    Can Am trail models

    So CanAm is introducing their new trail (50 in) UTV. I have to admit I’m very interested in these models because theyre mated to either a 800 or 1000 engine. Suspension is not as nice and top speed is around 65 mph. I love my wolverine but Can Am isn’t afraid of power in their machines. Would love to hear if anyone has gone for demo in one yet. Will try to go check one out myself. Thoughts?...

    Man love the power option. I have to admit pretty nice . I would give a big thumbs up just on looks alone. But for me the deal breaker is cargo I really like a tail bed . That's the reason I not a big fan of the X4 . You put 4 people in that machine there ain't room for nothing else.

    I’m pretty interested too. I’m curious how these compare in relation to the rzr trail in terms of reliability. I was hopin Yamaha would come out with a 50 inch model utv. Now I need to go with another company.

    They had them at the local dealer when I stopped on Monday. I didn't take one for a ride, but did look it over pretty good. it looks a little odd with the wheels pushed all the way to the back like they are, but the extended wheel base will make it stable. And routine maintenance looks easier than their quads and the Commander. I have a Can AM 2016 570 L LE, takes an hour or more to change the oil, so much stuff to remove to get to the filter. The Maverick Trail has all filters easily accessible.

    I was looking at the trail model and it is very nice. I looked at a Commander before buying my Wolvy but had heard horror stories about Can-Am and there seemed to be a significant jump in price even for the 800. It does look like Can-Am already has a huge aftermarket of accessories lined out for it.

    Commanders are very HOT to ride in. Their center mounted engine put all the heat right up into the cab area. Great in all seasons but summer, guys I know can't / don't drive them in the summer months. Just to Damn Hot. Power!! You bet ya.... They go!! The transmission isn't comparable to the Wolvie, much more jerky in the slow stuff. I don't like their Visco locking diff. Just never quite sure if it's working, is what it feels like.

    Came close to buying a maverick. I hummed and hawed before I did my research. Creeped on the Can am forums and wasn’t comfortable wit Can am quality. Owned 3 Grizzlies and never gave me problems. Sold em and bought my wolverine. Still gonna look at the trail models. I at least want to sit in one. I still think I own the right machine.....

    They might have big motors but they don't have big power with the utility vehicle tune. 51 hp for the 800 and 75 hp for the 1000.

    I looked at one recently and while I didn't drive it I was reasonably impressed. My two initial complaints are cup holder placement and it needed either half-door or the full door bowed out a bit for a bit more shoulder room. It's definitely a model I could see myself owning as a 2nd machine.
