Features

D.E.S.S. Safe

  • ANTI-THEFT PROTECTION: Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.™) Keys Get top-security anti-theft protection. Our encrypted chip technology allow you to reprogram your key for learner use. A unique code restricting access to your Commander’s electronic ignition system.

Display

  • TRIP INFO AT YOUR FINGERTIPS: The 4.5 and 7.6 in. wide digital displays with keypad feature all-important trip information that's readable in all conditions. Find out your speed, the time, fuel level, engine temperature, mileage and more. 7.6 in. display standard on all XT trims.

DPS

  • GREATER CONTROL: Tri-Mode Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) - The dynamic power steering set-up delivers easy, direct speed-sensitive steering assistance, with more power at lower speeds to reduce steering effort and less at higher speeds for maximum steering feel to the rider.

Driving

  • TRANSMISSION & DRIVE TRAIN: Quick Response System X CVT technology with turf mode. For responsive and reliable all-terrain performance, the Commander uses Quick Response System X (QRS-X) CVT technology with high airflow and Electronic Drive Belt Protection. Driving modes include Turf, 2WD and 4WD with Visco-Lok† QE auto-locking front differential. Commander XT-P is upgraded with Smart-Lok technology featuring performance-focused 4WD Trail and 4WD Trail ACTIV modes.

Inside Look

Comfortable & secure bucket seats for up to four riders, adjustable driver's seat, wider opening doors, tilt steering wheel, full skid-place, premium half-door, plus a sport roof on the XT and XT-P.

Multipurpose

  • ACCESSORIES THAT COUNT: Easily add or swap accessories for any adventure under the sun (or moon!) Fight with straps and ropes? No way: keep bed cargo securely in place with built-in LinQ mounting points. This also means standard side cargo box storage, & high-powered 650W magneto for electrical upgrades--stereo, lighting, plows, and more.

Powertrain
