John Deere XUV 550 Gator Utility Vehicle

Delivers quick acceleration and provides a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph)

Class-leading stability, including occupant protection system (OPS)

Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners

Sleek styling exemplifies capable off-road, yet hard-working performance

Designed for best-in-class comfort with many vehicle conveniences

The XUV 550 Crossover Series Utility Vehicles are powered by a 570-cc, V-twin gasoline engine. The carburetor is tuned for rapid throttle response, reliable cold-weather starting, smooth mid-range power delivery and quiet idling.

 

The engine offers the following performance and reliability features:

  • Rated 12.1 kW (16 hp) at 3600 rpm using standard 97/68/EC.
  • Tuned to deliver 0 to 24 km/hr (0- to 15-mph) acceleration in 3.5 sec.
  • 45-km/h (28-mph) top speed (EEC homologation limited to 40 km/h [25 mph])
  • Dynamically tuned carburetor for rapid throttle response upon demand while allowing the engine to burn clean under light loads.
  • V-twin, 90-degree overhead valve design maximizes power and torque and provides longer valve life
  • Designed for cold-weather starting (tested to -29o C)
  • Full-pressure lubrication system
  • Spin-on oil filter with drain bracket and oil drain valve enable easy servicing
  • High air-flow air filter
    • Utilizes nano fiber technology to increase the efficiency of the filtration without sacrificing horsepower
  • Laminated and contoured engine blower housing cuts noise levels while reducing oil temperatures
  • T6 heat-treated aluminum alloy connecting rods and piston ring package
  • 200 Watt (16 max A) charging system for accessory capability
  • Exhaust system design
    • Dual header pipe to muffler maximizes airflow and provides a unique V-twin sound
    • Spark-arresting muffler is USFS approved
  • Low fuel consumption and large 18.9-L fuel tank

Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners

To complement the comfortable best-in-class operation station, the XUV is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. This unique suspension set-up provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.

 

The engineering team, in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1, NASCAR, and Indy Car teams, built a capable suspension system for class-leading operator comfort no matter what the terrain, and handling not found. 

Dual A-arm front suspension features include:

  • Dual, wide arch A-arm design provides maximum front-wheel control, precise steering, and maximum ground clearance out to the wheel
  • 229 mm (9 in.) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Adjustable coil over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain
  • Solid anti-roll bar with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tyre contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and upper A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, constant-velocity (CV) shaft, and wheels
  • Automotive-style fully boxed and welded-steel lower A-arms to minimize unsprung mass and maximize strength
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
  • CV shaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot
  • Anti-dive front suspension geometry provides a solid platform for confident braking
  • Optimized steering geometry using ADAMS CAR simulation to minimize effort and maximize terrain feedback

Independent rear suspension features include:

  • 203 mm (8 in.) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Unique, independent rear-suspension design ensures a great ride and protection for the CV shafts
  • Adjustable coil over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tyre contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle, lower A-arm, and upper link to support the high stresses of the shocks, CV shaft, and wheels with the toughness to survive impacts from boulders
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation

A modern front fascia, wide front bumper, sweeping hood lines, and high fender lines complete the styling package:
