Powerful diesel engine delivers superb starting, idling, and throttle response

XUV855D engine XUV855D engine
Remote intake and restriction indicator Remote intake and restriction indicator

The machine is powered by an 854-cu cm (0.854-L), three-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-cycle diesel engine. It produces 5.1 kgm of torque (36.9 lb-ft) at 2400 rpm.

 

The advanced engine delivers superb starting, idling, and throttle response during operation. With minimal noise vibration and harshness (NVH), the 855D is the smoothest and quietest running diesel in its class.

 

The engine offers the following performance and reliability features:

  • Indirect injection diesel with glow plugs ensures fast starts in cold temperatures
  • 22.5 hp* at 2400 rpm
  • Overhead valve design for greater efficiency and fuel economy
  • Spin-on oil filter for easy servicing
  • Quiet operation through the entire rpm range
    • Molybdenum-coated pistons
    • High-stiffness cylinder block and gearcase
  • High-flow water pump and optimized water jackets maintain a steady operating temperature and eliminate hot spots
  • Full-pressure lubrication system
  • In-line mechanical fuel pump
  • Five-point, rubber isolated for quiet operation and minimal vibration
  • Dry replaceable dual-element air cleaner with remote intake and a restriction indicator
  • See-through coolant recovery tank permits the operator to check the coolant level without removing the radiator cap
    • Sealed radiator compartment keeps trash and debris on the outside of the grille

#

To complement the most capable frame available in a high-performance utility vehicle, the XUV is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension.

 

A dual A-arm front and rear suspension provides a smooth ride over challenging terrain and excellent hauling characteristics.

 

The entire suspension system has been optimized to handle no cargo to maximum cargo without compromising ride quality or vehicle stability.

Dual A-arm front suspension features include:
  • 203.2 mm (8 in.) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • 17.5-mm (0.6875-in.) solid anti-roll bar with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots for minimal vehicle body roll and quiet operation
  • Heavy-duty nodular cast-iron knuckles to support the strut, constant-velocity (CV) shaft, and wheel
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
  • CV shaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot

Dual A-arm independent rear suspension features include:

  • Unequal length, dual A-arm construction for superior wheel control and travel
  • 228.6 mm (9 in.) of total travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction, excellent ride quality, and vehicle control
  • Coil over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain
  • A-arms made from square/rectangular tubing reduce weight while remaining rigid
  • Heavy-duty nodular cast-iron uprights support wheel loads with a double row of ball bearings
  • CV driveshaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot
  • Rear sway bar for lateral stability

Superior terrain capability

The Gator™ XUV Crossover Series Utility Vehicle has a precision-engineered drivetrain system that fully utilizes engine power, optimizing acceleration, hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities. Power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to the transaxle.

 

Key elements of the drive system include:

Variable-speed drive
Variable-speed drive Variable-speed drive

The variable-speed drive consists of two clutches and a drive belt:

  • Drive clutch is attached to the engine.
  • Driven clutch is attached to the transaxle.

 

Features include:

  • The engine braking system utilizes a tight belt for operation, requiring an idler sleeve on the primary clutch for neutral. The secondary clutch is a new build-on-shaft design that utilizes a cam to tune the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle. The clutch will stay engaged, providing deceleration until approximately (5 km/h) 3 mph.
  • The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT™) air intake draws in 50 percent more air vs. previous designs to reduce heat and the amount of water ingestion into the CVT system. The system will reduce belt slipping and improve durability.
  • A low- and high-speed forward gear offering:
    • Low range is 0 km/h to 27 km/h (0 mph to 17 mph), 625i
    • Low range is 0 km/h to 43 km/h (0 mph to 27 mph), 825i and 825i S4
    • Low range is 0 km/h to 24 km/h (0 mph to 15 mph), 855D and 855D S4
    • High range is 0 km/h to 40 km/h (0 mph to 25 mph), 625i
    • High range is 0 km/h to 71 km/h (0 mph to 44 mph), 825i and 825i S4
    • High range is 0 km/h to 51 km/h (0 mph to 32 mph), 855D and 855D S4 
  • Ability to creep along slowly to maneuver in tight spaces
  • Standard full clutch enclosure with high speed fan provides longer belt and clutch life
  • High-ratio clutches with three cam weights for maximum belt clamp load in high torque conditions
  • Powertrain reduction ratios:
    • The complete reduction ratios range for high gear is (8.6:1 at top speed and 42:1 at initial clutch engagement. This varies between the three vehicles listed above.
    • The complete reduction ratios range for low gear is (17.9:1 at top speed and 86.8:1 at initial clutch engagement. This varies between the vehicles listed above.

 

NOTE: Delivery and torque to the ground depends on tire size which is a function of nominal size and pressure.

 

How the variable-speed drive works:

 

  1. As engine speed increases, the spring-loaded drive clutch is closed by weights being forced out by centrifugal force.
  2. As the drive clutch closes, the belt rides up to the largest diameter of the drive clutch and forces open the driven clutch.
  3. With the belt running in the smallest diameter of the driven clutch, the speed being transferred to the transaxle is increased.
  4. The driven clutch is designed to sense varying loads (inclines, mud, etc.) and constantly adjusts drive speed upward or downward so that engine rpm remains optimal.

Operator interface

  • On-demand true four-wheel drive (4WD) system with an auto-locking front differential and dash-mounted electronic rocker switch is best in class; when the rocker switch is in the on (4WD) position, the front differential will automatically lock for extra traction when needed, but when the rocker switch is in the off two-wheel drive (2WD) position, the vehicle will remain in 2WD
