Boasting all-new, automotive inspired features and convenience, the 2015 Arctic Cat Prowler 1000 XT EPS steps up when other machines step aside. It’s the ultimate in side-by-side power, performance and passenger comfort, with new-for-2015 bodywork and rider-friendly engineering.

The new body design features an automotive style hood with a 3.0-cu.-ft. box capable of holding 25 lbs. of payload. Matching the premium Surlyn bodywork is a new dash and console layout featuring a large glovebox, center cubby and dash-mounted shift lever.

The whole design is accented with a new LED/halogen headlight system that provides improved lighting options and pioneering style points.

With improved occupant comfort a primary goal for the redesigned Prowler XT line, Arctic Cat delivered enriched ergonomics and expanded occupant space throughout the machine. All-new low-profile shoulder and foot restraints ease vehicle entry and exit while providing 3.125 in. of additional shoulder space for both occupants. A new fully variable tilt steering wheel provides an additional 3.0 in. of usable clearance for the driver’s legs, while more ergonomically friendly gas and brake pedals enhance driving comfort.

The Arctic Cat Prowler 1000 is powered by the burliest engine in its class: the H2 V-Twin featuring EFI and a new closed-loop engine management system with improved performance and mileage. That class-leading power and torque feed the Duramatic Automatic transmission, which offers High/Low/Reverse/Park and dynamic engine breaking. The front locking 4WD differential is activated with an all-in one 2WD/4WD/Differential rocker switch button for quick and simple shifts.

Thanks to its driver-friendly Variable Assist Electronic Power Steering (EPS) the hard-working Prowler changes direction easily and with confidence, whether it’s with a cargo box loaded with 600 lbs. of rock, plowing snow or navigating tough obstacles like rocks, deep mud or logs. The result is a light steering input effort, but with enough feedback so the driver senses the tire contact patch in relation to the terrain.

Double A-arm Front Suspension with 10″ of Wheel Travel

The Prowler XT chassis includes fully-independent, double A-arm front and rear suspensions boasting 10 in. of travel, 10 in. of ground clearance, and a rear mounted swaybar for enhanced ride quality. A rugged, composite tilting cargo box offering 600 lbs. of payload capacity and a pickup style tailgate backs up a ROPS-certified and Wildcat-inspired round tube canopy.
