The Textron family of brands — including Cessna, Bell Helicopters and more —builds advanced machines for the boldest adventurers and hardest workers. At Textron Off Road, we make the family proud with American-made side-by-sides and ATVs that are built with the Textron legacy of power, performance and precision engineering.
Textron Off Road started in 2003, in Natchez, Miss. They built all-electric and hybrid gas/electric 4WD vehicles under the name Bad Boy®, and gained a reputation among serious hunters for stealth, off-road performance.
In 2010, the family changed. Textron Off-Road became part of Textron Inc., a Fortune 500 company known worldwide for its powerful brands that serve this nation’s military and its boldest adventurers. The power, performance and precision that go into Bell® helicopters, Cessna® aircraft and more were now part of our story, and the key to our future.
In 2016, Textron Off-Road introduced their first all-gas vehicle, the revolutionary 80HP Stampede™ side-by-side. It came off the line and changed the landscape. Huge power. Untouchable performance. And a renewal of our purpose: to fuel the independent outdoorsman with a superior vehicle.
Textron Off Road grew like never before in 2017 when Arctic Cat’s renowned line of ATVs and side-by-sides became part of Textron Off Road.
Textron Off Road was the only UTV manufacturer at the 2017 SEMA Show, and they made sure everyone knew they were serious about the future.
After spending the rest of 2017 organizing and gearing up, Textron Off Road is ready to release the new 2018 Textron Off Road Havoc X, and then the much anticipated 2018 Textron Off Road Wildcat XX. We believe that this is just the start for them, so buckle up because it is about to get really interesting in the UTV market!
