 2018 Can-Am Maverick X3 Family

Can-Am is the first to announce 2018 models, and there are some new models scattered throughout the lineup. Of course there are color changes, some of which are fantastic. We have come up with a breakdown.

Maverick X3 Turbo- The Most Powerful SxS On The Market 

Let’s start with the Can-Am side-by-side lineup, and, of course, talk the Maverick X3. Can-Am has now offers basically four different Maverick X3 models. The flagship Maverick X3 Turbo R now comes with a 172 horsepower (one more than the 2017 RZR Turbo), which will do 0 to 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds. That is really fast! There are three trim levels:

2018 Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo 

2018 Can-Am Maverick

Maverick & Maverick MAX

There are a handful of changes in the Maverick & Maverick MAX family, with the most notable being the removal of the DS turbo versions. The only turbo offerings are now on the X3. Another change is the lack of the “X” package on the 64-inch version of the Maverick. Color choices and graphics have undergone changes and the Maverick X mr 1000R (mud version) have added 30-inch ITP Cryptid tires, which we will say look pretty aggressive. The Maverick is offered in 5 models and the Maverick MAX in 2 models, all with the 101-horsepower Rotax 976cc engine.
