Can-Am Wins Best In the Desert Vegas To Reno

The Can-Am Maverick X3 is continuing its push to conquer the off-road scene and this victory at the V2R event,Phil Blurton reinforces that message. Blurton, in his rookie season and first year behind the wheel of the Can-Am X3, now has back-to-back victories. 

PHIL BLURTON: “This was definitely the roughest courses we’ve ever raced and our Can-Am Maverick X3 ran flawless all day. We put a lot of time in the car to prepare it for V2R, knowing it would be a challenging race, and also prepared our bodies prior to the race to ensure we were ready to go,” said Blurton. “We kept the Maverick pretty much as stock as we could – aside from adding our No Limit parts and the mandatory parts to race BITD.”

Logan Gastel started the day 40th out of 50 UTV Turbo class competitors, but ended up on the class podium in third place in his Can-Am Maverick vehicle. 


The team of Don Higbe, Bryan Buckhannon and Rick Cecco produced a solid second-place finish in the Pro Quad class at the V2R race aboard its Can-Am Outlander 1000 4×4 ATV.

Matt Burroughs and his team of co-drivers started 29th in the UTV Turbo ranks and came away with an impressive fourth place finish with their Monster Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R side-by-side vehicle. 



BRP  continues to optimize its Can-Am off-road lineup with multiple changes for 2018. The brand is again setting the bar with the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market, the new 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model. The thrilling Rotax ACE engine was reconfigured to deliver a potent 172hp straight from the factory. Additional lineup changes include more options for utility and recreational use, with the introduction of additional specialty packages.

“The 2018 Can-Am lineup reflects the passion and exhilaration we bring to people,” said Anne-Marie LaBerge, BRP’s senior VP, Global Brands & Communications. “Along with expanding our Maverick X3 and Defender family of off-road vehicles, we have enriched our recreational-utility category Can-Am Commander and Outlander ATV segments with added performance, improved value and more specialty packages.”


The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle family continues to make industry-altering headlines with the arrival of the new 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model, the most powerful factory-built side-by-side vehicle on the market. The turbocharged 172hp 2018 Maverick X3 Turbo R model delivers 12 percent more horsepower and 10 percent added torque. The new flagship super-sport side-by-side vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side family also now includes a 120hp Maverick X3 Turbo side-by-side. The new vehicles, offered in two- and four-seat packages, start at less than $20,000 USD* and come standard with many of the performance features for which the Maverick X3 is known.

To reinforce its influence in the utility-recreation category, the Can-Am Defender vehicle family now includes a market point-of-entry in the crew category with the Defender MAX HD8 package ($12,399 USD*). The new 2018 Defender MAX XT CAB HD10 super model features enhanced ground clearance, arched A-arms, with a greater footprint and an integrated heater system.

The Commander 1000R side-by-side vehicle also received a significant update for 2018, with a performance bump to 92hp, a wider stance and larger brakes for enhanced appeal in the recreational-utility category. The Can-Am Commander 800 side-by-side vehicle has a $1,000* price drop (US) for the new model year.
