2018 Full-Size Gator Crossover Utility Vehicles XUV835M XUV865M

John Deere Gator


The new XUV835 Gas and XUV865 Diesel Gator Utility Vehicles offer the ultimate experience in power, comfort, and conveniences. Highlights include:

  • Models are available in E-, M-, and R-trim levels, similar to John Deere tractors, which allows operators to match the right specifications and price to best meet their needs.
  • The factory-installed cab on the R-spec model has heating and air conditioning, room for three passengers, dash-mounted controls, tilt steering, and a fully-adjustable operator’s seat. It is also the quietest cab in the Gator utility-vehicle lineup – quiet enough to have conversations at a more comfortable volume.
  • Factory-installed wiring on M- and R-trim levels gives an opportunity to customize with more attachments and accessories.
  • Plenty of enclosed storage helps keep items protected from the elements and ready to use when they are needed.

This trim level has the most options, such as heating and air conditioning, as well as an open operator station or cab. Roofs will be included with the priority replenishment (PR) configurations.
