2013 Can-Am Commander Lineup

2013 Can-Am Commander 1000 X

Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) – Calibrated specifically for use in the Commander side-by-side, BRP’s DPS system offers variable steering assistance and is designed to offer less assist at high speed and more assist at low speed. This technology also includes a Direct Link setup that uses advanced magnetic field sensors for faster response to steering input than competitive technology, which then minimizes steering lag. Less kickback and more trail feedback is supplied to the operator because of the 50:1 final gear ratio, which is the largest in the industry. A high-capacity 50-amp motor means the DPS will never fade with heavy use and all DPS-equipped models also come with the Visco-Lok QE.

Visco-Lok QE
– All DPS-equipped models come with the Visco-Lok QE calibration giving an even quicker engagement of the front differential. It progressively transfers power from a slipping front wheel to the gripping one – automatically with no buttons to push or levers to pull. Plus, there’s no wheel hop or driveline wind-up so the system is totally transparent to the driver and extremely easy to steer. Can lock up to 100 percent with no rev or speed limiter. This differential, unlike some competitor’s differentials, does not have a speed or rev limiter. DPS and Visco-Lok QE, when, combined, improve handling and performance in slow-speed technical terrain.

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.

Commander color options
The 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.
