Arctic Cat’s Prowler XTZ1000
Big-bore still king in 2011; race-inspired utility machine brings new features to the jobsite
Nobody can talk enough about the big-bore performance of the 2011 Arctic Cat Prowler XTZ.
The Baja race-winning XTZ returns for 2011with an all-new race-inspired round-tube canopy, Electronic Power Steering (EPS), new steering wheel, digital gauge and heavy-duty 14-in. aluminum wheels.
EPS, new to the Prowler XTZ for 2011, enhance the 1000’s industry-leading handling. Arctic Cat’s Variable Assist EPS allows steering assistance to the XTZ before it even starts to move at idle.
This is a huge benefit to conserving the rider’s input energy when in 4WD, especially when the differential lock is engaged; Arctic Cat EPS reduces the torque necessary to steer the XTZ when changing direction with a loaded cargo box or navigating tough obstacles like rocks, deep mud or logs.
Combining one of the industry’s largest engines, a 951cc V-twin, with sport-inspired suspension geometry, the performance minded Prowler XTZ provides the ultimate in untouchable recreation.
Arctic Cat engines have power where it matters: the ground. Arctic CatH2 engines have more pulling power,more climbing power, and better acceleration than any other side-by-side in its class.
The powerhouse 1000 V-TwinH2 has a 951cc, 4-stroke monster-performance mill. The Duramatic automatic transmission has dynamic engine braking with Low, High, Neutral and Reverse.
The stance and suspension were race-bred and performance-calibrated with additional ride-in.
What is ride-in? The Arctic Cat Prowler XTZ will squat roughly 2 inches (depending on driver/passenger sizes) while providing 10 inches of ground clearance and 10 inches of suspension travel. The lower ride height and center of gravity inspire riding confidence around the jobsite as well as at play when aggressive cornering and high-speed handling are important.
The XTZ boasts high performance suspension geometry with the best gas-charged monotube
shocks on the market.
A front-locking 4WD differential with an all-in-one 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock rocker switch button for quick engagement shifting and rear-mounted swaybar
for improved trail driving.
