Ski-Doo re-energizes and resets the bar
For 2024, Ski-Doo introduces the MXZ X-RS with the new trail version of the Rotax 850 E-TEC Turbo R featuring an industry-first water injection system, becoming the most powerful 2-stroke engine available. With that extra power, engineers also added the strengthened components of the Competition package to create an even tougher MXZ X-RS to withstand many miles of big bumps and rough trails. Ski-Doo is also expanding the fifth generation of the REV platform to more models, including many with 4-stroke power. With the introduction of 4-stroke power in the REV Gen 5, the MXZ and Renegade lines of snowmobiles reset their positioning in the larger Ski-Doo lineup. The 2024 Backcountry models also see some huge changes with a move to the REV Gen5 and will offer a more athletic look, trail precision and straight-line tracking improvements, better balance of control and fun factor. Finally, the deep snow crowd gets a re-engineered Freeride model that the most hardcore riders will appreciate as it establishes a new standard of handling for the riders that continue to push creativity to new levels in their extreme deep snow maneuvers.
"The new MXZ X-RS is the ultimate trail sled, truly at the pinnacle of high performance. Weve combined the best components to deliver an unforgettable ride that will leave the most ardent skeptics smiling from ear to ear, said Jérémi Doyon-Roch, Manager, Global Marketing, Snowmobile and Cross Brand Initiatives at BRP. "Weve also deployed the REV Gen5 platform on the Renegade, Backcountry and Grand Touring, to offer riders the best possible technologies, refined performance and ultimately, the best experience ever on a snowmobile.
Ski-Doo is also pleased to continue offering the MXZ 120 and 200, along with the MXZ and Summit Neo models making it easier for anyone and everyone to get in on the fun of riding a snowmobile.

"At Lynx, we build snowmobiles for riders as tough as our sleds, driving our community to find new limits in the ride and break through them, declared Jérémi Doyon-Roch. "Our new 2024 models are no different. The expansion of the Radien2 platform, the Commander RE* package and the new technologies we are introducing make our sleds the best snowmobile to overcome whatever winter throws at us.
