ARCTIC CAT THUNDERCAT 900/1000 TRIPLE

THE 10 BEST SNOWMOBILE ENGINES OF ALL TIME! This list of 10 encapsulates all that is great in snowmobile powerplants going back several decades.

The snowmobiling world probably wasn’t ready for the arrival of the original 900cc 163-hp Suzuki triple in the Thundercat.

In the early 1990s it was Arctic Cat that pushed the performance envelope first. When the competition responded, Cat came back with a bigger bullet, the 1000 Thundercat!

Inasmuch as the 1000 was outrageously powerful and fully capable of 120-mph pulls down Kevlar Lake, it was a gentle giant with an easy engagement and exceptionally smooth power delivery.

The competition threw everything it had at the T-Cat but as time is our witness, the monstrous reed-inducted, triple-piped-triple reigned supreme for almost a decade.
