The Can-Am Maverick X3 is one of the most rugged machines in the company’s lineup. This off-road vehicle has 200 horsepower and a wide variety of configurations to meet almost any budget. Its performance-driven mechanical design and structural design enable it to handle rough terrain without sacrificing performance. Aside from being a great addition to any fleet, the X3 is also capable of being weaponized with aftermarket parts.
This new machine is a perfect match for those who are tired of riding dirt and snowmobiles. It comes with a new pDrive roller clutch system that makes it easy to shift gears and provides instant-on power. The company has also updated the styling to make it more appealing to buyers. The Maverick X3 has a new look, too. Its high-quality and durable exterior and a sleek interior are sure to make you want to take your family out for a ride.
The Can-Am Maverick X3 boasts the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class and is also touted to deliver exceptional off-road performance. The new model comes with a stronger frame and upgraded BRP engineers have worked to tweak the Smart-Shox adaptive suspension system. The 2022 Can-Am lineup includes two new Rotax engines that replace the HD5 engine. These new engines feature a pDrive roller clutch system and an upgraded piston.
The X3’s new traction control system provides more traction in difficult conditions. The engine has more power and torque than its predecessor, and the new RS version gets a 900cc Rotax ACE three-cylinder engine with 200 hp. The QS-X CVT is an easy-to-use system that offers torque-sharing with the turbo. It also has a new Smart-Lok technology for differential locking.
For comfort and safety, the X3 features a sway bar and fully adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 piggyback shocks. A patented rear bottom-out control system and ergonomic cockpit create an optimal riding posture. Four-way adjustable bucket seats provide a comfortable ride. These seat covers feature four-point safety harnesses, which make them safer to use while riding. It is an excellent choice for any rider looking to take on different terrain.
The new X3 is available in three different powertrains. The new HD9, which will replace the HD8, is up to 30% more powerful than its predecessor. The Rotax HD9 promises class-leading power and torque while delivering the dependability that owners expect. Its high output and low-end torque make it an exceptional choice for off-road use. If you’re looking for a more affordable utility vehicle, the Can-Am Maverick X3 is a great choice.
To learn more about the new Maverick X3, Can-Am invited selected journalists to the Iron Mountain Resort in Dahlonega, Georgia. A torrential downpour didn’t dampen the spirits, as the terrain is much different from the high-speed deserts of Southern California. The red clay of Georgia quickly became muddy and puddled up, and was perfect for spraying gunk. As the new Maverick X3 proved, there is a lot of fun to be had with this vehicle.
