Do some research. In 2015 I believe I read that the Outlander 1000's are now getting the SMALLER transmission from the 800's to save money!
Might be fine, but not a nice thing BRP decided to do!

Toughest? Not sure how to answer that accurately because they are hands down the highest horsepower quads and that breaks parts in itself.

If you want a tough Quad, a Honda looks tough because it only has to manage 1/3 of the HP the Can am has.

If you drive realistic, the Can-am is durable, but most guys buy the big HP Can-ams to throw huge mud tires on them and then they snap all kinds of driveline parts from the stress and HP.

+1 what Deadman said........alot of it is how you maintain & use it, I don't beat the hell out of mine, probably baby it more than a lot of people, I came from a Grizzly & they're tough!

I would go for the 800 outlander
yes a little less hp, but the 800s still have plenty of power, the 800s weigh less, same top speed and just a little bit cheaper

Ya, I sure wouldn't want an 800 when the 1,000 is offered!

If you aren't going crazy with it, you will be fine. I have 1,500 hard trail miles on my Renegade 1000 XXC and all I really did maintenance wise was replace the rear sway bar bushings and rear brake pads. Those 2 issues are known minor fixes.

brake pads, control arm bushings, all the rear sway bar bushings and mounts, shock bushings, steering stem spherical bushings, balljoints, tie rods and a radiator fan motor.

I love my Rene! Nothing I've had before compares to it, no complaints here, puts a smile on my face every time I start it up and hear that v twin growl.

I just sold my 2011 800 XTP Outlander week or so ago, never had an issue at all, great machine, now i've got a new 2015 Outlander Max XTP, and all i do is ride them down logging roads, around the yard, etc. I dont go in deep mud holes, so i dont do any of that snorkel stuff. I think i should have great look with my 2015 aswell. I think you'll be very happy.

Im a Yamaha man at heard, always had Yamaha's, still do, i've got a Yamaha Viking side by side. Yamaha has never let me down, but nothing about the Grizzly made me want one, so that's why i tried my first Can-am in 2011, and went back to them when i sold it.

Have a 2015 XMR 1000 and LOVE IT! Have had only one issue with a rear axle from the factory...Having to wait for it to break before dealer will replace it under warranty. Other than that it's been great!
