One of the biggest surprises of 2021 so far was the introduction of a completely new 2021 Can-Am Commander. It was time for a completely new Commander considering not anything had really changed since its introduction 10 years ago. While ground-breaking at the time, other competitors have crept
This week Can-Am reveled a completely new Can-Am Commander for 2021. By all accounts the Can-Am Commander introduced the rec/utility class of side-by-side back in 2010, but has been untouched by Can-Am since. The 2021 Commander marks a complete redesign from the ground up, and offers some class leading features in the process.
No doubt it is fair to say that Can-Am killed it at the 2021 King Of The Hammers with the top three finishers piloting their Can-Am Maverick X3's to the podium in the UTV class. Kyle Chaney crossed the finish line first flaming the win at the 2021 Can-Am UTV King Of The Hammers race with a course time of 3:47:49. Can-Am drivers Cody Miller and Phil Burton took second
Dakar is a big deal. As off-road racing goes it is one of the top two of the biggest races with the Baja 1000 being the other. Think thousands of miles over 12 days through Saudi Arabia in a truly grueling race complete with sand, rocks, and mud. When the dust settled on this year's Dakar the Can-Am Maverick X3 with Francisco López and Juan Pablo Latrach Vinagre at the helm took the first place
It is October and already Can-Am is releasing some “mid-year” 2021 models. This time around Can-Am is introducing us to two new Defender PRO models including the Defender PRO Lone Star and the Defender PRO Limited. Both of these models are painted with high-end features making those who own these models have a more comfortable drive. Secondly, and in our opinion more of a big deal,
Can-Am gave us both a nice and needed surprise by announcing its 2021 lineup this week. After reading through the press release, sitting in on a video conference call, and getting some time to sleep on changes to the Can-Am lineup, one thing is clear. The 2021 “new” to the Can-Am lineup revolves around a new technology: Smart-Shox.
Can-Am Off-Road has been on a tear recently. Whether it’s unveiling some of the toughest, most capable utility side-by-side vehicles on the market, or crushing the competition at the world’s most grueling races. Like, for example, finishing in all of the top 20 spots at the 2020 Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia and then following that up by sweeping the podium
There is no question it was Can-Am's year at King Of The Hammers as all three podium spots were filled with Can-Am racers including the winner Hunter Miller. Can-Am racers just flat out crushed the race with eight of the ten top positions. That is truly impressive. This is just two weeks after Can-Am racers secured all of the top 20 positions at the 2020 Dakar Rally
Last week we brought you an update on what is considered to be the roughest, toughest, off-road race in the World. DAKAR is 5,592 miles across Saudi Arabia which is grueling in every way imaginable. Casey Currie has been chasing the win, and, after several days and 5,592 miles, brought home the 2020 DAKAR win. Casey is one of the first Americans to win DAKAR.
The DAKAR off-road race is something all of you have probably heard about at some point because it is "the" race billed as the toughest off-road race ever. This year DAKAR has been moved from South America back to Saudi Arabia. The 2020 DAKAR race is taking place right now in Saudi Arabia with multiple stages over multiple days with many many miles to the tune of 5,592 to be exact. DAKAR is not just
First and foremost the fact the Can-Am Defender 6x6 has six wheels and tires and six-wheel drive is the most awesome feature of the Defender 6x6. That is just naughty! Besides this, the standout feature is the six-foot long dumping cargo bed. You can carry so much stuff. You could even carry a bed.... in the bed! Check out the video.

So, to start getting you excited for what is to come this January, Can-Am is ready to hit the nail on the head again and put the Maverick X3 back on top.

Last week we brought the news of Can-Am throwing it's hat in the ring at the upcoming Professional Bull Riders World Finals last weekend https://www.atvescape.com/industry-news/can-am/1757-can-am-teams-up-with-the-professional-bull-riders. Now if you caught the PBR World Finals this past weekend

If you want to experience a "good time" then go to a Professional Bull Riders show. We have
Whenever we see these pictures of snow being "shredded" on an ATV or side-by-side it really does make us warm and fuzzy inside. It just does! We want to do this SO BAD!!! What is not to love about fresh power and being aboard an ATV or side-by-side tearing it up and making new trails! Then there are those who despite the snow have to work or get the job done no matter what, and tracks make
Russian Fedor Vorobeyev and American Corry Weller each secured an off-road racing championship in the Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle this past weekend, adding to more titles to the brand’s successful 2019 season.
We just got back from quite the ride in south Texas where we drove all the new 2020 Defender models including the Defender Pro, Defender 6x6, and the Defender Limited.

We put
Let's say that you have a shinny Can-Am Maverick X3, and, for the sake of this tale, let's say you want to be surrounded by music as you rip around in your Can-Am Maverick X3. You are in luck then because Can-Am and Roksford Fosgate, who makes audio systems, have teamed up to build a audio roof for your Maverick X3. Rocksford Fosgate is a premium brand, and this audio roof is no joke either.
XPS is introducing an all new line of care products that have been expertly engineered to extend the life of all types and brands of on-road, off-road, snow and marine vehicles.
Can-Am clearly enjoys keeping us guessing at what is coming, and we are ok with it. It seems the Can-Am Defender family just grew by two more models for the 2020 model year with the addition of the Defender Limited and Defender Pro. It is no secret that we are Defender fans which stems from all the time we have spent aboard what may be the best all-around utility-rec side-by-side on the market. Yep,

Anyway, Ken is going around to film Ken Block's Guide To Awesome Can-Am Riding Sports, with this episode being at Sand Hallow, Utah. We have ridden there, and it is pretty cool.
. I know we have some hunters out there and Can-Am is trying to draw you into a giveaway! We think it would be a good idea to enter because "why not?". Here is what you need to know.
Ken Block is known for some wild driving meaning the side-by-sides he chooses to use better be able to handle the madman behind the wheel.

Blacked-out Can-Am dirt-and-sand shredders
