The original Can-Am Commander was first introduced back in 2011 and had a 10 year run before Can-Am completely redesigned it for 2021.
The Commander is a rec-utility vehicle meaning it slots in between a utility vehicle like the Can-Am Defender and a sport UTV like the Can-Am Maverick X3. It is literally designed to be the Swiss army knife of UTVs that can do it all – from hauling firewood to trail riding to sand dunes and even rock crawling.
The 2021 Can-Am Commander XT-P has a naturally aspirated Rotax 976cc v-twin engine with 100 horsepower.
It is 64 inches wide, has a 90.6 inch wheelbase, 13.5 inches of ground clearance and 14 inches of suspension travel.
The Commander XT-P model also comes with 30-inch tires, a 4500 pound winch, heavy duty front bumper, roof, 2.5 inch FOX QS3 shocks, a 7.8 inch display and a Smart Lok front differential.
2021 Can-Am Commander XT-P 1000R
In the six months that we have had our Commander XT-P, we have put it through its paces in a variety of terrain to see if it is as versatile and it appears. From trail rides, to rock crawling. From hauling firewood to playing in the sand dunes and everything in between, the Commander XT-P outperformed our expectations at every turn.
We figured the best way to illustrate the versatility of the Commander XT-P was to show you what we’ve been using it for during the last six month. Take a look and let us know what you think.
The 2021 Can-Am Commander really can do it all and as you can see in the video above, we really have used it in a wide variety of terrain.
