Newbie question

New to the forum and to SxS's. Looking to buy a 2011, 2012 or 2013 Prowler 700. Are there any differences in the models? Other than price and year??! I don't see any from what I can tell. If so, comments about the better model year would be very appreciated. I enjoy learning from those threads I've read already and look forward more so to your response to this question. I'll have more once I get some feedback, I'm sure. Thx all.

Rollcage differs

Thanks de3 you broke the silence. Just FYI- while searching and cross-referencing the parts lists on AC page the roll cage differs but if that's all then I'm in good shape.

The 2011 and the 2013 has different part numbers on the frame also.it looks like the 2011 has the round cage,I know the 2010 had the square cage.If you buy one the newer the better.

If you go to the arctic cat website and do some searching you can go back to 2012 and look at different models.

Some things I noticed. There is a regular 700 & 700hdx with the longer wheel base. The HDX comes with many upgrades including power steering, fox coil overs in the back, dash mounted shifting lever. There is a lot of flipping back and fourth that's for sure when your searching.

I also notice there is no 700hdx for the 2014 yr, looks like that got switch to 500's which is kinda disappointing for me, if I was going to get another 700 it was going to be HDX.

never mind still have the 700hdx..i guess I can still spend the 14K

They introduced a 500hdx which is interesting...guess I need to get out more or pay a little more attention
