What Is a John Deere Gator and What Are the Types?

November 15, 2016

A John Deere Gator™ is a utility vehicle that is designed to help property owners haul material and travel across terrain ranging from smooth, to very rough. Deere’s current offerings all feature a cargo box in the rear for storage. The number of wheels on the Gators ranges from 4 to 6, and depending on the model, they can host up to four occupants.

John Deere Gator

John Deere currently offers four different series of Gators, including:

  • High-Performance Utility Vehicles
  • Crossover Utility Vehicles
  • Traditional Utility Vehicles
  • Military Utility Vehicles

High-Performance Utility Vehicles

Produced in Deere’s Horicon, Wisconsin factory, these models are both fast and powerful. While offering higher speeds and performance capabilities, they also adhere to Deere’s quality, safety, and durability standards.

Crossover Utility Vehicles

This Gator family is made up of full-size XUVs and mid-size XUVs. The full-size models are engineered to handle large payloads with powerful engines. The mid-size models can now travel at speeds exceeding more than 45 mph and offer enough grit to tackle a variety of projects around the property. Each model in this family can be used for working, hunting, fishing, camping, and more.

Traditional Utility Vehicles

Deere’s Traditional Utility Vehicles are worksite-ready. These models can haul up to 1,000 pounds of cargo and have enough strength to drive over rocks, mud, or other unfavorable conditions. This lineup is where buyers will find low center of gravity models that provide added stability while remaining light on the surface being worked on.

Military Utility Vehicles

John Deere offers a family of Gators that are ready for deployment. From taking on hills to hauling supplies, these SAE and OSHA ROPS-certified models are ready to take on varying conditions.
