Arctic Cat Releases Mid-Year ATVs and UTVs
Arctic Cat has clearly been busy since the first 2016 lineup announcement last year and recently unveiled a handful of new models.
The 2017 Arctic Cat HDX Crew features two sculpted bench rows of seating, accommodating up to six occupants. The 1000-pound capacity, 2-in-1 cargo box transforms into a flatbed and the Crew has plenty of additional storage options. The fully independent front and rear suspension has double A-arms and carries the load. The HDX Crew also features 10 inches of travel and 10 inches of ground clearance and is powered by Arctic Cat’s 700-class engine.
The 2017 HDX Crew is available in Fire Red, True Timber Camo and Team Arctic Green.
Cat has also taken the covers off the new two-up 2016 Alterra TRV. Alterra features carry over to the TRV such as the front and rear SpeedRack II system with its accessory system attachments. The Alterra TRV is offered with Electronic Power Steering and a choice of powerplants including 1000, 700, 550 and 500 and is available in a variety of colors.
The 2017 Prowler 500 is designed to serve the demand for a mid-size Utility Side-by-Side that’s value-priced. This well proportioned 4X4 occupies a mere 106.4 in. long by 56.4 in. wide space and has bench seating. The 500 comes equipped with a 1,500-pound towing capacity, automatic transmission, 8.5-gasson fuel capacity, and 500-pound cargo bed capacity.
Mudpro 1000 SE
To celebrate all the mud lovers out there, Arctic Cat brings back the Mudpro 1000 in a Special Edition model, which includes an Arctic Cat/Warn Winch, 28” Maxxis Zilla Tires, heavy-duty front and rear bumpers, graphics and more.
Arctic Cat is also offering a new Youth ATV – the Alterra 90. It kids the opportunity to ride an ATV just like mom and dad.
For hunters and outdoorsmen, True Timber Camo and Blaze Orange models are available across a wide range of models including the TBX, HDX and Wildcat Trail.
