X3 Sand Show feature
Without a doubt one of the most popular vehicles on display at the 2016 Sand Sports Super Show was the all new Can-Am Maverick X3.  Although the vehicle was released nearly a month ago and a few lucky off-road enthusiasts were able to get behind the wheel at the Idaho UTV Invasion, the Sand Show served as the first glimpse of the new powerhouse UTV for most of the UTV community.
