2022 Can Am X3 Xrc Turbo RR
The RS line is specifically built to perform in the desert with its 72-inch wide track, powerful engine, and state-of-the-art suspension grouping. Stability, confidence, and control all came to the fore when Can-Am designed this range of machines. For 2022 it doesn’t fix what isn’t broken.
There are no major changes for 2022 apart from every X3 unit receiving Smart-Lok differential locking technology and a slight increase in engine power output from 195 to 200 hp.
Powerful engine, a few feet of suspension travel, top-level performance trim, roof, LED lights all over, and big 32-inch tires.
Prices are high even for the base non-X RS trim, the interior still feels dated, and the 72-inch track width can make transporting it difficult in some trailers.
This is Can-Am’s premier pure sport created side by side to tackle desert tracks. It packs everything Can-Am knows about racing into one machine and is offered in several different flavors where suspension items are changed to help fit various budget brackets. This rig still dominates in the sand, but somehow it still feels dated due to the bland interior without modern amenities like speakers or navigation.

We’d go for the X3 X RS Turbo RR with the top-tier trim package without the Fox Smart Shox. We’ve never come across an active valve system that warrants paying thousands extra when any local suspension shop can do better for less.
Getting bigger tires, additional suspension travel, and an improved dashboard look helped to resell. If you have the cash, grab the Smart Shox trim. If you have four people to entertain, take the Max, and if you can’t stand the cost but want a desert RS trim with 72-inch wide tracks, go for the non-X.
2022 Can Am X3 Powertrain: Engine, Transmission, and Performance
All RS trim levels feature an updated 900cc Rotax ACE three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 200 hp. Can-Am’s PDrive and QRS-X CVT manage power transfer to the axles via the Smart-Lok-equipped drivetrain in each vehicle for 2022.
Smart-Lok technology offers four different traction modes—two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive with lock front drive differentials, active four-wheel drive lanes, and four-wheel drive lanes—which can be quickly adjusted by the driver to maximize traction on various terrains.
2022 Can Am X3 Handling
The standard Fox 2.5 Podium QS3 suspension components handle articulation on non-X RS trim vehicles, offering an impressive 22-inch suspension journey. The RS X trim jumps to the front Fox 2.5 and Fox 3.0 Podium RC2 rear components which offer similar 22-inch suspension travel up front and an impressive 24-inch suspension at the rear.
While the QS3 system offers single damping control, the RC2 suspension allows the driver to perform high-speed compression, low-speed compression, and rebound damping. The rear RC2 shock utilizes a remote reservoir that mounts to the rear roll cage frame and provides 2 feet of articulation to withstand those big bump bumps, stabilize the rhythm section, and save your spine when those invisible washouts crop up.
The Smart-Shox RS trim incorporates Fox’s semi-active intelligent suspension. It self-adjusts up to 200 times per second on compression and rebound damping settings. It can go from full soft to full hard in 17 milliseconds when predicting you’ll just send it. Unlike some other intelligent shock systems, this system can also be adjusted by the driver through three modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport+.

Each RS trim features a large 262mm ventilated rotor at the front encased by hydraulic dual-piston calipers. The rear uses a smaller 248mm ventilated rotor with the same hydraulic dual piston calipers. Braking performance is strong and predictable, exactly what you want when stretching your legs in the desert.
2022 Can Am X3 Ergonomics: Comfort and Utility
Inside the cockpit of the non-X RS, buyers will find a signature list of Maverick X3 features: four-way adjustable bucket seats, heavy bearings, and an adjustable steering wheel. The RS X and Smart-Shox cockpits enhance excellence with a four-point harness and full roof. Both trims offer center mirrors.
All doors open from the front via an internal locking system, including the rear doors on the four seats.
All RS machines provide a small rear cargo area incorporating the Can-Am LinQ quick mount system.
2022 Can Am X3 Payload / Towing
The rear cargo area is rated to hold 200 pounds in two seats and 150 pounds in four seats. Both incorporate the LinQ quick install system.
While there is no towing hitch receiver on any of the Maverick X3 models, a recovery latch is provided at the rear of every RS trim vehicle. This is not rated for towing, only vehicle recovery.
2022 Can Am X3 Electronic
The non-X trim offers a smaller 4.5-inch digital dashboard display. The X gives you a larger 7.5-inch digital dashboard view. Each sits at the front of the wheel to allow the driver to monitor various vehicle metrics.
Speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip- and hour meters, fuel, gear position, Sport and Eco modes, seat belt and 4×4 indicator, front and rear diff lock indicator, diagnostics, clock, battery voltage, engine temperature, and DPS mode are all available to be monitored on the dashboard via the keypad system. Smart Shox vehicles also add that reading to the dashboard.
Full LED lighting is used in every vehicle, powered by a powerful 850-watt magnet that offers plenty of room to attach additional power-hungry accessories.
