Based on the snowmagedon promotion from cat for 2020, it suggests the ONLY way to buy a 2020 arctic cat sled is through spring order.
Didn't see this mentioned on the site so thought I'd share and discuss!

That's in the cat brand forum... Still surprised nobody's talking about it here. Guess nobody really cares!

I did pick up an in season xf8000 for 11500 + tax in Feb 2014. MSRP was around 14500 + freight/pdi + tax. Sold it with 600miles the next fall for 12k cash. Was a POS that never ran right and dealer couldn't figure it out, then went tits up.

It's not that big of a deal. Dealers will still order in more if they want, as they'll know what sells in their area. Just like the 2019 Alpha which was 'spring order ONLY' yet there were several dealers with extra stock to sell to whoever in the fall/winter.

Textron has really changed things up this year. I was told by my dealer that once a sled is delivered they have 30 days to pay for it! Unless something changes I donít think many sleds will be sitting in showroom floors. Was also told financing is crazy high. Pricing on snow checks looks great but if your financing you better shop around for a loan.
