“We are committed to growing our Textron Off Road lineup of powerful, precision-engineered ATVs,” said John Collins, Vice President, Consumer for Textron Specialized Vehicles. “These new vehicles, led by our new Alterra 570 ATV, include several features that provide operators with more power, a more comfortable ride, and the performance to take on tough trails and get a hard day’s work done well.”
New for 2019, the new Textron Off Road Alterra 570 ATV lineup introduces three new machines – Alterra 570, 570 EPS and 570 XT – into the 500 class that is the heart of the ATV sector. Perfect for trail riding, farm work and everything in-between, the vehicles are similar to their higher-powered family member, the Alterra 700, offering the same attractive styling and class-leading suspension travel.
Powering the Alterra 570 models is a 545cc, single-cylinder, closed-loop EFI engine that offers plenty of power to cruise down the trails and get tough jobs done. The Alterra 570’s class-leading 10 inches of front and rear suspension travel, 11 inches of ground clearance, and five-position adjustable front and rear springs provide exceptional ride quality, comfort and ergonomics.
Operators also will appreciate the Rapid Traction System (RTS) on the 570 Base and EPS models, and the Electronic Locking 4WD (EL4) on the 570 XT model. Located on the right handlebar for easy use, the RTS and EL4 technologies enable the rider to activate 4WD while the vehicle is in motion. The systems enable operators to easily switch from 2WD to 4WD while keeping both hands on the handlebars. In addition, the XT model’s EL4 system is electronically controlled, giving the operator the ability to switch on-the-fly between 2WD,4WD and 4WD lock, for ultimate versatility in all different types of driving conditions.
For towing and hauling, the models are equipped with a 2-inch receiver hitch and rugged, steel racks with unlimited tie-down locations. To ensure reliable operation, the battery is located under the seat for protection from mud and debris.
The Alterra 570 is available in Dynamic Gray, and the electronic power steering (EPS) version is available in Dynamic Charcoal and TrueTimber® Kanati Camo. The Alterra 570 XT is available in Fire Red and features EL4 and aluminum wheels. These models are sold with a one-year warranty.
