❏ In late 2016 Can-Am released its new flagship
performance UTVs, the Maverick X3 lineup! At
the time it had the most powerful powerplant,
with 154 horsepower and 113 foot-pounds of
torque from their turbocharged ACE (Advanced
Combustion Efficiency) engine. Along with that,
the X3 had the most suspension travel— 20 inch-
es for the standard X3 and X DS model, while
the X RS model had a whopping 22 inches in
the front and 24 inches in the rear, along with
being the widest production UTV to date at 72
inches. We were impressed with our first full
test of the X3 models. After close to 300 miles in
Baja, Mexico, it was apparent that Can-Am built
a machine that can handle just about anything.
They are amazing machines.
