For riders who demand maximum power and the most automotive features, the 2016 Arctic Cat Prowler 1000 XT EPS is in a class by itself. Boasting a full array of automotive-inspired features and conveniences, the most powerful model in the Prowler line steps up when other machines step aside.

Redesigned last season, the 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 1.9-gallon glove- box, center cubby and dash-mounted shift lever. And it’s topped with an ultra- bright LED/halogen headlight system that provides improved lighting options.

Arctic Cat focused on maximum rider comfort with the Prowler 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 space for both occupants 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.

The burliest engine in the Prowler line powers the 1000 XT: the H2 V-Twin featuring closed-loop EFI and the promise of maximum power for all riding conditions. That class-leading power and torque feed the Duramatic Automatic transmission, which offers 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.

Thanks to its driver-friendly Variable Assist Electronic Power Steering (EPS) the hard-working Prowler changes direc- tion easily and with confidence, whether it’s with a cargo box loaded with 600 lbs. of rock, plowing snow 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 Prowler XT chassis includes fully-independent, double A-arm front and rear suspensions boasting 10 in. of travel, 10 in. of ground clearance, and a rear-mounted swaybar for enhanced ride quality. A rugged, composite tilting cargo box offering 600 lbs. of payload capac- ity and a pickup-style tailgate backs up a ROPS-certified and Wildcat-inspired round tube canopy.

Additional features include cast- aluminum wheels, Duro Kaden tires and a rearview mirror. It’s available in Black.
