After putting a lot of focus on the pure sport side-x-side market for the past few seasons, Arctic Cat has made some sweeping changes to its Prowler sport utility line for 2015.
At first sight it is obvious that the Prowler has gone under the knife and received some serious restyling. Surlyn body panels – a technology borrowed from Arctic Cats snowmobile division – resist scratching and are proven to be tough and durable under the applications you put your UTV through.
Storage is a huge factor that Arctic Cat addressed on the Prowler in 2015. Under the automotive styled hood, there’s a 22.4-gallon weather sealed box, the glove box capacity has more than doubled and there’s also a cubby space in the center of the dash for holding a map or electronics.
The new headlights combine halogen and LED bulbs, controlled by a 4-position switch. This headlight system casts glorious light for evening riding or early mornings.
Fully variable tilt steering allows you to set the steering wheel to your comfort and provides 3-inches of additional legroom over the previous model when in fully up position, which makes ingress and egress into and out of the driver’s seat much easier.
As with all of Arctic Cat’s domestic built engines featuring EFI, the powerplant in the Prowler boasts the all-new closed-loop EFI system with catalyst exhaust that delivers 25% better fuel economy and lower emissions.
The 2015 Prowler is available with a 443, 545, 695 or 951cc engine and is based on the same chassis as its predecessor. It is a big step in the right direction for this line and we cant wait to get our first run aboard it. When we do, we’ll share our impressions with you first.
