Moab, UT (1/28/2015) - For 2015, Arctic Cat has went above and beyond with the release of their new Arctic Cat XR line of utility ATV models that focuses on rider comfort, quality and ease of use. With three different engine sizes to choose from and three different packages, the 2015 Arctic Cat XR utility ATV model line up has something for everyone.

The all-new 2015 Arctic Cat XR Utility ATV was recently invited to Moab, UT to check out the 2015 Arctic Cat XR utility ATV model lineup. As always, Arctic Cat picked a great location for the XR ATV test ride at the Fins and Things trail. Fins and Things is about a ten mile long trail, with some steep hill climbs and descents, and provides spectacular views of the La Sal Mountains across the sandstone domes of Sand Flats. We had great weather for our test ride. Usually the temperatures in January are down in the 30’s at best, but that wasn’t the case as temps were hovering around the 50 degree mark for our journey.

The 2015 Arctic Cat XR utility ATV model lineup includes six models;  the Arctic Cat XR 500, XR 550, XR 550 XT EPS, XR 550 Limited EPS, XR 700, XR 700 XT EPS, and XR 700 Limited EPS with a retail price ranging from $7,799 for the XR 500 to $11,199 for the XR 700 Limited EPS. All the Arctic Cat XR models utilize the same chassis and share many of the same features. During our test ride we got a chance to ride both the Arctic Cat XR 700 and the Arctic Cat XR 550 models equipped with EPS.
