Arctic Cat Prowler 550 XT

Arctic Cat released the Prowler 550 XT in 2010 and some key changes have already been made for 2011. The Prowler 550 XT returns as the side-by-side that allows you to have it all: good looks, performance, and fun without breaking the bank. An all new Baja racing-inspired round tube canopy, new digital gauge and heavy-duty 14″ aluminum wheels highlight the all-new sport-inspired look for 2011.
Arctic Cat engines lead the industry in quality and power. The 550 H1 engine has a dominant 545cc, SOHC, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine and is designed for a wide torque curve,with the smoothest power delivery via Electronic Fuel Injection. The Duramatic automatic transmission has dynamic engine braking with Low, High, Neutral and Reverse with an automotive-style, console- mounted parking brake.

Storage adorns the 550 XT from one end to the other. Lift the hood and you will find a compartment that can hold 25 lbs. of gear and can double as a drainable ice cooler. The composite tilting cargo bed has a 600-lb. payload with a pickup-style tailgate.

The cab of every Prowler is equipped with comfortable, sculpted dual bucket seats with 3-point driver/passenger seat belts, a center console complete with drink holders, and dual 12V accessory plugs.

The front and rear suspensions are fully independent with a double A-arm front design and a double A-arm rear design with 10″ of suspension travel and 10″ of ground clearance. Spring preload adjustable shocks are used on all four corners for the ultimate in terrain and load adjustability and 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 an industry-leading ride while out on the trail.
