Textron is going all out this season with the announcements of several new UTVs. The Prowler line now further expands on an already rich line-up of side by sides turning Textron the company to compete with, when it comes to releasing new products.
Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. announces the addition of three new vehicles to its Textron Off Road Prowler™ Pro lineup. The new, six-passenger Prowler Pro Crew XT brings quiet power and performance to the multi-passenger market, while the new three- and six-passenger Ranch editions offer premium accessories and a custom Atomic Copper color for a more customized look.
“We continue to develop state-of-the-art Textron Off Road vehicles that meet a wide variety of enthusiasts’ needs,” said John Collins, Vice President, Consumer for Textron Specialized Vehicles. “The new Prowler Pro XT Crew builds off of the innovative Prowler Pro platform and continues the legacy Textron has instilled in all of its highly engineered brands.”
Similar to its three-seat counterpart, the Prowler Pro Crew XT offers quiet gas power and unmatched reliability, with the addition of a second row of seating. The vehicle is powered by a whisper-quiet, 50-horsepower, 812cc EFI engine offering plenty of power to not only haul six people, but also additional cargo or game. To complement the engine, vibration-reducing mounts and bushings were used, and a tuned exhaust utilizes a rubber isolator with the muffler to lessen exhaust noise.
As a true work partner, the Prowler Pro Crew XT offers all the comfort needed for tough tasks and long days. The vehicle has 10 inches of front and 9.5 inches of rear suspension travel, 10 inches of ground clearance, and 26-inch Pro Terrain tires for a comfortable ride for all occupants. A 2,000-pound towing capacity, 1,500-pound payload and 1,000-pound cargo box capacity allows the vehicle to easily haul six people along with all the gear needed for a long day on the hunt or in the field. For added versatility, the vehicle’s six-person bench seating features removable passenger seats for additional storage space inside the cab. Its customizable and password-protected speed control can be set to ensure ranch and farm hands stay safe while on the job.
For ease of maintenance, the Prowler Pro Crew XT has toolless service components with easy-access panels, so the vehicle can spend more time in the field or at the hunt camp. The vehicle comes pre-wired to easily add accessories, and its standard 75-amp alternator provides plenty of power to operate various accessories and implements at once.
The Prowler Pro Crew XT joins the three-passenger Prowler Pro XT as part of the lineup’s electronic power steering (EPS) offering. Both vehicles are available in Dynamic Charcoal and Fire Red. In addition, the new Prowler Pro Ranch Edition and Crew Ranch Edition feature Atomic Copper paint, premium cut & sewn seats, hard top, halogen headlight with LED accent, HD front and rear bumpers, 27-inch Maxxis® Bighorn 2.0 tires, and a 4,500-lb WARN® winch. Rounding out the lineup is a non-EPS Prowler Pro in Marsh Green.
The Textron Off Road Prowler Pro line is built in Thief River Falls, Minn. All vehicles are sold with a 12-month warranty and will arrive in dealerships this fall.
