John Deere has updated its Gator series of utility vehicles with an eye on improved performance. The Gator TX features an extra 19 hp, 90% more torque, quicker acceleration and a new coil-over-shock suspension system. The electric model, the Gator TE, operates for a full day with one overnight charge. It will haul 900 lbs.

The Gator TH, TX and TE are now equipped with a metal and composite cargo box with a pickup-style tailgate and latch. The sides can be removed for a flat bed. Plus, the box now offers 20 tie-downs to keep cargo from shifting.

Prices for the Gator T models start at $6,499. For more information, contact your local John Deere dealer, or visit www.deere.com.
