To the truck’s defense, very few factory-line pickups could handle that steep grade of loosely packed soil.

While not the typical go-to vehicle for pulling a full size pickup out of a tight jam, in this situation, the Can-AM proves its worth as a premium value all terrain recreational vehicle.

Decidedly a Can-AM – Not a Can-NOT
