Simply put, no other machine can take you further than a Prowler XT 650. Arctic Cat has continually improved and expanded the Prowler line-up since the introduction of the Prowler XT in 2006. Combining sport riding features while not losing any of its functional “work” qualities, the highly agile Prowler XT provides the ultimate all-around recreation machine.

The cab of every Prowler is equipped with dual bucket seats and driver/passenger seat belts, a center console complete with drink holders and dual 12v accessory plugs. The open air cab has a full canopy and various storage compartments like a dash mounted tray shelf, glove box with door and an easily accessible molded tool kit located under the passenger-side seat.

Keeping true to Arctic Cat ATV heritage, the Prowler was designed to conquer any job when it comes to storage and hauling capacities. Lift the hood on any Prowler and you will find a storage compartment that can hold 25lbs of hunting supplies, tools, and can double as a cooler to store ice. The composite cargo bed has a brand new box latch for easier box dumping so you can throw in 600lbs. of the harshest payloads and the Prowler won’t even whimper.

Hardcore jobs and hardcore fun are only executed when provided with Arctic Cat-built engines, drivetrain and suspension systems. Born and bred at Arctic Cat the powerhouse 650 H1 has a 641cc, 4-stroke torque monster mill. The Duramatic automatic transmission has dynamic engine braking with Low, High, Neutral and Reverse. The Prowler is just as easy to use as an Arctic Cat ATV; just gas it and go.

Arctic Cat engineers have laid to rest the claims of “best” suspension travel and ground clearance by other manufacturers.

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 for sure footed offroad prowess. Spring preload adjustable shocks are used on all four corners for the ultimate in terrain and load adjustability, while off-roading capabilities are enhanced by 12.5” of ground clearance, a front locking 4wd differential and rear mounted swaybar for improved trail driving.

Other amenities of the Prowler XT include a brand new front bumper and fascia, cast aluminum 14” wheels with black painted inlays are standard with 26x9R14 Goodyear MTR front tires and 26x11R14 Goodyear MTRs in the rear for the ultimate in offroad traction.

In the end, owning a Prowler XT 650 means you rise above the rest.
