Caterpillar announces plans to enter the utility vehicle market. The company has entered into a manufacturing and supply agreement with Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. and will offer UTV models sold through participating CatŪ dealerships starting in 2018.
“We are excited about our introduction of the first-ever Cat UTV models. We look forward to offering a vehicle specifically designed to serve the needs of our existing as well as new customers,” says Steve Schoening, product manager. “Cat utility vehicles will offer exceptional performance and stability at full load, superior reliability, and a quiet, spacious operator environment.”
The new Cat UTV models were developed in collaboration with Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc., a division of Textron Inc. Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. (TSV) manufactures utility vehicles and equipment to serve numerous industries, marketed under a number of brands. TSV product lines include Cushman utility vehicles, Textron Off Road side-by-sides and ATVs, Arctic Cat snowmobiles, Jacobsen professional turf equipment and E-Z-GO golf cars.
Featuring a rugged steel cargo bed, the new UTVs from Caterpillar reliably handle up to 1,000 lb (450 kg) of material and tools, and they offer 2,000-lb (900-kg) towing capacity. The UTVs also provide ample headroom and legroom for tall riders.
“Cat UTVs offer easy-to-access service points for maintenance, and customers can rely on the unmatched service and support offered by participating Cat dealers to keep their UTVs working at peak performance,” adds Schoening.

This has been in the works for a long time, I heard about it a couple years ago

More work for the guys in TRF is a good thing

Regardless of liking Textron, AC, Cat positive to see something made here and not far east or far south.

AC builds sleds only. Change title.

Last Cat D8T at work has had lots of issues.

Getting Textron to build them a utv seems about right.

I wonder if these will be built in TRF or in Georgia or wherever the Stampedes were built before moving them to TRF.

Sounds like TRF. Not 100% official though.

AFIK it was developed and built in TRF.

Deal has been done for a couple years now

Pretty sure I drove a test mule at the dealer meeting, but didn't have any body work, and they tried to hide the cool parts.
