For the 2012 model year Can-Am is adding a Limited model to their Commander 1000 lineup.  The company refers to the new addition as the “…industry’s first luxury, touring side-by-side.”  The Comander 1000 LTD is similar to the Commander 1000 XT but adds the following package of features:

  • Front and rear Air Control Suspension (ACS) with Fox Racing Shox
  • Two-piece roof
  • Half windshield
  • Rear net
  • Removable Limited seats
  • Custom steering wheel
  • Two premium painted-plastic color options (Pure Magnesium and Orbital Blue)
  • Analog / digital gauge
  • Garmin GPS
  • Sound system with four speakers
The LTD’s suspension offers up to six different preset suspension preload levels selectable via a LCD display.  Other features available across the Commander product line include a 85 hp engine, selectable 2WD/4WD and a dual level cargo box with tilt assist for dumping that can handle 400 lbs up top and 200 lbs below.  Learn more:
Comment:  I would anticipate that we will see more “luxury” UTVs coming into the market moving forward. After adding performance features of on-road vehicles such as electronic fuel injection, I anticipate that they will follow the pattern of both pick-up trucks and SUVs which moved from utilitarian models to those with more comfort, convenience and luxury features. Of course, the slow economic recovery may put a damper on this trend in the short term.
