The XT badge brings better equipment for the 2011 Can-Am Outlander 500: triple-mode dynamic power steering, cast aluminium wheels, heavy-duty front and rear bumpers, and the optional cool camo finish. On the functionality side, the 2011 Can-Am Outlander 500 XT delivers top performance in all conditions, whether used as a work-related ATV, or as a vehicle for weekends and adventures in the wild.
Selectable 2/4 WD and high/low ratios are convenient features to adapt the power delivery to the rigors of the terrain, with the automatic transmission making things even easier. Auto-locking front differential and engine braking offer a great advantage when climbing or descending steep gradients, respectively, while spacious luggage racks allow the rider to haul quite a lot of gear. And if these don't get you out of trouble, there's the powerful 3000-lbs WARN winch, too.
