2015 ARCTIC CAT: 4000 Series and Reviving Lynx
A new ProCross sibling is being offered this year and it just makes good, plain sense. Cat's venerable 500 EFI 2-stroke is now available in LXR and Sno-Pro versions of the 129-inch ProCross chassis.
These sleds are called the 4000-Series and offer all the amenities and suspension variations offered by the 6000 and up Cats.
The 4000RR and Sno-Pro replace last year's 500 Sno-Pro and its very limited-build chassis. The designers claim the change to the ProCross 4000 delivers better handling and less weight. These sleds have had a strong history in cross-country racing and the new 4000 will be a nice upgrade on the starting line.
There's life at the bottom of the product line these days and Cat has been absent a few years when it comes to low-cost entry-level and semi-utility sleds.
The 2015 Lynx 2000 is targeted more at entry level buyers than utility but designed to offer second-sled appeal for those willing to live with less features at a lower cost.
Powered by Cat's 570cc fan-cooled 2-stroke twin and offered in both 129-inch (single rider) and 144-inch 2-up (Lynx 2000 LT) under the Twin Spar platform, these sleds are arguably carbon copies of last year's F-570 and T-570.
There's been no compromise on ride quality with either and both incorporate coupling, sliding front arm technology and Torque Sensing Links to iron out the wrinkles on trails.
Cat has gone to a dual-skag carbide on the Lynx to improve handling and eliminate darting and promises pricing will be very attractive.
Both sleds come with run-backwards reverse. Other than the Bearcat, these are the only two Twin Spar models left in Arctic Cat's line-up.
