The model has been equipped with a digital instrument cluster, improved engine braking with a redesigned descent control system, a bigger capacity 55A alternator and a much larger 27.6 litre fuel tank.

The new electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system, introduced earlier this year, is now standard on the XUV 855D Gator with olive and black livery, and optional on the green and yellow version.

The instrument displays the odometer, ground speed, fuel level and coolant temperature, engine rpm, a clock and the four-wheel drive indicator. It can be adjusted for different tyre sizes to ensure that the ground speed is accurately shown, particularly when using sprayer or spreader attachments, or driving on the road.

The 25hp XUV 855D Gator has a top speed of 32mph (52kph) and features true on-demand four-wheel drive, activated by a dash-mounted electronic switch and all-round suspension, adjustable at the rear. Ground clearance is 267mm, total payload is 635kg and towing capacity is 680kg.

The Gator’s standard four post ROPS frame can be optionally upgraded to a deluxe full glass cab if required, and further options include alloy wheels, tool carriers and cargo box dividers, a front mounted load rack, a bull bar and side extensions. A rear bumper and horn are now standard.
