Argo celebrates 50 years in the off-road
vehicle industry with a new ATV line
ALL-NEW 2018 ARGO XPLORER ATVS &
NEW 2018 ARGO AMPHIBIOUS UTVS
XRT 1000 LE
The Xplorer XRT 1000 LE is a two-rider ATV powered by a V-twin, 997cc,
eight-valve engine. The 4WD system
includes an electronic-locking front
differential and an electric-unlocking,
turf-mode rear differential. The fully
automatic dual-range transmission features active descent control to regulate
speed on steep downhills.
The XRT 1000 LE has dual A-arm
front and rear suspension with 8. 7
inches of travel up front and 9. 3 inches
in the rear. Tri-mode,
rider models have 9.1 inches of front
travel and 10. 4 inches of rear travel. EPS
and LE models have tri-mode, speed-
sensing electronic power steering (TMSS
EPS). The XR 500 LE also comes with
26-inch premium Innova tires mounted
on 14-inch black aluminum wheels.
Available in the same trim levels as
the XRs, the extended wheelbase, two-up XRT 500 includes an ergonomically
designed raised rear seat for exceptional
comfort and visibility for the passenger.
Raised passenger footrests are complemented by adjustable, well-positioned
rear grab-handles. A single handlebar-mounted halogen headlight (LE models)
and dual under-rack-mounted projector
beams make for one of the best lighting
packages in the industry. The Xplorer’s
aggressive styling doesn’t end there; the
XR and XRT 500 models also feature
performance-inspired, fully functional,
chrome dual exhausts.
AVENGER, FRONTIER & CONQUEST
Argo offers recreational versions of its
Avenger, Frontier and Conquest amphibious UTVs and commercial versions of
the Avenger and Conquest equipped
for challenging work conditions. These
machines are steered with handlebars,
and a motorcycle-type twist throttle is
used on the right handlebar. The left
handlebar lever operates all-wheel braking. The wheels don’t steer as on most
UTVs. Turning the handlebars brakes the
left or right row of wheels to provide skid
steering. Wide turns are made with a
series of smaller turns. The Argo chassis
has no springs or shocks. Low-pressure
tires provide the suspension. Argo
amphibious UTVs have full-time six- or
eight-wheel drive and the wheels are
chain-driven. Top speed is 22–25 mph
on land and 3 mph on water.

steering varies assist with
speed for better handling and
feel, and it allows riders to man-
ually select three different assist modes.

models. The XR 500, XR 500 EPS and
XR 500 LE are full-size ATVs powered

fuel-injected engine with 39 horsepower. They also feature selectable
2WD/4WD with electric push-button

front and 9. 4 inches in the rear. Two-
