The Gator XUV 590i and 590i S4 four-passenger utility vehicles are equipped with twin-cylinder 32hp, 586cc petrol engines, capable of propelling the machines to a top speed of 45mph.

 

Both models are equipped as standard with independent four-wheel suspension, power steering and an 875W/65A alternator to run auxiliary attachments such as lights, winches and sprayers without the risk of discharging the battery, says Deere.

 

Ground clearance is a minimum of 267mm (10.5in) on the 590i, which has a load capacity of 363kg and a towing capacity of 499kg. S4 versions have a ground clearance of 236mm (9.3in), a load capacity of 544kg with the rear passenger seat folded down, and are also capable of towing up to 499kg.

 

Lower noise and vibration levels have been achieved by isolating the powertrain and utilising sound-dampening material around the engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT) intakes, says the manufacturer.

 

In addition to the two XUV 590i Gators, a new mid-size XUV 560 offers similar spec levels to the 590i but with a smaller engine. Power comes from a 16hp, 570cc V-twin petrol engine providing a top speed of 28mph.

 

This model also offers sealed under hood storage and features a one-piece cargo box made of a composite material said to eliminate rust and dents, and reduce noise. Its tailgate can be removed for easier cleaning of the cargo area and to carry longer items.
