2014 Sport Side-by-Side Overview
So right in so many ways. That’s how the industry is describing Arctic Cat’s sandrail-inspired Wildcat. The sport Side by Side that ascends the steepest sand dunes one day, flexes its articulation across rocky landscapes the next, and blasts up and down uncharted logging roads whenever the urge arises. In all categories — suspension, handling and power — the Wildcat beats the competition’s versions hands down, time and time again.
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.
1000 H2 V-Twin 4-Stroke Engine w/EFI
The engine features a Pentroof combustion chamber benefiting from 4 valves per cylinder and electronic fuel injection. It’s a combination that provides, among other benefits, more complete combustion. This translates to more power, more efficiency and cleaner exhaust. What you get is a 951cc power mill that’s more efficient, more reliable and more potent than anything out there.
5-Link Rear Suspension
The 5-link rear suspension boasts a full 18-inches of travel. No other machine in this category goes to this extreme to keep your wheels firmly planted on the ground.
Sometimes you need an upgrade. The 1000 Limited models come standard with front and rear aluminum painted bumpers, color-matched seats and custom graphics.
FOX Podium Shocks
FOX® Podium shocks with 23-position compression adjustment is something we added to give you even more control in all kinds of terrain. Dial in your desired firmness, up or down, and go.
Race-Inspired Bucket Seats
What makes these seats race-inspired bucket seats? It’s simple. The guys and gals who put these Side by Sides through their paces actually designed these seats. Granted every body is different, we’ve got a design here that works exceptionally well across the spectrum.
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.
Electronic Power Steering
This model features variable assist electronic power steering (EPS). Arctic Cat® EPS activates automatically at the moment of ignition. Thanks to this advanced technology, steering your machine requires minimal effort even at rock crawling slow speeds.
Wildcat™ X and Limited models come with painted aluminum bumpers. These bumpers make your Wildcat even wilder looking. If you happen to bump into something, no problem, these are tough bumpers.
13 Inches of Ground Clearance
Wildcat™ boasts 13 inches of ground clearance. When you take 17 inches of front suspension travel and 18 inches of rear suspension travel into consideration, articulation is incredible.
18 Inches of Rear Suspension Travel
The terrain says, “impassable.” The suspension says, “bring it on.” The Wildcat’s independent suspension features our unique 5-link rear suspension. There’s also a sway bar back there to keep body roll to a minimum.
Hang on for the ride of your life. Yeah, there’s a handhold. And it’s right where you want it to be.
300-lb. Capacity Rear Cargo Box
The Wildcat™ will take you places far and wide. Often you’ll need to bring supplies. The rear cargo box carries up to 300-lbs. So don’t hesitate to load it up for the long haul.
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.
