Key Features:
  • Comfortable interior with automotive-type controls: Steering wheel, left-side foot brake pedal/right-side foot accelerator pedal, center-mounted console shifter and parking brake lever, turn-to-start ignition switch, indicator lights and 12-volt accessory outlet render the Rhino totally userfriendly.
  • Liquid-/oil-cooled five-valve 660cc four-stroke engine—the biggest and most advanced engine ever used in a side-by-side—and light weight add up to the best power-to-weight ratio of any side-by-side model in the industry.
  • *Industry-exclusive fully automatic Ultramatic™ transmission with dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse is the most advanced drive system available. Maintaining constant belt tension reduces wear, gives instant throttle response, and provides industry-exclusive all-wheel downhill engine braking.
  • *Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command™ In/Out 4WD feature lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD—all with the simple push of a button.
  • Fully independent four-wheel suspension: Double-wishbones front and rear deliver 7.3 inches of wheel travel and 12.1 inches of ground clearance, five-way preload-adjustable shocks provide maximum tire contact and amazing comfort while navigating rough terrain.
  • Thick bucket seats and that great, long-travel suspension system work together to provide the smoothest ride in the industry.

New for 2006:

  • New, stamped steel dump bed is rated to haul 400 pounds of gear, with a new latch that opens from either side.
  • New Maxxis tires offer great traction, longer life and a comfortable ride.

Engine:

  • Patented five-valve cylinder head design (same as on the ultra-rugged Grizzly 660) delivers incomparable combination of potent low-rev torque and right-now throttle response.
  • Dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive with reverse, taps into more pulling power in low and more performance in high than any machine in its class.*
  • Console-mounted dual-range (H/L/N/R) shift lever.
  • Sealed drive case keeps out water and debris, and a hand-operated side cover drain lets out what little gets in.
  • Specially designed full stainless steel exhaust system features aluminum heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor for superb power characteristics with minimum noise output.
  • Large-capacity aluminum radiator and oil cooler with fan-assist delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
  • 42mm Mikuni CV carburetor and high-output DC-CDI ignition system ensure incredible throttle response and engine performance
  • Specially designed drive system air intake vent helps prevent overheating and keeps water and mud from entering the drive case.
  • Easy-access, tool-free air filter box.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Steel frame is lightweight and features outstanding durability with superior rigidity for superb handling.
  • Light, responsive rack and pinion steering features a fully sealed steering column and double u-joint steering linkage for smooth operation and class-leading turning radius—even in 4WD.
  • Large-diameter ventilated hydraulic front disc brakes and shaft-mounted hydraulic rear disc provide outstanding stopping power in a variety of conditions.
  • 12.1-inch ground clearance delivers maximum underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability.
  • Low-maintenance front shaft drive features gear case and electronic servo-activated 2WD/4WD/Diff-lock via the On-Command™ system. Direct rear shaft drive eliminates the U-joint for greater durability and more efficient power transfer at all RPM.
  • Heavy-duty front guard and CV joint guards protect against rock and debris damage.
  • Standard center-mounted, heavy-duty two-inch receiver-style hitch can tow over 1200 pounds.

  • Large, specially designed seats are extra plush and supportive for all-day driver and passenger comfort.
  • Operator and passenger safety belts.
  • Dual 30-watt multi-reflector Krypton bulb headlights with high/low beams feature stylishly sleek cat-eye design; dual 5-watt/21-watt tail/brake lights.

  • Maintenance-free battery provides power, even in cold weather.
