Product Review: 2024 Outlander (ATV)

The gorgeous winter day is bright; the sky is bright blue, snow covered mountains can be seen in the distance. There is a trail of groomed snow through the forest ready for the ATV enthusiast to hit the trail!

Whether you love spending the day exploring trails with your local ATV club or want to put your vehicle to work on your property, the 2024 Outlander offers an affordable and surprisingly fun option. This 2024 ATV debuted a new pair of upgraded engines, producing more excitement on the trail without overloading the machine with tech toys. From a first ride for your growing teen to a rugged investment for a seasoned rider, this is a great choice.

Specs and Capabilities to Consider

This year saw the introduction of the 850 and 1000 Rotax V-twin engines, upping available horsepower from a reasonable but unexciting 52 hp on the 2023 model to 78 up to 91 for 2024. With available power steering, a continuously variable transmission, and optional electronic engine braking, an ATV delivers a confident and capable ride over many terrains.

If you are packing for a weekend camping trip, you can tow up to 750 kilograms. That's enough to bring along all your desired coolers, firewood, and generators. The standard front rack carries 45 kg, and the rear accommodates 90 kilograms.

Add the winch and be prepared to pull your friends out of the mud with a 1,588 kg capacity. Choose one with a 27.9-cm ground clearance and clamber over rocky trails without hesitation. The standard suspension works well for the novice rider, but the available Fox shocks help you easily power over hills and land.

Priced for Weekend Adventures

Perhaps the most appealing part of the Outlander line from Can-am is that you won't break the bank on your first ATV. MSRP for the entry-level package runs at $10,849, which gives you plenty of muscle and ability. If you want all the bells and whistles, the Limited tops out at around $17,000.
