ATV.com cited the innovative Trans Cab™ transformable cab feature, new drivetrain, impressive towing and hauling capacities, along with its interior amenities as key innovations that push the 2015 Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT to the top of the utility Side X Side category.

MULE PRO-FXT features a completely new chassis, engine and selectable four-wheel drive system, all of which complement the PRO-FXT’s exclusive Trans Cab configurable passenger seating system. Trans Cab, known for its versatility, is easily transformed between three- and six-passenger modes in under one minute with one person and one trip around the vehicle. Buyers can carry up to three or six people with this system, with the three-passenger mode giving extra space in the steel cargo bed.

Ranchers, farmers, utility workers and the media have all praised the new MULE model since its June 2014 debut and now ATV.com has backed it up with a coveted industry award in the Utility UTV category.

“Kawasaki conceived the MULE PRO-FXT with the notion that they wanted to produce the best and most versatile UTV money could buy,” says Kevin Allen, Kawasaki Manager of Public Relations and Brand Experience. “Kawasaki believes the new MULE accomplishes that goal for the agriculture, hunting and industrial segments of the industry; a belief that ATV.com has verified with a coveted award that we are extremely thankful to receive.”

MULE PRO-FXT is backed by the unrivaled engineering knowledge of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. and the industry-leading Kawasaki STRONG Three-Year Limited Warranty.
