I'm just wondering if anyone has one or bought a new 2015 Prowler,I would love to hear some feed back on the new prowler.......so far its been a secret,my 2 local A/C dealers has not received any yet,but I have a dealer thats 2 hours away that has a XT 1000,and I noticed some dealers in different states has some also.....I talked to a guy yesterday that owns a dealership out west somewhere,and he said it's Quieter than the 2014 model by 8db,the Ecu has been re-mapped and it gets 25% better fuel economy.......I'm on several ATV and UTV Face Book sites and not a word has been mentioned about the new Prowler........I think A/C needs to advertise more on sport utility side than they do.......all they talk about is there sport models.............

the 2016 arctic cat sleds just came out. they now put the 700 motor out of the Wild cat trail in a sled. Looks like there getting away from Suzuki motors and opting for Yamaha and Kymco motors and there own. Maybe writing on the wall for what they use in there ATV's. Will see what they come up with.

thanks for the heads up. 3"inch paddle from the factory...Yeehaaw

That 700 motor is 135hp...would be a wild ride in the wildcat if that was the case.

4-stroke motors come from Yamaha and any of the c-tec 2 strokes are made in house.

I think 2013ish was the last yr for the Suzuki's

That 700 motor is 65 hp.
I believe the 1056cc turbo charged twin cyl motor is still a suzuki.

Decent video of the sled engines

I think my first 500cc cat in 98 was 90hp. all the motors where Suzuki, really good motors. I weighed about 110 lbs wet back then, was perfect for me when is 16.

2015 prowler xt

A dealer outside of Pueblo has two, one orange and one black. Both look good but the graphics pop out better in the orange. I am 6'6" tall and weigh 280. This model fits me better than any that i have sat in. My knowledge on utv's is limited but i like this one. To give you more room the should bar is bolted on and can be removed. I am thinking that the seat can be moved back an inch or so by drilling 4 new holes.

My county is expected to legalize ohvs on county roads. The second the commissioners sign on the dotted line I will buy this one to use as my go to town vehicle.

finally got it

I picked up my AC Prowler XT this week and have already done 90 miles. All it took to give me another inch of leg room was to drill 4 new holes in the seat bracket and move the seat back. Is it enough no but its the best i can do.

I really need a windshield but AC or Kolpin doesnt make the 2 piece tilt out yet, which is what i want.

My big a-- feet keep slipping off of the accelerator. Is there a larger accelerator?

It is really eye catching. I would post a picture but the weather hear sucks right now. I will be driving it in a parade saturday so perhaps i will take some then.
