The Gator™ XUV Crossover Series Utility Vehicle has a precision-engineered drivetrain system that fully utilizes engine power, optimizing acceleration, hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities. Power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to the transaxle.
Key elements of the drive system include:
The variable-speed drive consists of two clutches and a drive belt:
How the variable-speed drive works:
Operator interface features:
NOTE: Differential design reduces scuffing of the turf during turns because it allows the inside wheels to turn slower than the outside wheels.
Drive shaft features:
Whether it is a completely open operator station or a factory-installed cab, the interior has been redesigned with comfort and ergonomics in mind.
Automotive-style controls on the center of the dash are easy and convenient to reach for the operator or passengers
The machine is powered by an 812-cm3 (49.6-cu in.), 3-cylinder, dual overhead cams, liquid-cooled, four-cycle gasoline engine. It produces 6.5 kgm (47 lb-ft) of torque at 3200 rpm. The advanced electronic controls and fuel-injection system deliver superb starting, idling, and throttle response during operation.
The engine offers the following performance and reliability features:
*The engine horsepower information is provided by the engine manufacturer to be used for comparison purposes only. The actual operating horsepower will be less.
To complement the robust frame, the XUV is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension.
A dual A-arm front and rear suspension provides a smooth ride over challenging terrain and excellent hauling characteristics.
The entire suspension system has been optimized to handle no cargo to maximum cargo without compromising ride quality or vehicle stability.
M-trim units with factory-installed cabs and R-trim units have heavy-duty front and rear shocks installed from the factory.
Dual A-arm independent rear suspension features include:
The deluxe cargo box consists of a 15 percent glass-filled polypropylene composite material that eliminates rust and dents and reduces noise.
The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. The tailgate has been improved, features truck-like performance, and can be operated with one hand.
The standard-installed lanyards can also be removed to lower the tailgate to 150 degrees for convenient loading and unloading tasks.
The deluxe cargo box is easier to latch, unlatch, raise, and lower with the integrated handle design and gas assist.
A prop rod is provided to hold the box in the upright position for operator convenience, as well as limit box pivot travel.
The deluxe cargo box offers integrated tie-down points for increased versatility. Tie-down points are located in the following areas:
Optional accessories for the deluxe cargo box:
|Length||1143 mm (45 in.)|
|Width||1320 mm (52 in.)|
|Depth||305 mm (12 in.)|
|Volume||0.46 m3 (16.4 cu ft)|
|Weight capacity||454 kg (1000 lb)|
|Dump angle||47 degrees|
CAUTION: Carrying extra-long cargo that extends beyond the box can adversely affect stability.
On M- and R-trim vehicles, adding attachments and accessories is made easier by the inclusion of some main wiring harnesses that facilitate efficient hook-up.

This Gator™ XUV Crossover Utility Vehicle is equipped with power steering and a dual A-arm front suspension. These automotive-type systems exhibit excellent handling characteristics, as well as responsive steering and low steering effort:
Electric power-assist steering (EPAS) system has advanced features:
With the EPAS system, the operator maintains a direct, mechanical linkage from the steering wheel to the front wheels. The power-steering system interfaces mechanically with the steering system by being inserted between the steering wheel and the rack-and-pinion assembly.
A differential torque sensor is integrated into the power steering assembly. The circuit board assembly is also integral with the power-steering assembly.
Power steering does not reduce turning radius but significantly reduces steering effort by approximately 85 percent compared to those models without power steering.
The numbered descriptions refer to the EPAS interface diagram shown above:
