Mid-Size Gator™ XUV
Save more than just time when you cross over to the mighty Mid-Size Series. With a redesigned display inside a spacious interior, the Mid-Size Gator UV lets you spend more time focused on the next turn or the next job. So step up to a four-wheel drive that engages with a single switch and shifts seamlessly from drive to park and everywhere in between.
Precision-engineered drive system optimizes acceleration, hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities
The Gator™ XUV Mid-Size Crossover Series Utility Vehicles have a precision-engineered drivetrain system that fully utilizes engine power, optimizing acceleration, hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities. Power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to the transaxle.
Key elements of the drive system include:
The variable-speed drive consists of two clutches and a drive belt:
- Drive clutch is attached to the engine.
- Driven clutch is attached to the transaxle.
- Ability to creep along slowly to maneuver in tight spaces
- Standard full-clutch enclosure with a high intake and exhaust ensures a dry belt when crossing water
- High-speed fan on drive clutch provides longer belt and clutch life by keeping components cool
- TEAM® industry clutches provide high performance and longevity
How the variable-speed drive works:
- As engine speed increases, the spring-loaded drive clutch is closed by weights being forced out by centrifugal force.
- As the drive clutch closes, the belt rides up to the largest diameter of the drive clutch and forces open the driven clutch.
- With the belt running in the smallest diameter of the driven clutch, the speed being transferred to the transaxle is increased.
- The driven clutch is designed to sense varying loads (inclines, mud, etc.) and constantly adjusts drive speed upward or downward so that engine rpm remains optimal.
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE (4WD), TRANSAXLE, MECHANICAL FRONT-WHEEL DRIVE (MFWD), AND CONSTANT-VELOCITY (CV) SHAFTS
- Selectable 4WD system with a limited slip front differential and dash-mounted electronic rocker switch
- Provides exceptional traction in challenging conditions
- Maintains turf-friendly operation in two-wheel drive (2WD) mode
- Combined with rear traction assist (differential lock), provides excellent traction in challenging conditions
- More control descending hills with 4WD engaged, as all four wheels help slow the vehicle down
- Clutch engagement still necessary to prevent free coasting
- Low, high, neutral, reverse, and park transaxle
- Automotive-style, integrated park position in transmission
- To shift out of park, service brake must be pressed to release the parking solenoid. An audible click will be heard and allows the vehicle to shift out of park into the desired gear.
- Low range for maximum torque delivered to the wheels for hauling, pushing, and pulling
- High range for maximum vehicle speed
- Cast-aluminum design for lower weight
- Helical forward and reverse gears are used for quiet operation
- Rear traction assist (differential lock) is controlled with an electronic rocker switch
- NOTE: Locked differential design may increase scuffing of the turf during turns because the rear wheels are turning at the same speed through a turn.
- Contains gear-case for transferring power to the MFWD
- Splined shaft interfaces for maximum torque transfer and durability
- All drive gears machined from highest grade gear steel
- Vertically oriented oil drain for easy maintenance
- Protected by a skid plate
- Electronically selectable by the operator
- Offers limited slip functionality for precision steering and great traction while pointing and shooting out of a corner.
- Near instantaneous torque to the front wheels after engaging switch
- Vertically oriented oil drain for easy maintenance
- Protected by a steel skid plate and frame
- Front and rear CV shaft diameter measures 23 mm (0.9 in.) and designed for high engine torque
- Propshaft (transaxle to MFWD shaft) diameter measures 23.8 mm (0.94 in.) and designed for high engine torque
- All CV shaft joints are maintenance free and protected by exclusive inboard and outboard thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) boots for durability. TPE material is more puncture resistant than neoprene, which is used by many competitors.

Large, extra-durable, one-piece cargo box ensures hard-driving performance and longevity
The cargo box consists of a high-density polyethylene copolymer composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise. This large, one-piece design has rounded inside corners to ensure material removal when tilted. The composite box is highly ribbed and supported with a welded, steel-ladder structure to ensure hard-driving performance and longevity. The three highly styled exterior pieces are made of TPO for extra durability.
CARGO BOX TAILGATE
The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. It features truck-like performance and can be operated with one hand.
The tailgate’s pivot point is made of hardened steel for durability and designed for tool-free removal. The standard lanyards can also be disconnected without tools to remove the tailgate for convenient loading and unloading tasks.
CARGO BOX TILT AND REMOVAL
The cargo box ease of use is critical to performing tasks quickly and efficiently. Starting with the truck-style tailgate, the removal of content in this cargo box could not be easier. The manual release also functions as the lift lever, done in a smooth, one-step motion. It can even be tilted from both sides of the vehicle. To reduce the overall effort of lift, the pivot point of the cargo box is closer to the center. The combination of easy-to-use attributes makes this cargo box best-in-class.
For servicing the vehicle’s systems, the cargo box is easily removable. With the removal of two bolts, the cargo box can easily be detached from the vehicle frame.
INTEGRATED TIE-DOWN POINTS
The cargo box offers integrated tie-down points for increased versatility. Tie-down points are located in the following areas:
- Flip-up D-shaped rings in all four corners inside the cargo box bed
- Multiple points along the edge of the cargo box side walls
- Tie-down bars on either side of the cargo box with optional cargo box rail kit. This kit also provides a mounting system using accessories that possess the 25.4-mm (1-in.) quick clamp.
Optional accessories for the cargo box include (see price pages or JDConfigurator for complete list):
- Cargo box rail system
- Cargo box mat
- Cargo box wall extensions
- Spare tire rack
- Bucket holder
CAUTION: Carrying extra-long cargo that extends beyond the box can adversely affect stability.
