Prowler 1000H2 EFI XTZ

arctic cat utv rtv prowler 1000 The H2 revolution of hemi-producing power will soon open a new dimension in power to the ROV class. As you can imagine, the 1000 H2 EFI has a potently powerful 951cc, SOHC, V-twin, liquid-cooled engine, designed for a wide torque curve with the smoothest power via Electronic Fuel Injection. Cold weather starting and changes in elevation are no longer an issue.

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 XTZ 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.

Other amenities of the Prowler XTZ include a sport bumper and fascia, all-new cast aluminum 14” wheels with black painted inlays with 26x9R14 Goodyear MTR front tires and 26x11R14 Goodyear MTRs in the rear for the ultimate in offroad traction. Arctic Cat accessories come standard in the form of nerf bars, box rails, rear view mirror, hood scoop and Pro Grip steering wheel. All this packaged in Sunset Orange Metallic automotive paint that can be buffed and waxed.
