Argo Celebrates 50 Years With Exclusive LE Model Of XTV Hot
Up to now we have not spent any time covering ARGO, but there hasn't been a particular reason for that. Though ARGO doesn't make a traditional "ATV or side-by-side", they do make a XTV aka Xtreme Terrain Vehicle with six or eight wheels, which is pretty darn cool! ARGO's are called XTV's for a reason: they work on land AND water. People don't just use these eight-wheeled beasts to tackle tough terrain, but to head out to the lake for some duck hunting. That is just nuts don't you think? Imagine being at the helm of an ARGO, pulling up to the bank of a body of water, and giving it the throttle to take to the water. Now that is a crazy thought, and you want to try it just like we do. ARGO's have been winning endurance races at the Mud Nationals for the last couple of years because instead of getting stuck in the muddy water, they just float through it.
For ARGO's 50 anniversary it has released a 2017 ARGO 8x8 Hunt Master encased in Mossy Oak Break-Up COUNTRY camouflage to celebrate the milestone. You can get all the details below from their press release. Look for an ATV ESCAPE review in the near future where we can move to the edge of some water and throttle it to keep on going!
