ALTERRA 700 XT.
ALTERRA 500 XT.
NEW ALTERRA ATVs
For 2016, Arctic Cat renames
its XR-series 4x4 the Alterra and
adds a new 450 and 400 to the line
that feature the modern styling and
improved ergonomics common to
the Alterra family. The Alterra lineup
includes a 700, 550, 500, 450 and 400.
All Alterra 4x4s have single-overhead-cam, four-valve engines, and all but
the 400 are liquid-cooled. The 450
has a smaller chassis than the 500,
but both use the same 443cc engine.
All models have fully automatic
transmissions and independent front
and rear suspension.
There are base and XT models
of the Alterra 700 and 550, and the
700, 550, and 500 feature 4WD with
front differential lock. The XT package
includes power steering, painted
bodywork, alloy wheels and LED-accented headlights. The 500 is only
available in XT trim.
The mighty 1000 XT is powered by
a single-overhead-cam, 951cc, eight-valve V-twin. It has a fully automatic
transmission with engine braking
and selectable 2WD/4WD with front
differential-lock mode. The XT trim level
includes power steering, aluminum
wheels and painted bodywork.
