Prowler 500 HDX
Arctic Cat Prowler 500 HDX /500 HDX XT / 500 HDX LTD

The all-new 2014 Arctic Cat Prowler 500 HDX and HDX Limited are built to deliver three-occupant adventure and versatility at a premium value.
Both new models are built upon the award-winning HDX design that combines space for three occupants matched by a versatile rear cargo box that’s built to haul a variety of payloads.
Large enough to hold items as large as a pallet, the transformable 2-in-1 composite cargo box design that tilts and can haul 600 lbs. payload. Multiple tie-down options ease securing loads. On the Limited model the box features detachable bed sides that quickly transform the HDX into a flatbed.
Each HDX model boasts the sculpted 40/20/40 “bench” seat that delivers comfortable seating
for three occupants. It’s part of a spacious cab system that includes
a ROPS round-tube canopy.
Power for the new machines comes from the H1 443cc 4-stroke engine with the spot-on calibration of Electronic Fuel Injection. It’s matched by the Duramatic Automatic transmission, which features High/Low/ Reverse/Park and dynamic engine breaking. All three models feature electronic 2WD/4WD selectable by a dash-mounted switch.
For added luxury, the HDX XT gets painted bodywork in Emerald Green Metallic or Vibrant
Red Metallic, 14-inch aluminum wheels, a 25-lb. capacity under hood storage space, plus left and
right side storage compartments.
The HDX Limited ups the ante with the addition of 5-position tilt steering, Variable Electronic
Power Steering, a locking front differential, 14-inch aluminum wheels, 25-lb. under hood storage
and painted bodywork in either Emerald Green Metallic or Vibrant Red Metallic.
