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 Cat® 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.

First toro and now Cat. I think you got to chalk this up as a win for Textron. I'm sure Polaris wanted that business. Do they still make the a UTV for Bobcat?

Now if you want your ProwlerHDX/Stampede in yellow your all set. Wonder if they will limit the speed to 25mph? I think the Bobcats, Mules are.

I read the whole story and the only interesting thing was a "steel" bed. That suggests it's not going to be just a re-badged prowler/stampede. I also wonder if the diesel will return since Cat is worldwide and running diesel in the big equipment.


so Cushman a Textron company makes the Hauler with a diesel and steel bed. Would look good in yellow.
