2019 CAN-AM LINEUP

-- Taking a closer look at the mean machines for 2019 -- After spending the last few years making sure that the Can-Am Maverick X3 line was making life rough for its sport UTV competitors, the 2019 Can-Am line-up has refinements for UTVs but is heavy on upgrades for the company’s extensive line of ATVs. In addition to upgrades in suspension, two of the most popular quads are actually cheaper than they were in 2018. Apparently, Can-Am likes being able to say that the 172-horsepower X3 Turbo R lineup is the most powerful…

CAN-AM MAVERICK TRAIL

-- Testing a great UTV for narrow trails --  When the announcement came that Can-Am had a new, secret sport machine coming for 2018, we couldn’t imagine which direction the Canadian giant could be going. With the Maverick X3s, Can-Am had the widest, longest-travel and, for 2018, the most powerful production UTVs made. The plan wasn’t to top the X3, but to push the Maverick family in another direction with an X3-inspired, 50-inch, legal trail machine. Four total Maverick Trail vehicles make up the Trail line: Maverick…

CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 X RC TURBO R

-- Testing the hottest X3, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- When it comes to Can-Am’s Maverick X3 line, criticisms we make of the performance are truly nit-picking. In spite of the stellar performance of the X3 line, the AWD system is one area where the competition has an edge. Of course, that was before the X3 RC models arrived. Both of the RCs are specially equipped X3s designed to handle all technical trail situations including rock crawling. Can-Am’s Smart-Lok, true on-the-fly, front fully lockable differential with…

PROJECT CAN-AM X3

-- Bolting on just about every accessory part available -- Russell Porter has the enthusiasm of a happy-go-lucky child in a man’s body. Buggy Whip, his successful family company, needed a rolling UTV showcase to help promote its products. Russ jumped like a kid in a candy store at the prospect of turning a Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs into a wicked display car. Buggy Whip has a great reputation, so many leading companies were ready to participate in the build. Russ was able to pick and choose, but he did a lot of choosing,…

COMPARING LOW-COST 4×4 QUADS

-- Honda vs. Yamaha vs. Polaris vs. Kawasaki vs. Can-Am vs. Suzuki vs. Kymco -- We understand what it's like when you want a 4x4 quad so bad, but you don't have a lot of money to spend on one. The good news is that you don't have to get the biggest monster 4x4s to have fun riding off-road. The smaller models will do just fine and they can cost nearly half of what the big boys go for. And, you save even more money if buy used instead of new. There are really good deals on 400 class 4x4s that are around 7 years old. Which…

PROJECT CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 X RS

-- LONE STAR RACING'S DREAM BUILD -- You may recall we featured Lonestar Racing owner Dan Fisher’s Can-Am Maverick X ds in a previous issue of Dirt Wheels’. Fisher built his X3 to compete in the Pro Turbo class for the Best in the Desert series. His car featured some very trick parts, including LSR’s MTS long-travel suspension kit and a stronger cage. There are many other trick parts from LSR installed on Fisher’s Can-Am, and the man behind most of the R&D, lead fabricator, race department manager and…

2019 CAN-AM MAVERICK SPORT

-- Reviewing the wider 60 inch model -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels Can-Am has created machines like the impressive Maverick X3 that schooled the sport UTV market when it was introduced with the longest suspension travel and highest horsepower number. However, where Polaris had a full range of trail- and S (sport)-model RZRs that started at 50 inches wide and went to 60 inches wide, the Canadian brand has sat behind the curve in some ways. For 2018, though, Can-Am introduced the all-new 50-inch Maverick Trail. The…

STREET-LEGAL CAN-AM MAVERICK X DS TURBO 1000

-- Dirt Wheels Reader's Rides -- Hi Dirt Wheels, Best summer greeting from Norway.  I am a very satisfied Dirt Wheels subscriber who always looks forward to the next issue. Here is a photo from yesterday's 100 miles summer-trip on old bad Norwegian country roads.

It has 8.5 and 10.5 inch 3-piece 14" wheels, half an inch forward moved 14" Mountney steering wheel, driver's seat lowered and…

CUSTOM CAN-AM DEFENDER HD10

-- S3 Power Sports builds another ultimate UTV -- Can-Am's DeFender HD10 is a great machine as it is for helping with utility chores and then getting you down the trail at a spirited pace. However, if those trails are down in the soggy bottoms, it could stand to have some mud riding improvements. Along with bigger mud tires, why not trick out a few other things and give it a cool custom look. That's what Kurt Buchert was thinking when he got S3 Power Sports to help him work some magic on his 2018 Can-Am DeFender…
