Roomy and quiet operator station
Whether it is a completely open operator station or a factory installed cab, the interior has been redesigned with comfort and ergonomics in mind.
There’s a gear shift control and differential shifter to the dash, tilt steering, and a bench seat with diver adjustment.
This unit features a three-person cockpit.
Powerful diesel engine delivers superb starting, idling, and throttle response
The machine is powered by an 854-cc (52.1-cu in.), 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-cycle diesel engine. It produces 48 Nm of torque (35.5-lb-ft) of torque at 2600 rpm, and delivers superb starting, idling, and throttle response during operation.
The Indirect-injection diesel design with glow plugs ensures fast starts in cold temperatures, and overhead valves give greater efficiency and fuel economy. Thanks to molybdenum-coated pistons and a high-stiffness cylinder block and gearcase, there’s quiet operation throughout the entire range.
A spin-on oil filter with drain bracket and oil drain plug – as well as a dry, replaceable, single-element air cleaner with remote intake – enable easy servicing. The see-through coolant recovery tank permits the operator to check the coolant level without having to remove the radiator cap.

Dual A-arm front and rear suspension provides a smooth ride over challenging terrain and excellent hauling characteristics
To complement the robust frame, the XUV is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. A dual A-arm front and rear suspension provides a smooth ride over challenging terrain and excellent hauling characteristics.
The entire suspension system has been optimized to handle no cargo to maximum cargo without compromising ride quality or vehicle stability.
200.7 mm (7.9 in.) of travel in the front and 231.14mm (9.1 in.) in the rear provides ample wheel travel to keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction, excellent ride quality, and vehicle control. Heavy-duty nodular cast-iron knuckles support the constant-velocity (CV) shaft and wheel, and the vehicle is fitted with maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation. Coil-over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain, and there’s a rear sway bar for lateral stability.
Superior terrain capability
The Gator™ XUV Crossover Series Utility Vehicle has a precision-engineered drivetrain system that fully utilizes engine power, optimizing acceleration, hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities. Power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to the transaxle.
The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT™) air intake draws in 50 percent more air vs. previous designs to reduce heat and the amount of water ingestion into the CVT system.
Extra-durable deluxe cargo box ensures hard-working performance and longevity
The deluxe cargo box consists of a 15 percent glass-filled polypropylene composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise.
The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. The tailgate has been improved, features truck-like performance, and can be operated with one hand – and the standard installed lanyards can also be removed to lower the tailgate to 150 degrees for convenient loading and unloading tasks.
The deluxe cargo box is easier to latch, unlatch, raise, and lower with the integrated handle design and gas assist. A prop rod is provided to hold the box in the upright position for operator convenience, as well as limit box pivot travel. It also offers integrated tie-down points for increased versatility – in the corners inside the bed, on the load guard behind the operator station, and on the underside of the cargo box frame. There are also tie-down bars on either side of the cargo box.
The deluxe cargo box also easily converts to a flat bed. The flatbed configuration allows loading larger cargo.
A range of optional accessories are available.
