• 1000 H2 V-TWIN 4-STROKE ENGINE WITH EFI: A 951cc, H2, liquid-cooled V-Twin EFI engine provides the efficiency advantages of four valves per cylinder with its Pentroof Hemispherical Combustion Chamber. It’s a combination that provides more complete combustion, which directly translates to more power, more efficiency and cleaner exhaust.
  • FULLY INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION: Our independent suspension keeps all four tires on the ground, providing maximum traction. The 10 inches of ground clearance and 10 inches of suspension travel only adds to what this machine can do.
  • DIGITAL POWER SPORT GAUGE: The Power Sport gauge packs one heck of an informational punch. The digital gauge features all the essential operation information indicators: RPMs. speedometer, trip mileage, gear indicator, digital clock and fuel indicator.
  • ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING (EPS): Arctic Cat's electronic power steering (EPS) activates automatically at the moment of ignition. Steering your machine requires minimal effort, even at slow speeds and rock crawling.
  • INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE TILT STEERING: The infinitely adjustable tilt steering allows you to position the steering wheel in that "just right" position for any rider.
  • MAXXIS BIGHORN TIRES WITH ALUMINUM RIMS: Excellent shock absorption, large shoulder lugs for added traction and a wide footprint make this tire a perfect match to all that power. Aluminum rims give it that finished look.
  • DUAL HALOGEN WITH LED ACCENT HEADLIGHTS: The LED light bar and halogen headlights team up to provide a brighter beam and modern look.
  • REAR 2-INCH RECEIVER: Hooking up to your boat trailer, utility trailer, SPEEDPoint™ attachments or whatever you need to haul doesn't get much easier with this rugged, 2-inch rear receiver.
  • AUTOMOTIVE-STYLE HOOD: The automotive-style hood opens from the front – just like your truck – making it easier to gain access to the massive 22.4-gallon underhood storage box.
  • DASHBOARD SHIFT LEVER WITH PARK: The dashboard shifter keeps the power at your fingertips. Need to stop on a hill? Move the shifter to Park to keep from rolling down.
  • HIGH-QUALITY SURLYN® BODY PANELS: The Prowler XT™ uses super-tough Surlyn by DuPont™, a resilient resin-based material with a proven record, borrowed from Arctic Cat snowmobile technology. Surlyn requires no painting and is scratch-resistant.
  • 2/4 WD WITH ELECTRIC FRONT DIFFERENTIAL LOCK: Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. Tackle more rugged terrain by locking the front differential with a flick of the switch.
  • 600-LB.-CAPACITY TILTING REAR CARGO BOX: 600 pounds of pure get-it-done capacity. That’s what you get with the Prowler® rear cargo area. With the flick of a lever, the box tilts to dump your contents. You put it in there, let gravity take it out.
  • DUAL BUCKET SEATS: These seats are designed to hold you firmly in place and are more comfortable. Get a little dirty? No problem. Wipe them down or hose them off.
  • LARGE UNDERHOOD STORAGE: Extra storage space is something everyone is after. With 3 cu.-ft of storage under the hood, bring everything you need for the day - and then some. Water-resistant? You bet it is.
