With an award-winning design and premium specifications, the 50-inch wide Wildcat Trail family continues to set the industry standard in handling, power to weight, suspension travel and pricing. For 2016 the Wildcat Trail and Wildcat Trail XT EPS are joined by the all-new Wildcat Trail Special Edition EPS for a triple-play in the popular category.
Modern technology brings you more horsepower, less weight, improved efficiency and long-lasting durability. The Arctic Cat designed 700 parallel-twin features EFI, 4-valves per cylinder and liquid cooling. This 60-plus horsepower 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. With 60-plus hp, the Wildcat Trail takes a backseat to nobody.
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 suspen- sion 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, pas- senger handhold and 3-point seat belts; plus easy-access hinged doors with industry- leading automotive style handles/latches to compliment 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.
The base-level Wildcat Trail comes with 12-in. steel wheels and half doors, and is available in Lime Green or Classic Red.
The Wildcat Trail XT EPS adds the steering ease of electronic power steering (EPS); machined cast-aluminum 12- inch wheels; color-matched suspension arms; and automotive-style paint in Team Arctic Green or Vibrant Red to complete the package.
The new-for-2016 Wildcat Trail Special Edition EPS includes the upgraded features found on XT EPS, plus comes with full doors; color-matched aluminum wheels; and a dash-mounted numbered plaque that highlights its limited availability. It’s available in True Timber Camo or Orange Metallic.
