Caterpillar introduces 5-seat utility vehicles

Caterpillar has expanded its recently-launched range of utility vehicles (UTV) with two five-seat models.

The product line now includes the gasoline-powered Cat CUV85 and diesel-powered CUV105 D, both of which feature a second row of seating to accommodate a total of five people.

Caterpillar says that the CUV85 and CUV105 D comfortably seat five riders with copious leg, elbow and headroom for tall riders. Behind-the-seat storage and document holders provide space for personal items and gear. Passenger seat bases can be removed and stowed behind the rear seat back to create floor space for hauling oversized items.

The new UTV models will be available throughout the United States and Canada, excluding California and Quebec.

The first-ever Cat utility vehicles had been introduced last year: the gasoline-powered Cat CUV82 and diesel-powered CUV102 D.

The new CUV85 and CUV105 D offer 1,000lb total rear cargo capacity and 2,000lb (907-kg) towing capacity. They have a four-wheel independent suspension system with a front sway bar for stability at full load. The machines’ long swing-arm suspension, custom-tuned springs and shocks have been designed to deliver a balance between a smooth ride and hauling loads. Ample ground clearance has been provided for navigation across rough terrain.

Caterpillar said that the UTVs can efficiently complete hauling tasks, quickly maneuvering over rugged terrain on site at speeds reaching 45mph depending on model.
