For 2010, Canadian powerhouse Bombardier recreational Products (BRP) is launching the Can-Am Outlander Max LTD, equipped with an Air Control Suspension (ACS) at the back and dual-mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS), two industry firsts. Can-Am is also offering a new, sportier version of the Outlander (The XT-P), a more sophisticated Renegade 800 EFI X xc, and an improved DS 450.
Outlander XT-P and Max LTD
Riders can select from six preload levels for the rear air suspension of the Outlander Max LTD, according to load, terrain and personal preference. In addition, the compressor used to pump up the springs can also be used to inflate the tires, an added bonus that could well prove a life-saver one of these days.

The new models also inherit the first power steering system ever fitted on a BRP quad – finally! The “Dynamic Power Steering” (DPS) features two rider-selectable levels of power assistance; an exclusive feature from Can-Am. DPS also diminishes kickback through the handlebar when a front wheel hits an obstacle, thus preserving rider comfort and increasing ease of use. The DPS system is fitted on the 500, 650 and 800 EFI XT-P
models, as well as the Max XT-P and Max LTD.
For 2010, all DPS-equipped models also feature the new “Visco-Lok QE” front differential, which reacts faster when wheel spin is detected, hence the “Quick Engage” moniker.
Renegade 800 EFI X xc
The Renegade models already featured fully independent suspensions (double A-arm setup in front, swing arm at the rear) and the extensive aluminum floorboards. The new Renegade 800 EFI X xc (Cross Country) model improves on this by adding the DPS system and the Visco-Lok QE front differential, as well as a front sway bar, another industry first. The bar reduces body roll in corners, without having to resort to stiffer front springs that would unduly stiffen the ride over bumps.
