2013 Can-Am Commander 1000 X Updates:
Dynamic Power Steering - The Dynamic Power
Steering (DPS) system is now available on all Can-Am Commander
XT, X and Limited packages — for both the 800R and 976cc Rotax
EFI powerplants — for 2013. Featuring specially calibrated
settings for use in the Commander, DPS selects the appropriate
amount of steering assistance for the current terrain
conditions. DPS also includes
the Quicker-Engaging (QE) Visco-Lok front differential to
improve the Commander side-by-side’s traction and abilities in
slow-speed, technical terrain. The DPS used in the Commander
models offers variable steering assistance and is engineered to
offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed.
Commander DPS models
For 2013, the budget-friendly Commander 1000 DPS and 800R DPS
models include power steering with Visco-Lok QE.
Also, yellow plastic and 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 on 14-inch
cast aluminum wheels will also set the DPS models apart.
2013 Commander color options
Commander 800R and 1000 X models’ color themes have been
updated for the new model year. The 800R is dressed in a
redesigned yellow, black and white color schematic. The
Commander 1000 X will also be available in the same updated
color, but will also come in an exclusive finish. To better
announce its position in the Can-Am family as the performance
king, the Commander 1000 X wears a striking Carbon Black,
carbon-fiber finish to enhance its X package features.
New for 2013 is the White Pearl painted plastic for the
luxurious Can-Am Commander 1000 Limited. Designed to provide
improved scratch resistance, the new brighter white finish
offers the perfect complement to the darker Pure Magnesium
finish, which was carried over from last year.
For 2013, all standard
Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicles will now be available
in red, as opposed to yellow. They will also be outfitted with
new carbon-colored 12-inch steel wheels.
Can-Am enters the UTV market with a bang and their
top-of-the-line Commander 1000 X is and incredible side x side vehicle right
from the factory. With and industry leading 85 HP, Fox Racing Shox 2.0 RC2
shocks and beadlock wheels, it is ready to rip through the desert, dunes or
rocks as it sits.
I was lucky enough to get to chances to drive the
Can-Am Commander 1000 X before it was introduced to the public on
June 8, 2010. Once at
Sand Dunes and then in Montreal for the Media Intro.

side-by-side engine in the industry* with 85 HP. The liquid-cooled,
single overhead cam power plant features four valves per cylinder
and is fed by a 54mm Bosch‡ throttle body and two VDO Seimens‡ fuel

Front and rear Fox Racing Shox HPG piggyback shocks //
aluminum piggyback shocks built by
Fox Racing Shox are fully
adjustable with high- and low-speed compression, high- and low-speed
rebound and multi-position preload adjustment. Both front and rear
shocks have 10 inches (25 cm) of travel. With advanced high- and
low-speed tuning available, one can dial in suspension performance to
their preference. The large-diameter design and piggyback construction
help dissipate heat.
Front sway bar // The 5/8-inch (1.6 cm) front sway
bar helps reduce body roll in aggressive cornering enhancing the
handling of the Can-Am Commander 1000 X.
12-inch Aluminum beadlock wheels // Aluminum
beadlock wheels mean added performance under heavy acceleration and
cornering. A Can-Am exclusive design clamps the tire bead securely to
the Commander 1000 X wheel for the ultimate in performance.
26-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires // These rugged
tires feature six-ply radial construction, yet are lightweight to cut
down on unsprung weight. They absorb the terrain for a smooth ride and
have a non-directional pattern to provide predictable cornering and to
claw across roots, rocks and other tough terrain for climbing
Analog/digital gauge // The gauge on the Commander
1000 X has an upgraded gauge on the base model. Featuring
state-of-the-art instrumentation with an analog tachometer and
speedometer combined with an advanced digital information center.
Heavy-duty front bumper // A sleek, heavy-duty front
bumper adds rugged durability to the Can-Am Commander 1000 X and
completes the X-Package look of the side-by-side vehicle.
Rock sliders // Both sides of the vehicle feature
rock sliders that allow the Commander 1000 X to slide against obstacles
like rocks and trees in challenging terrain. This helps keep obstacles
away from the body panels of the vehicle.
Leather steering wheel // A premium leather-wrapped
steering wheel is standard on the Commander 1000 XT.
X Package seat trim and graphics // The
Can-Am Commander 1000 X features a premium X Package look

will certainly impress.
