2019 Textron Off Road Alterra 450 4x4, 2019 Textron Off Road Alterra 450 4x4 BUILT FOR OUTSIDE. BUILT TO OUT RIDE. We took the brand-new body style and endless capabilities of the full-sized Alterra, and adapted them for the more compact 450/400 mid-sized models. Part workhorse, part warrior, these machines are more nimble, lightweight and versatile than the competition. Everything from the Duramatic automatic transmission, trail-tuned independent suspension, on-the-fl y 2WD/4WD and rear hitch, all the way down to the front winch and powder coated steel rims that give you 10"/25,4 cm of ground clearance. Needless to say, we didn’t mess around with these newly styled Alterras. Features may include: FULLY INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION (MIDSIZE) The fully independent suspension on the Alterra™ 450 and 400 models gives you an impressive 10 inches of ground clearance and 7 inches of suspension travel on a smaller machine. The double A-arms optimize wheel motion, translating into more responsive steering and better cornering. FRONT AND REAR IMPACT-RESISTANT RACKS Strong and durable. These impact-resistant racks are rated for 75 lbs. carrying capacity on the front and 150 lbs. on the rear. TRANSMISSION AUTOMATIC DURAMATIC Our Duramatic™ automatic transmission is as bulletproof as they come. It’s made of a centrifugal clutch with primary and driven belt clutches. As RPMs rise, the centrifugal clutch engages, allowing the primary clutch to be engaged with the belt at all times, reducing belt wear and extending belt life. ALTERRA REAR TOWING DEVICE All Alterra Models are equipped with a rugged, automotive-style 50mm ball with trailer connector (7-pin) towing device simplifies towing applications. ERGONOMICS AND TURNING RADIUS The new Alterra chassis features a more upright sitting position, delivering improved ergonomics and reducing handling effort. These machines are indeed more maneuverable, with an improved turning radius, while requiring a shorter reach from the rider.
