New from Arctic Cat ATV & UTV for 2016


(8/23/2015)

Arctic Cat continues its foot-on-the-gas approach to new product development in its first wave* of 2016 ROV and ATV models, with seven all-new machines as well as a power-up for its popular Wildcat Sport models. This first wave of 2016 model Arctic Cats will be available at dealerships beginning in September, along with an all-new full line of SPEED High Performance Accessories for Arctic Cat co-developed by Robby Gordon.

Four of the seven new machines are Special Edition models built in Limited Quantities, each featuring a dash-mounted, numbered plaque. Those models are highlighted below:

 

2016 Arctic Cat HDX 700 SE Hunter Edition. By ArcticInsider.com

Hunters can add another trophy to their shop, in the form of the all-new HDX 700 SE Hunter Edition featuring an electric bed lift; painted aluminum wheels; a 5,000-lb. winch; gun scabbard; and True Timber Camo livery

 

2016 Arctic Cat Wildcat X Special Edition. By ArcticInsider.com

The ultimate desert ROV gets a desert-theme color and graphics package for '16. The Wildcat X Special Edition features aluminum bumpers; color-matched beadlock wheels; roof; and Desert Tan painted bodywork.

 

2016 Arctic Cat Wildcat Trail Special Edition. By ArcticInsider.com

The 50-in. wide Wildcat Trail Special Edition gets full doors; color-matched aluminum wheels; and an industry first color combo of True Timber Camo /Orange Metallic.

 

2016 Arctic Cat TRV 700 Special Edition. By ArcticInsider.com

Arctic Cat nails the 2-up category with a TRV 700 Special Edition featuring a 3,000-lb. winch; color-matched aluminum wheels; and the choice of True Timber Camo/Orange Metallic or Black Metallic.

 

Alterra is the name of most Arctic Cat ATVs for 2016. ArcticInsider.com

Arctic Cat debuts the new Alterra name on its ATV models (formerly called XR), signifying that All-terrain vehicles should be built for All-terrains.

Alterra 400 and 450 models – Arctic Cat took the brand-new body style and endless capabilities of the full-sized Alterra, and adapted them for the more compact 400 and 450 mid-sized models. Featuring new bodywork, racks and headlights these Alterra models are part workhorse, part warrior and are more nimble, lightweight and versatile than the competition.

 

2016 Arctic Cat HDX 500 XT. By ArcticInsider.com

The HDX XT is the ultimate working machine. To complement the 2016 HDX 700 XT an all-new 500 is ready to take on the tougher tasks with the bring-it-on body style and automotive-style hood. The payload is the payoff, with an industry-leading, tilting 2-in-1 cargo box converting to a flatbed for 1,000lbs of carrying capacity, on top of rugged FOX FLOAT coil-over adjustable shocks (700 only).  Side and underhood compartments store your work essentials, while tilt steering and the three-person bench seat are perfect for when your cargo includes a couple extra helping hands.

Pound for pound, performance is what makes the Wildcat Sport models Purr in popularity. A 5% increase in engine power derives from an all-new free-flowing exhaust system. All Sport models feature a low center of gravity and high power-to-weight ratio, giving you better acceleration, climbing ability and top-end speed so you can ride in confidence.

Wildcat X and 4X models stay true to their rugged roots delivering professional performance, but receive all-new Duro PowerGrip tires and an attractive, aggressive price point compared to the competition

 

Plus, Arctic Cat and SPEED have partnered to bring enthusiasts a vision for the future with a full line of SPEED High Performance Accessories. These accessories are designed to take your passion for Arctic Cat vehicles off the beaten path and are co-developed with the legendary off-road racer, Robby Gordon.

Arctic Cat is offering 32 North American models in its first wave of introductions for 2016 that will be available in September at Arctic Cat dealerships.

Check back, I'll have more stories on the new machines in the coming weeks.

Thanks for reading.

I've been bailing water with AC for a couple years. Now I'm just going to bail. Can't believe they completely dumped the MP 1000. Instead of putting the Wildcat X engine and clutch in it, they quit making it. Seriously disappointed with them but time to move on.

I'm not disappointed but I'm not super impressed either, was hoping to see them do something more with the wildcat X like turbo charging the engine.

I really like the new special editions atvs and wildcats. But I really hope arctic cat does something big next year. For their atvs they need to have a 800-850 engine and a faster 1000 around 85hp. They need to update the mud pro with better tires and radiator relocated to the front rack. Also they need something to compete with the can am renegade and polaris scrambler.

Since there seems to be some upset folks with the wildcat..

Did you not see the video that they announced they will have a turbo wildcat for 2017 (date stated by countrycat)

Personally I commend cat on taking the time to make sure their R&D is complete and its solid before it comes into consumers hands..

Wildcat X it is Arctic Cat! top dog and I am really disappointed about no having the motor hp over 100 hp for 2016. It is like they decided to take all models left over from 2015 and stamped with a 2016 year and give this crap to the consumer as new models.
I regret so much waiting to buy my new Can Am 101hp Marv. because of the same Arctic Cat 2016. They better step up their game and keep up all other manufactures in the side by side business.

seems half the lineup is missing or im not on the right page?
NO mud pro 1000
NO diesel
NO DVX300
only one TRV from 7 last year
no new XR(Alterra) chassis on TRV (this is what i was waiting to trade on)
and what happened to the cool smoked lights and push bar form last years limited XR models?
must be a lot of left overs in the system to be releasing a major trimmed down lineup.

Awesome great looking machines -- will they compete when off the trailer ?

Very nice machines. The new ATV and Prowler chassis are serious upgrades. The colors are very nice. The problem is power. With everyone, including Honda and Cats "partner" coming out with innovative new products. This roll out isn't going to gain market share. Not sure where the crew cab prowler is either.

I carted around the 1st Arctic Cat ATV, the Bearcat, in 1995 to all the dealer shows. It didn't even have body work, just a frame, engine & tires. Crazy how things have changed 20 years later.

i like the special edition color and graphics on the TRV plus the cat eye lenses and metal racks. Not a fan of the XR. To much plastic on the font. Bulky looking.

Good news on the TRV front...all new Alterra TRV models are scheduled to be available in February 2016. Engine sizes of 500, 550, 700 and 1000. In addition to the entirely different body and styling, the rear seat and rear rack is also completely reworked from what we currently have with the popular TRV models. On a related note...The all-new 2016 90 youth Alterra and the all-new Prowler 500 50-inch is scheduled to release in February 2016 too. The all-new HDX 700 Crew is slated to ship a few weeks later in March 2016.

Tom - is that the second wave of ATV, UTV'S
Tom Rowland says:
8/27/2015 5:26:00 PM

AllenO: You are likely correct in your suggestion above. While we were ordering the 2016s in Orlando no one was mentioning anything about a wave 1 or wave 2, but I see it mentioned occasionally since returning.
MNickles says:
8/28/2015 8:47:00 PM

Tom, is there any work concerning the engines in the second wave of 1000 atv's? Not interested in any more Wildcat news. Already have 2 SXS I'm selling. I'm wanting a more powerful Mudpro 1000.

Not only do they blow cold, but those annoying south winds don't apaepr to be drying up any of the standing water in the RRV .Even at 16C with winds to 80Km in the south and to 50km in Mb the ditches as of this morning were still running, and late last week standing water in the fields from GF to Fargo .

Note that the false 0.5 mm readings for the 6th and 17th have been reveomd from the Winnipeg airport climate stats. So officially, Winnipeg has only 0.5 mm of precip this month.. which fell on the 1st. We're approaching three straight weeks now with no measurable precip at the airport.. http://cdgzauddra.com [url=http://fnmtcd.com]fnmtcd[/url] [link=http://lakynrhzko.com]lakynrhzko[/link]

1.I enjoy blog posts about…value in program diitrsvey and presenting program for( learning styles )Just like cats, ..girls are individuals ! Shy cats, loud cats, skilled cats and goofy cats, cheeky cats and scaredy cats ! So have you ever wondered why ? Why every living creature can be so vastly different from it's own brothers and sisters ? We can be raised in the same environment, with the same values, by the same parents with the same genetics yet one of the main over riding differentials are our perceptions of the world. What we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel,is perieved, ingested digested by our own sensory metabolism. So we need to, as leaders be concious of our program stimuli. With this in mind we can better understand every girl or every cat that comes to us ;o)4.I’d love to write a post. I’m emailing my idea on…Sensory integration and learning styles http://yqutbqilg.com [url=http://ruzlcrwlyvj.com]ruzlcrwlyvj[/url] [link=http://hvbzlgyty.com]hvbzlgyty[/link]
