The new Kawasaki Side x Side is capable and comfortable, ready for adventure or your toughest jobs

The all-new “King of Mules” is the 2015 Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT™. This
highly capable unit mixes Side x Side versatility with class-leading
torque, making it the fastest and most powerful MULE ever. It also has
new configurable Trans Cab seating for three or six passengers and a
standard Kawasaki STRONG three-year warranty, along with more comfort
and convenience features than ever before.

The Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT is a leader in torque with a new 812cc,
three-cylinder engine that produces a stump-pulling 48 ft-lb(2) and is
mated to a specially tuned Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). In
addition, the MULE PRO-FXT has a short overall length and wheelbase,
making it more maneuverable than the competition. This new chassis
delivers a tight turning radius, large bed capacity and outstanding
towing ability. With its roomy interior and Roll Over Protective
Structure (ROPS), the MULE PRO-FXT will keep passengers secure and
comfortable on the farm, worksite or trail.

The MULE PRO-FXT is the first to lead the charge as Kawasaki continues
to develop its existing and future models in the Side x Side market and
grow its US manufacturing plant in Lincoln, Nebraska. The company is
also celebrating 40 years of history and the very first Side x Side on
the market. These latest developments ensure the MULE continues to be
Kawasaki STRONG and recognized as the market leader.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The strength of the Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT starts with 48 ft-lb(2) of
torque from its new 812cc, three-cylinder engine that has been tuned to
deliver optimum performance throughout the rev range. What’s more, this
is the most powerful and fastest MULE ever!

Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) helps ensure the motor receives crisp and
clean fuel delivery from its large 7.9-gallon fuel tank. This gives the
new MULE PRO-FXT extended range for all-day adventures or a full day at
work.

Transferring the engine’s performance to the ground is a specially tuned
CVT transmission that was designed for the impressive 48 ft-lb(2) of
torque and also provides natural engine braking to help when descending
slopes. It delivers the low-range pulling power Side x Side owners
expect.

The new CVT is combined with an electrically selectable 2WD/4WD system
that has a dual-mode rear differential. Convenient dash-mounted switches
allow the driver to instantly engage the systems giving full control
over the 4WD and the locking rear differential.

The dual mode on the differential allows it to be fully locked for
maximum traction, but it will minimize its impact on the terrain when
unlocked.

Equipped with this system, your work can be completed quickly and
efficiently, no matter the type of terrain or type of job you tackle.

CHASSIS
This strength and versatility could only be put to use by a vehicle with
the handling and maneuverability to match. The MULE PRO-FXT delivers in
all the key areas with a shorter overall length (133.3″) and wheelbase
(92.3″) when compared to the competition.

The EPS, EPS LE and EPS CAMO models of the MULE PRO-FXT Side x Side take
full advantage of speed-sensitive Electric Power Steering (EPS), which
helps the driver enjoy a tight turning radius of just 16ft. In addition,
less steering effort is felt whether you are creeping along or
throttling down the trail.

Extra ground clearance (10.2″) gives the driver confidence that the
lower chassis will clear rocks and large obstacles, while the EPS has
been calibrated to reduce kickback when traversing rough terrain.

The front and rear independent suspension travel is a generous 8.7″
(left rear is 8.5″) thanks, in part, to the twin-tube,
preload-adjustable shocks found at each corner.

The MULE’s durable A-arm design utilizes large diameter tubing, with
rubber bushings at the attachment points. This helps to further isolate
some of the steering kickback while providing fewer parts to wear out.
As a result, the Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT will outlast and outperform the
competition, just as the rest of the MULE lineup has consistently done
over the years.

It also exploits the Roll Over Protective Structure that increases the
stiffness of the entire chassis, giving the driver superior handling and
driving characteristics, while also ensuring long-lasting durability
and occupant security.

INTERIOR
The new comfort and convenience features of the MULE PRO-FXT give the
interior a premium feel. The cockpit was designed for drivers who need
to travel efficiently with passengers, along with all their necessary
gear and accessories. Owners will appreciate the thoughtful design,
which is apparent as soon as you sit on the new front and rear bench
seats that each seat three people and provide plenty of comfort for all
the occupants. The seating also allows the passengers to easily move
around the spacious cabin.

All passengers are secured in the MULE PRO-FXT side x side by
three-point harnesses and four automotive-style doors as standard. These
increase protection for the occupants both in terms of safety and from
the outdoor elements. The doors are also far easier to use than nets,
making the occupants’ experience significantly more enjoyable with the
MULE PRO-FXT.

For the driver’s convenience there is a tilt-adjustable (except Non-EPS
models), thick grip steering wheel, which provides up to 40-degrees of
adjustment. Or it can be tilted out of the way to facilitate access to
the cabin. All passengers have secure handholds throughout.

Occupants will appreciate the new storage space under the front seat.
This space allows users to store their equipment and gear in the
optional Kawasaki Genuine Accessories bins. In addition, there is a
handy glovebox as well as three dashboard pockets – with the center
pocket large enough to accommodate the Kawasaki Genuine Accessories
audio system – and two cupholders built into the bodywork in front of
the dashboard.

The final interior feature is an all-new multi-function LCD instrument
cluster. It provides a large, intuitive, easy-to-read display that
includes an array of information from speedometer, odometer and hour
meter to fuel gauge, dual trip meters, 2WD/4WD indicators, clock and
much more to keep the driver fully informed at a glance.

TRANS CAB FEATURE
One of the standout features of the new Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT has to be
its new Trans Cab seating arrangement. It is a 1:1:1 system that allows
one person to convert the seating with one trip around the vehicle in
less than one minute. In fact, one person can easily convert the
comfortable three-passenger machine into a spacious six-passenger
workhorse quickly and without tools.

To convert from 6-passenger to 3-passenger mode, you simply unlatch the
rear seat and fold it away, slide the cargo wall forward, lower the
cargo wall struts and re-attach the seat latches.

With this Trans Cab feature, the cargo bed length is easily increased
from 22″ in the six-passenger configuration, to a whopping 42.7″ in the
three-passenger layout. That’s significantly more storage space and a
greater cargo load capacity for the times when it is more important to
haul equipment than your closest friends.

Of course, the width of the steel bed does not change in either
configuration. It measures a cavernous 53.7″, which should accommodate
everything from the largest loads to items like hay bales. And,
furthermore, there are integrated steel cargo bed rails and plenty of
Kawasaki Genuine Accessories to ensure your load is firmly secured. So
whether you’re on the work site and need extra cargo capacity, or
heading to the campsite with five friends and family, the flexible
seating and storage options of the Trans Cab on the MULE PRO-FXT means
you will get the job done, no matter what the day brings.

The Trans Cab system further reinforces the versatility of the MULE
PRO-FXT, confirming it is the most practical vehicle in its class.

POWER GENERATION
Passengers can power their accessories during all-day adventures thanks
to a multitude of built-in 12-volt outlets. These are powered by the
high-output alternator, which delivers an incredible 60.8 amps at
2,000rpm (with the headlights on).

Each passenger can take advantage of the additional outlets to power
everything from phones and tablets to GPS devices and other technology
you can’t be without.

All MULE PRO-FXT models include two 12V power outlets up front that will
supply up to 120 watts, while the LE and CAMO models provide an
additional two outlets in the rear of the vehicle. This should give
occupants the opportunity to charge their favorite devices.

The same high-power alternator is also responsible for providing
excellent visibility after dark and in poor weather conditions by
powering the Hi/Low halogen headlights that come as standard equipment
to match the performance of the “King of Mules.” Additionally, the LE
and CAMO models in the MULE PRO-FXT range get high-intensity, auxiliary
LED headlights for even greater illumination (available as accessories
on other models).

LED lights are specified on most high-end machinery for their extremely
bright output, although Kawasaki’s engineers were also interested in the
extended durability and low current draw that LEDs offer. So for the
brand new MULE PRO-FXT, it was only natural that top-of-the-line LED
products would be used for this top-of-the-line application.

MULE: A WORK HORSE
With a maximum load capacity of 1000 lb (in three-passenger mode, where
permissible according to state law), the ultra-durable steel cargo bed
on the MULE PRO-FXT can accommodate all your equipment, personal gear
and essential items. The tilt bed features a hydraulic assist and
incorporates integrated steel cargo bed rails to allow tie-downs and
genuine Kawasaki-specific accessories to be quickly deployed.
Furthermore, integrated cargo dividers mean you can quickly separate
your tools and personal gear.

Enhancing the carrying capacity of the MULE PRO-FXT is an integrated 2″
hitch receiver. When equipped with an optional draw bar, it is able to
tow a substantial 2000 lb load (where permissible according to state
law) with the pickup truck-style receiver, giving the new Kawasaki the
ultimate crossover capability.

In order to successfully haul such large loads, hydraulic disc brakes
use 212mm rotors on all four corners. They combine with a dependable
engine braking system to produce effective stopping power anytime,
anywhere.

Dual-piston calipers in the front, and single-piston calipers in the
rear, give the driver strong yet progressive stopping power. An
integrated mechanical rear parking brake was also included. Utilizing
the braking system, it keeps the MULE PRO-FXT securely in place when
stopped.

ONE MULE, FOUR MODELS
The MULE PRO-FXT comes in four models, each one packed with a host of Kawasaki STRONG features.

The Non-EPS model comes standard with steel wheels and two DC outlets in the cab. It is available in the Super Black finish.

The second variation in the PRO-FXT lineup is the EPS model. This comes
standard with the same amenities as the Non-EPS but with the addition of
Electric Power Steering (EPS) and a tilt steering wheel. This model is
available in Timberline Green and Super Black with a contrasting graphic
along the doors and cargo bed.

Next in the range is the desirable EPS LE. This variation comes standard
with a host of additional upgrades over the EPS model, including LED
headlights, aluminum wheels, a composite sun top and two additional DC
outlets for rear-seat passengers. Color options are Timberline Green and
Dark Royal Red with a contrasting graphic along the doors and cargo
bed.

Last, but certainly not least, the MULE PRO-FXT is available with
Realtree Xtra® Green Camo, which gives the avid hunter the ultimate
color scheme for any adventure. The Camo model includes EPS and tilt
steering function. In addition, LED headlights and four DC outlets round
out the Camo package.

ACCESSORIES
Owners of the new Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT will enjoy the opportunity to
accessorize, colorize, and specialize the vehicle to accentuate their
individual style.

Owners wishing to accessorize their vehicle can take advantage of more
than 60 Kawasaki Genuine Accessories, including three special packages
that will be available for the MULE PRO-FXT. Owners might like to obtain
a Kawasaki-certified WARN® winch package, for example. Or you could opt
for a WARN® ProVantage™ Plow System to tackle winter storms. In that
case, you might also choose to provide extra protection for the vehicle,
equipping it with both skid plates and brush guards.

To protect the occupants from the elements, Kawasaki offers everything
from hard and soft roofs, to full and half windshields as well as hard
or soft cabin enclosures and doors. And all these Kawasaki Genuine
Accessories were developed alongside the vehicle, for the perfect
installation, fit and finish.

MULE PRO-FXT owners can also choose from accessories such as a half
windshield, audio system, heater, bed extender, cargo divider, dual
battery kit and so much more.

As an added bonus, the industry-leading Kawasaki STRONG Three-Year
Warranty remains intact after the purchase and installation of any of
these accessories, which were all developed and tested along with the
machine itself.

Consumers interested to see how their new MULE PRO-FXT will look with
Kawasaki Genuine Accessories in place will now be able to build their
vehicle online, adding their favorite accessories and seeing them in
place. They then have the opportunity to print their custom build list
and take it to their local Kawasaki dealer to purchase the exact vehicle
specification they designed.
