AUGUSTA, GA — Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, continues to expand its off-road vehicle lineup with the introduction of the all-new, pure-utility Textron Off Road Prowler Pro side-by-side. Built in Thief River Falls, Minn., the Prowler Pro offers quiet gas power and the performance and reliability needed to tackle the toughest jobs and handle the most extreme hunts.
“We focused on the driver experience when developing the new Prowler Pro,” said John Collins, Vice President, Consumer for Textron Specialized Vehicles. ”The Prowler Pro is a formidable work partner for any farm, ranch, work site or hunting excursion.”
Whether it’s traversing farm fields, tending to livestock or pacing the thrill of the hunt, farmers and hunters appreciate a quiet vehicle. At the heart of the Prowler Pro is a 50-horsepower, whisper-quiet, 812cc EFI engine offering all the muscle needed to be a reliable work partner or haul big game. To complement the strong, silent engine, vibration-reducing engine mounts and bushings knock out vibration and buzzing so the vehicle offers quiet power and performance. Prowler Pro also features a tuned exhaust utilizing a rubber isolator with the muffler to lessen exhaust noise.
Prowler Pro not only offers a quiet ride experience, but all the comfort needed for tough tasks and long days. For a comfortable ride, the vehicle has 10 inches of front and 9.5 inches of rear suspension travel, with 10.75 inches of ground clearance and 26-inch Pro Terrain tires to tackle rutted farm fields or the toughest hunting trail. Its 2,000-pound towing capacity, 1,500-pound payload and 1,000-pound cargo box capacity allow implements and game to be towed or hauled with ease. For in-cab comfort, the vehicle features a three-person bench seat perfect for work applications, and tilt steering with a column shifter for easy and comfortable operation. Its customizable speed control allows the operator to set a maximum speed, which is perfect for ensuring ranch and farm hands are utilizing appropriate speed on the job.
Whether hunting or farming, storage is essential, and Prowler Pro offers 17.95 cubic-feet of overall storage capacity. The vehicle also has a cargo box with 14.72 cubic-feet to haul plenty of gear or game. Its modular in-cab design allows for the removal of the passenger seats – which can be easily stored behind the driver's seat – to free up floor space for oversized items. The behind-the-seat storage also offers additional space for quickly needed gear, while smaller items such as gloves, tools and safety goggles can be stored in the spacious glove box.
Reliability and serviceability are essential in the field or on the hunt, and Prowler Pro was developed to be a durable and easy-to-maintain work partner. Textron Specialized Vehicles aggressively tested Prowler Pro for more than 1,000 hours to put the vehicle through its paces. The result is a tried-and-true, work side-by-side durable enough to withstand the harshest tasks and conditions. For ease-of-maintenance, the Prowler Pro has toolless service components with easy-access panels, so the vehicle can spend more time in the field or at hunt camp.
For maximum versatility, the Prowler Pro can be equipped with more than 50 custom-built, easily installed accessories including a truck-inspired cab, a heater kit, body protection, plows, gun scabbards and lighting. Accessory packages include “Geared-Up,” “Expedition” and “Decked-Out” which offer different roof, windshield, protection, lighting, and in-cab accessory options.
The Prowler Pro is available in one base model color, Marsh Green, for $11,399, ($14,199 Canadian.) Dynamic Charcoal and Fire Red XT models include electronic power steering and 26-inch Pro Terrain tires on machined aluminum wheels for $12,999 (CA$16,199.) All vehicles are sold with a 12-month warranty and are available in dealerships now.
