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.

Admiral Transmission
with APS

The ODG 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 AirLock Steel Rims

Aurora models have 25” XT-117 tires on premium 9" AirLock 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.

Split Seats

The Aurora Responder 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.

Stretcher Mount

The Aurora Responder Series 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.

Amphibious Body

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.

WINCH AND BRUSHGUARD

Pulling power for when you need it most. The 3,500-lb winch mounts on the front of your ARGO brushguard to assist with high-angle extractions of equipment or debris.
