UTVs UNDER $10,000

If UTV prices are keeping you from getting behind the wheel and out on the trail in a new machine, we have good news for you. There’s a surprising selection of UTVs under $10,000! You’ll find sport and recreation machines in this guide, along with all the important information you need to know to make an informed choice.

ARCTIC CAT PROWLER 500

The Prowler 500 is a two-seat recreation machine that is ideal for tight trails, confined work areas and smaller budgets. A fully automatic transmission makes it easy to drive and the single cylinder, 443cc, four valve engine and selectable 2WD/4WD give it impressive capability in challenging terrain. Independent double A-arm front and rear suspension offers a smooth ride. Its 56.4-inch width means this machine is economical to transport too, because it fits in most full size pickups. The Prowler 500’s tilting bed can hold 500 pounds and the machine will tow 1500 pounds.

Arctic Cat offers four accessory kits for the Prowler 500. The Adventure kit includes a roof, windshield, rear-view mirror and rear panel. The Enforcer Kit includes a winch, winch mount, front bumper and rear bumper. The Protection Plus kit includes a roof, door kit, windshield, rear panel and rear-view mirror.

HONDA PIONEER 500

Surprised to see a Honda in a guide to UTVs UNDER $10,000? There are two! The light, agile Honda Pioneer 500 is a great recreation machine for drivers who don’t need lots of speed to have fun. Its 50-inch width lets it use width-restricted trails and makes it easy to transport. It also has Honda quality and a geared, five-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode and no drive belt. The 500 can carry 450 pounds on its rear rack, and it can tow half a ton.

HONDA PIONEER 520

The second Honda in our guide to UTVs UNDER $10,000 is the 2021 Honda Pioneer 520,  a new version of the Pioneer 500 with a tilting bed that can carry 450 pounds of cargo, a larger, more powerful 518cc engine, 43cc larger than the 500’s. This machine seats two and is 50 inches wide, so it’s perfect for width-restricted trails and confined work areas. It also fits easily in the bed of a full-sized pickup. Full of fuel, the Pioneer 500 weighs only 1065 pounds, so it has an outstandingly light, agile feel. The Pioneer 520 has a belt-less, five-speed automatic transmission that can also be shifted manually with car-type paddle shifters. The transmission also provides predictable engine braking to all four wheels when in four-wheel drive. The drive system is selectable 2WD/4WD but not front differential lock. Longitudinal engine mounting orients the crankshaft front to back in the chassis, which routes the flow of power straight to the wheels without any right-angle detours, reducing powertrain friction and putting more power to the ground.

This recreation utility UTV can tow 1000 pounds from its receiver-type hitch. Independent front and rear suspension with dual-rate springs and adjustable spring preload provides a comfortable, well-controlled ride. For convenience, the Pioneer 500’s side nets swing with the door. There is storage space under the seats and under the hood, and the cabin is surprisingly roomy for such a small vehicle. The contoured seats are comfortable and offer enough support for sporty driving. It’s available in Red, Olive, Reactor Blue and Honda Phantom Camo. Pricing starts at $9499.
