Description

These are the side-by-side vehicles that created a new industry standard – because they were built with Can-Am DNA. Every Commander features either the 85-hp Rotax 1000 or the 71-hp Rotax 800R engine. That best-in-class power is controlled by precision-engineered handling and, new on 2013 models, Dynamic Power Steering (DPS). Consider, too, these vehicles include numerous features designed around the driver and passenger, plus that distinct Can-Am look. Ride one and you'll know why the Commander redefined the side-by-side industry.
