Augusta, Georgia -- Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc., a Textron Inc. company, today announced three new Textron Off Road side-by-sides (SxS) as part of its continuing Model Year 2019 vehicle introductions. Joining the Havoc X are the Havoc and Havoc Backcountry Edition, and the Wildcat XX receives more horsepower and sees the addition of the Wildcat XX LTD to the line.
"We are excited to expand the Havoc and Wildcat XX offerings for 2019," said John Collins, Vice President, Consumer for Textron Specialized Vehicles. "Both vehicles were highly anticipated and continue to see growth in the marketplace. The new models give enthusiasts even more options from which to choose to meet their specific needs and uses."
The 2019 Havoc X is a SxS for riders who want to push the limits of adventure on the trails and get hard work done around the homestead. With its 100HP EFI engine, class-leading suspension - now featuring FOX 2.5 PODIUM QS3 shocks with compression adjustment -- 13 inches of ground clearance, industry-first extended cab for additional storage space, class-leading 2,000-lb towing capacity, and 600-lb cargo box, the Havoc X continues to create a stir in the SxS marketplace. The Havoc X is offered in Ballistic Bronze with a MSRP of $17,799.
For 2019, the Havoc line also added high-bolstered bench seats for improved ergonomics and comfort, and welcomed two new models, the Havoc and Havoc Backcountry Edition.
The new Havoc Backcountry Edition is perfect for recreational riders. The vehicle features a standard roof and hood rack, and its exclusive styling features a Bright White with Orange color with Backcountry badging. Recreation riders will enjoy new high-bolstered seats which provide more space and all-day comfort for long hours on the trail. The Havoc Backcountry Edition retails for $17,799.
Farmers and ranchers will appreciate the new Havoc base model. With its 100HP EFI engine providing power for the toughest tasks, standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS), class-leading 12.8-inch front suspension travel, 2,000-lb towing capacity, 24-cu-ft of storage with extended cab, and 600-lb cargo box, the vehicle is a strong and reliable work partner. The 2019 Havoc retails for $16,299 and is available in Fire Red.
Earlier this year, the high-performance SxS market changed with the introduction of the Textron Off Road Wildcat XX. Designed in collaboration with off-road racing legend Robby Gordon, the Wildcat XX is built for a superior ride in every aspect. The off-road racing-inspired suspension delivers best-in-class handling with more than 18 inches of front and rear travel. The FOX 2.5 PODIUM QS3 Shocks with Bottom-Out Control are precision-tuned at the factory with the flexibility to absorb and smooth out the most challenging rides.
For 2019, the Wildcat XX gets an upgrade in horsepower to 130HP, and is still the highest horsepower, naturally aspirated vehicle in its class. The vehicle is offered in Bright White with a MSRP of $20,699.
New for 2019, the Wildcat XX LTD sports all the features of the Wildcat XX with several additions that make it even easier to take it from the showroom straight to the trail. To protect the vehicle from brush and other trail hazards, the vehicle features front and rear bumpers. Protection for occupants include a half windshield and heavy-duty, marine-grade Bimini Roof featuring a built-in roll-up top with a sun screen for nice days. Riders also can listen to their favorite tunes while cruising the trails with the vehicle's factory-installed SSV stereo system. For superior weather resistance, the audio system includes all marine-grade components, including an integrated amp, two Kicker speakers, custom enclosures and wiring harness. The system is controlled with a Bluetooth controller and LCD display that includes an AM/FM tuner and AUX input. The new Wildcat XX LTD is available in Jet Black and retails for $21,999.
All Havoc and Wildcat XX models are proudly built in Thief River Falls, Minn. and will be available in dealerships this fall.
