New Cat On The Prowl: Arctic Cat Introduces The New Wildcat Sport For 2015

Chaparral Motorsports
September 8, 2014

It can often be tough for the middle child, getting lost in the fold of the benchmark achievements of the eldest and the codling of the youngest. Chances are however, Arctic Cat's new Wildcat Sport will have no problem standing out and digging out a favorable niche for itself amongst UTV enthusiasts. Filling a void left between the 64-inch wide Wildcat and the recently introduced, 50-inch Wildcat Trail, the new two-seater 60-inch wide Sport model could satisfy those Goldilocks fans out there who want something that sits more in the middle of the spectrum, you know the one that's "just right."

Offered in three trim levels: Wildcat Sport, Wildcat Sport XT, and Wildcat Sport Limited EPS all three models feature the 60-hp, 700 parallel twin engine that was introduced with the Wildcat Trail. Managed by EFI, power from the four-valves-per cylinder, liquid cooled engine is transferred via a Team Rapid Response clutch, and selectable electronic 2- or 4-wheel drive with front differential lock allows users to quickly and easily optimize the drive based on terrain.

20140908114644The 60-inch wide chassis for the Wildcat Sport model falls in line lengthwise with its narrower brother, the Trail, at a length of 110.5-inches, and comes in 17.5-inches shorter than its elder sibling, the original Wildcat. Compound these stout dimensions with a dropped seat height that puts the rider and passenger 3-inches lower than its competitor and you get one very well balanced machine. To help smooth out the bumps and keep the 26-inch Carlisle Trail Pro tires in unison with the terrain, the sport and XT come with JRi ECX-1 piggyback gas shocks that feature 2.5-inch reservoirs and offer full compression adjustability. The shocks are linked to double A-arms front and rear and rear sway bars allowing for 12.2 inches of travel up front and 12.6 inches of travel at the back. Even with a reduced seat height the Wildcat Sport family can still manage to get up, over, and through rugged terrain with its 13-inches of ground clearance.

Suspension for the Limited model is upgraded with Elka Stage 5 aluminum piggyback gas shocks with Dual-Speed Compression and rebound adjustability to allow users to precisely dial in suspension preferences to achieve a smoother and more predictable ride.

Other highlights across the board for all three models include:


  • New dual-piston caliper hydraulic front brakes
  • Easy-hinge doors with automotive-style handles and latching for easy vehicle entry and exit
  • New fully variable tilt steering mechanism offers greater overall range, infinite adjustability and increased room for driver entry and exit
  • 300-pound rear cargo box capacity
  • 1,500-pound towing capacity
  • 2-inch rear receiver hitch
