John Deere Launches Gator™ XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 Utility Vehicles

Integrated precision ag technology and new cargo box help farmers improve productivity

OLATHE, Kansas (July 2, 2024) — John Deere (NYSE: DE) announced today the launch of the new gas Gator™ XUV 845 and diesel Gator XUV 875 utility vehicles designed to assist farmers and ranchers improve productivity by helping with a variety of jobs around the farm. The new Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 utility vehicles offer options for integrated precision ag technology, a larger, more versatile cargo box, and added comfort and convenience elements.

"The Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 are built with farmers for farmers," said Eric Halfman, John Deere go-to-market manager for Gator utility vehicles. "We worked with farmers across the U.S. and Canada to make this machine more versatile for all the work they do on the farm."

Standard of Reliability

The Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 utility vehicles improve upon the reliability of previous models that have made them essential pieces of equipment for the farm. The new models have a noticeably improved sound quality due to a new exhaust system, providing a more pleasant ride.

Other improvements on the Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 include a new location for the air intake, raising it by 12 inches, drawing air from the best location to protect the engine. In addition, there is a new CVT air intake and exhaust to help pull cleaner air and protect the system from debris, water and mud.

Precision Ag Ready

With the new Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 utility vehicle HVAC models, each can be customized to include a factory-installed GreenStar™ Ready option, giving owners the ability to quickly add a StarFire® receiver and universal display to the machine. All of the needed brackets and wiring to support the installation of the receiver and the display are included from the factory. The JDLink® modem will also be included, enabling the Gator to be integrated into the John Deere Operations Center™. Farmers will find this makes it easier to accomplish tasks around the farm such as boundary mapping. With the JDLink modem, data is wirelessly sent to the John Deere Operations Center or to the cab of the machine.

"This technology package gives farmers a plug-and-play solution for adding precision ag components to the Gator," Halfman said. "The Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 make tasks such as boundary and field mapping, tile mapping and other similar tasks easier to complete with a smaller, more nimble machine at a lower operating cost."

A new bracket for the integrated technology offers more control and less effort for the operator. An added switch bank features switches for the AutoTrac™ resume, ISO implement connector on/off and display on/off. The new on/off switches provide more control of implements such as sprayers and displays.

"For customers adopting autonomy on their farms, they will need to create autonomy boundaries," Halfman said. "Remapping of existing boundaries may have to take place and the integrated precision ag technology features on the Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 make either a go-to machine for farmers."

Versatility in Overdrive

"One of the most desirable traits of a Gator is the versatility it offers all over the farm," Halfman said. "The new Gator XUV 845 and Gator XUV 875 include a redesigned cargo box that provides 13% more space than our previous model, making it a class leader in cargo box volume* and allowing you to carry more in one trip."

Additional features of the new cargo box include:

  • Added width to increase capacity and reduce mud sling
  • 12V SAE power port
  • Five divider slots on the side and three at the front of the box to hold items in place
  • Ability to create a second level of storage
  • Redesigned tailgate with a flat work surface, ruler, v-groove for cutting pipe, anti-gravity pockets, bump stops and cup holders
  • Integrated clamping points to help secure items in place
  • Fold flat tie-downs in the front-middle and four corners of the bed
  • Tie-down pockets, providing a dedicated place for straps when securing loads that obstruct access to the D-rings on the inside of the box
  • Four stake pockets on each side to work with stake pocket clamps to hold tools
  • Mountable utility rack option
