What is the Best UTV for the Job?
on Tuesday, November 2, 2021
Whether work needs to get done around the farm or you are looking to ride the trails, accept no substitute for a John Deere Gator™ Utility Vehicle. Designed for power, performance and comfort, our selection of side-by-side UTVs is second to none. The only question is which traditional, recreational or crossover utility vehicle is right for your needs.
Best UTV for the Farm
When you have to work outdoors but Mother Nature has decided not to cooperate, step inside the John Deere Gator XUV835M with HVAC. The enclosed cab, which can seat up to three people, comes equipped with a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system that allows you to perform work comfortably no matter the weather conditions. The XUB835M also boasts improved power steering for smoother operation, in addition to a three-cylinder engine with 54 horsepower, 2,000 lbs of towing capacity, and 1,000 lbs of cargo box capacity.
Best UTV for Trail Riding
When you’re ready to spend an afternoon out on the trails, buckle up and take the John Deere Gator XUV590E for a spin. The fastest mid-size XUV that John Deere has manufactured, the XUV590E can reach a top speed of more than 48 mph, backed by a 32 horsepower engine. It also comes equipped with a new electronic switch for instant engagement of the four-wheel-drive system. The four-wheel independent suspension was engineered in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1®, NASCAR®, and INDYCAR® teams to ensure that the XUV590E provides a smooth ride over challenging terrain.
Best UTV for Hunting
The John Deere Gator XUV590i packs plenty of power in a compact package. One of the attributes that makes it most appealing to hunters is the smooth ride and handling from the power steering. It has little trouble maneuvering through trees and around obstacles and, most importantly for hunting, engine noise has been reduced. The XUV590i also comes equipped with a four-wheel-drive system and an adjustable suspension. The subtle touches, from the 20 tie-down points to sealed under-hood storage, help separate it from the competition.
Best UTV for the Money
If you’re less interested in bells and whistles and have simple needs for your UTV, the John Deere Gator XUV560E may be exactly what you’re looking for. With a cargo box capacity of 500 lbs and a 16 horsepower engine, the XUV560E isn’t the most powerful machine on the market, but it is a capable off-road vehicle. The four-wheel independent suspension will help keep you moving through less than ideal terrain, and it can be attached to a small trailer.
