Drivers who demand advanced off-road performance, all-day riding comfort, and the ability to challenge extreme terrain take note—John Deere has entered the Recreational Utility Vehicle category with the all-new, all-powerful Gator RSX850i. It’s been engineered to be faster, more powerful, and more agile than any Gator ever built.

Since the creation of the John Deere All Materials Transport (AMT) in 1987, an event that launched the entire Utility Vehicle (UV) category, and the development of the first Gator UV in 1992, John Deere has built a reputation for durability, utility and safety. The addition of advanced power, high top speed and precision handling signal the next step in evolution for the Gator line of utility vehicles.

"The Gator takes a huge evolutionary step forward with the launch of the new Gator RSX850i," said David Gigandet, marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. "Gators have always been known for durability, utility and safety. The RSX maintains all these qualities at its core, but the incredible power, exhilarating speed and precision handling are what set it apart in our portfolio. It’s the Gator fully evolved."

To bring about these changes, the team at John Deere collaborated with design and engineering consultants for Formula One and NASCAR to create an all-new vehicle. The Gator RSX is the direct result.



There are three RSX models – the Gator RSX850i Sport, the RSX850i Trail and the Base RSX. The Sport model was designed for harsh desert and rocky, sandy terrains and includes sport seats, alloy wheels with Maxxis tires, PreRunner bumper, cargo box rails, sport steering wheel and FOX® 2.0 Performance Series shocks.
