2019 Textron Havoc Backcountry Edition and Wildcatt XX LTD Unveiled
Textron Off Road has been aggressive since taking the reigns from Arctic Cat and that continues for 2019 with the introduction of three more new Side-by-Sides – the base Havoc, Havoc Backcountry Edition and Wildcat XX LTD.
“We are excited to expand the Havoc and Wildcat XX offerings for 2019,” said John Collins, Vice President, Consumer for Textron Specialized Vehicles. “Both vehicles were highly anticipated and continue to see growth in the marketplace. The new models give enthusiasts even more options from which to choose to meet their specific needs and uses.”
Every Havoc receives new high-bolstered bench seats for 2019.
The Havoc and Havoc Back Country Edition join the Havoc X as Sport-Utility vehicles designed for both on-trail adventure and work. All Havoc models feature a 100HP EFI engine. The Havoc X comes equipped with FOX 2.5 PODIUM QS3 shocks with compression adjustment, 13 inches of ground clearance, industry-first extended cab for additional storage space, class-leading 2,000-lb towing capacity, and 600-lb cargo box.
