2017 Textron Stampede vs Arctic Cat HDX 700: By the Numbers

Two competing Utility UTVs that are suddenly siblings

The off-road community was a little shocked when we all learned that Textron purchased Arctic Cat. We all had the same questions floating through our minds – what was going to happen to the Arctic Cat brand and line up? We got most of those questions answered recently and now know that the Arctic Cat UTVs will transition into the Textron Off Road stable with the next model year, but most will stick around. Now that we know the plan, the next questions are, where does the Textron Stampede fit in the lineup, and how does it compare to what Arctic Cat offers now? That’s where we come in. Let’s take a look at the Textron Stampede and the Arctic Cat HDX 700 by the numbers.

Check out the head to head comparison here: 2017 Textron Stampede vs Arctic Cat HDX 700: By the Numbers

You cant compare the two. The HDX carries 3 passengers, with seat belts, while the Stampede does not.

Hard to say no to all that hp, but there is no free lunch. For a work horse, I could live with less hp, more mpg. If you were talking Wildcat, ok, more is better. Gong to take me a while to get used to the new Alterra front end. Looks like a strong line up.

I like the Stampede engine and the ability to unlock the rear diff. The prowler looks better, hauls more people and cargo.

The next generation of these vehicles, combining the best features should be very competitive in the SxS market.
