The first thing that catches the eye is the desert sand paint featured on the exterior panels and accompanied by military-inspired graphics and model numbers.
The thing rides on black alloy wheels with Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 Extreme Terrain radial tires (Predator Heavy Duty all-terrain radial tires can be fitted as well), and a black vinyl split-bench seat is fitted inside. A black roof, brush guard, and a cargo box with power lift complete the modifications.
No changes have been made to the mechanical bits. The Honor Edition uses the stock 812cc engine good for 54 hp and potent enough to give the thing a 907 kg (2,000 lb) towing capacity. It can also carry three people, or 454 kg (1,000 lb) of cargo.
The John Deere Gator Honor Edition is available in both open-station configuration and in a cab configuration with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). Prices for the former kick off at $18,899, while the latter will sell starting from $25,999.
John Deere says this special version of the Gator will only be available for a limited time, but doesn’t say exactly what that means. Pre-orders for the models are open, but no delivery time is mentioned.
