2012 Arctic Cat Wildcat ROV Launched

The latest product coming from North American manufacturer of snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles Arctic Cat is the all-new Wildcat race-inspired, side-by-side hot rod. Coming as a pure-sport recreational off-road vehicle (ROV) the new Wildcat is powered by a 1000i H.O. engine with EFI, derived from the one fitted on the Prowler XTZ, but tuned for stronger acceleration and horsepower.

In addition, the Wildcat’s long-suspension rivals those used on off-road race buggies. Usually found only in off-road race trucks, the chassis is constructed from high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel with a full-perimeter exoskeleton design that’s a first in the pure-sport ROV class. The all-new Duro Kaden 14-inch tires also were developed specifically for the Wildcat.

Yet another first-in-class technology in the pure-sport category is the addition of Arctic Cat’s variable assist electronic power steering (EPS) on the Wildcat. The EPS system measures steering input force, tire resistance and vehicle speed, and then provides the appropriate assist to the steering column through an electric motor.

Inside features have been specifically developed to offer comfort, control and visibility, comprising contoured, high-back bucket seats, an adjustable tilt-steering wheel, and digital and analog gauges. Getting in and out of the Wildcat is made via a tube-frame door with integrated nets.

Fitted with or choices: Black Metallic or Arctic Green Metallic. Its class-leading LED headlights and taillights, the all-new Wildcat is available in two automotive-style paint color choices: Black Metallic or Arctic Green Metallic.
