Here's some info on the new gators coming out in the next several months:

New Gator™ XUV Crossover Utility Vehicles

So no one gets left behind, John Deere introduces the all-new 2012 Mid-Duty XUV 550s, featuring our lowest-priced four-wheel drive and the first-ever four-passenger Gators. The new John Deere Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 crossover utility vehicles offer the off-road performance customers would expect in an XUV, along with greater comfort, unique versatility, and the ability to transport up to four people across the most challenging landscapes.

These new vehicles provide an unparalleled balance of off-road performance and work capability at a very affordable price. The new John Deere Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 are a great complement to John Deere’s popular lineup of XUVs and offer the most comfortable way to get your customers, their crew, and all their supplies to those hard-to-reach destinations.

With a best-in-class, fully independent, double-wishbone suspension, the Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 provide up to 9 in. of wheel travel and up to 10.5 in. of ground clearance to smooth out the ride. In addition, for the 550, choose from either standard high-back bucket seats or plush bench seats. The 550 S4 comes standard with two rows of bench seats.

Operators will not only appreciate the smooth ride, they will love the all-new ergonomically designed operator station. The development of these new Gators started in the operator’s station, so they offer ample leg room, storage, and dash-mounted, automotive-type controls.

The Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 deliver mid-duty level capability with speed and ease. Being smaller, overall, compared to the heavy-duty XUVs, the 550 model easily fits in the bed of a standard pickup while both vehicles can carry up to 400 lb of gear in the cargo box. Both models also have a top speed of 28 mph and four-wheel drive to quickly traverse all types of terrain. And with a 16-hp, 570-cc, air-cooled, V-twin gas engine, these units have greater speed and horsepower than most vehicles in their class.

For a larger crew and cargo flexibility, the 550 S4 provides rear seat flexibility. Two additional passengers can be transported in the rear seat, or if more cargo capacity is needed, the rear seat flips down in seconds to become a cargo rack.

The rear seat flexibility in the Gator XUV 550 S4 is truly innovative. The S4 can transport up to four people, but sometimes the customer will not need to transport that many people. In seconds, the rear seat can become useful, increasing cargo space up to 32 percent.

I wonder if the XUV 550 and XUV 550 S4 are coming out in the Olive and Black colour option, as well as the Camouflage and Green and Yellow, like the 625i, 825i and 855D models? When trail riding in the forest the Olive and Black colour blends in well with the surroundings, the Camouflage does too, but I think Green and Yellow best represents using the Gator as mainly a working Gator over any recreation, hence all the Traditional Series are Green and Yellow!

I wonder why they wouldn't put a higher hp engine on the 2 seater.

RSX, SXS...Not Sure the Name of the Sport Model

I just heard about this new XUV, always thought the XUV 825, although attractive was very bulky and expensive. I am waiting with anticipation to see these XUVs in person...this might be perfect for me. But, it does leave me wondering about the price.:rolleyes:

Gator XUV 550 S4

I've had my Gator XUV 550 S4 for 4 months and love it. It was little pricie at $11,480.00. I live on Padre Island and love driving it on the beach. No problem in the worst sand. The 4 wheel low and high range with locking differential is wonderful for deep sand but for the most part the 2w drive goes through just about anything I run into. The Bighorn tires are great in the sand.
