News of a sporty new side-by-side from Arctic Cat unveiled at a dealer show quickly spread through the off-road media a couple of weeks back, but Arctic Cat was very tight lipped on the matter. Only now has the Minnesota-based manufacturer had anything to say about it.
Below is a press release we received from Arctic Cat about its intriguing new machine. There really isn’t much new information about the vehicle (no pictures were included in the release), though it looks like it may be in dealerships within the next 12 months. We will keep you posted as soon as we hear anything else.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Arctic Cat showcased an unexpected ROV dubbed “Wildcat” during the close of their 2012 snowmobile dealer show in Nashville, TN.
Arctic Cat has strived to bring innovative designs and technology to their customers since 1962. With 2012 marking the brand’s 50th Anniversary, the bold off-road styling cues of the Wildcat’s bodywork coupled with its aggressive sport stance and interior suggest Arctic Cat will move to the forefront as the industry-leader in the pure sport ROV segment.
“This is the Year of the Cat! It’s also the Year of Excitement,” Claude Jordan, CEO told dealers in attendance. “Inspired by race bred and race proven designs, we are committed to giving our customers the highest-performance models they deserve in the snow and off-road categories, as well as future endeavors.”
Very few details were released regarding the Wildcat, but Jordan noted, “An extremely capable suspension is what all pure sport ROV owners are begging for, and we promise this will be an industry leader.” When asked about production dates, Jordan hinted, “You may see this in dealer showrooms during our 2012 fiscal year which would end next March.”
