2013 Arctic Cat ATVs Announced

Bruce Smith August 6, 2012

Arctic Cat’s American-made 2013 ATVs/UTVs set to hit the dealers

Arctic Cat’s 2013 line-up of ATVs is growing just as fast as their machines are speedy, and the compay touts they are made in the USA–Minnesota to be more exact. 

Built Right, Right Here,” says Kale Wainer, the head of Arctic Cat media relations. “ –It’s how Arctic Cat ATVs and Side by Sides are created with a shared belief found in every Arctic Cat worker who tightens a bolt, welds a piece of metal or places a decal.

“From our engine production facility in St. Cloud, Minnesota to our Factory in Thief River Falls, Minnesota – The Passion of an American company is how we build the greatest off-road vehicles!”
