The 2015 Kawasaki Teryx4 side x side boasts 4-passenger seating with plenty of power, capability and legendary handling.

The Kawasaki Teryx4™ was designed to provide reliable off-road enjoyment for the whole family. The 2015 edition continues to lead the way with performance, power and handling that sets the benchmark in its class. Now more than ever, the entire family will be able to enjoy the smooth ride and long list of standard features on the Teryx4, making those rugged excursions more fun than ever!

After the 2014 model year’s complete engine and suspension refresh, the 2015 Teryx4 sees all of the top-shelf components continue to provide drivers and passengers with the highest level of performance available. Fox® Podium™ shocks at all four corners give the Teryx4 more trail-taming comfort than ever before, and its cutting-edge Electric Power Steering (EPS) system is proven technology that provides light, low-effort steering for navigating through the most adverse conditions with ease.

POWERTRAIN
The Teryx4 side x side is designed and built with the strength to handle the rigors of four-passenger off-roading. Its 783cc V-twin engine delivers serious torque in the low- to mid-range, just where you need it in a four-seat Side x Side, and with impressive fuel economy, it’s also efficient. The 90-degree V-twin design is revered for its stump-pulling power, distinctive sound and easy-to-harness flexibility, making it the perfect powerplant for a machine like the Teryx4. It’s also super smooth, with perfect primary balance that helps keep things comfortable for the driver and the passengers for the entire drive. It delivers instantaneous and controllable low- and mid-range response partnered with eye-opening hauling ability. In fact, Kawasaki’s engineers purposely gave the big V-twin optimum camshaft profiles and revised exhaust headers to deliver exciting power when ridden solo or with a single passenger, but also provide plenty of torque for carrying more people or heavier loads.

A Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), centrifugal clutch and a three-mode electronic Hi/Low-Range 4WD system that can be selected by rotating a dash-mounted switch to deliver optimum gearing and traction. Teryx4 feeds on technical terrain, thanks to its robust chassis and tight 16.7’ turning radius, which makes maneuvering in tight quarters a cinch.

Routing all that impressive and usable power to the ground is a CVT, centrifugal clutch assembly and an electrically selectable 4WD system that features instant-switch access to 2WD, 4WD and 4WD plus Front Differential Lock modes. The CVT is well known for its quick response and direct engine “feel” in sportier riding situations, where engine power is used to help control the chassis while turning and in rough conditions.

The key to the Teryx4’s tractability is its highly effective centrifugal clutch, which offers an extra degree of slow-speed precision and smoothness, which is ideal for tricky terrain where precise throttle inputs are key. The oil-bathed clutch design also contributes to extended CVT belt life by lessening shock and belt deflection.

The electronic 4WD system allows drivers to easily select between three different drive modes to cover most situations: 2WD (light steering, great handling) for maximum sporty performance, 4WD delivers enhanced traction while keeping steering relatively light, and 4WD with Differential Lock for absolute maximum traction. A dash-mounted selector makes it easy to shift between these modes, and changes occur almost instantaneously, so the driver can concentrate on the fun, without worrying about the drivetrain. So whether it’s climbing a slippery and rocky uphill trail, negotiating a stream or just plain hauling down a wide-open two-track, the Teryx4 has an ideal drivetrain mode to handle it.

ELECTRIC POWER STEERING
It also offers the easiest, lowest-effort and most precise steering characteristics in all of four-wheeling, thanks to Kawasaki’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) system. EPS offers additional damping on straights, especially on rougher surfaces, as well as reduced steering kickback and bump-steer.

The key to the Teryx4’s light-steering performance comes from a Showa-built system that eliminates the traditional power-steering pump so steering inputs won’t put a drain on engine power. The system only works when the engine is running, so there is no battery drain. Input from vehicle speed and torque sensors determine the amount of steering assistance – more during slow-speed use, and less as speeds increase, just like a good sports car.

CHASSIS
The tough foundation of the Teryx4 is the epitome of side x side strength. Its rigid, square-tube steel frame was designed by Kawasaki engineers using detailed computer analysis and loads of off-road testing to create its super-strong Double-X frame design, which features two X-shaped cross members that bridge the frame’s box structures from corner-to-corner for maximum strength and optimum durability. This sturdy frame is significantly reinforced by its certified Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) which extends all the way out to the edges of the bodywork to maximize cockpit space and help shield the chassis and bodywork from damage.

This impressive package is enhanced with a wide-track/wide-body chassis that contributes to superb cornering characteristics. The wide track helps resist body roll during cornering and boosts its ability to cope with rough terrain at speed. The mid-ship engine placement also helps by centralizing the Teryx4’s center of mass to reduce turning inertia and promote easy direction changes.

Large 26″ Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires offer the type of ride comfort, control and traction you’d expect from a first-class side x side like Teryx4. Their construction and tread design helps maximize forward traction while optimizing response for aggressive cornering.

Teryx4’s shorter (compared to other four-seat Side x Sides) 85.7″ wheelbase affords it a surprisingly small 16.7′ turning radius, which makes tight turns an easy affair on trails or in tight spaces. The unit’s substantial 11.1″ of ground clearance helps keep it from bottoming when cresting an obstacle or ridge, while high approach and departure angles (79- and 65-degrees, respectively), reduce the possibility of smacking the front bumper when approaching a steep slope or scraping the tail when exiting one.

SUSPENSION
The Teryx4 independent suspension was already tough to beat, and the 2015 Teryx4 utilizes one of the best names in the high-performance suspension business, Fox. Kawasaki engineers collaborated with Fox to fit the Teryx4 with the ultimate high-performance Side x Side shocks, fully adjustable for spring preload and 24-way compression damping, to tailor the ride to the terrain.

As always, Kawasaki and Fox incorporated a dual-mode design ideology so that the Fox Podium coil-over shocks provide everything from cruising comfort with four passengers aboard to sport-style bump absorption when driven solo or with a single passenger. It’s a difficult combination to get right, but Fox’s high-grade Podium shocks, which feature piggyback reservoirs to help maintain consistent damping, are more than capable of the task.

BRAKING
With all this performance and handling potential, consistent stopping power is a must, and the Teryx4 delivers! High-performance hydraulic discs up front using 200mm rotors gripped by dual-piston calipers offer exceptional feel and stopping power. The brakes are recessed within the wheels, protecting them from dirt, water and debris, while durable steel-braided lines help keep pedal feel crisp and progressive.

In back is Kawasaki’s unique sealed internal wet brake that features internal components that are completely sealed from mud, water, dust and debris, the result being ultra-reliable braking performance. The combination of powerful discs up front and the sealed system in back is ideal, and contributes once again to the Teryx4’s wide-ranging overall performance.

HAULING & TOWING
The Teryx4 side x side also excels at all sorts of tasks, from hauling family to towing. Its sizable 17.9 x 47.6″, 250 lb capacity cargo box is 8.7″ deep, with a flat bottom that is big enough for a large cooler, several spare fuel cans, or other large objects. Four tie-down loops help secure cargo, and the rear wall is shorter in the center, to make it easier to load and remove items. Teryx4 features a standard 2″ hitch receiver, and towing capacity is a substantial 1,300 lb with an optional draw bar.

CONVENIENCE & STYLING
Convenience features include two DC power outlets – one in front, another in back – providing up to 120 watts of peak electrical power, while nearly eight-gallon fuel capacity and impressive fuel economy offer substantial range, enough for a long day on the job or trail. There’s also a conveniently located beverage holder for each of the four seats.

Those powerful and purposeful good looks start with a high-strength steel front guard and an aggressive looking hood that opens for ease of maintenance. The headlamp and fender design gives the Teryx4 a no-nonsense look that says “sporty” and “functional” in the same breath. Accessing the front suspension, coolant reservoir, air filter and electrical equipment is easy, thanks to an easy-open front hood, which is part of a tough, rugged looking body package.

Unlike some competitors, Teryx4 features secure latching doors that are easy to use, look good, and offer a level of mud protection. Scratch-resistant bodywork and textured paint on the sturdy front guard and ROPS cage help keep the Teryx4 looking sharp for a good long time.

INTERIOR AMENITIES
Passengers will enjoy riding in the Teryx4 during a long day, because it’s the most comfortable side x side in its class, by far. Its roomy interior gives the driver and passengers ample room to spread-out, with plenty of hip, shoulder and legroom.

This tough side x side’s high-backed bucket seats feature high-quality cushioning and cold-resistant seat material provide all-day plushness. When the going gets rough, the Teryx4’s three-point seatbelts offer a high degree of security to keep the driver and passengers in place. The adjustable front seats offer three positions in one-inch increments, while the rear seats are mounted slightly higher than those in front. Stadium-style seating provides rear seat passengers a better view forward. Handholds integrated into the frame give passengers extra security, while shock absorbing comfort mounts and an anti-cinch feature on the seatbelts helps prevent over-tightening when the belts lock during sudden deceleration (or when the tilt sensor is activated).

Instrumentation is top-notch, and includes a multi-function electronic display that provides a ton of useful information: speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer and hour meter, clock, dual trip meters, 2WD/4WD indicator, front differential indicator light, parking brake indicator, water temp and fuel injection warning indicators, reverse indicator light, etc. – everything you need to know.

Strength. Power. Comfort. Convenience. Hauling and towing ability. Reliability. Four seats. The Teryx model line has always been a pinnacle of off-road fun and function, and the 2015 Teryx4 represents the best of the best in Kawasaki Teryx performance, reliability and comfort.
