It seems Arctic Cat is looking to sell several ATVs by offering a full-size ATV with 700-class power at a 400-class price with the introduction of its 2017 VLX 700 ATV. At a price point of $5,999 those ambitions of a full-size ATV at a mid-size ATV price is a reality. The VLX 700 has Arctic Cat's 695cc H1 engine making the ATV a big-bore. There are several goodies including 2wd and 4wd, automatic transmission, closed-loop fuel injection, a rear 2" receiver hitch, and all the specs of a full-size big-bore ATV. This appears to be a great ATV at a great price. We shall see... Below are the facts about the Arctic Cat VLX 700 provided by Arctic Cat along with the specs. If you are in the market for a full-size ATV then you might want to consider taking a look at this one.
