SUPER-SPORT
In another thrilling step in its effort to change the game in the off-road world and take over the super-sport segment of the side-by-side vehicle industry, Can-Am Off-Road has introduced the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market. The turbocharged 172hp 2018 Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R side-by-side vehicle family features the same defiant, precise and powerful genetics, but raises the bar and redefines the super-sport side-by-side category by delivering 12 percent (+18hp) more horsepower and 10 percent added torque for unprecedented performance. The new flagship side-by-side vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in a mind-boggling 4.4 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market, period!

No other side-by-side vehicle offers as much power as the new turbocharged and intercooled Rotax ACE engine can put down, an epic 172 horsepower.

The additional power is the result of resolute engineering and devotion to performance, one key pillar of all Can-Am vehiclesโ€™ DNA. The intercooler and fan were redesigned to maximize heat transfer (upwards of 49 percent more heat flow). With horsepower increase, a new fuel pump was added to create more volume to support the new power.

In addition to the market-leading innovation and class-leading performance, the new Maverick X3 Turbo R family provides consumers with a fantastic value, as price did not increas (in the US) related to this sizeable 18hp power upgrade. The 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R and MAX X3 Turbo R packages are: X3 (base), X3 X ds and X3 X rs. The new model year also means new color offerings and components. To meet consumer demand, all Maverick X3 X rs vehicle packages (two and four-seat) now come standard with a factory-installed, retractable 4-point harness system.

The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle family also now includes the 120-hp Maverick X3 Turbo side-by-side, a market point-of-entry vehicle that offers more horsepower than competitive vehicles in its price point. The new Maverick X3 Turbo family, offered in two-seat and MAX packages, also arrives with unbeatable value (starting at less than $20,000 USD in the US; two-seater) while including all the revolutionary X3 DNA. The features and benefits include the industryโ€™s leading long-travel suspension (20-in. / 50.8 cm, front and the rear), the Rotax ACE turbocharged engine (no intercooler) and unparalleled design.
