CARY, N.C. — Built for varied work applications, John Deere introduces two new and affordable utility vehicles to its lineup. The gas-powered Gator HPX615E and the diesel-powered Gator HPX815E models offer four-wheel drive for improved terrain capability and superior payload, cargo capacity, towing and overall stability.

“These new models offer even more cargo handling versatility,” said Mark Davey, John Deere marketing manager, Gator utility vehicles. “Whether you’re on a construction site or working on the farm, our HPX vehicles are fine-tuned with excellent hauling and handling characteristics to help you get any job done.”

The cargo box offers removable sides and tailgate, a one-handed, pickup style opening, and is designed to last with durable composite construction that makes it dent, rattle and rust-resistant. These new models handle more cargo volume, up to 16.3 cubic feet.  Plus, the cargo box can transition to a flatbed for carrying large, irregular shaped cargo.

Both models boast new styling and a 1000 pound cargo capacity, 1300 pound towing capacity and 1400 pound payload capacity.  The vehicle also offers optimal weight distribution, 6-inches of ground clearance and 4WD. 

The Gator HPX615E and Gator HPX815E utility vehicles will begin shipping to John Deere dealers in Fall 2017.
