— Checking out the new Teryx & Mule lineup —
For 2019, Kawasaki continues to expand its lineup of refined Pro Series utility recreation UTVs with the new Mule Pro-MX, and the Teryx line gets new looks. Here’s what you need to know about the new arrivals.
The new Mule Pro-MX is a smaller, narrower (60 versus 64 inches wide) vehicle than full-size Pro Series Mules with seating for two rather than three or six. It’s powered by a single-cylinder, 695cc, single-overhead-cam, four-valve engine rather than the 812cc, three-cylinder engine used in the larger models. Its fully automatic, dual-range continuously variable transmission includes automatic engine braking.
Base, LE and camo versions are available, and all have power steering, selectable 2WD/4WD, a lockable rear differential and four-wheel disc brakes. The SE comes with painted bodywork, aluminum wheels and a roof. The camo model has a roof and steel wheels. The base model has steel wheels and no roof. Double-A-arm front and rear suspension features spring preload-adjustable shocks. The tilting cargo bed can carry 699 pounds, and the vehicle can tow 1500 pounds.
The Pro MX EPS is available in Timberline Green or Bright White for $11,999. The Pro MX EPS LE comes in Firecracker Red for $12,499. The camo model is $12,649. All models have a three-year warranty.

The sporty 2019 Teryx and four-seat Teryx4 return with new color choices but no mechanical changes. Teryx UTVs are powered by a 783cc, single-overhead-cam, eight-valve V-twin with a fully automatic transmission. The 4WD system has selectable 2WD/4WD with a locking front differential.
These machines have double-A-arm front and rear suspension with 8 inches of travel up front and 8.3 inches in the rear using Fox 2.0 piggyback reservoir shocks.
