WildcatTrailSE_CamoOrg_2017-utvunderground.com

With an award-winning design and premium specifications, the 50-inch wide Wildcat Trail family continues to set the industry standard in handling, power to weight, suspension travel and pricing. For 2016 the Wildcat Trail and Wildcat Trail XT EPS are joined by the all-new Wildcat Trail Special Edition EPS and Wildcat Trail LE EPS in this popular category. Modern technology brings you more horsepower, less weight, improved efficiency and long-lasting durability. The Arctic Cat designed 700 parallel-twin features EFI, 4-valves per cylinder and liquid cooling. This 60-plus horsepower engine was designed specifically for the Wildcat Trail chassis and the engine feeds into the TEAM Rapid Response clutches and electronic selectable 2WD/4WD with front differential lock. With 60-plus hp, the Wildcat Trail takes a backseat to nobody.

The Wildcat Trail chassis features a 40/60-percent front/rear weight distribution for optimal handling at high speed. The driver and passenger are located 3 inches lower than the competition so you are seated near the low center of gravity, leaving occupants less affected by the movements of the vehicle inspiring greater confidence and control.

With industry-leading 10/10.5 inches of front/rear suspension travel and 10 inches of ground clearance, all Wildcat Trail models are built to deftly navigate trail obstacles. The front and rear double A-arm suspensions have a swaybar that keeps the tires planted while the suspension moves through its travel for unmatched traction and control. Premium FOX nitrogen gas-charged shocks smooth the ride.

Other comfort-and-control features include high back bucket seats with upper body supports, tilt steering, center console sport shifter, digital gauge, rear LED taillights, passenger handhold and 3-point seat belts; plus easy-access hinged doors with industry leading automotive style handles/latches to compliment the exterior lines. A 300-lb. payload in the rear cargo bed is large enough to carry a cooler and a Gerry can of gas, while the rear 2-inch receiver and 4-ply Carlisle Trail Pro tires were designed exclusively for the Wildcat Trail.

The base-level Wildcat Trail comes with 12-in. steel wheels and half doors,
and is available in Lime Green or Classic Red.

The Wildcat Trail XT EPS adds the steering ease of electronic power steering (EPS); machined cast-aluminum 12- inch wheels; color-matched suspension arms; and automotive-style paint in Team Arctic Green or Vibrant Red to complete the package.

The new-for-2016 Wildcat Trail Special Edition EPS includes the upgraded features found on XT EPS, plus comes with full doors; color-matched orange aluminum wheels; and a dash-mounted numbered plaque that highlights its limited availability. It’s available in True Timber Camo or Orange Metallic.

Also new for 2016, the Wildcat Trail LE EPS includes the upgraded features found on XT EPS, plus comes with full doors and color-matched black aluminum wheels. It’s available in True Timber Camo/Orange Metallic.

2016 HDX 700 XT Crew

HDXCrewXT_FireRed_2016-utvunderground.com

The all-new 2017 Arctic Cat HDX 700 XT Crew adds six-occupant versatility to the class-leading comfort, features and truck-like usability of the HDX line of ROVs. For riders who want the versatility to haul lots of gear and people, the new Crew sets benchmarks for comfort, space and usability.

Arctic Cat focused on maximum rider comfort with the HDX design, with emphasis on optimizing ergonomics and occupant space. Built on an extended chassis with a 31-in. longer wheelbase than the standard HDX models, the new HDX Crew features ample body and legroom for two rows of three occupants do deliver a class-leading ride experience for six passengers.

Credit for that comfort can be attributed to the 40/20/40 “bench style” 3-person seat used in both rows. These spacious seats are complemented by Arctic Cat’s optimized space management system, featuring low-profile shoulder and foot restraints that ease vehicle entry and exit while providing maximum shoulder space. An infinitely adjustable tilt steering wheel maximizes clearance for the driver’s legs, as do ergonomically friendly gas and brake pedals. Vehicle entry and exit have never been so easy and comfortable.

Matching the sizable occupant space is Arctic Cat’s renowned tilting cargo box. This transformable 2-into-1 composite box can haul 1000 lbs. of payload, plus it’s easily convertible into a flatbed for added versatility. Multiple tie-down options ease securing loads, while dual built-in 18-gallon (is it two 18-gal spaces or two 9-gal spaces?) side storage compartments provide convenience when adding extra payload. A 2-in. rear receiver hitch is backed by a 1,500-lb. towing capacity for truly truck-like hauling capability.

Premium quality Surlyn bodywork features an automotive style hood with a 22-gallon-sized box offering 25 lbs. of payload that’s water-resistant and easily accessible. It’s complemented by a smart dash and console layout featuring a deep 1.9-gallon glovebox, center cubby and dash-mounted shift lever. And it’s topped with an ultra-bright LED/halogen headlight system.

Power comes from the liquid-cooled H1 700 SOHC 4-stroke engine with the spot-on calibration of a closed-loop Electronic Fuel Injection for maximum performance and mileage. That power transfers through the Duramatic Automatic transmission, which features High/Low/ Reverse/Park and dynamic engine breaking. The front locking 4WD differential is activated with an all-in-one 2WD/4WD/ Differential rocker switch button for quick and simple shifts.

These key features are matched by driver-friendly Variable Assist Electronic Power Steering (EPS) that begins at engine idle to provide significantly reduced steering effort when in 4WD, especially when the differential lock is engaged. Arctic Cat EPS reduces the torque necessary to steer the HDX when changing direction when fully loaded or navigating tough obstacles like rocks, deep mud or logs.

The chassis features fully independent, double A-arm front and rear suspensions boast 10 in. of travel with adjustable FOX FLOAT coil-over shocks for comfort and control. A full 10 in. of ground clearance and a rear-mounted swaybar provide an enhanced ride quality. The HDX XT Crew comes with cast aluminum wheels, Duro Kaden tires and is available in Team Arctic Green or Fire Red.

2016 HDX 700 XT EPS / SE EPS / Hunter Edition EPS

HDX700SE_CamoOrg_2017-utvunderground.com

From loading and hauling, to dumping and towing, the 2016 Arctic Cat HDX 700 XT EPS, HDX 700 SE EPS and HDX 700 SE Hunter Special EPS are built to tackle jobs with the most usable features and 3-person comfort available anywhere. They’re the 3-rider pickup trucks that turn chores into fun, and adventure into relaxation.

The signature features of the HDX models are the 40/20/40 “bench-style” 3-person seat and versatile rear cargo box. Large enough to hold items as large as a pallet, the transformable 2-in-1 tilting composite cargo box (with tailgate) can haul 1000 lbs. payload, plus it can convert into a flatbed in just minutes to add even greater versatility. Multiple tie-down options ease securing loads, while dual built-in 18-gallon side storage compartments provide convenience when adding extra payload. A 2-in. rear receiver hitch is backed by a 1,500-lb. towing capacity.

Redesigned last season, the premium quality Surlyn bodywork features an automotive style hood with a 22-gallonsized box offering 25 lbs. of payload that’s water-resistant and easily accessible. It’s complemented by a smart dash and console layout featuring a deep 1.9-gallon glovebox, center cubby and dash-mounted shift lever. And it’s topped with an ultrabright LED/halogen headlight system that provides improved lighting options.

Arctic Cat focused on maximum rider comfort with the HDX design, with emphasis on optimizing ergonomics and occupant space. The low-profile shoulder and foot restraints ease vehicle entry and exit while providing 3.125 in. of additional shoulder compared to previous models. They’re matched by an infinitely adjustable tilt steering wheel that provides maximum clearance for the driver’s legs, plus ergonomically friendly gas and brake pedals. Vehicle entry and exit have never been so easy and comfortable.

Power comes from the liquid-cooled H1 700 SOHC 4-stroke engine with the spot-on calibration of a closed-loop Electronic Fuel Injection for maximum performance and mileage. That power transfers through the Duramatic Automatic transmission, which features High/Low/ Reverse/Park and dynamic engine breaking. The front locking 4WD differential is activated with an all-in-one 2WD/4WD/ Differential rocker switch button for quick and simple shifts.

These key features are matched by driver-friendly Variable Assist Electronic Power Steering (EPS) that begins at engine idle to provide significantly reduced steering effort when in 4WD, especially when the differential lock is engaged. Arctic Cat EPS reduces the torque necessary to steer the HDX when changing direction with a loaded cargo box or navigating tough obstacles like rocks, deep mud or logs. The result is a light steering input effort, but with enough feedback so the driver senses the tire contact patch in relation to the terrain.

The chassis features a Wildcat inspired round tube canopy. The fully independent, double A-arm front and rear suspensions boast 10 in. of travel with adjustable FOX FLOAT coil-over shocks for comfort and control. A full 10 in. of ground clearance and a rear-mounted swaybar provide an enhanced ride quality.

The HDX XT comes with cast-aluminum wheels, Duro Kaden tires and is available in Black, Team Arctic Green or True Timber Camo.

The limited edition HDX 700 SE EPS features an electric bed lift; 5,000-lb. WARN winch; gun scabbard with mount; and a special dash-mounted, numbered plaque. It’s available in True Timber Camo/ Orange Metallic.

The limited edition HDX SE Hunter Special features an electric bed lift; 5,000-lb. WARN winch; gun scabbard with mount; and a special dash-mounted, numbered plaque. It’s available in True Timber Camo.
