Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 16 or 18 HP?
I own a 2016 XUV 550 Gator. All literature I have read indicates it is powered by a 570 cc 16 horsepower Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine.
However, when I look this engine up online to learn more about it, everything I’ve seen indicates it is actually 18 horsepower.
I’m just curious as to why this 2 hp discrepancy exists. I also wonder why John Deere would market this machine as a 550 and not a 570 like it actually is? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
