if You’re look­ing for a big, burly ATV, this is your ma­chine. It stands nearly 50 inches tall, and is 46 inches wide and 86 inches long. Pow­ered by a beefy V-twin en­gine ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing up to 78 hp, the Out­lander XT 850 has plenty of power and an eye-catch­ing de­sign.

On the course, its qual­ity of build and lay­out stood out. But all was not per­fect. We en­coun­tered a cou­ple of in­stances of belt slip when the ma­chine had to work hard in high range, like climb­ing over downed logs. The ride re­ceived mixed re­views—some loved the softer feel, oth­ers not so much.
