With a name like “Bearcat,” the Arctic Cat Bearcat series should be taken seriously. Versatility and simplicity are the hallmarks of the 2014 Arctic Cat Bearcat 570 XT. It has a fan-cooled engine rated at about 60 hp, a large 17-gallon fuel tank and articulating rear suspension for improved maneuverability — especially when driving in reverse. An extra-wide track keeps the snowmobile afloat and tall lugs dig deep when riding off the beaten path. Color options are blue or orange.
