John Deere Gator Mid-Duty XUV 550Now it's easier than ever to conquer tough terrain and bring your buddies and gear along for the ride. The new John Deere Gator Mid-Duty XUV 550 and 550 S4 crossover utility vehicles offer off-road performance, improved comfort, cargo versatility and the ability to transport up to four people across the most challenging landscapes.

With best-in-class, fully independent, double wishbone suspension, the Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 provide 9 inches of wheel travel and up to 10.5 inches of ground clearance to smooth out the ride. In addition, for the 550, you can choose from either standard high back bucket seats or bench seats. The 550 S4 comes standard with twp rows of bench seats.

John Deere Gator Mid-Duty XUV 550 S4The Gator XUV 550 and 550 S4 deliver mid-duty work capability with speed and ease. Both vehicles have a top speed of 28 mph and 4-wheel drive to quickly traverse all types of terrain. The 16-hp, 570cc, air-cooled, V-twin gas engine provides greater speed and horsepower than most vehicles in its class and the cargo box can carry up to 400 lbs. of gear. In addition, the 550 is small enough to fit in the bed of a standard pick-up truck.

For a larger crew and cargo versatility, the 550 S4 provides rear seat flexibility. Two additional passengers can be transported in the rear seat or if more cargo capacity is needed, the rear seat flips down to become a cargo rack.

The S4 can transport up to four people, but for times when you need to carry more gear, the back seat can become more useful in seconds and increase your cargo space by 32 percent.

The new Gator XUV 550 models are available in Realtree Hardwoods HD Camo or traditional John Deere green and yellow.

In addition to the XUV 550 and 550 S4, John Deere also offers the 625i, 825i and the 855D to round out its full line of crossover utility vehicles.
