Mount up. The Aurora 950 Bigfoot MX8 is raring to go on its next adventure. With the full amphibious body, the Aurora 8x8 Series is the premium platform for ARGO, making it the most advanced and powerful XTV available. The massive V-Twin engine options give you the high-performance power to conquer obstacles at work or at play. The new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) technology complements the Admiral transmission with ARGO Progressive Steering for a smooth and comfortable ride. This modern-day land-and-water warrior is ready to take on nature’s toughest battles. Charge!
950 SERIES ENGINE
Our highest horsepower engine available on an XTV, this 40HP 4-stroke EFI big block V-Twin engine is built to never let you down. Along with the strong torque you get with this machine, it is a true point and shoot, go-anywhere XTV.
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.
WINCH AND BRUSHGUARD
Pulling power for when you need it most. ARGO’s WARN winch mounts on the front to assist with high-angle extractions of equipment or debris. Comes standard on this year's Bigfoot MX8.
