FIRST TEST: 2018 CAN-AM MAVERICK TRAIL

-- Setting the bar narrower By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- 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…

SHOOTOUT: TWO SEATER VS. FOUR SEATER UTV

Which is better for the money? By the staff of Dirt Wheels. There are as many reasons that buyers use to select a new UTV as there are grains of sand in a face full of dune roost. Sure, they differ from person to person and from family to family. Some, happily, are based in fact and logic and, frankly, salesmen hate those people. They would much rather deal with an impulse buyer that responds to a pitch like, “You would look great in this machine!” More so than any other OHV, a UTV may require…

THE MIGHTY DS650

THE BIGGEST, BADDEST, FASTEST, MOST POWERFUL QUAD EVER! -- That's what it said on the front cover of Dirt Wheels, which was certainly a true statement at the time, back 1999. Everyone in the ATV world became very excited about the DS650 when the first photos and news about it were released a few months earlier. At that point all of the ATV enthusiasts across the country were eagerly waiting to read the test on it in Dirt Wheels. What did the Dirt Wheels test crew think about this all-new, super-sized, mega-powerful…

UTV TEST: 2018 CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 X RS TURBO R

Back with more power! By the staff of Dirt Wheels, Photos by Casey Kramer and Pat Carrigan When it comes to new models, we always hope for the unexpected. For Can-Am in 2018, the unexpected would be major changes for the Maverick X3 platform that was radically new in 2017. Considering the X3 was not even an early 2017 release, we expected—and were correct— only minor updates to the successful Maverick X3 line. The ink was barely dry on 2017 Can-Am X3 advertising when Polaris dropped the 2017 RZR XP…
