While the UTV market is expanding with sportier, leisure oriented vehicles like the Polaris Ranger RZR and Kawasaki Teryx, utility is still the backbone of the segment.
Club Car Inc. of Augusta, Ga. produces the XRT line of vehicles and the flagship XRT 1550 is utility to the core. For Club Car, the idea behind the XRT 1550 was to build a tough, rugged, easy to use vehicle and it is backed up by a 24-month/2,000-hour limited warranty.
Powering the XRT 1550 is a Kawasaki 23 horsepower, air cooled, 675 cc twin cylinder engine. An optional 20 horsepower, 3-cylinder , liquid cooled, 719 cc diesel engine from Kubota is also available as an option.
“You’ve got two different choices, both very high quality engines, both industrial strength engines and you’re really going to get a lot out of both of those engines,” says Club Car regional manager Noel Phillips.
