In case you hadn’t heard, Arctic Cat was purchased by Textron Inc. in March 2017. Since then, the company has been transitioning Cat’s off-road vehicle line under the new name Textron Offroad.

In August, the company announced its 2018 lineup, with 18 models included. Names you’ll recognize on the UTV side of things are the Wildcat and Prowler. The Stampede, however, comes from Textron’s product line, which was formerly known as Bad Boy Offroad.

Available in two- and four-person models, the 2018 Stampede series is powered by an 846-cc EFI engine that produces 80-horsepower and 59 ft-lb of torque. It comes with on-demand all-wheel drive and standard electronic power steering. Upgrade to the X trim package and you’ll also get premium seats, 14-inch aluminum wheels and 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires.

The Stampede also boasts the industry’s first extended cab design, which means that between the bed, dash pockets and extended cab, there is 24 cubic feet of storage in the two-seater model and 30 cubic feet of storage in the four-seater. Towing capacity for both is 2,000 pounds and cargo 600 pounds with a tilt bed to make unloading and loading easier.
