CAMOUFLAGE UTV BUYER’S GUIDE

— The hottest new looks for 2019 —

Camouflage is much more than a fashion statement; for hunters, it’s a way of life. That is why every UTV manufacturer offers one or more camouflage patterns for 2019. Kawasaki has three camo patterns—from the new True Timber HTC on the all-new Mule Pro-MX to the Matrix Camo Grey Limited Edition Teryx models. Yamaha switches over to exclusive Realtree Edge on Viking, Viking VI, and Wolverine X2 and X4 UTVs, while Textron offers Stampedes and Prowlers in True Timber Kanati. Honda and Polaris have their own exclusive camo patterns, or you can wrap your UTV in aftermarket patterns.

CAMO UTVS FOR 2019

CAN-AM: Mossy Oak’s Break-Up Country pattern uses dramatically larger limbs, leaves, branches and shadows to achieve added depth, obliterate your outline and fuse you with the terrain. On the Maverick Trail 1000 DPS, MOBYC is an extra $100, and the Defender HD10 Hunting Edition also sports Kolpin Stronghold Gun Boots, a 4,500-pound winch, an H-D front bumper/skid plate and more for $19,699. It’s also available on the Defender X mr for an extra $100 ($19,399).

KAWASAKI: The 3D-pattern Realtree Xtra Green Camo claims to be the most effective early-season camo pattern on the market. Realtree APG-Xtra Green Camo is available on the Teryx 800FI for an extra $1300, but that also includes extra LED headlights and a roof. The Camo Teryx4 is $500 more than the base model. Realtree Xtra Green is also an option on the Mule SX XC ($650 extra), Mule Trans4x4 4010 ($500) and Mule Pro-FXT models ($1300).

KAWASAKI: There is also a Matrix Camo Grey option for Teryx and Teryx4 Limited Editions for an extra $200.

KAWASAKI: The new Mule Pro-MX EPS is available in True Timber HTC Green for $150 more than the Pro-MX Limited Edition, but it doesn’t get the LE’s two-tone aluminum wheels.

2018 Honda Pioneer 500

HONDA: Phantom Camo is tested and developed for maximum effectiveness in North American environments during any season. Honda’s reality-based, non-repeating Natural Camo is back on the Pioneer 500 for $600 extra. It’s also available on the larger Pioneer models.

POLARIS: Polaris’ Pursuit Camo pattern is said to blend into the environment. The Ranger 570 comes in PPC for an extra $600, while the Ranger Crew XP 1000 EPS comes in a PPC wrap for an extra $200. There is a General 1000 Hunter Edition in PPC with dual gun scabbards, gun boots, a 4500-pound winch and a sport, low-profile front bumper for $18,999.

KYMCO: The multi-dimensional True Timber pattern can be used any time there is green, from early spring to late fall. The Kymco UXV700i, UXV450i and MXU450i 4x4s come in True Timber Camo for $500 more, and Kymco offers a UXV gun-boot kit with mount for $274.99.

YAMAHA: For 2019, Yamaha switches from Realtree Xtra to Realtree Edge Camo on Vikings and Viking VIs for an extra $900.

The Wolverine X4 also comes in the new Realtree Edge for $450 more.

TEXTRON OFF-ROAD: Possibly the best early-season camo pattern available, Textron Off-Road’s Stampede 900 EPS and Stampede 4 come in True Timber Kanati Camo for an extra $600. Textron also has electric Prowler EVs and EV-iS models in Kanati Camo for $400 more.
