What is a side-by-side UTV?

A side-by-side is an off-road vehicle designed for various tasks and recreational activities. Unlike traditional ATVs, side-by-side UTVs (Utility Terrain Vehicles) offer seating for multiple passengers and a small cargo bed.

Side-by-side UTVs can range from small, mid-size options up to full-size. UTVs are designed to handle off-road situations like mud, rough terrain, sand, or dirt. Side-by-side UTVs offer a comfortable and safe riding experience while providing storage space and towing capacity to assist in various tasks and activities.



What types of side-by-side UTVs does John Deere offer?

John Deere offers a wide range of side-by-side UTVs, each designed for specific applications and user requirements.


Traditional UTVs

The John Deere traditional UTVs are known for their ruggedness and durability. Designed to withstand demanding work, these traditional UTV models are suitable for agriculture, construction, and other similar tasks. A powerful engine and robust suspension system allow traditional UTV models to easily handle rough terrains. Examples of traditional Gator models are TH 6x4 diesel or gas.


Work Series UTVs

When it comes to heavy-duty tasks, the John Deere line of work series UTVs is built to withstand tough work environments while providing superior hauling and towing capabilities. With their study construction, advanced features, and choice between gas or diesel and 2WD or 4WD, the work series Gators are perfect for farmers, ranchers, and construction workers who require durable and reliable equipment. Some of the Gator models in the work series include the HPX615E and the HPX815E.


Mid-Size UTVs

The John Deere mid-size UTV lineup offers a balance between power and agility. Mid-size Gator models are designed to navigate narrow trails, perform various tasks around the property, or cross hilly terrains. Their combination of maneuverability, comfort, and versatility make the mid-size Gators popular for homeowners, recreational users, and outdoor enthusiasts.

The two-passenger models offer a 900-lb payload capacity with a 1,500-lb towing capacity. If you need more space and payload capacity, the 4-passenger models offer a 1,300-lb payload capacity and can fit four passengers or additional cargo space by flipping down the rear seat. The John Deere XUV560E and XUV590E models are examples of mid-side UTVs.


Full-Size UTVs

If you are after maximum power and performance, the John Deere full-size UTV lineup delivers both. With exceptional off-road capabilities, you can easily cover the most difficult terrains. These models offer ample storage, comfortable seating, advanced technology, and various customizable options. Three-passenger models offer an optional sealed cab with heat and A/C to make your Gator comfortable in any weather. Some of the Gator models within the John Deere Full-Size UTV lineup include the XUV835E, XUV835R, XUV855M S4, and XUV865R Diesel.



Electric UTVs
