Can-Am Brings the HEAT with 195 HP X3 Turbo RR!

Wow! Things are gettin wild!

Right on the heels of a wave of exciting news from Honda, Can-Am steps up and lands a blow of their own.

For the 2020 model year you’ll be able to purchase the X3 in Xds, XRS, XRC or XMR model with a 195 horsepower Turbo RR engine! To achieve the power gain the RR engine gets a bigger turbo, upgraded pistons, intercooler, and a high flow airbox. This is not just a tuning change.

  1. I think it’s a awesome step-up on Can-ams part. I have had to put a lot of money into my 2017 X3 xrs Max to get 200HP so I know that people will enjoy 195HP out of a stock unit. Keep it up Can-am, I will always be loyal.

  2. That XMR !

  3. Honestly would have thought they would have went straight to 200hp. I feel like they left the door open on that one. Nevertheless it’s awesome.

    • It’s going to be very interesting to see what Polaris has to answer back with. It’s been 168/172 which isn’t much between the two but to make the leap to 195 is pretty substantial. Why 195 when they could have easily thrown the gauntlet down and made the 1st factory 200hp SXS. It’s only 5hp but it sounds so much better!

  4. And my want for a turbo car just grew yet again.. man o man i wish i could take on that payment lol

    When I got my 2018, I thought I would never get another machine, guess I was wrong.

    I have been planning to by my 1st SXS this fall. Honda, Polaris and Can-Am are making it hard to choose! Right now it is looking like the X3 XRC Turbo RR is checking most of my boxes. It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

  8. Poor Rick.

    See now why my 2019 was such a good deal. To be honest the power of the 19 is pretty impressive as is and I can do alot with the 5k I saved

  10. Well, 195 horsepower is nice, but what have they done to increase the life of the belt? More horsepower will lessen the life.

    I am super excited, however in the past with higher power snowmobiles it was difficult to do clutch setup and read a digital display during really hard pulls. I like the needles and know at a glimpse where my RPM’s are or should be and NOT where to be. Now, what will this cost?

    • I tend to agree, prefer the needles

        I spent $450.00 on a vector gage with a NON digital tachometer for my 08 Nytro (supercharge) just to get the clutching correct. And at hard pulls it was still hard to read. lol

  12. Damn! And I’m almost done with customizing 2018 X3, SHIT!!

  13. When will it hit dealerships

    Everything looks great – Can’t wait to test drive it.

  15. To think that it was not long ago that the Rhino was the machine. Remember when the Teryx with it’s EFI 750 TWIN hit the market…then the mighty 800s?
    My how far we have come.
    Competition between the manufacturers is a wonderful thing…for us.
    Polaris is up to bat next I think. There dealer meetings are in July.
    I am looking at buying in the fall.

    New unit on order as we speak.

  17. biggest thought/question: how will this compare to the 2020 Polaris. I have been a can am fan but looking at them both its a hard call. I watch your channel and your surrounded by Polaris’s. Why are you an X3 fan when your buds have RZR’s
    lastly, when will XRC RR be available to purchase because that’s the one I am eye balling
