August 07, 2014
John Deere has given their Gator line of utility vehicles a touch of tactical.
The company has announced the offering of two new special edition Gator utility vehicles designed with an emphasis on customization and adaptability. The Gator Midnight Black XUV825i and Gator Midnight Black RSX850i are both built with style in mind and sport a custom matte black paint scheme with charcoal graphics. Each model also offers a number of features to maximize utility.
"More and more outdoor enthusiasts are on the lookout for limited build custom vehicles," said David Gigandet, John Deere marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. "These new models provide customers the durability and productivity they've come to expect with Gators, but in a unique and stylish theme that will capture the attention of John Deere fans and the utility vehicle market."

Offering the user a bit more power, the 62 hp., 839 cc RSX850i Midnight Black Special Edition Gator has the same paint scheme as the XUV825i but sports black and silver alloy rims and Maxxis 2.0 Bighorn tires.
