  • More power to the Can-Am Maverick X ds 1000R Turbo
  • New specialty vehicles for hunters and mud riders

2016 can-am commander max family
Jun 03, 2015 - 5:14 PM - by NickJ

The Can-Am Commander MAX 1000 side-by-side, with its comfortable, stadium-style seating for four grown adults, offers the most innovative and versatile rec-utility performance in the industry. The Commander MAX platform features a 29.5-inch (75 mm) longer wheelbase (compared to the two-seater) and unmatched comfort for the rear passengers. The MAX platform includes three packages: DPS,™ XT™ and LIMITED. New colors, like Mossy Oak Break-Up Country Camo, a new belt-monitoring mechanism and improved maintenance schedule are the key highlights for 2016.

Can-Am Maverick X ds Turbo takes Doug Siddens Back to Pikes Peak
Apr 20, 2015 - 11:33 AM - by NickJ

April 20, 2015 - Austin, TX - Four-time Pikes Peak International Hill Climb racer, Doug Siddens, will make his fifth bid up the hill in 2016. Doug was the first driver to pilot a Side by Side machine in the famed Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race. This attempt will find him piloting the all-new Can-Am Maverick X ds Turbo, the first factory turbocharged Side by Side to be offered in the UTV market.

Siddens has a long history with the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Back in 2010 he was the first person to pilot a UTV up the 156 turns that make up the race course. In subsequent years, he went from a moderately modified machine, to a heavily modified race car, picking up records and many accolades along the way. In his 2012 appearance, he managed to pick up the title of Fastest Qualifier in the Exhibition Powersport Class. That year he ended up running 9th overall, which is no small feat considering he was racing against the best drivers, and the best teams with considerable big-name backing from all over the world.

The next year, 2013, he stepped into the Unlimited Class with the likes of the Red Bull team and the team surrounding the record-breaking Peugot 208 T16 car. 2013 saw Siddens sitting in the penultimate iteration of his race car featuring a hand-lain... [Read More]
