Wildcat 1000i GT

So right in so many ways. That’s how the industry is describing Arctic Cat’s sandrail-inspired Wildcat. The sport Side by Side that ascends the steepest sand dunes one day, flexes its articulation across rocky landscapes the next, and blasts up and down uncharted logging roads whenever the urge arises. In all categories — suspension, handling and power — the Wildcat beats the competition’s versions hands down, time and time again. OK, then. Bragging rights aside, here are the 2014 models.

Wildcat Standard
The Wildcat 1000 comes with electronic power steering, tilt steering, FOX Podium shocks and Duro Kaden tires. Like the Limited model, it’s available in Orange Metallic and Team Arctic Green Metallic.

13'' Ground Clearance

The limits of articulation are stretched even further with 13" of ground clearance. Rocks, logs, even downed trees are there for your climbing enjoyment.

18'' Rear Suspension Travel

Our theory is this: give ’em tons of suspension travel and they will find a way to use it. Industry-leading 18" of travel allows you to hit the sand dunes at your own dominating pace.

FOX Podium Shocks

Adjustable FOX Podium shocks featuring 23-position compression adjustments provide a more precisely tuned ride resulting in superior handling.

5-LINK Rear Suspension / FOX Podium

The 5-link rear suspension keeps the maximum tire patch on the ground by creating 18 inches of rear suspension travel. FOX® Podium shocks with 23-position compression adjustment let you dial in your ride.

TEAM Rapid Response Clutch

The rugged TEAM® Rapid Response™ clutch gets high marks. It’s lightweight, tough and designed to create minimal friction. But without a doubt the best thing about it is how effortlessly it transfers power.    

Fox Podium Shocks with Compression Adjust and Swaybar

All-new adjustable Fox Podium shocks with 23-position compression adjustment for a more precisely tuned ride and superior handling. Why taste the dust of others, when you can taste victory. The new sway bar helps control body roll which provides you with better handling in the corners.
