John Deere, a world leader in providing advanced products and services for customers whose work is linked to the land, introduces the Gator XUV835M Honor Edition Utility Vehicle, designed to pay tribute to military veterans. These Special Edition models feature desert sand exterior panels, military-inspired graphics, and several model upgrades. The units will be available for a limited time, and can be pre-ordered now by connecting with your local John Deere dealer.

The Gator XUV8345M carries 1,000 pounds of payload and tows a ton with a 812cc triple; the Honor Edition adds military style and function.

The Gator XUV835M Honor Edition is available in an open-station configuration, as well as an HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) Cab configuration. In addition to the new desert sand exterior color panels, the Honor Edition models come standard with the following:

●  Military-inspired model numbers, brand, and graphics

●  Black alloy wheels with Maxxis® Bighorn® 2.0 Extreme Terrain radial tires

●  Black vinyl 40/60 split-bench seat

●  Sport steering wheel

●  Half-doors (open station models)

●  Black roof

●  Stone headliner (HVAC cab models)

●  Brush guard

●  Deluxe cargo box with spray-in liner, brake lights, and taillights

●  Cargo box power lift

All model-year 2022 full-size Gator Utility Vehicles, including the Honor Edition models, can be ordered with Predator Heavy Duty all-terrain radial tires ($665). These are an excellent option for use on hard surfaces or intermediate off-road applications. Predator tires provide additional shock absorption and increased tread life while reducing ground pressure and terrain impact. In conjunction with the launch of the Gator XUV835M Honor Edition, John Deere is supporting The SAVE Farm, which provides farming, ranching, and agribusiness training and healing programs for service members, veterans, and their families.

                              Honor Editions upgrade from 26-inch Terrahawk AT tires to 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0s.

“John Deere has a long history of supporting the military and our veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect this country,” said Maureen McCormack, Go-to-Market Manager, Gator Utility Vehicles. “We are proud to honor these brave individuals through our new special edition Gator Utility Vehicle while supporting organizations like The Save Farm.”

Those interested in the Gator XUV835M Honor Edition can contact their local John Deere dealer to learn more or place an order. For more information about John Deere and the full line of Gator UV products, visit the John Deere website.

Additionally, John Deere offers the Career Skills Program partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense SkillBridge program, allowing transitioning service members the opportunity to match their leadership and technical skills with jobs at John Deere. The SkillBridge program helps servicemen and women begin their post-military careers by interning at a John Deere production facility or dealership during the last five months of their military commitment.

The Gator XUV835M starts at $16,199 and the XUV835M Cab Cross-over Utility Vehicle starts at $22,149. Prices are not up on the John Deere website for Honor Editions; see for more information.
