Improved SSV Performance & Power
Through the constant pursuit of increased performance and power, Can-Am has further solidified its position as the mid-horsepower sport UTV leader by increasing the Maverick X3 DS Turbo’s horsepower to 135, up 15 horsepower from the 2022 model. Following the trend of breaking new ground, the Defender is now the pinnacle of working performance for suspension performance and unrivaled tire clearance in the utility-recreational category, and comes stock with 30-inch tires.
