2017 Can-Am Maverick X3 Max X rs Turbo R


This is the world's first factory 72-in wide side-by-side vehicle. With 22-in of suspension travel and advanced FOX Racing components, it stretches the X3 X rs’ abilities far beyond expectations for staggering performance…anywhere.


  • LANDSCAPE MODE: If there was a rulebook, we'd be accused of cheating: this is the baddest buggy on earth. Punching out the wheels just a bit more gives a staggering performance improvement, not to mention creates the world’s first factory 72-in wide 4-Up side-by-side vehicle. With 22-in of suspension travel and advanced FOX Racing components and a wheelbase 15% longer than the Polaris RZR XP4, it stretches the Maverick X3 MAX X rs’ abilities far beyond your imagination.
  • THRILLING POWER: Meet the king of side-by-side engines, the precision-engineered, industry-leading triple-cylinder Rotax ACE engine. Its 154 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 113 lb-ft of torque at 7,000 RPM give searing speed, no matter the terrain. Tell your friends to look up and hang on.
  • WIND THAT WORKS: With an intake and exhaust tuned to maximize power, efficiency, and throttle response, the Can-Am Maverick X3 MAX will never be starved for performance. Three oversized, out-of-the-way intakes feed the engine and the CVT with clean air and keep temperatures low, with a sport exhaust out back to let the Rotax ACE engine roar.
  • CLEVERLY CAGED: Our engineers are rightfully proud that the Maverick X3 MAX features an ultralight, rigid chassis made of state-of-the-art Dual-Phase 980 steel. Not only is it strong enough to allow the suspension to do its magic, it’s the most efficient way to both harness 154 horsepower and keep your passengers on lock.
  • NO TORQUE INTERRUPTION: A compact, high-performance QRS-X CVT has been calibrated to work with the turbo to virtually eliminate lag, without shifting or torque interruption to slow you down. Its large drive—a long, wide, and thick belt—is our most robust three-roller pulley design yet.
  • SUSPEND BELIEF: Can-Am's all-new four-link TTX suspension with 22-in of travel features a trophy truck-like trailing arm and three links dedicated to controlling camber while delivering optimal geometry at all times, even during extended wheel travel. The result? Unparalleled power transfer to wheels, virtually no bump steer, precise steering response, more confidence at higher speeds—and four huge grins.
  • DRIVER-FOCUSED: With 18% more seat pitch for rear passengers than the Polaris RZR XP4, plus fore, aft, and height adjustments, anyone in the second row will find the perfect perch for what’s about to unfold. There’s well-placed foot rests to grab handles to its tilt and race-inspired steering wheel, and we’ve even fitted integrated wiring and offer a wide range of factory interior accessories. Better give it a name—this Maverick will be around for a long time.
  • PERFECT POSITION: Its low floor with adult-sized room for both rows ensures everyone feels safely connected to the vehicle’s every move. Its high and dominant posture is enhanced with race car-inspired one-piece molded seats with ideal support, weight distribution, and 4-way adjustability for all four seats.
  • UNMISTAKABLY FIERCE: The Maverick X3 MAX X rs' intensity comes from a mix of performance-driven mechanical and structural design, from its signature LEDs to its advanced cockpit. Here, designers have blessed the Maverick X3 X rs with an unmistakable look: in your paint choice of Gold & Can-Am Red or Triple Black.
  • WHEELS AND TIRES ON LOCK: Keep rolling strong with 14-in aluminum beadlock wheels and 30-in. Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 six-ply tires. Built to withstand rough terrain, sturdy lugs and a non-directional tread pattern ensure a precise, earth-conquering ride.
  • ADVANCED SUSPENSION: The Maverick X3 MAX X rs is equipped with fully-adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 PHG Piggyback shocks with bypass and dual-speed compression and rebound (front), and class-leading FOX 3.0 Podium RC2 HPG shocks with remote reservoir with bypass and dual-speed compression and rebound (rear) for ultra-precise performance.
  • SERIOUS ARMOR: For extra protection on our most capable side-by-side vehicle ever, the Maverick X3 MAX X rs has a full roof and a heavy-duty full HMW (High Molecular Weight) skid plate honed to play on rough terrain.
  • ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM: RF Digitally Encoded Security System (D.E.S.S.™) with Start / Stop button.
