Rumors have accelerated about a new Pure Sport SxS UTV from Can-Am. In fact, hardly a day goes by without another story or sighting.
Here’s what we know the engine/drivetrain may be based on a system used by the Ski-Doo division at BRP to drive a rather unique vehicle called the Elite. This twin tracked snowmobile positioned the driver and passenger similarly to a UTV and used a ji-normous 3-cylinder 4-stroke for motivation.
The recently out-of-production Elite was built for only two model years this decade. The Elite’s CVT based drive system would be completely workable in our estimation in a wild Pure Sport UTV application.
Don’t look for a fuddy-dud utility side-by-side from Can-Am. BRP has been true to its word since announcing its mantra: to not produce anything that isn’t fun and the best performing in its class’.
We think best-in-class means most powerful. Stay tuned.
