More American Muscle in Side-By-Side Performance

September 2018 Feature

The hardest working and playing side-by-side roosts into 2019 with more options in crossover performance and customization. The Havoc X is now joined by the all-new Havoc base and Havoc Backcountry Edition models from Textron Off Road, each blending class-leading suspension and ground clearance with maximum payload and the foot-stomping glory of 100 hp and 67-ft.-lbs. of torque. The result is a trio of all conquering crossovers ready to conquer everything from the back forty to the backcountry with precision performance and work-friendly dependability.

Havoc models tackle 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. Front and rear sway bars reduce body roll and keep handling smooth and predictable, while the 13 inches of class leading ground clearance is enough to easily clear gnarly terrain.

When it’s time to work, Havoc models feature their signature extended cab and 24 cubic feet of storage that’s easily accessed and useful for most types of gear. The 600-lb. capacity rear dump bed is aided by the quick and simple Fast-N-Latch bed accessory storage system and matched by 2,000-lb. towing capacity for maximum versatility to handle any job.

Hit the gas on a Havoc side-by-side. With 100 hp with 67 ft.-lbs. of torque, it announces itself with full authority thanks to the 957cc SOHC twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled EFI engine that is designed and built by Textron Motors.

The selectable on-demand AWD system puts the power exactly where it’s needed, while four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with 9-inch rotors and dual piston calipers deliver enhanced braking performance. A programmable speed controller that allows the operator to set a maximum top speed from 26 to 55 mph (in 1 mph increments) to ensure that Havoc models are operated at the appropriate speed for the driver and task.

Havoc models hit the highest marks in comfort and convenience. All-new high-bolstered bench seats offer more room and comfort for 2019, with 4 inches of adjustability. The dash features an industry-leading 5.25x3.25-inch LCD display with adjustable backlighting. And high power LED headlights deliver optimum visibility, with LED  accent lights for a touch of custom style.

Additional features include Electronic Power Steering (EPS), 9.5 gallons of fuel capacity, standard 2-inch receiver hitch, 12v accessory outlet, passenger grab handle, glove box, steel front brush guard and adjustable tilt steering.

Every Havoc side-by-side boasts a 12-month warranty. It’s proudly built in Thief River Falls, MN, and will be available at Textron Off Road dealerships beginning in December.

The base model Havoc comes with performance shocks, 14-inch steel wheels and 27-inch Duro Powergrip tires, and is available in Fire Red.

The Havoc X features the quick adjustability of premium Fox 2.5 Podium QS3 gas shocks, 14-inch cast aluminum wheels with 28-inch ITP Ultracross tires, premium bolstered seats, and a 4,500-lb. WARN winch. It comes in Ballistic Bronze with color-matched A-arms, brush guard and ROPS.

Havoc Technology

1000 Engine

Designed and built by Textron Motors, the twin-cylinder 957cc SOHC engine produces 100 hp and 67-ft.-lbs. of torque. It boasts Electronic Fuel Injection system for quick throttle response and improved fuel economy; a dry sump oil system that creates lower oil temperatures, less friction and increased oil life; and a forged crankshaft, camshaft and connecting rods for added durability. It’s liquid-cooled with an auxiliary fan for consistent performance in all conditions.

High/Low/Reverse/Park With Electronic On-Demand AWD

The rugged transaxle system on the drivetrain features High range, Low range, Neutral, Reverse and Park. Electronically selectable on-the-fly 2- and 4-wheel-drive is bolstered by a auto-locking front differential to achieve the desired traction and drive control in varying conditions.

Double A-arm Suspensions

Double A-arm front and rear suspension deliver premium comfort and control in a full range of terrain conditions via optimized geometry and 12.8 inches of front and 12.9 inches of rear travel. Front and rear sway bars enhance positive cornering.

2-Inch Rear Receiver

A rugged, automotive-style 2-inch rear receiver hitch simplifies towing applications when utilizing the 2,000- lb. towing capacity.

Four-Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Dual-piston hydraulic disc brakes with 9-inch steel rotors on each wheel deliver enhanced braking performance and feel, effectively controlling all four wheels during deceleration.

Fox 2.5 Podium QS3 Shocks (Havoc X)

Premium Fox 2.5 Podium QS3 shocks deliver maximum suspension control and performance. The massive 2.5-inch body and piggyback design provides fade-free performance in the most demanding conditions, with maximum control via the internal valve stacks. The QS3 design offers quick and simple compression adjustability between Soft, Medium and Firm settings via the QS3 dial, so owners can easily dial-in the performance to match the conditions and riding style.

High-Bolstered Bench Seats

Improved for 2019, the high-bolstered bench seats are reshaped to provide more leg room and support, as well as greater comfort for driver and passenger.

Electronic Power Steering (EPS)

Electronic Power Steering provides varying electronic steering assist depending upon conditions, effort and speed. An Electronic Control Unit measures steering input force in relation to vehicle speed and tire resistance in order to provide the appropriate assist to the steering column via an electronic brushless motor. The varying levels of assist translate into a light steering input effort, especially when in 4WD with a locked differential, but with optimal feedback so that the rider senses the tire contact with the terrain.

Class-Leading Ground Clearance

Havoc offers 13 inches of unloaded ground clearance, plus best-in-class clearance when fully loaded.

600-Lb. Capacity Tilt Bed

A versatile tilting rear cargo bed offers 600 lbs. of gear-carrying capacity and versatility, with integrated Fast-N-Latch System for added ease when securing items and custom Fast-N-Latch accessories.

LED Headlights

Powerful LED headlights deliver optimal visibility, while LED accent lighting provides distinguished styling.

Extended Cab

The one-of-a-kind extended cab provides additional space to load and secure gear that you want to keep separate from the cargo box. Drop-down access panels ease loading/unloading gear.

Full-Sized Doors

Large, automotive-style doors offer a 10-sq.-ft. opening, easing getting into and out of the Havoc’s spacious cab. Impact and corrosion-resistant, they’re built safe, durable and easy to clean.
