2013 Wildcat LTD
WILDCAT 1000 / LIMITED
Dirt Roosting Redefined
If the 951cc engine is the heart
of the Wildcat, then the chassis is
its soul. The full perimeter frame is
an industry first on a mass produced
vehicle. The High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) exoskeleton frame has
gone through extensive testing to
withstand the excessive loads sent
through the chassis via the massive
suspension travel.
With a 40 front/60 rear weight
distribution, the front end remains
light for better chassis dynamics
when tackling gnarly terrain at high
speed. Occupants in the cockpit of
the Wildcat are located near the low
center of gravity (CG). Since the entire vehicle pivots around the CG, the
occupants are more comfortable and
confident while driving because they
are less affected by the movements
of the vehicle while the chassis and
suspension are doing their jobs.
Pure Sport ROV, and the Wildcat has
answered their demands. The front
and rear suspensions of the Wildcat
are a work of pure engineering brilliance. No other 64-inch wide ROV can
claim to maintain wheel geometry
through its full range of travel.
An industry-leading 17 inches of
front and 18 inches of rear suspension travel is smoothed out by Walker
Evans Racing shocks. Designed from
a lifetime of off-road competition
and experience, these shocks feature
single compression adjustability
with a remote reservoir and dual-rate
springs. Completely machined out
of billet and made in the USA, these
Walker Evans Racing Shocks have the
ability to push the Wildcat harder,
for longer, than any other ROV on
the market. The ride-in suspension
gives improved comfort and traction
to flatten out the biggest whoop
sections.
The Wildcat’s rear suspension
rivals most offroad race trucks with a
first-ever 5-pt multi-link trailing arm
system that keeps the contact patch
of the tire flat while the suspension
fully cycles through an industry-leading 18 inches of travel. The 5-pt multilink reduces camber and axle plunge
to soak up the harshest terrain while
allowing the Wildcat to have a lighter
chassis because all the links work
together to soak up the loads.
SUSPENSION
ENGINE
Suspension capability was the
number one request from any consumer asked what they’d like from a
Arctic Cat engines have power
where it matters: the ground. The
V-Twin, SOHC, liquid cooled, 951cc,
The Wildcat 1000 answered the
call for pure-sport UTV enthusiasts
nationwide in 2012. Purpose-built
to conquer trophy truck-sized Baja
whoop sections with the utmost of
speed, precision and control, the
Wildcat 1000 is unmatched with an
industry-leading, 5-Link rear suspension, 13 inches of ground clearance
and a whopping 18 inches of suspension travel!
CHASSIS
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) fourstroke is built for massive torque and
serious arm stretching power via an
equal length, 2-into-1 tuned exhaust
that is ceramic coated. Arctic Cat
engineers crafted this torque-tuned
motor for the ultimate performance
via an all-new air intake system and
50mm throttle bodies. The close
coupled, mid-engine configuration
allows the occupants to have more
room while reducing cockpit noise.
VARIABLE ASSIST ELECTRONIC
POWER STEERING (EPS)
A first in its class, Arctic Cat’s Variable Assist Electronic Power Steering (EPS) allows steering assistance
to the ROV before it even starts to
move at idle. This is a huge benefit to
conserving the driver's input energy
when in 4WD, and especially when
the differential lock is engaged.
Arctic Cat EPS will reduce the torque
necessary to steer the ROV when
changing direction or navigating
tough obstacles like washouts, rocks
or mud.
The variable assist system is
driven by an electronic control unit
(ECU) that measures steering input
force versus tire resistance and
vehicle speed then provides appropriate assist to the steering column
through an electric motor. The Arctic
Cat power steering ECU program is
designed to maintain a light steering
input effort, but maintains enough

feel so you have a better understanding of what the tire contact patch is
doing in relation to the terrain. Arctic
Cat EPS will keep the driver and the
ROV connected which is lost on competitive units after sustained riding.
INTERIOR
Every high performance vehicle is
defined by the area the driver spends
the most time – the interior. With
the highest performance in mind,
Arctic Cat stylists set out to create
the ultimate in comfort starting with
the high back bucket seats with upper
body supports that would rival any aftermarket suspension seat available.
The cut and sewn design cradles the
Wildcat occupants, reducing fatigue.
The 3-point seat belt with elastic top
band has an anti-cinch design to keep
you in place through the harshest
terrain.
Getting in and out of the Wildcat
is unbelievably easy with tube frame
doors with integrated nets to compliment the exterior lines. Pivoting from
the rear and latching at the front via
a simple one-latch mechanism, the
doors open quickly and easily and fall
out of the way to provide a hassle-free
entry/departure. An infinitely adjustable tilt steering wheel allows you to
adjust your steering preferences and
an all-new left hand passenger grab
handle is easy-to-grip.
A 5-inch digital/analog round
gauge provides great visibility with
its mid-dash location while improving
your outward vision during driving. A
locking glovebox aids in easy storage of cell phone, cameras, hats and
other valuables, while two cup holders
placed forward of the shifter ensure
your arm doesn’t hit them while driving but remain easy to reach.
PREMIUM FEATURES
The Wildcat is rich with premium
features starting with five painted
color choices: black metallic, green
metallic and orange metallic, while
the Limited models are also available
in vibrant red or white metallic/orange
with color matched seats and front
and rear aluminum bumpers. Classleading LED headlights and taillights
shine bright; compared to an HID, the
white light projected from the LED is
clearer, and the Lumens are two times
brighter than a halogen system while
utilizing 50% less wattage.
The rear cargo bed has the largest
capacity in its class with a 300 lb. payload to carry a cooler and a gerry can
of gas. The transmission has a parkin-gear shifter with Reverse, Neutral,
High and Low gears while the 2/4WD/
diff lock switch is easy to locate on the
dashboard. A 12V accessory outlet is
located in the center console for GPS
or cell phone adapters.
