2011 Arctic Cat Prowler 1000 XTZ: Big-Bore Performance at its Finest

Nobody can talk enough about the big-bore performance of the Prowler XTZ. The Baja race-winning XTZ returns for 2011with an all-new race-inspired round tube canopy, Electronic Power Steering (EPS), new steering wheel, digital gauge and heavy-duty 14-in. aluminum wheels.

Electronic Power Steering – new to the Prowler XTZ for 2011 – enhance the 1000’s industry-leading handling. Arctic Cat’s Variable Assist EPS allows steering assistance to the XTZ before it even starts to move at idle. This is a huge benefit to conserving the rider’s input energy when in 4WD, especially when the differential lock is engaged. Arctic Cat EPS reduces the torque necessary to steer the XTZ when changing direction with a loaded cargo box or navigating tough obstacles like rocks, deep mud or logs.

Combining one of the industry’s largest engines with sport-inspired suspension geometry, the performance minded Prowler XTZ provides the ultimate in untouchable recreation.

Arctic Cat engines have power where it matters: the ground. Arctic Cat H2 engines have more pulling power,more climbing power and more acceleration. The powerhouse 1000 V-Twin H2 has a 951cc, 4-stroke monster performance mill. The Duramatic automatic transmission has dynamic engine braking with Low, High, Neutral and Reverse.

The stance and suspension were race-bred and performance-calibrated with additional ride-in. What is ride-in? The Prowler XTZ will squat roughly 2 inches (depending on driver/passenger sizes) while providing 10 inches of ground clearance and 10 inches of suspension travel. The lower ride height and center of gravity inspire riding confidence in aggressive cornering and high speed handling. The XTZ boasts high performance suspension geometry with the best gas-charged monotube shocks on the market.
