GEAR: John Deere’s special edition “Midnight Black” Gators are the UTVs Batman would drive
| August 08, 2014 |
John Deere has launched two special edition Gator Utility vehicles that eschew the typical green paint job for a much more sinister shade.
The “Midnight Black” XUV825i and RSX850i Gator UTVs are highlighted by a custom matte black paint scheme with charcoal gray graphics.
The vehicles are available now in limited quantities at select dealers.
The 50-horsepower 812 cc XUV825i Gator is outfitted with a sport steering wheel, power steering, high performance exhaust, a long-range light kit and poly half doors. The vehicle is also equipped with matte black alloy rims and Maxxis 2.0 Bighorn tires.
Additionally the XUV825i includes a cargo box with spray-on liner.
To customize the Gator further, a power and front protection package is available for customers who prefer power lift, a front brushguard and fender guard, as well as floor mats. The XUV model is available with either sport bucket seats or a bench seat.
The 62-horsepower 839 cc RSX850i Gator also includes custom matte black paint scheme with charcoal gray decals, but with black and silver alloy rims rigged out with Maxxis 2.0 Bighorn tires.
The trail-sport package features a door closeout panel with Gator image, PreRunner bumper, and a Warn 3,500-pound winch.
In addition, the vehicle includes a full underbody aluminum skid plate, mounted Hella HID Sport lights, Fox 2.0 Performance Series shocks, 2-inch front receiver hitch, side nerf bars and cargo box rails. The RSX850i model comes installed with sports seats.
