Delivers quick acceleration and provides a top speed of more than 77 km/h (48 mph)
The Gator™ XUV590E and XUV590M Crossover Series Utility Vehicle is powered by a 586-cc (35.8-cu in.), inline twin-cylinder, electronic fuel-injected (EFI) gasoline engine. The engine is electronically controlled through an engine control unit (ECU) to ensure optimal engine performance.
Delivering 23.8 kW (32 hp*) at 5600 rpm, these liquid-cooled engines offer top speeds of up to 77km/hr. These vehicles are designed for cold-weather starting (tested to -28.9°C [-20°F]), and for rugged functionality, with a wet-sump lubrication system, spin-on oil filter and oil pan drain accessible through skid plate for easy servicing.
They offer an 875-W (65 maximum amp) charging system for accessory capability.

Designed for all-day comfort with many vehicle conveniences
An operator-centric design provides class-leading ergonomics and comfortable seats. There’s easy entry/exit and pass through for operator and passenger, an optimal seating position provides more legroom, and overall excellent comfort while driving.
The vehicles offer best-in-class sealed storage volume of 9 gal. (34 L) with a large in-dash glove box and under hood storage. An additional 9 gal. (34 L) of under-seat storage is available on the S4 models. The hinged hood rotates open without tools for access to storage
Two cup holders are located within reach of the operator’s station, and the hour-meter comes standard to assist in maintaining regular service intervals. A standard 12-V direct current (VDC) outlet is conveniently located on the instrument panel, and there are seven predrilled dash switch locations with snap out caps for various electrical accessories.
Occupant protective structure (OPS) are standard with three-point seat belts and passenger side grab handles located on front post.
Large, extra-durable, one-piece cargo box ensures hard-driving performance and longevity
The cargo box consists of a high-density polyethylene copolymer composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise. This large, one-piece design has rounded inside corners to ensure material removal when tilted. The composite box is highly ribbed and supported with a welded, steel-ladder structure to ensure hard-driving performance and longevity. The three highly-styled exterior pieces are made of TPO for extra durability.
The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. It features truck-like performance and can be operated with one hand.
The cargo box offers integrated tie-down points for increased versatility. Flip-up D-shaped rings are situated in all four corners inside the cargo box bed, and there are tie-downs at multiple points along the edge of the cargo box side walls.
A range of optional accessories are available to help suit your storage needs.
CAUTION: Carrying extra-long cargo that extends beyond the box can adversely affect stability.
Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners
To complement the comfortable operation station, the XUV560 and XUV590 Series are equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. This unique suspension set-up provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.
The engineering team, in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1®, NASCAR®, and INDYCAR® teams, built a capable suspension system for class-leading operator comfort no matter what the terrain.
203 mm (8 in.) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control, and adjustable coil-over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain. The solid anti-roll bar with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling.
The unique, independent rear-suspension design ensures a great ride and protection for the CV shafts and the high-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle, lower A-arm, and upper link supports the high stresses of the shocks, CV shaft, and wheels with the toughness to survive impacts from boulders
Optional Fox™ Shocks are available to factory install

Power steering for excellent handling characteristics and low steering effort
The Gator™ XUV590M Utility Vehicles are equipped with rack and pinion steering with power steering. These automotive-type systems exhibit excellent handling characteristics, as well as responsive steering and low steering effort.
Optional electric power-assist steering (EPAS) system is available. EPAS offers many features – including an Anti-kickback feature to reduce the amount of steering unwinding when traversing difficult terrain. The system is speed sensing and adjusts steering effort as the speed of the vehicle changes. A torque sensor measures steering wheel input so the on-board computer can provide the appropriate output for various driving situations.
The vehicles have a tight turn radius of 3.7 m (12.3 ft) for excellent maneuverability, and the low steering ratio (lock-to-lock steering wheel rotations) provides more responsive steering and less operator input. The Ackerman steering design provides more responsive steering, decreases tire wear when used on hard surfaces and is turf friendly.
NOTE: Some competitors use parallel steering instead of Ackerman steering.
