The Outlander PRO HD7 and HD5 are built for the ones who have to get things done, they haul, they tow, and they can store more than any other ATV on the market. For 2023, the new Outlander PRO utility lineup includes the standard PRO models, PRO XU, and PRO Hunting Edition.
An all-new rear facing 650cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected Rotax Advanced Combustion Efficiency (ACE) four-stroke engine design and configuration are complemented by a new integrated transmission design and pDrive clutch, all of which give the new Outlander platform class leading power and towing capabilities. Thanks to ECU calibration and different camshaft designs, the 700 and PRO HD7 models have 50-horsepower and 41 ft-lb of torque, while the 500 and PRO HD5 models have 40-horsepower and 37 ft-lb of torque.
All Outlander 500 and 700 machines are equipped with the new pDrive primary CVT transmission for smoother shifting, increased durability and feature L/H/N/R/P gearing. The Outlander PRO HD5 and HD7 machines are equipped with a new pDrive primary CVT transmission that also features work calibration along with Extra L/H/N/R/P gearing. Both the Outlander and Outlander PRO platforms share a selectable 2WD / 4WD with Visco-Lok, Visco-Lok QE or Visco-4Lok with auto-locking front differential drivetrain offered according to the packages.
A new tubular steel chassis design derived from the Can-Am Maverick X3 platform, front and rear arched A-Arm suspension configuration are what have given the new Outlander and Outlander PRO platforms the class-leading suspension travel and ground clearance. Both the recreational and utility models are equipped with 9.75 of double A-Arm front suspension travel with twin tube shocks upfront, and with 10.25 in the rear. The PRO models feature stiffer suspension tuning to allow for working conditions and heavier payloads. The combination of the chassis and suspension design create the unrivaled ground clearance, handling, and stability of the new Outlander platform, with up to 13 of ground clearance on certain models.

Riders will immediately notice the increased knee room and more spacious floorboards that improve handling and increase stability.

Complementing the new pDrive primary CVT transmission is a more ergonomically friendly shift lever with a smoother grip and refined shifting experience.
