2012 Can-Am Commander Limited

BRP’s luxurious Commander 1000 Limited offers the most style and prestige of any Can-Am side-by-side, and any side-by side in the industry. Add in the new 85-horsepower 976cc Rotax engine plus other premium upgrades and this Commander is truly supreme. We also took comfort and convenience to the next level with the 1000 Limited by adding proven accessories — WARN® winch, Garmin® GPS, Air-Control Fox Racing Shox® — so your side-by-side not only looks good, but performs to your strict standards.

BRP doesn’t stop there, however. Out of the box, the Commander Limited also comes with a premium sound system complete with four speakers, AM/FM weather-resistant stereo, portable music player (including the iPod) integration, USB port and an auxiliary input. Ride in style and entertain as the Limited will be the center of attention.

Improved Performance

The Rotax 1000 80º V-twin is the most powerful rec-utility side-by-side engine in the industry. The 85-horsepower, 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 injectors. A throttle-by-wire system works in conjunction with the throttle body to produce smooth throttle delivery even if one’s foot is bouncing due to the terrain.

Can-Am engineers and designers outfitted our Commander 1000 Limited with a premier Air Control System and top of the line Fox Racing Shox-built high-pressure gas shocks. The shocks, which are tunable, can supply 10 inches (25.4cm) of suspension travel in both the front and rear. The Air Control Suspension has six pre-set custom suspension levels to tune the high-pressure gas shocks for load hauling and trail conditions. Simply select the desired amount of preload pressure (1 through 6) via the LCD display and gauge and get to work. An air hose that attaches to the compressor is included so you can add air to tires during a trail ride.

All the Extras

Equipped with a two-piece hard roof, a half windshield, heavy-duty front bumper, rear netting, mudguards, full sized removable and fully adjustable seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and exclusive color options, the Can-Am Commander 1000 Limited sacrifices nothing in performance, comfort, or style.

But that’s not all that comes with the Limited package. BRP chose a premium 4,000-pound Warn winch kit for the ultimate in performance and durability. Well respected in the off-road community, the WARN winch kit includes a roller fairlead, wired remote control and integrated winch remote storage.

Cargo box rails provide additional locations to attach tie-downs for cargo carrying. The Commander Limited features the Can-Am’s industry-exclusive dual-level cargo box with two levels separated by a removable, water-tight panel. It offers the possibility to have an upper and a lower bed with an independent tailgate. The box has a 600-pound (272kg) total carrying capacity (400 lbs. upper; 200 lbs. lower) and has the most volume capacity in the market.

Can-Am added a premium Garmin Montana 650t touch-screen Global Positioning System (GPS) to make exploration more enjoyable and simpler. It offers a fully interactive program and a full-color screen to enhance your experience.

    The limited looks outstanding. What is the price and when will they be adding power steering. Seems like an easy add-on since the quads have them. Keep up the great work. Thank you

    Where is the list of add on items, exterior lighting, interior LED, is a heater ever going to be an after market item ? Liquid cooled engine, what about a heater some day? Cold in the winter on the high plains.

    Great machine, but why didn’t they add a parking brake. Can’t always find a flat area to park on.
