New price point Maverick X3 also unveiled

The UTV horsepower wars received another blast of firepower today when BRP announced the new 2018 Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo R is offering up a ludicrous 172 horsepower. That is an 18-horsepower gain over last year’s 154-horsepower Maverick X3. Peak torque also improved by 10% to 124 lb-ft at 6,500 rpm.

According to BRP, the new and improved Maverick X3 Turbo R can go from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

While a boost in horsepower often comes with a similar boost in price, this is not the case with the 2018 Mavericks as the US MSRP didn’t budge. Prices start at $22,999.
