Prepare to be blown away introducing the world to the remarkable 2024 Can-Am Maverick R, a ground-shaking addition to the side-by-side market that has set a new benchmark in off-road prowess. Can-Am’s unveiling of the 2024 Maverick R is nothing short of a revelation, heralding a UTV that’s primed to rival the Polaris Pro R and redefine race-readiness right out of the box. Armed with an arsenal of features that include best-in-class horsepower, awe-inspiring suspension performance, and an innovative 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Maverick R promises an unparalleled off-road experience. After an arduous five-year development journey encompassing over 500,000 kilometers of testing, the Maverick R is poised to leave its indelible mark.
At the core of the 2024 Can-Am Maverick R throbs an all-new turbocharged 999 cc inline three-cylinder Rotax engine, unleashing a staggering best-in-class 240 hp. This powerplant is a testament to relentless innovation, with upgrades like forged aluminum pistons, plasma-coated cylinder bores, a closed-deck head design, and 8-tension rods intertwining the crankcase, engine block, and head. The dual fuel injectors harmoniously supply each of the three cylinders, collaborating to ensure an unceasing surge of energy. Each piston is fortified with an oil squirter for heightened cooling, while a dry-sump oil system maintains lubrication even during jaw-dropping angles. A groundbreaking 54 mm Rotax turbocharger takes center stage, directly mounted to the engine block and incorporating an integrated, tubeless oil and cooling system. A trailblazing feature of this turbocharger is its pioneering use of an electronically actuated wastegate.
The Maverick R proudly offers three distinctive drive modes: Normal, Sport, and Sport+. The apex of performance is attained in the Sport+ mode, activating the Advanced Response Technology (ART) system. ART’s mission is to obliterate any hint of turbocharger-induced lag. By deactivating the ignition on the middle cylinder while simultaneously altering timing on the other two cylinders and widening the throttle body, the turbocharger is prompted to engage even at idle. The result is instant spooling and boost pressure as soon as the accelerator is engaged. Remarkably, the ART system’s prowess renders a separate launch control program virtually unnecessary.
Comprehensive review peels back the layers of innovation that define the 2024 Can-Am Maverick R, inviting you to delve into an off-road realm where power, precision, and exhilaration converge in a breathtaking symphony.
