BRP unleashes its ingenuity once again with five new Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicles. The new models are part of BRP’s ongoing emphasis to improve the rider experience and dramatically expand its side-by-side vehicle lineup. Leading the way is a point-of-entry Maverick X3 model, as well as two mud-ready Maverick X3 packages. Can-Am is also bringing its Smart-Lok front-differential technology to two existing premium Maverick X3 packages.

(The Smart-Lok differential technology was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry.)

Value-Driven Maverick X3
An all-new Maverick X3 900 HO features a 90-horsepower, naturally aspirated Rotax engine that delivers performance at a more accessible price point. It’s designed for people seeking an entry level into the popular sport side-by-side vehicle segment. This newest member of the Maverick X3 family maintains excellent capability with its 64-inch (162.6cm) stance, 18 inches (45.7 cm) of front and rear suspension travel, and premium shocks.

“We continue to refine our award-winning Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle family to improve the rider experience and meet the lifestyle needs of today’s riders,” said Bernard Guy, BRP Senior VP, Global Product Strategy. “The Maverick X3 900 HO supplies exceptional value and also delivers on the brand’s performance promise.”

Mud-Ready Maverick X3
Two all-new Maverick X3 X mr packages reinforce Can-Am’s position as the preferred brand in the specialty mud market.

The center console includes a lighter-type DC outlet as well.

Latest ignition technology

New Rotax Ace Engine Package

90hp Rotax engine
The all-new 2018 Maverick X3 900 HO benefits from the X3 family’s revolutionary design, style and industry influence but offers more affordability for the off-road crowd. The Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle’s 90hp Rotax Ace inline triple-cylinder 900cc engine delivers ample performance for a wide variety of conditions. Don’t let the reduced horsepower fool you, though, as the Maverick X3 900 HO vehicle is made to enthrall while it induces smiles. The Rotax Ace engine is located in the rear of the chassis, resulting in lower cockpit noise, vibration and heat. It also has iridium spark plugs for improved combustion, longer life and lower maintenance.

Powerful 650-W magneto
Whether it is to install high-performance lighting or a ground-shaking sound system, the Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle’s high-output, 650-W magneto can handle it.

Advanced Airflow Dynamics

Improved airflow

Triple, dedicated air intake
There are three oversized air intakes located behind the driver that deliver a constant supply of clean air: two to cool the CVT, and one for high airflow to the engine. The Maverick X3 family also features an easy-to-access, long-lasting Donaldson air filter that’s purpose-built for performance.

Enhanced exhaust
The Can-Am Maverick X3 900 HO vehicle has a large, sport-inspired exhaust with signature sound, which only a Rotax three-cylinder engine can deliver!

QRS-X Transmission

High-response QRS-X CVT

It has a smooth and predictable engagement, and stays at an optimal rpm so the focus can be on driving and overall performance instead of shifting, even in the most severe conditions such as hillclimbing or navigating muddy terrain.

Durable QRS-X CVT design
The QRS-X CVT transmission’s drive belt uses a special compound to produce a stiffer belt with more lateral rigidity. The Can-Am Maverick X3 family’s enormous power transfers into extreme capability using the long, wide CVT belt and a robust three-roller pulley design that includes integrated cooling fins for enhanced airflow. It is a gear-on-gear system with no rear prop shaft for more durability and no maintenance required.

NEW MAVERICK X3 X RS TURBO R with SMART-LOK
MAVERICK X3 MAX X RS TURBO with SMART-LOK

Can-Am added two new distinctive Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R side-by-side vehicles with the exclusive Can-Am Smart-Lok fully locking front-differential system designed in tandem with TEAM Industries, a leader in drive-train technologies, and all new colors. The two-seat Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R and the four-seat Maverick X3 MAX X rs Turbo R vehicles, dressed in Triple Black and Can-Am Red, join the existing 2018 family as separate available packages. As the industry’s most powerful super-sport vehicles, at 172hp, their “Defiant, Precise, Powerful” reign continues with newfound and unmatched traction and control.

Sharpest Handling Features and New Technology

Smart-Lok: fully lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically controlled automatic modes
The new Triple Black and Can-Am Red Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R and Maverick X3 MAX X rs Turbo R vehicles now feature the electronically controlled front lockable differential system with Smart-Lok technology that takes traction to new levels. The system ensures maximum grip and enhanced slow-speed maneuverability, especially in challenging terrain. The Smart-Lok system, developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, takes integrated intelligence to new heights and allows on-the-fly adjustments. The differential can lock and unlock on the fly no matter the speed, letting the driver focus on the trail.

Smart-Lok offers intelligent modes for different riding conditions. The brain controlling this industry-leading technology is the Front Differential Module, gathering input from six key vehicle parameters. It analyzes front-wheel speed from both sides, steering angle, accelerator pedal, gear position, engine torque and vehicle speed. Depending on the readings and the Smart-Lok’s setting, the actuator will instantaneously initiate the locking of the front differential. The result is simple steering output (the same as being fully open), allowing the driver to accurately conquer varying obstacles while maintaining momentum.

The driver has the option to select between four modes: 2×4 / 4×4 fully locked / 4×4 TRAIL ACTIV and 4×4 TRAIL. The dual “TRAIL” settings are designed to enhance the off-road experience by offering more versatility and a customized feel to match to specific terrain, conditions and demands. Our engineering team further enriched the system by including hill-descent control, which includes an Electronic Braking System (EBS) at all four wheels, for improved control and traction.

Exclusive coloration and components
The Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R Smart-Lok and Maverick X3 MAX X rs Turbo R Smart-Lok packages, both with industry-leading 172 horsepower, are available in an exclusive Triple Black & Can-Am Red finish, complete with a matching Can-Am Red cage and black roof.

The Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr family features an ultra-light, rigid chassis made of cutting-edge Dual-Phase 980 steel, which is lighter than traditional steel. This allows the chassis to deliver 53-percent better torsional stiffness while being 20-percent lighter than its closest competitor.

Industry-leading cage rigidity
The Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle’s robust cage is also made of Dual-Phase 980 steel, which is extremely light and rigid. It is a 1.85-inch (4.7cm), tubular, fully welded design – no bolts, no extra pieces – with dedicated servicing zones in case of repair or replacement. The cage is fully ROHVA-compliant and creates a protective barrier around both driver and passenger.

Enhanced protection
The Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr Turbo R and X3 X mr Turbo vehicles offer increased protection for all occupants. Like the other Maverick X3 Turbo vehicles in the family, the X mr vehicles include the unique and unyielding cage, integrated front bumper, and full heavy-duty HMW (high-molecular weight) polyethylene skid plate. The Maverick X3 X mr Turbo R package has half-doors and a Sunburst Yellow cage. The X3 X mr Turbo vehicle comes standard with a black cage and half-doors. Both vehicles offer capable three-point seat belts as standard equipment.

Sharpest Handling Features

Smart-Lok – Full lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically controlled automatic modes for mud
A new industry standard, the electronically controlled front lockable differential system with Smart-Lok technology ensures maximum traction and enhanced slow-speed maneuverability, especially in challenging terrain. The Smart-Lok system, developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, takes integrated intelligence to new heights and allows on-the-fly adjustments. The differential can lock and unlock on the fly no matter the speed, letting the driver focus on the trail.

Smart-Lok offers intelligent modes for different riding conditions. The brain controlling this industry-leading technology is the Front Differential Module, gathering input from six key vehicle parameters. It analyzes front-wheel speed from both sides, steering angle, accelerator pedal, gear position, engine torque and vehicle speed. Depending on the readings and the Smart-Lok setting, the actuator will instantaneously initiate the locking of the front differential. The result is simple steering output (the same as being fully open), allowing the driver to accurately conquer varying obstacles while maintaining momentum.

The driver has the option to select between four modes: 2×4 / 4×4 fully locked / 4×4 MUD and 4×4 TRAIL. The preset MUD and TRAIL settings were strategically calibrated to supply a more customized feel to match to specific terrain, conditions and demands. Our engineering team further refined the system by including hill-descent control, which includes an Electronic Braking System (EBS) at all four wheels, for improved control and traction.

Optimal stability
The 102-inch (259.1cm) wheelbase, which is a full 12 inches (30.5 cm) longer than that of the closest competitor, improves off-road capability by supplying more comfort and a confidence-inspiring ride at both high speeds and technical crawls. The elongated wheelbase, optimal weight distribution (44/56) and ample ground clearance – 14 inches, or 35.6 cm, on the X3 X mr Turbo; 15 inches, or 38.1 cm, on the X3 X mr Turbo R – create optimum performance and stability in even the most appalling muck. The 8-inch-broader (20.4cm) stance on the 72-inch-wide (182.9cm) Maverick X3 X mr Turbo R also provides unmatched stability, when combined with its superior suspension, longer chassis and Smart-Lok technology system.

Superior grip and control
The Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr Turbo R side-by-side vehicle wears 14-inch (35.6cm) aluminum black beadlock wheels. The mechanical fastening beadlock system makes it nearly impossible for the tire bead to break loose from the wheel during heavy acceleration or cornering or when navigating a rock-strewn course. New, eight-ply, 30-inch (76.2cm) ITP Cryptid tires are purpose-built to perform in muddy terrain. The tread pattern is designed to deliver unparalleled forward traction with a graduated lug height (up to 2 inches, or 5.1 cm) at the tire’s shoulder. The resulting “paddle-like” shoulder design provides maximum side bite for climbing in and out of the mud without compromising ride comfort on trails and hard-pack. The grooved center lugs also channel away mud and create unmatched predictability in ruts.

4,500-pound (2,041kg) winch with synthetic rope
Each Maverick X3 X mr Turbo packages include a 4,500-pound winch with a synthetic rope as mandatory equipment. The durable system, mounted near the front bumper of the vehicle, offers ample pulling strength. The synthetic rope is ideal because it’s strong, lightweight, easy to clean, and perfect in high-use situations.

Extraordinary braking power
The Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicles all have the same braking package for superior stopping performance. The vehicle includes large, twin-piston calipers and 262mm discs up front, and twin-piston calipers and 248mm discs at the rear. Each has high-performance brake pads for superior control. The master cylinder is located inside the cockpit for better protection.

Optimized ride control
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has many driver-centric features. An updated high-torque, Tri-Mode DPS system (Min, Med, Max) is designed to optimize the desired amount of steering assist for trail riding and in extremely difficult terrain, where management at slow speed is a necessity. All Maverick X3 models come with Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC), which provides smooth throttle delivery even if the driver’s foot is bouncing in rough terrain. Both X3 X mr vehicles also have the race-inspired, quick-ratio steering wheel with just 1.5 turns lock-to-lock, for precise control.

Convenience and Maintenance

Increased fuel capacity
Owners will focus more on driving and less on refueling with the Can-Am Maverick X3 family’s standard 10.5-gallon (40L) fuel tank — the largest in the industry.

Ample storage/cargo capacity
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle offers a total of 2.5 gallons (9.4 L) of storage by way of a fixed glove box, a center console, and two cup holders, because added convenience improves the overall performance package. Externally, there is a rear rack with a 200-pound (91kg) capacity. The rack works with the Can-Am LinQ quick-attach accessory system, allowing easy installation and removal of a storage box, rack extension, bag, or other items. The center console includes a lighter-type DC outlet as well.

Latest ignition technology
The Can-Am Maverick X3 family features an automotive-like, keyless start-stop button activated by a Radio Frequency Digitally Encoded Security System (DESS) key. It also includes a separate learning key that limits speed and acceleration for novice drivers.

Simple maintenance
Like all members of its family, the Maverick X3 X mr vehicles have simplified maintenance. The front hood allows quick access to fluids and fuses, while snap-fitted body panels allow for quick access to other key components. The hood and grill are also removable for easy radiator cleaning. Additionally, there is easy access to DIY pieces, including the radiator, battery, oil filter, fuel pump and turbo.

Maintenance-free first year
The Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr Turbo vehicles have no break-in maintenance required and only an annual maintenance schedule, which means reduced total maintenance costs. The yearly advised maintenance is at 1,865 miles (3,000 km) or 200 hours.

Two Turbocharged Rotax Ace Engine Packages – Incredible Performance

Industry-leading 172hp turbocharged and intercooled Rotax engine
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has an industry-leading 172hp at 7,250 rpm and 124 foot-pounds of torque at 6,500 rpm. Also, the industry-leading performance includes the ability to go from zero to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds!

Power comes from an inline triple-cylinder, turbocharged and intercooled Rotax Ace 900cc engine. The additional power boost is the result of resolute engineering and devotion to performance, one key pillar of all Can-Am vehicles’ DNA. The intercooler and fan (with additional fins) were redesigned to maximize heat transfer (upward of 49-percent more heat flow). With the horsepower increase, a new fuel pump was added to create more volume to support the new power, expanding from 58 psi to 65 psi. Additionally, a new stiffer CVT belt uses an enhanced compound and offers stiffer lateral rigidity to meet the optimized performance demands.

120hp turbocharged Rotax engine
The all-new 2018 Maverick X3 X mr Turbo benefits from the X3 family’s revolutionary design, style and industry influence, delivering mud fanatics a nearly indomitable package at exceptional value. A spirited, 120hp, turbocharged Rotax Ace inline triple-cylinder 900cc engine, which doesn’t include an intercooler, was recalibrated to obliterate the mud – and the competition.

All the turbocharged Rotax Ace engines are located in the rear of the chassis, resulting in lower cockpit noise, vibration and heat. It also has iridium spark plugs, which provide improved combustion, longer life and lower maintenance.

Ultra-efficient intercooler
The Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr Turbo R has a light and durable intercooler optimized for maximum cooling efficiency. Its large fan and optimized placement are engineered for performance without compromising visibility. (The 120hp Maverick X3 X mr Turbo does not have an intercooler.)

Fully integrated turbo
An integrated Rotax turbocharger with high boost is located right next to the engine for an immediate power delivery. It’s built for performance, but its one-piece turbine housing and exhaust manifold also offer more durability.

Powerful 650-W magneto
Whether it is to install high-performance lighting or a ground-shaking sound system, the Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle’s high-output, 650-W magneto can handle it.

Powerful
The specialty Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr Turbo R package arrives as the industry’s first turbocharged mud-specific side-by-side vehicle and also its most powerful, at 172hp! The intercooled Rotax Ace triple-cylinder engine’s performance is unmatched.

The Maverick X3 X mr Turbo vehicle receives the Can-Am Maverick X3 family DNA and specialized mud components from the factory to ensure it outperforms the competition. Its turbocharged 120hp Rotax Ace engine separates it from vehicles within its class and supplies rock-riding enthusiasts an affordable option. Both vehicles also feature optimized airflow and a revised performance-tuned transmission, giving the Maverick X3 X mr Turbo family an advantage over the competition.

Advanced Airflow Dynamics

Improved airflow
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle features a highly efficient airflow system that’s optimized from intake to exhaust to deliver superb engine efficiency and performance. The intake areas are strategically positioned high and dry for excellent mud/water protection.

Triple, dedicated air intake
There are three oversized air intakes located behind the driver that deliver a constant supply of clean air: two to cool the CVT, and one for high airflow to the engine. The Maverick X3 also features an easy-to-access, long-lasting Donaldson air filter that’s purpose-built for performance.

Strategically Positioned Engine Air Intake and CVT Inlets and Outlets
There are four critical total components located high in the vehicle behind the driver’s seat that flow air for enhanced cooling and protection from the elements. Two serve as CVT air intakes, while a third is an engine intake that supplies the Rotax with optimal air supply. Another snorkel is designated for expelling the CVT exhaust and engine exhaust.

Enhanced exhaust
The Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle’s turbine housing is integrated with the exhaust manifold, providing better airflow and minimizing pressure drop so the turbo has no lag. The large, sport-inspired exhaust has a unique and powerful sound signature, which only a Rotax three-cylinder engine can deliver!

QRS-X Transmission

High-response QRS-X CVT
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has a high-performance QRS-X CVT transmission in a compact gearbox that’s optimized to work in combination with the turbo to virtually eliminate turbo lag and enhance throttle response without torque interruption. It has a smooth and predictable engagement, and stays at an optimal rpm so the focus can be on driving and overall performance instead of shifting, even in the most severe conditions, such as hillclimbing or navigating muddy terrain.

Durable QRS-X CVT design
The QRS-X CVT transmission’s drive belt uses a special compound to produce a stiffer belt with more lateral rigidity. The Can-Am Maverick X3 family’s enormous power transfers into extreme capability using the long, wide CVT belt and a robust three-roller pulley design that includes integrated cooling fins for enhanced airflow. It is a gear-on-gear system with no rear prop shaft for more durability and no maintenance required.

Advanced cooling
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle features improved airflow for optimized CVT cooling, which provides better protection for longer-lasting CVT components (e.g., longer belt durability) and less maintenance. More fins were added to the fan to enhance heat transfer.

Simple transmission maintenance
The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle was designed for ease-of-maintenance with the transmission system by way of quick access to the filters, an easily removable CVT belt, and an easy-to-access CVT cover drain plug.
