— New models from a new UTV brand —
Arctic Cat recently joined forces with Tracker, a big name in boats, to form Tracker Off Road. Tracker UTVs will be available at Bass Pro Shops stores all over the country, and the 2020 lineup includes many models that are identical to 2019 Arctic Cats, except for big price reductions on most models and subtle visual changes. Here’s a look at the 2020 lineup of Tracker UTVs.
Tracker’s XTR1000 is mechanically identical to Arctic Cat’s excellent base Wildcat XX sport UTV, right down to the 130-horsepower Yamaha three-cylinder engine, convenient fully automatic transmission, extra strong cage and outstandingly rugged chassis with double shear steering and suspension mounts and Fox 2.5 Podium QS3 shocks. This 64-inch-wide machine has 18 inches of travel front and rear. Full doors and 30-inch tires on 15-inch wheels are also standard equipment. The biggest difference is the price. The XTR1000 sells for $17,999, $2700 less than the 2019 Wildcat XX!
The 2020 SVX1000 is equipped just like Arctic Cat’s base Havoc, with an exciting 100-horsepower inline twin engine and close to 13 inches of travel front and rear, and its price—$14,499—is $1800 less than the 2019 Havoc! This sport/recreation machine comes with bolstered bench seats, full doors, power steering, 27-inch tires on steel wheels, an extended cab to hold your gear and a useful tilt bed that can carry 600 pounds of cargo. Trail, Backcountry and Hard Cab accessory packages are available. There’s also a TrueTimber Edition with camo bodywork and a 4500-pound Warn winch for $15,199. An accessorized model is shown in the photo.
Tracker’s three-seat 800SX is nearly identical to Arctic Cat’s Prowler Pro XT, with a silky three-cylinder, 50-horsepower engine, and suspension with 10 inches of plush travel up front and 9.5 inches in the rear. Like the Prowler Pro XT, the 800SX also comes with power steering and aluminum wheels, but the price is $10,999, $2000 less than the 2019 Arctic Cat! The passenger seats are removable to provide extra storage, the 800SX can carry 1000 pounds in its tilt bed and tow a ton. Trail, Backcountry and Hard Cab accessory packages are available, as well as a TrueTimber Edition with camo bodywork, 4500-pound Warn winch, 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn tires, and a front brush guard bumper for $11,699.
Tracker Off Road’s six-seat 800SX is a mechanical twin of Arctic Cat’s Prowler Pro Crew, and it’s priced at $12,999, $1800 less than the 2019 Arctic Cat! It’s powered by a smooth, quiet, three-cylinder 812cc engine with 50 horsepower. It can tow a ton and carries a half ton in its tilt bed. Removable passenger seats provide extra storage space. The 800SX has 26-inch tires, 10 inches of front suspension travel and 9.5 inches in the rear for a luxury ride. There are also Trail, Backcountry and Hard Cab accessory packages and a Truetimber Edition with camo bodywork, 4500-pound Warn winch, 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn tires, and a front brush guard bumper for $13,699.
If you like Arctic Cat’s Prowler 500, you’ll love Tracker’s 500S; it’s the same machine, and it’s $7999, $1000 less than the 2019 Arctic Cat! The 500S is powered by a 443cc four valve engine. It has selectable 2WD/4WD and independent double A-arm front and rear suspension. This machine can carry 500 pounds in the bed and tow 1500. Tracker offers Trail, Back Country and Hard Cab accessory packages for the 500S
The Tracker EV is an electric UTV that’s just like Arctic Cat’s Prowler EV, even the $10,499 price is the same. It has full time 4WD, seats four, and the rear seats convert to a cargo deck. The 38-horsepower, 72-volt drivetrain features regenerative braking. Independent MacPherson front suspension joins solid axle suspension in the rear. There’s also a TrueTimber Edition for $10,899 with camo bodywork and a Warn winch.
