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.

550 H1 4-Stroke Engine w/EFI

The potent 550 H1 engine is a 545cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder sporting electronic fuel injection. It’s another great engine, built right, right here in the good ol' USA.

Fully-Independent Suspension

To achieve maximum traction whether you’re crawling up the rockiest landscapes or whooping it up in the dunes, it’s all about keeping your wheels on the ground all the time. That’s why our independent suspensions have to be best in the business.

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, needle display, differential lock, high beam, temperature and oil pressure.

Duro Kaden Tires & Aluminum Wheels

The all purpose Duro 3 Star Kaden tire is a favorite among the offroad crowd. It’s a go anywhere, do everything tire that gives you great grip and a great ride. These handsome aluminum wheels deserve nothing less.

On-The-Fly 2/4 WD + Electric Front Differential Lock

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. When you need maximum traction flip the switch again to lock the front differential.

Dual Bucket Seats

We like our creature comforts. Plus we believe the more comfortable you are the more you’re going to enjoy the experience. These seats are designed to hold you firmly in place as you race, crawl and continue on over most anything that comes your way.

Tilting Rear Cargo Box

If you can haul it, you should be able to dump it. That’s why the Prowler® gets a 600-lb. capacity tilting rear cargo box.

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.

Underhood Storage

Underneath this Prowler® hood is a large
25-lb. capacity storage area. It’s a great place to keep those valuable high, dry and out of site.

Sleek Side Restraints

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

Automotive-Style Paint

Why do we give these machines such a nice paint job when all you’re gonna do is take it out and get it very dirty? The answer will hit you the second you hose off all that dirt. There’s nothing prettier.


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.
