— Textron’s takeover of Arctic Cat hasn’t produced a new Wildcat yet. Just released, the 2018 Wildcat shares the 2017’s specifications. A 951cc, single overhead cam, 8-valve, V-twin engine supplies the power. The suspension has 17 inches of travel up front and 18 in the rear using JRi compression adjustable shocks on the Wildcat X and fully adjustable Elka Stage 5 shocks on the Wildcat X LTD.
Although these 2018 Wildcats aren’t major advancements from last year’s models, at least the prices have remained relatively low. The Wildcat X is $16,999, and the Wildcat X LTD is $18,499.
