Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners

XUV front suspension detailXUV front suspension detail

To complement the comfortable operation station, the XUV560 and XUV590i is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. This unique suspension set-up provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.


The engineering team, in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1®, NASCAR®, and INDYCAR® teams, built a capable suspension system for class-leading operator comfort no matter what the terrain.

  • Dual, wide arch A-arm design provides maximum front-wheel control, precise steering, and maximum ground clearance out to the wheel
  • 8 in. (203 mm) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Adjustable coil over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain
  • Solid anti-roll bar with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and upper A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, constant-velocity (CV) shaft, and wheels
  • Automotive-style fully boxed and welded high strength steel lower A-arms to minimize unsprung mass and maximize strength
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
  • CV shaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot
  • Anti-dive front suspension geometry provides a solid platform for confident braking
  • Optimized steering geometry using ADAMS CAR simulation to minimize steering effort and maximize terrain feedback

  • 8 in. (203 mm) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Unique, independent rear-suspension design ensures a great ride and protection for the CV shafts

  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle, lower A-arm, and upper link to support the high stresses of the shocks, CV shaft, and wheels with the toughness to survive impacts from boulders

Optional power steering for excellent handling characteristics and low steering effort

XUV590i  with optional power steeringXUV590i with optional power steering

The Gator™ XUV590i and XUV590i S4 Utility Vehicles are equipped with rack and pinion steering with optional power steering. These automotive-type systems exhibit excellent handling characteristics, as well as responsive steering and low steering effort.


Optional electronic power steering assist system (EPAS). Features of EPAS include:

  • Anti-kickback feature reduces the amount of steering unwinding when traversing difficult terrain.
  • The system is speed sensing and adjusts steering effort as the speed of the vehicle changes.
    • As speed increases there is less steering assist for improved road feel.
    • As speed decreases steering assist increases to give lower steering efforts for improved maneuverability.
  • A warning/functional light on the instrument panel provides self-diagnostics and a warning light in the situation of no assist.
  • Torque sensor measures steering wheel input so the on-board computer can provide the appropriate output for various driving situations.
    • Steel ball-bearings secure the steering shaft and delivers smooth, responsive operation
    • Tight turn radius of 12.3 ft (3.7 m) for excellent maneuverability
    • Completely sealed rack-and-pinion for long life
    • Low steering ratio (lock-to-lock steering wheel rotations) provides more responsive steering and less operator input
    • Shaft U-joints are phased for a smooth, uninterrupted motion of the steering wheel
    • Ackerman steering design provides more responsive steering, decreases tire wear when used on hard surfaces and is turf friendly (see description below)
    • Minimal bump steer eliminates unintended vehicle direction changes when traversing terrain and permits less feedback to the steering wheel (see description below)


The tire scrubbing, which also creates unwanted heat and wear in the tire, can be eliminated by turning the inside wheel at a greater angle than the outside one (Ackerman steering).


Note: Some competitors use parallel steering instead of Ackerman steering.


Bump steering defines the change in the forward steering angle (thus wheel position) as the suspension travels through its full motion. A large amount of angular change (5 degrees to 7 degrees) will alter the vehicle's direction and excessively move the steering wheel.

Large, extra-durable, one-piece cargo box ensures hard-driving performance and longevity

Cargo box Cargo box
Cargo box, tailgate downCargo box, tailgate down

The cargo box consists of a high-density polyethylene copolymer composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise. This large, one-piece design has rounded inside corners to ensure material removal when tilted. The composite box is highly ribbed and supported with a welded, steel-ladder structure to ensure hard-driving performance and longevity. The three highly styled exterior pieces are made of TPO for extra durability.

Removable lanyardsRemovable lanyards

The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. It features truck-like performance and can be operated with one hand.


The tailgate’s pivot point is made of hardened steel for durability and designed for tool-free removal. The standard lanyards can also be disconnected without tools to remove the tailgate for convenient loading and unloading tasks.

Tilted cargo boxTilted cargo box

The cargo box ease of use is critical to performing tasks quickly and efficiently. Starting with the truck-style tailgate, the removal of content in this cargo box could not be easier. The manual release functions as the lift lever as well, done in a smooth, one-step motion. It can even be tilted from both sides of the vehicle. To reduce the overall effort of lift, the pivot point of the cargo box is closer to the center. The combination of easy to use attributes makes this cargo box best-in-class.


For servicing the vehicle’s systems, the cargo box is easily removable. With the removal of two bolts, the cargo box can easily be detached from the vehicle frame.
