SIDE-BY-SIDE VEHICLE TECHNOLOGIES
When you’re behind the wheel,
unmatched power, total control and
maximum comfort are all yours.
It all starts with the best engines available. From the 800R to the 1000R TURBO, you will get an impressive power-to-weight ratio for exhilarating acceleration. With the Maverick X ds Turbo, Can-Am is the only OEM to offer the industry’s first factory-installed turbocharger. For 2016, we are going even further, increasing output to an unmatched and industry-leading 131 hp.
The CVT system is configured to increase power of the turbocharged engine. It features a driven pulley with a Quick Response System (QRS) and a performance drive pulley. This innovative design reduces friction, providing an instant response and optimum belt clamping for better power transfer. The CVT airflow is optimized to bring more cold air flowing through the pulleys.
MAXIMISE BUMP ABSORPTION
The Torsional Trailing arm Independent rear suspension (TTI) delivers stable, responsive performance on the Commander line of side-by-side vehicles. Its exclusive design eliminates scrub and camber changes and lets the rear wheels move straight up and down, as opposed to a butterfly-like movement, keeping the vehicle moving precisely in the direction you drive it. It provides 10 in. (25.4 cm) of suspension travel and an integrated, external sway bar to reduce body roll, enhance traction and improve control in turns.
MAXIMISE BUMP ABSORPTION
The Torsional Trailing A-Arms rear suspension (TTA) is a compact five-link suspension, standard on the Maverick, unique in the industry. It eliminates bump steer and minimizes scrub while maximizing bump absorption and tyre-to-ground contact. There’s also less unsprung weight than competitive sport side-by-side vehicles and offers up to 16 in. (40.6 cm) of travel.
VARIABLE STEERING ASSISTANCE
The industry-exclusive Tri-Mode DPS features three selectable modes of assist – MIN, MED, and MAX. Each mode provides less assist at high speed for better precision and more assist at low speed for easier steering.
From our two-seat side-by-side vehicles cockpit to our four-seat Maverick MAX and Commander MAX, we’ve designed the interior to be the roomiest and most comfortable on the market. And all our cockpits are easy to get into and out, have plenty of elbow room and individual handholds for passengers. When it comes to making you and your passenger(s) comfortable for work and play, we lead the way.
The industry-exclusive Dual-Level cargo box featured on the Can-Am Commander offers maximum storage and adaptability. With the option for upper and lower bed in the storage divider, optional lockable trunk, removable upper gate and water-resistant panel, the Commander cargo bed is unrivaled for versatility.
