“We are excited to offer enthusiasts a four-seat version of our popular pure
sport Wildcat ROV,” said Claude Jordan, chairman and chief executive officer
of Arctic Cat. “Consumer interest in sport ROVs continues to grow and we are
committed to gaining further market share in this industry segment. We built
the Wildcat 4 with many industry-leading features found in the Wildcat 1000,
which we introduced in our fiscal third quarter last year, and added
innovative new technologies and features to create an unrivalled customer

For the Wildcat 4 1000, Arctic Cat designed a completely new drive and driven
clutch in partnership with the leading clutch authority, Team Industries. The
new clutching system improves the vehicle’s acceleration and the
responsiveness of the engine’s massive torque and horsepower. In addition, a
new sway bar has been designed to work in conjunction with all-new shocks.

The Wildcat 4 provides an industry leading 18-inches of rear suspension travel
and 13-inches of ground clearance. Its full perimeter exoskeleton chassis was
stretched 29 inches to accommodate four occupants with best-in-class comfort
and leg room. The interior has a locking glove box and cup holders, four
high-back bucket seats with three-point seat belts and four tube-frame doors
with integrated nets.

Powering the Wildcat 4 is a V-Twin, SOHC, liquid-cooled, 951cc, electronic
fuel injection engine built to provide massive torque and improved
acceleration. The automatic transmission has a park-in-gear shifter with
reverse, neutral, high and low gears, and easily shifts from two-wheel to
four-wheel drive, using a dashboard switch. The variable assist electronic
power steering is designed to maintain a light steering input effort, with an
infinitely adjustable tilt steering wheel.

The Wildcat 4 1000 is available in three painted metallic color choices:
Sunset Orange, Black and Arctic Green.
