John Deere unleashed its most performance-driven Gator UTVs yet, according to the manufacturer. The 2011 lineup of crossover utility vehicles (XUV) balances work and recreation.
“Headlining the 2011 XUV models will be the brand new Gator XUV 825i – the fastest and most powerful Gator ever produced,” David Gigandet, tactical marketing manager, UTVs, said in a company press release.
The new UTV features 50 hp 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 44 mph,” said Gigandet. “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.”
In addition to the XUV 825i, John Deere also offers the 625i and the 855D.
