“Whether it’s tackling a variety of professional work-related needs, taking on extreme, challenging terrain or transporting VIPs, the new Volunteer VTX concept utility vehicle represents the epitome of both form and function, bringing high style to high performance and high capability applications,” said Jeff Salamon, director of marketing. “The essence of the new VTX concept utility vehicle is a combination of powerful utility with incredible transformability – allowing users unprecedented UTV functionality. Pushing the boundaries of the UTV as we know it, the cross-over design of the VTX opens the market to a new class of transformable Utility Vehicles.”
To establish a future vision of UTVs and create the Volunteer VTX concept, Cub Cadet partnered with power sports industry leader, Cycra. The Volunteer VTX creates a new class of transformable Utility Vehicles that set higher expectations of what a UTV can provide. The concept easily transforms – even in remote locations – for multiple high-demand, high-profile and challenging applications.
To manage difficult municipal tasks, tackle challenging event-related jobs, move cargo and/or people, the VTX concept offers many of the rugged features found across the proven Volunteer platform with several enhancements in form and function. For those jobs that require additional power, the VTX cross-over includes 12-volt power outlets, hook-ups for air-powered tools and multi-functional high-intensity lighting.
For those looking to explore more challenging terrain, the VTX also offers a wide range of upgrades including a new engine and drive-train. Under the hood is a powerful, parallel-twin Webber engine with twice the horsepower found on the current Volunteer EFI allowing it to reach speeds of 45 mph plus. In keeping with the versatility theme, maximum speed can be easily controlled as necessary by using special speed keys.
Directly in line with its progressive design and styling are a full range of innovative features guaranteed to make a day’s tasks and journey as enjoyable as the destination. Features include unique, foldable jump seats that provide the flexibility to carry up to five riders or create more space behind the front seats for cargo or as a work area. The bed sides fold down to transform the VTX into a mobile work station complete with tool hookups. The fully digitized dashboard displays a digital instrumentation pod above the steering wheel, including in-dash GPS and radio capabilities. For those adventures that demand even more than four-wheel drive, the VTX comes with a front, rear and portable winch.
The all-new VTX concept vehicle offers users:
Versatility to do More:
Whether it’s moving people, valuable equipment or
cargo, the VTX quickly and easily converts from the
ultimate transporter to the ultimate mobile work
station. Features include rear jump-seats that can
accommodate more people or be folded down and out of
the way to reveal a sizable flat surface with an
innovative versatile track system. This highly
adaptable area can be used simply as additional
storage space or, thanks to the track system, used
for a variety of purposes ranging from a slide-out
work support area to a secure storage case system
and even to carrying a stretcher. The possibilities
are nearly unlimited. In addition to the jump seat
area, the rear bed sides of the VTX fold flat to
create a large remote work shop. On-board 110V
electric outlets and retractable air hose allow the
use of power tools and more.
A Comfortable Ride: Thanks
to a custom contoured bench seat and adjustable
suspension, the VTX holds riders in place and gives
users a smooth, stable, and comfortable ride on both
civilized and uncivilized terrain.
More Power: Relying on an
850cc Webber engine and electronic on-dash shifting,
users will have more power at their fingertips than
any other Volunteer utility vehicle with the ability
to comfortably reach speeds of 45+ mph.
Speed Key Technology: For
specific applications users can choose between two
separate speed keys that set top speeds. For work
around schools, municipalities, job-sites and
residential communities, the lower speed key
restricts speed to 25 mph. The high speed option key
allows for 45+ mph — perfect for longer excursions.
High-Profile Styling: The
design of the new VTX concept combines assertive
styling with purposeful design for an unequaled
combination of high-profile appearance, unmatched
versatility and rugged durability. The VTX is a
utility vehicle that brings high style to high
- Fully-Digital Interface: A dynamic digital display conveniently located on the steering column allows users to easily access vital information. An in-dash monitor with GPS and rear-facing camera view gives riders a true global view. The accessibility to information provided by the VTX is unlike any other UTV on the market.
