BRP’s Ski-Doo MXZ X 850 E-TEC has been named Snow Goer magazine’s Snowmobile Of The Year where innovation, change, industry benchmarks and market appeal determine the winner. This marks the second straight year a Ski-Doo snowmobile has been honored with the prestigious award.

In presenting the award, Snow Goer highlighted the drive and innovation BRP demonstrates “The brand that has spent the past two decades developing norm-challenging components like engine-reverse, tether based anti-theft systems, and adjustable carbide runners; cleaner burning engines like the SDI, E-TEC and ACE platforms; and entirely fresh chassis platforms like the original REV and its following iterations has done it again.” The publication goes on to emphasize the how BRP looks for creative solutions in the new MXZ model and Rotax 850 E-TEC engine with things like open toe holds, forward adjustable riser, forged crankshaft and iron piston ring carrier – things that move the industry forward. has also recognized the Ski-Doo MXZ X 850 E-TEC as 2017 Snowmobile of the Year stating, “This is no make-over design. It’s new, it’s bold, it works and it’s our first choice for 2017 Snowmobile of the Year.” That makes it a clean sweep for the two publications that name a single machine as the best.

The brand continues to collect even more hardware for the trophy case as other publications have also recognized BRP and Ski-Doo snowmobiles with their awards. American Snowmobiler named the Summit X 850 165 model their Mountain Editor’s Choice Award, The MXZ X 850 Best High Horsepower 2-Stroke Trail Sled, and the Rotax 850 E-TEC Best New 2-Stroke Engine. Sled Head 24/7 named the Summit 850 E-TEC Best In Class Mountain Sled and named the Summit X 850 E-TEC King of the Mountain, and the Summit SP 850 as the runner up!
