The all-new 2018 Havoc X from Textron Off Road is a high-performance side-by-side flexing a hardcore work ethic and hair-raising wild streak. An all-conquering crossover, it blends class-leading suspension and ground clearance with enormous payload and towing capacities, all reinforced by the smile-inducing glory of 100 horsepower and 67-ft.-lbs. of torque.
In short: a Havoc side-by-side will conquer the backcountry as comfortably as it will handle the back forty. It will tame the trails and transport trophy game.
This machine bullies its way to the top of the crossover category with a class-leading double A-arm suspension package delivering 12.8 and 12.9 inches of front and rear suspension travel. Premium 2.5-inch aluminum King shocks provide race-proven features like piggyback reservoirs and 30-position compression adjustability for maximum performance, whether it’s crawling over rocks or pounding through bumps. Front and rear sway bars reduce body roll and keep handling smooth and predictable.
The bump-swallowing suspension performance is matched by the 13 inches of class leading ground clearance. Fully-loaded, it boasts upwards of 18 percent more ground clearance than the competition, with 9.5/8.375 inches of front/rear clearance to ride over anything in its way.
When duty calls, a Havoc UTV gets the job done with a 600-lb. capacity rear dump bed that’s aided by the quick and simple Fast-N-Latch bed accessory storage system. Its signature extended cab contributes to the nearly 24-cu.-ft. of added storage that’s easily accessed and substantially useful. A 2,000-lb. towing capacity adds even greater versatility for any job.
Yet there’s no mistaking that a Havoc side-by-side is engineered to deliver heart-pounding thrills with 100 hp on tap whenever it’s playtime. That power comes fast and furious thanks to the 957cc SOHC twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled EFI engine that is designed and built by Textron. It feeds its 100 horsepower and 67-ft.-lbs. of torque to a smooth and durable CVT system.
