New Wildcats loaded with features

Arctic Cat has updated its midsize Sport UTV lineup with the introduction of the 2017 Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport and Trail Special Edition models.

Each model comes equipped with a host of goodies to set them apart from their base model brothers, including 3,000-pound WARN winch with synthetic rope, polycarbonate half windshield, aluminum wheels, and premium shock packages. Arctic Cat says the Wildcat Sport SE is the only UTV in the industry that features KING single-speed adjustable aluminum gas shocks.
