Best-in-class horsepower, ride and utility are featured on new models
“Headlining the 2011 XUV models will be the brand new Gator™ XUV 825i – the fastest and most powerful Gator™ ever produced,” said Rene Lubbers, Tactical Segment Marketing Manager, for Utility Vehicles. “Anyone with a sense of adventure and a love of the outdoors will enjoy putting its best-in-class advanced engine system to the test.”
Boasting 37.2 kW (50-hp), it is the highest-powered engine in its class with superior low-end torque for taking on even the toughest tasks, trails, and terrain. Kilowatt power is delivered by an 815cc, liquid cooled, inline 3-cylinder engine featuring 4 valves per cylinder, dual overhead cams and electronic fuel injection.
“And, the 825i can travel at speeds up to 70 km/h (44 mph),” emphasised Lubbers. “This is the fastest Gator™ we’ve ever built and this is an example of the commitment we’ve made to provide top-of-the-line XUVs for the outdoor enthusiast.”
All the new Gator™ XUV models have a completely re-designed front and rear independent suspension system that delivers a superior ride through rough terrain. The new models are designed for less body roll and superior side-hill stability with either no-load or maximum cargo. Also, all the models sport an entirely new braking system that improves stopping performance over previous models.
“John Deere has a long heritage in the utility vehicle category with the Gator™ as a tried and true workhorse,” said Lubbers. “With the introduction of the 2011 XUV, the new Gator™ line-up now delivers the innovation and top performance consumers desire, as well as the best in class utility, reliability and quality we’re known for.”
The Gator™ XUV also features 680 kg (1500 lbs.) of towing and 635 kg (1400 lbs.) of payload capacity. The all new hybrid metal and composite cargo box offers 0.464 cubic metres (16.4 cu. ft.) of capacity, the most in its class, and an available factory installed spray-in bed liner with 20 integrated tie downs to help keep cargo in place. The sides of this cargo box are removable as well, giving the user a flat bed that’s easy to load and unload from any side.
All Gator™ XUV 855D and 625i models will be available in the traditional John Deere green and yellow, with the exception of the 825i which will be available in the camo colour. All models will be available exclusively through the John Deere dealer network.
In addition to the XUV 825i, John Deere also offers the 625i and the 855D to round out its new line of crossover utility vehicles. Here are the basic specifications for those two models:
