Engine Lineup

Two powerful next-generation engine options allow you to choose the right power source for your ride.

The new 8000-Series C-TEC2 delivers the next level of ultra-clean, ultra-responsive Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine performance with enhanced 165-hp class power and precision oil. Designed by Arctic Cat and built in St. Cloud, Minn, this new 794cc C-TEC2 twin also features new cylinders, pistons, combustion chamber, flywheel, and fuel rail, plus a new fuel calibration strategy and Arctic Power Valve system with 3-stage control of the auxiliary exhaust ports via side valves.

Or opt for the 6000-Series 599cc C-TEC2 Engine with Dual-Stage Injection (DSI) – the first clean technology Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine and the leader in 125-hp class performance.

Both engines feature: 

  • ECM-controlled electronic oil pump
  • Batteryless EFI
  • Exhaust Pop Temperature Sensor (EPTS)
  • Knock Sensor
  • Engine Reverse Technology
  • An exceedingly robust, lightweight design  
AMS Front Suspension

Arctic Mountain Suspension is tailor-made to maneuver in deep snow. The lightweight, forged-aluminum spindles sit at a 27 degree spindle caster angle, providing optimal ski camber for off-trail cornering and more predictable counter-steering when side-hilling. They’re built to reduce drag, while the dual-phase alloy-steel A-arms are lightweight and durable.

Power Claw Track

Power Claw Track is built lightweight, with a single-ply design and a 3.0-inch pitch — all so you can master deep snow runs. Its stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won't fold over or take a set, and Attack 20 paddles let you float over the deep stuff.
