2012 Can-Am Renegade 1000 EFI 4x4 Sport-Utility ATV


Featuring an EFI-fed, 976cc V-Twin power plant, next-generation chassis, improved suspension and enhanced ergonomics, BRP’s Can-Am Renegade 1000 is now, even more so, the king of the sport 4x4 category. The machine’s unique blend of sport and utility trail manners along with its superb power-to-weight ratio and acceleration makes it the most impressive 4x4 ATV on the planet.

Using Computer-aided Vehicle Dynamics (CAVD) software, Can-Am engineers took an innovative approach to all aspects of the chassis of this new-generation Renegade ATV. The goal, bring the knowledge of new-wave geometries gained through years of testing that would challenge traditional thinking in the off-road world. The result are principles of design we call Geometric Contact Control. This allows the chassis of the next-generation Renegade to perform at the top of the sport 4x4 world, yet enhance the overall comfort of the vehicle at all levels of riding.
