With an award-winning design and premium specifications, the 50-inch wide 2018 Textron Off-Road Wildcat Trail sets the industry standard in handling, power-to-weight, suspension travel and pricing for side-by-side enthusiasts. For 2018 the Wildcat Trail, Wildcat Trail XT and Wildcat Trail Limited deliver all the top performance benchmarks in this popular category.
Modern technology brings you more horsepower, less weight, improved efficiency and long-lasting durability. The 700 parallel-twin engine features EFI, 4-valves per cylinder and liquid cooling. This fun and sporty 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.
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, 3-point seat belts, integrated glove box, and easy-access hinged doors with industry leading automotive style handles/latches to complement 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.
