Can-Am has revealed new members of the Maverick X3 family: the Can-Am Maverick X3 X mr Turbo and X mr Turbo R, a set of specialty models that are optimized for the mud. The X mr Turbo and X mr Turbo R UTVs represent a new step for the Maverick X3 and come equipped right out of the factory with upgrades that appeal to riders who love mud.

Engine

The differences between the mud-specific models and the other Maverick X3 models begin right with the Rotax ACE 900 cc engine and the QRS-X CVT, with the air intakes and exhaust strategically placed high in the vehicle behind the driver’s seat in order to protect against mud and water. Four snorkels are positioned there: two CVT air intakes, one engine intake, and one exhaust. The X mr Turbo delivers 120 hp, but the X mr Turbo R takes it a step further by providing 172 hp – the most hp available in the Maverick X3 family (or any current UTV in the class, for that matter).

The X mr Turbo sports an industry-exclusive front differential system featuring Smart-Lok™ technology, providing an incredible level of traction in challenging terrain. The Smark-Lok system delivers on-the-fly adjustments automatically.

Tires

Another upgrade comes in the form of the ITP Cryptid tires, designed with deep lugs in a strategic paddle formation to handle the gnarliest of mud. The Cryptid features graduated lug height, with 1.5″ in the center of the chevron, moving out to 2″ at the shoulder. Grooves in the lugs channel away mud and water. The 30″ tires are another improvement over other Maverick X3 models.

Body

One of the mud-specific additions to the X mr Turbo models is a winch rated for 4,500 pounds with synthetic rope. There are also front and rear tow hooks on the side-by-side. Both models feature the full HMW skid plate that comes standard with the basic X3 Turbo, but they also include a skid plate under the bumper as well.

Other Key Details

The X3 X mr Turbo models both feature FOX 2.5 Podium Piggyback shocks in the front and the rear. The X mr Turbo R has 22″ of front travel and 24″ of rear travel (20″ front and rear on X mr Turbo).

The X mr Turbo features a 64″ width, while the X mr Turbo R delivers additional stability with a 72″ width. Both utilize a fully welded dual-phase 980 steel frame. The X mr Turbo offers 14″ ground clearance, and the X mr Turbo R gives an additional inch for 15″.

Another nice addition with the X mr Turbo models is the carbon black and sunburst yellow color scheme, offering a pleasant aesthetic difference over the other Maverick X3 models.
