50-inch Can-Am Maverick Trail Review



I traveled to the Bear River Lodge in northern Utah to test the all-new Can-Am Maverick Trail. This new offering from Can-Am opens up the 50-inch market segment that Polaris targeted first back in 2007 with the original RZR 800. Since 2007, Arctic Cat / Textron (Wildcat Trail) and Honda (Pioneer 500) followed with 50-inch trail capable vehicles so we now have four major manufacturers with vehicles in this segment (see 50-INCH TRAIL CAPABLE UTVS).

The very first thing I noticed when I walked up to the new Can-Am Maverick Trail is the extended wheelbase and overall length. At 90.6 inches, the wheelbase is almost 12-inches longer than a Polaris RZR 900 and the overall length is just over a foot longer. Can-Am was able to use some of this extra room in the cockpit and that was very welcome for my 6′ 1″ frame.

In my opinion the extra wheelbase is the single biggest differentiator for the Maverick Trail over the RZR. While a longer wheelbase not only makes for more legroom in the cab, it also makes for a smoother, more predictable ride in rough terrain. The larger wheelbase does come at a price though larger turning radius, larger vehicle and a smaller break-over angle.

Love that all Makes are putting out options for 50" Trail width. Ive got my eye on the Pioneer 500, only thing I really don't like is the bed area seems like they threw that together and seems more golf cartish to me.

Cool. Overall, is the 50" width a major deterrent to this unit or does it perform well enough to accept the decrease in room/suspension travel in exchange for more trails open?

Thanks

If you don't need a 50-inch for trails you ride on, I would get a wider SxS.

Maverick Trail

We've owned one now for just over a year and for us it's an amazing machine. We ride all over Colorado, wide trails and narrow. It's been over 14,000 ft and not a single problem. Black Bear pass was fun and being narrow was a huge advantage as the switch backs are tight. It's a 1000 DPS so power is no problem.

I need schooled. Are these 50" trails common? Is it mostly a colorado or west coast national park thing or are they common around the country. Im assuming its meant to keep full size vehicles off the trails? Are they common in the NE around NY, NH, VT and ME?
