850 SERIES ENGINES
Legendary. Respected. Proven. This dependable 4-stroke big block V-Twin engine is built to never let you down. With 33HP and torque for days, the 850 fan-cooled engine has what it takes to get you over the hills, through the woods and across the water.
INSTANT TORQUE CLUTCH (ITC)
The new ARGO Instant Torque Drive System (ITDS) dramatically improves low-end torque and increases acceleration. The new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) is designed to provide the optimal gear ratio shifting seamlessly throughout the full range to utilize the massive torque and power of our engines.
Coupling the new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) with our Admiral or Classic transmission will increase the torque by 28% compared to our previous clutches with a High Torque (HT) transmission and will increase acceleration by 25% compared to our previous clutches with a Standard Torque (ST) transmission, providing you with increased torque and acceleration into one package.
ADMIRAL TRANSMISSION WITH APS
The Admiral transmission with ARGO Progressive Steering (APS) is an innovation in braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system, we have achieved a progressive dual-rate steering system.
This development, combined with the Admiral transmission, is a technological milestone that gives the ultimate driver experience. Steering events are effortless and confidence-inspiring, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. An ARGO is as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
ARGO PROGRESSIVE STEERING (APS)
APS is an innovation in the area of braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system we achieved a progressive, dual-rate steering system. Steering events are now effortless with an increase of 4X wider range of steering motion, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. APS makes it as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
REDUCED UNDERHOOD TEMPERATURE
To ensure comfort for the operator and passengers, heat-reflective and absorptive material is integrated into the firewall. A composite exhaust shroud goes one step further and effectively redirects heat while producing a subtle note from the exhaust.
AIRLOCK RIMS & TIRES
The ARGO signature AirLock™ steel and aluminum rims allow operators to adjust tire pressure to the terrain. The AirLock feature keeps the tire firmly fixed to the rim in rugged terrain while providing a 30% smoother ride.
ARGO low-pressure tires are custom engineered to provide propulsion for the vehicle when used amphibiously or to provide superior traction when off-roading in challenging terrain.
Yes, this XTV floats. The one-piece amphibious lower body is the signature ARGO design feature. Its smooth, durable underbody floats over potential snags, stumps and outcrops, as well as swamps and water.
ROLL-OVER PROTECTIVE STRUCTURE (ROPS)
For unpredictable and extreme terrain, add additional protection for your ARGO XTV. Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) provides additional peace of mind when the terrain gets hairy.
The Aurora Responder delivers hope in the face of life and death situations to save lives in challenging and remote locations. These brave warriors are equipped with split seats to provide flexible passenger seating arrangements for any rescue mission. Be safe out there.
The Aurora Responder Series is designed for reliable off-road search and rescue. Equipped for emergencies, a EMS stretcher mount is installed onto the Aurora Responder to allow crew members to rear-load stretchers. Head out brave and come home safe.
WINCH AND BRUSHGUARD
Pulling power for when you need it most. The 3,500-lb WARN winch mounts on the front of your ARGO brushguard to assist with high-angle extractions of equipment or debris.
