Taking on Double Sammy in Sand Hollow with our Can-Am Commander XT-P

Can-Am Commander XT-P

By Jon Crowley

I absolutely love to off-road at Sand Hollow State Park in Utah. The place is absolutely beautiful, and there are lots of trails for every level of rider. This year, I once again attended the SxS Adventure Rally and decided to bring our 2021 Can-Am Commander to see how it would handle this type of rock crawling.

One of my favorite trails at Sand Hollow is called Double Sammy. It isn’t that long of a trail, but there is a new challenge at every turn. Although I took on several other trails with the newly redesigned Commander, I really wanted to see how it would do on Double Sammy.

Check out the video below to see how it performed:


  • Comfortable and capable UTV on this trail.
  • I really like the low-range on the 2021 Commander. Adequately low for technical rock crawling even with the larger-than-stock tires.
  • Turf Mode enabled rear differential allows for tight turning radius.
  • Smart-Lok front differential (XT-P model only) gives you three options to control the differential from Trail to Locked.
  • 32-inch tires rub slightly with front sway bar disconnected.
  • One thing I’d like to see improved is the visibility over the hood.
