The 2012 Arctic Cat Prowler 550 XT is a recreational SxS, sporting all the nifty features required for a pleasant trip on pretty much any kind of surface.

Created to comply with the rigors of both paved and unpaved roads, this vehicle will also be great across sand dunes or wet forest trails: thanks to its generous ground clearance and top-drawer long-travel independent suspensions, the 2012 Arctic Cat Prowler 550 XT will easily tackle a lot of obstacles in the way.

An automatic dual-range transmission makes things easy, especially with switchable 2/4WDm engine braking and electric differential locking. A sturdy roll cage is standard for increased safety, while the rear cargo box allows a hefty 600 lbs (272 kg) loading capacity. With an underhood watertight storage, the 2012 Arctic Cat Prowler 550 XT is perfect for longer adventures off the road, too.
