ALL-NEW MUD PRO MAKES TRIUMPHANT RETURN
There’s been an empty mud hole in the Alterra line of ATVs. One missing a competitive machine performance-engineered by the brand who created the category, until now – The all-new Alterra 600 Mud Pro is making a triumphant starting line return as one of the boldest all-new Arctic Cat ATV entrants for 2023. The Mud Pro is born, bred and corn fed to churn 28-inch mud tires all day long thanks to an entirely new 600cc single-cylinder, EFI engine, new drivetrain and performance-spec clutching.
NEW ALTERRA 600 TRV
Speaking of pioneering a category, Arctic Cat created the Two Rider Vehicle, and for 2023, re-imagines the all-new Alterra TRV models with the venerable new 600 engine cradled in a performance-chassis with lower center of gravity and nod to narrow ergonomics so rider and passenger can comfortably explore every trail, every day.

The Prowler Pro is known for its quiet 50-horsepower, 812cc EFI engine, comfortable ride, unmatched capabilities, ample storage, and durability. Last year, Arctic Cat made significant improvements to the three-person Prowler Pro and six-person Prowler Pro Crew side-by-sides including a new suspension with more ground clearance — up to 13 inches. It also has enhanced half-shafts to match the added capabilities of the revised suspension and a new performance-tuned CVTech clutch that is perfectly suited to utility applications, with Arctic Cat-tuned Trailbloc drive and Invance driven clutches for increased performance, smooth low-speed engagement, and long life. Arctic Cat also improved the engine cooling system to reduce fan run time and enhance engine performance. All models are equipped with an aggressive new bumper with integrated headlight protection and new aluminum, seven-spoke wheels that provide the perfect finishing touch.

What happened to the Stampede and Havoc? That Collins guy from Textron said he was tired of hearing the “R” word (Ranger) at Haydays and the Stampede and Havoc were the best on the dirt. I guess he was wrong!
Collins is the biggest blowhard I have ever dealt with. All bluster and bravado, and completely FOS.
Thank goodness. Even from Augusta?
Hayward Holdings, Inc., a global designer, manufacturer, and marketer of a broad portfolio of pool equipment and technology, announced today the appointment of John Collins as Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer, effective May 16, 2022 Collins will report to Hayward’s CEO Kevin Holleran (IIRC he’s also one of the screw ups who was in charge of AC for a bit)
That Mud Pro is Sexy as Hell!
Mud pro does look good. But how do they convince former 700 and 1000 mud pro owners to trade in on a 600?
In an era of “bigger is better” how can they compete for sales with just a single cylinder 600?
Have you ridden one? It is the heart of the market share, 570 – 600 motors. Not sure why people think they need more?
They don’t. Anyone who wants to replace their CAT 700 or 1000 will go with the Outlander/Renegade 850/1000, Scrambler/XP 850/1000, Brute Force 750, King Quad 750, Grizzly/Kodiak 700, or even the ancient Honda 680. Any of these are good choices, and are higher in horsepower for their size, and usually have more confident handling compared to the old CATs. I don’t care how good the new chassis allegedly is, if it ain’t got the power, the HP hungry won’t buy it.
Well the Cat 700 has less power than the 600. The 1000 has been gone forever as well. It’s not allegedly. It’s a fact. It rides and handles as well if not better than any other ATV I have been on.
Well then, the 700 must’ve been weak. Or the numbers from the runt are inflated. Just like the 165HP class 800 that actually makes 154.
2017 isn’t forever ago. Just before asstron took over, before they deduced that a twin cylinder ATV was too expensive, and they couldn’t make enough profit per unit.
It’s really hard for you to accept facts. Sign of weakness from what I have read. I have a 600. Buddy has a 7. I am quicker off the line and faster up top. Not that I care. I would have been fine on a 450 if it came with EPS
I agree jeff, there is a place for the 600 in the line up. But the 600 is there whole line up and only just sitting on it it has a cheaper feel to it than the competition. Again a new line up and not much to get excited about. Textrons off road has gotten pretty lame. I’m praying the sled launch coming up is not a huge let down too,people are excited and hopefully we will be happy with the “revolutionary ” new sled.
Ride one! Best wheeler I have ever ridden. Can there be improvements? Heck yeah! The gauge is cheap, but I added the Garmin. Some of the service items are strange. Need to drop the right lower control arm to do the rear transaxle. Not hard to do, just different. The seat is very comfortable and the handling is fantastic! It is quiet, quick with a very smooth transmission. Would I buy again? No question!
The buzz term “Revolutionary” is overused by snowmobile OEMs and I think its going to be a while before we see something truly revolutionary from any OEM. In the 60+yrs of the snowmobile industry, I would consider maybe three things revolutionary…Slide-Rail Rear Suspension, Independent front suspension and rider-forward positioning.
Really? Hard for me to accept facts? Ok, here’s some facts for you to accept.
1. OTHER MANUFACTURERS OFFER BIGGER MACHINES BECAUSE FAST RIDERS WANT THEM. Obviously, you are HAPPY being the runt of the littler. Slow riders don’t need more than a 600.
2. OTHER MANUFACTURERS SELL THOSE BIGGER MACHINES BECAUSE FAST RIDERS BUY THEM. asstron would SELL 1000s if THEY MADE THEM. You like this new chassis so much? Let’s see how it would handle REAL power.
I got your “sign of weakness” hangin’ right here pal. Still waiting for a time and place my little ancient 500 can stomp your modern 600 like a stringy jackrabbit…Or maybe, if that’s too scary for you, I’ll use the 1998 Polaris Magnum 425 4×4 in my fleet, or how about the 1987 Suzuki LT4WD? Think you’d have a chance then?
Who the HELL needs power steering on a 450?! Jeez, sprout some muscles would ya?
I knew the Karen would come out. Grow up Dave!
I knew you were unable to buy big. Nothing wrong with that. Live within your means. One day you can bump up to a class leading 600. Oh, and an 800 Is coming.
Ah, Back to the old Karen response! Like a scared child you run to mama!
Who says I am unable to buy big? I offered some of the weaker ships in my fleet for you to fight to reduce your fear. I suppose stomping you with the 2012 GTi 1000 would do, but then you’d gripe “Oh, the mean man with the 1000 beat my little 600! Wah! Wah! Mommy! Mommy! He’s not being nice!” Make up your mind man. 250? 425? 500? 1000? Which’ll it be? Or perhaps something more your size, a DS650? That’d be a REAL massacre.
Oh, an 800 is coming. And you know this how? If this is true, more than likely, its just that 812cc DOG from the baby carriage lineup. Why develop a new engine? THAT COSTS MONEY! CUTS INTO PROFIT!
I don’t know what mama has to do with it Karen. Yout response made no sense, but that I’d what you are. Have a good one K!
Still wrong, and clueless about whats going on at AC, and not smart enough to put together anything more than a childish insult for a reply.
Ok Kevin. You are one step off from Karen.
Shoot Krom, that “insult” didn’t even make enough sense to be called an insult, not to mention it’s terrible spelling and grammar! What a mook that guy is.
New model looks great! headed in right direction. Still need big V-twin in ATV.
SXS is still missing 60″-50″ sport model. Feel like Kymco relationship is on the rocks. As many people who love there WC 700 (including me) its odd its still missing. Hopefully new model with bigger twin coming soon?
I think the days of the V twins are over. Was told by my dealer that an 800 is in the works as the 600 is modular in design and there is plenty of room for a bigger cylinder. Time will tell. I don’t need anything bigger than a 600. Just mild trail ride and push snow from my driveway.
Single just doesn’t have the fun factor of a twin. The sound and torque is addicting! Will admit there is no difference once moving and inline twin wins on tip end power. Would be interesting to see a small bore triple in smaller SxS to replace 700 Twin
wow the 600 atvs would be a great sell in europe ! hope they sell again – AC says they cant handle europe emmissions?? but how does polaris do that with the 570? pete/europe
