Outdoor enthusiasts and professionals are invited to test drive the full range of John Deere Gator utility vehicles, says the manufacturer.
Around 50 John Deere dealers across the UK and Ireland will be hosting a series of Gator experience days during April, with some additional dates in March and May. Potential customers will be invited to one-day events where they will not only be able to put the latest Gator models to the test in challenging off-road conditions, but also learn about John Deere parts availability, financing and PowerGard warranty extensions.
A special 0% finance offer will be available for customers who buy a Gator within 14 days of attending their local event.
The Gator Experience Days are aimed at all potential utility vehicle customers including farmers and landowners, gamekeepers, landscapers, contractors, local authorities, commercial amenity and property managers, and turf and groundscare professionals.
John Deere claims to offer the broadest range of utility vehicles in the industry, with 11 models to choose from altogether, from the compact CX Gator up to the new XUV 855D Gator with power steering. The XUV cross-over models feature true on-demand 4wd and independent suspension on all four wheels for excellent performance and driving comfort, both on and off road, says the company.
New vehicles available for test drive will include the 854cc XUV 855D Gator, the fastest and most powerful diesel utility vehicle in the John Deere line-up, with a top speed of 52kph (32mph), as well as the recently introduced mid-duty XUV 550 and XUV 550 S4 cross-over vehicles. These two petrol models offer customers the choice of a two- or four-passenger vehicle, and are the perfect fit for both work and recreation.
The rest of the John Deere Gator range includes electric, petrol and diesel models with 2- and 4wd, designed to provide the right machine for any application.
A dedicated website where customers can register www.JohnDeere.com/testdrivers has been specially created, and contains information about dates and locations for the various events that will be taking place.
