CAN-AM X3 TURBO R

By the staff of Dirt Wheels CAN-AM X3 TURBO R When it comes to the Can-Am sport UTV line, the Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R sits right at the top. 2019 is the third year for the long-travel, 72-inch-wide flagship. It was truly ground-breaking when it arrived in 2017. It didn’t just raise the bar for sport UTVs, it bent, spindled, folded, and mutilated the bar with more power, more suspension, and more high-performance features than any other machine. Those who love and crave horsepower numbers will remember…

2019 CAN-AM SPORT DPS 1000R

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2019 CAN-AM SPORT DPS 1000R A quick tap of the brake pedal sets the slide in motion. As you actuate the throttle, the crisp awakening of the Can-Am Maverick Sport’s 1000R V-twin engine has a throaty tone that fills the cab. The UTV begins its lean, while the outside Fox Podium shocks settle into their compression stroke, as the inside wheels lighten. A hefty roost of tacky dirt and rocks sprays the trail and trees on the outside of the corner. You counter-steer your power slide just…

PROJECT CAN-AM X3

By the staff of Dirt Wheels PROJECT CAN-AM X3 BFD Off-Road lays claim to being the number-one manufacturer of high-performance sand cars and UTV accessories in Southern California. What we know for sure is that it makes some radical-looking sand cars, and that sand car style is carried over to its UTV parts. The signature BFD Off-Road part is the Can-Am X3 bolt-on cage and matching contoured composite roof. It has a  cage that offers race-car strength and safety, and it is a very nice piece, but the roomy…

2019 CAN-AM OUTLANDER XT 1000R

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2019 CAN-AM OUTLANDER XT 1000R The fun never stops in the world of four-wheeling! Can-Am makes some of the best 4x4 quads around, and you can find models outfitted with extra upgrades in the lineup. The Outlander XT is one of those models, and we got our hands on the 2019 1000R version in a black and Can-Am Red color scheme! We were fortunate to test the Outlander in a lush and thick Canadian forest setting to find out the Outlander’s strengths and weaknesses. POWER MANAGEMENT…

CAN-AM MAVERICK SPORT MAX DPS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels CAN-AM MAVERICK SPORT MAX DPS Our first thought when we experienced the first 50-inch Maverick Trail was, we hope they make this same machine in a wider stance. Like Can-Am was reading our minds, the 60-inch Maverick Sport line followed and was soon joined by the 64-inch Maverick Sport RC . Since we enjoyed everything about the Sport models, combined with the fact that we are never satisfied, we wondered if Can-Am would make a Maverick Sport Max with four seats. And here it is, and…

PROJECT MAVERICK MAX

By the staff of Dirt Wheels PROJECT MAVERICK MAX Some people have a customized UTV because they feel stuck with it. That isn’t the case with Andy Anaya and his well-setup Can-Am Maverick Max X rs. Andy is the sales manager at Chaparral Motorsports, so he has access to great deals on any brand imaginable, and he has driven every machine made. In spite of literally being the kid in the UTV candy store, he spends family time in this customized and personalized 2014 Can-Am that he bought new. Anaya is a long-time…

MUD RIDING SECRETS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels MUD RIDING SECRETS CAN-AM PRESS RELEASE: The thrill of powering through the deepest, gnarliest mud holes on earth doesn‘t come naturally to most people, but Dustin Jones isn‘t most people. Born, raised, and based in Shreveport, Louisiana, his passion for challenging himself and his machines has led not only to S3 Power Sports—but a growing trophy case as proof of all the hard work. We sat down with Dustin and asked him how it all got started—and how you can dip your toes into mud riding to…

2020 CAN-AM LINEUP

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 CAN-AM LINEUP As the young guns say these days, Can-Am has “no chill” when it comes to improving and pushing the UTV and ATV industry. They just announced a few new models, like the work-ready Defender 6x6 HD10, the Maverick Sport X xc, and gave the Maverick X3 line, even more, go with the 195-horsepower Turbo RR! Their ATV lineup received a lot of change for 2019, so we don’t see many new upgrades this go-round, but we can’t exactly say they needed any this year. MAVERICK X3…
