Arctic Catreleased its 2015 ATV and ROV (side-by-side) line last night at its dealer show in Las Vegas. Not everything that happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, so here’s a Cliff’s Notes version of all that’s new:

There are 15 new models, most notably a new XR ATV line, new Prowler XT models and a new 60-in. Wildcat Sport that slots in between the original Wildcat and Trail models.

Here’s the skinny on the new Prowler 1000, 700 and 550 XT models, which get all-new, automotive-inspired bodywork, plus myriad improvements in rider comfort:
