Gator Updates In Competitive UTV Market

The 2014 John Deere Gator XUV line highlights some upgrades, including standard Operaror Side Retention on all Gator's equipment with the company's Operator Protective Structure, heavier-duty winch, better digital display on some models.

JD XUVA net OSR is part of the base configuration for the HPX, XUV heavy-duty, and mid-duty models. Stylized poly doors can be ordered in lieu of nets for certain models. The nets allow for easy one-handed operation, provide  visibility and allow for accessible ingress and egress from the utility vehicle. The stylized poly doors feature automotive style handles, color-matched panels, and a 90 degree opening for easy entry and exit.

The Warn ProVantage 3,500 or 4500 lb. winch increases pulling capacity up to 1,500 additional pounds over previous models.
The heavy-duty line of XUVs (625i, 825i, 855D) features digital display and operator station updates. The new digital display now includes a glow plug indicator light (diesel), a flashing water temperature icon, and a power steering indicator (if equipped). New illuminated dash switches provide better nighttime visibility.

The highlight of the mid-duty line (550, 550 S4) is an improved braking system that delivers 26 percent reduction in brake pedal effort and improved operator feedback while maintaining braking performance.
