Prowler® 500 Red

The minimum operator age of this vehicle is 16 with a valid driver's license.


  • 500 H1 4-STROKE ENGINE WITH EFI: This 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with EFI delivers smooth, consistent acceleration. The closed-loop EFI is real value you won’t find in most other mid-sized Side by Sides. Not only does this EFI system deliver improved fuel economy and reduced emissions, you get better power and more confident starting during winter.
  • MULTI-FUNCTION DASH: The Prowler 500's dash is more like your own personal command center. Easy to shift lever, 2/4 WD electronic front differential lock switch, override switch, Power Sport gauge and 12v outlet for your toys.
  • INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE TILT STEERING: The infinitely adjustable tilt steering allows you to position the steering wheel in that "just right" position for any rider.
  • DIGITAL POWER SPORT GAUGE: The Power Sport gauge packs on heck of an informational punch. The digital gauge features all the essential operation information indicators punch. The digital gauge features all the essential operation indicators: RPMs, speedometer, trip mileage, gear indicator, digital clock and fuel indicator.
  • FULLY INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION: The Prowler 500 features fully independent front and rear suspension with double A-arms to give you a smooth ride and ample ground clearance whether you’re riding on a trail or off.
  • CLASS-LEADING ENCLOSED STORAGE: It's just one more way we've designed this machine with the user in mind. You won't find a mid-sized Side by Side with more enclosed storage.
  • 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.
  • 500-LB.-CAPACITY TILTING REAR CARGO BOX: 500 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.
