John Deere is offering two new special edition Gator utility vehicles that forgo the traditional John Deere green for a blacked out appearance.

“The Midnight Black XUV825i and Midnight Black RSX850i are designed for those customers yearning for a John Deere Gator like no other,” John Deere says in a release.

Each model comes with a custom matte black paint scheme with charcoal gray graphics. The vehicles are available now in limited quantities at select dealers.

“More and more outdoor enthusiasts are on the lookout for limited build custom vehicles,” says David Gigandet, John Deere marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. “These new models provide customers the durability and productivity they’ve come to expect with Gators, but in a unique and stylish theme that will capture the attention of John Deere fans and the utility vehicle market.”
