Features & Benefits
Unique features

  • SUV styling features flowing fenders with integrated headlights and taillights for a rugged, adventurous look.
  • New dual front disc brake calipers feature a patented built in scraper system to remove mud and snow from inside the front wheel to help prevent build-up of debris between caliper and rim to ensure consistent braking performance.
  • Brake pads feature thick long wear material with improved mud durability, feel and control. Pads feature internal scraper that gives audible warning when pad life is low.
  • Patented new oil cooling system features dual oil coolers for greater cooling capacity.
  • New Blue color joins Red and Olive.

Engine/Drivetrain

The second cooler is mounted higher in a protected position under the front fender away from mud and debris and is fed a cool supply of air through a front fender duct. Oil is first routed to the lower cooler then to the second high mounted cooler before returning to the engine.
