, the Commander 1000R gets the engine upgrade to produce 92 horsepower total. To ensure that we have some fresh styling for the Commander, Can-Am included some fresh color ways on the 2019 models.
Defender SSV Lineup
Leading the way with the changes to the Defender lineup is the fact that all HD8 and HD10 Defender models have the ability to two up to 2500 lbs now. For those of us keeping track, that matches the stout towing capacities of the new Polaris RANGER XP 1000. Impressive! Plus, Can-Am included a 1-year limited warranty standard on all Defender models this year.
The Defender HD8, specifically, gets a new lockable rear differential system along with 27” Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires.
In terms of mud bogging, one of the favorites in the industry is the purpose-built Defender X mr, and this model receives several changes this year. The shocks have a new, larger shock bore for enhanced suspension movement. On the powertrain side of things, both High and Low ranges were enhanced by an overall lower gear ratio, making this vehicle even more capable in the muck. A new lockable rear differential system is also used, along with with total selective modes for dialing in your driving preferences.
We are huge fans of Can-Am’s Smart-Lok front differential technology, and now it is included on the Defender XT-P edition.
Maverick X3 Lineup
While the Maverick X3 lineup isn’t totally revised or updated for this new model year, it does receive some significant upgrades. The X-package on both the 2-seat and 4-seat MAX versions now include the Smart-Lock fully locking front differential. The power steering is revised with an improved high-torque system, which is said to enhance feedback and improve slow speed riding. Several hard parts were also updated on the X3, including the front sway bar linkage and the cover for the ECU.
As with many of the other Can-Am’s released this model year, there are definitely some bold colors in the X3 lineup. How about that gold, silver, and red color way?!

(228.6 cm) wheelbase for ample comfort and control. A new removable passenger seat (MAX configuration) allows for instantaneous and convertible two-up / one-up seating transformations to pass on more convenience and versatility to the owner.

Numerous advances to the Defender utility-recreation side-by-side family delivers resourceful solutions for various off-road undertakings. The addition of a class-leading tow rating — now rated at an industry-leading 2,500-lb. (1,134 kg) for units with the HD8 and HD10 engines and a 1-year limited warranty on all Defender 2019 (USA and Canada) models brings more value and a tougher design to owners.
Defender HD8 now has a standard lockable rear differential system, 27 in. (68.6 cm) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tire. Defender XT CAB and MAX XT CAB vehicles get a revised 12-in. (30.5) ground clearance supply ample traction and additional space for overcoming demanding obstacles.
The specialized, mud-ready Defender X mr is fortified with the industry’s top ground clearance at 15-in. (38.1 cm), suspension travel and shock size, with a new larger shock bore. Engineering revisions reduced the lower ranges for both the HIGH and LOW range, while a new lockable rear differential system, with eight total selective modes, makes the specialty X mr even more capable in and out of the mud. The system is even calibrated to prevent turf tearing. The Defender XT-P package now features Smart-Lok traction system with TRAIL mode for maximum footing in every condition, but especially in slow-speed maneuvering.
