“This update to our Gator family provides even more options for our customers to choose from,” said Mark Davey, John Deere marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. “The XUV560 was crafted to deliver all the bells and whistles you expect from John Deere, at an attractive price tag.”

Available in a two-seat or four-seat model, the XUV560 and XUV560 S4 offer easy entry and exit through an occupant protective structure, and include three point seat belts and side grab handles. Both models offer sealed under-hood storage and feature a one-piece cargo box made of material that eliminates rust and dents and reduces noise, John Deere said.

The Gator XUV560 and XUV560 S4 come standard with four-wheel independent suspension. The Gator models are powered by a 34.8 cubic-inch (570 cc), V-twin gasoline engine, and the carburetor is tuned for rapid throttle response, reliable cold-weather starting, smooth mid-range power delivery and quiet idling, the company said.

Additionally, both models feature a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h). Optional add-ons for the cargo box include a rail system, power lift, wall extensions and a spare tire rack.
