WHEN THE WORLD DOESN’T PLAY NICE.
Trouble doesn’t contain itself to convenient locations. That’s why we’re proud to put the might of ARGO go-anywhere engineering behind the Aurora 850 Responder 8x8 XTV. These amphibious rescue machines are designed to get assistance to some of the world’s most challenging terrains.
The Aurora 850 Responder comes with our reliable and strong VX 850 V-Twin engine, providing power with purpose. They also feature big 25" tires and enough seating for all the helping hands required. And we equipped them with stretcher mounts so you can be fully prepared. When the world gets nasty and trouble comes calling, answer with ARGO.

LX 850 Engine
All-new ODG 850 V-Twin Fan Cooled engine is specifically designed with advanced technology and created to deliver optimal performance, power and torque when you need it, while providing smoother, quieter and easier starting operation. Available on Aurora Series.
Instant Torque Clutch (ITC)
The ARGO Instant Torque Drive System (ITDS) dramatically improves low-end torque and increases acceleration. The Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) is designed to provide the optimal gear ratio, shifting seamlessly throughout the full range to utilize the massive torque and power of our engines.
ARGO Progressive Steering (APS)
The ARGO Admiral transmission with ARGO Progressive Steering (APS) is an innovation in braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system, we have achieved a progressive dual-rate steering system.
This development, combined with the Admiral transmission, is a technological milestone that gives the ultimate driver experience. Steering events are effortless and confidence-inspiring, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. An ARGO is as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
ARGO Progressive Steering (APS)
APS is an innovation in the area of braking force application to the transmission steering differential. By adding a spring element between the handlebars and the brake system we achieved a progressive, dual-rate steering system. Steering events are now effortless with an increase of 4X wider range of steering motion, offering the smoothest turning available in an ARGO XTV. APS makes it as fun and comfortable to drive as any UTV.
25" Tires on Beadlock Steel Rims
Aurora models have 25” XT117 tires on premium 9" Beadlock steel rims. The chevron treads maximize your power in thick mud and increase your propulsion in whatever waterway you decide to drive in.
Reduced Underhood Temperature
To ensure comfort for the operator and passengers, heat-reflective and absorptive material is integrated into the firewall. A composite exhaust shroud goes one step further and effectively redirects heat while producing a subtle note from the exhaust.
The Aurora SAR delivers hope in the face of life and death situations to save lives in challenging and remote locations. These brave warriors are equipped with split seats to provide flexible passenger seating arrangements for any rescue mission. Be safe out there.
The Aurora SAR is designed for reliable off-road search and rescue. Equipped for emergencies, a EMS stretcher mount is installed onto the Aurora Responder to allow crew members to rear-load stretchers. Head out brave and come home safe.
Yes, this XTV floats. The one-piece amphibious lower body is the signature ARGO design feature. Its smooth, durable underbody floats over potential snags, stumps and outcrops, as well as swamps and water.
HEAVY-DUTY WINCH AND BRUSHGUARD
Pulling power for when you need it most. The 3,500-lb heady-duty winch with synthetic rope mounts on the front of your ARGO brushguard to assist with high-angle extractions of equipment or debris.
