Arctic Cat® has taken the Side by Side industry to new heights in quality and design. It didn’t happen by accident. Arctic Cat product designers are enthusiasts, adventure-seekers and hardworking folks just like you. So when it comes to researching what you want, we pretty much have it down.

500 H1 4-Stroke Engine w/EFI

Smooth, consistent acceleration comes courtesy of this potent 443cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled single-cylinder. Its wide torque curve and smooth power delivery are a benefit of electronic fuel injection, which tunes the engine for any temperature, elevation and humidity.

Fully-Independent Suspension

In the face of aggressive terrain, 10 inches of travel, combined with 10 inches of ground clearance lets you consume every obstacle in your workday.

Digital Gauge

The digital gauge features 14 critical operation information indicators: clock/hour meter, fuel level, mode button, set/reset button, odometer/trip, gear position, speedometer/tachometer, differential lock, high beam and temperature.

Duro Kaden Tires & Steel Wheels

It’s the perfect match. Steel wheels and Duro 3 Star Kaden tires. Go anywhere in rugged style. Tough wheels. Tough tires.

On-The-Fly 2/4 WD

Purists prefer to be in control of when to shift into 4WD. With the flip of a switch power is delivered to both the rear and front wheels via the open front differential. In 4WD steering remains light.

3-Passenger Seat

The Prowler® HDX™ is a working Side by Side. Sometimes the job calls for an extra hand. Which is why we added the three-person bench seat.

Transformable Tilting Rear Cargo Box

The HDX™ was voted the industry’s best heavy duty ROV. The 2-in-1 cargo box hauls up to 600 lbs. It’s wide enough to fit a wooden pallet and converts to a flatbed in minutes.

Front and Rear 2-Inch Receivers

You’re gonna be towing stuff. So naturally, we provide the receiver for your 2-inch hitch. And to make things even more interesting, you’ll find a second receiver up front. Now that’s clever. And useful.

Sleek Side Restraints

Nifty, huh? It’s all about ergonomics. Making sure you’re in there feeling good and comfortable.

Dashboard Shift Lever with Park

Ergonomics on these machines are quite excellent. Here’s another example. The shift lever is right there on the dash. We’ve added the Park gear for the sake of convenience. No need to set the parking brake. But we recommend you do anyway, especially when parking on steeper grades.


The technology that goes into Arctic Cat® Side by Sides has evolved through the years. We really want you to understand all the details that make your Arctic Cat perform the way it does. So, dive in and enjoy.
