There’s nothing quite like a change of scenery, especially if that change is set somewhere way back in the middle of nowhere. The amphibious Frontier 650 8x8 helps hunters reach trophy-buck hiding spots, anglers find hard-to-reach honey holes and outdoor newcomers locate areas they never knew existed. ”Hey, look at that!”
This year’s Frontier 8X8 lineup includes a model, engine and price point that zeros in on your specific needs, with features far from ordinary. ARGO Progressive Steering (APS) and the addition of the new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) provide smooth handling for both new and seasoned outdoor enthusiasts. It’s time you create more real-life adventures to drive your affinity for dirt, rocks, mud, water, trees, bugs, wildlife and nature for years to come.
Features may include:
This Small Block V-Twin 23HP fan-cooled engine is designed and engineered to handle the most demanding terrain. Energetic and quick-starting, this powerhouse engine features a number of advanced technologies and integrated components but remain lighter and compact.
The new ARGO Instant Torque Drive System (ITDS) dramatically improves low-end torque and increases acceleration. The new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) is designed to provide the optimal gear ratio shifting seamlessly throughout the full range to utilize the massive torque and power of our engines.
Coupling the new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) with our Admiral or Classic transmission will increase the torque by 28% compared to our previous clutches with a High Torque (HT) transmission and will increase acceleration by 25% compared to our previous clutches with a Standard Torque (ST) transmission, providing you with increased torque and acceleration into one package.
The Classic transmission is our simplest design and operates like a mechanical skid steer, which gives it incredible maneuverability. In order to provide vehicle steering, braking force is applied directly to the output of the appropriate side of the transmission based on operator steering input. In both high and low range, the Classic transmission provides zero-radius turns to get you in and around extreme terrain.
ARGO Progressive Steering (APS) with the Classic transmission achieves a smooth and comfortable drive experience to all XTVs in the Frontier Series.
APS is an innovation in the area of braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system we achieved a progressive, dual-rate steering system. Steering events are now effortless with an increase of 4X wider range of steering motion, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. APS makes it as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
To ensure comfort for the operator and passengers, heat-reflective and absorptive material is integrated into the firewall. A composite exhaust shroud goes one step further and effectively redirects heat while producing a subtle note from the exhaust.
Steel offset rims with low-pressure 24” tires are custom engineered with a paddle design for amphibious propulsion through water and optimized traction on the most extreme off-road terrain.
Yes, this XTV floats. The one-piece amphibious lower body is the signature ARGO design feature. Its smooth, durable underbody floats over potential snags, stumps and outcrops, as well as swamps and water.
