2016 Arctic Cat Prowler 500

Arctic Cat is jumping into the midsize side-by-side segment for 2016 with the addition of the midsize Prowler 500. This prowler is smaller than its full-size Prowler siblings, but it still comes fully loaded with all the comfort and work features you need in a UTV and expect from Arctic Cat. The Prowler 500's payload and towing capabilities seem to be up to snuff with 500 lbs of payload and 1500 lbs of towing, which means it is not a slouch in getting the job done.  This Prowler also comes with the Duramatic fully-automatic transmission, 2wd, 4wd, and 4wd-w/diff lock, EBS, hydraulic disc brakes, double a-arm suspension, and a 500-class engine. With all those goods the midsize Prowler should be the little UTV that "could". Not sure what we think about the looks though... You do get all of this for a price of $9499, making it a value-type side-by-side. 

 Here are the details from Arctic Cat

  • New mid-sized chassis delivers nimble maneuverability without sacrificing payload or two-occupant comfort

  • 2-passenger bench seating inside a spacious cab offers ample comfort, and is complemented by an infinitely adjustable steering wheel

  • 500-lb. capacity, tilting rear box features multiple tie-down points to handle a full range of hauling requirements.

  • 1,500-lb. towing capacity and 2-in. receiver hitch offer ample towing options

  • 443cc SOHC 4-stroke EFI engine with closed-loop engine management system provides class-leading power in a durable, quiet running package that’s fuel-efficient.

  • Double A-arm front and rear suspensions with 7.5 inches of travel and 10 inches of ground clearance to handle a full- range of terrain conditions.
