Arctic Cat Unveils Some Details About Its 2021 (Yes, 2021) Snowmobile Lineup

October 2019 Feature

In one of the earliest launches of a snowmobile lineup we can ever remember, Arctic Cat today is giving some details about its 2021 lineup before this riding season even really gets underway.

Before we dive into the mountain segment of Cat’s lineup, we need to emphasize TWO things.

1 – This is NOT the full 2021 product lineup. That will come in November. This is kind of a teaser.

2 – Cat’s spring buying program Snowmageddon will be back and in place for Model Year 2021.

M 8000 Mountain Cat/M 8000 Hardcore Alpha One

The undisputed kings of the mountain continue to conquer the backcountry with the revolutionary Alpha One single-beam rear suspension. 

  • For Model Year 2021, Cat is continuing to use its industry-leading heat exchanger system, which minimizes snow build up on the chassis, running boards and rear suspension to ensure solid footing and drastically reduce snow weight carried on the machine in the backcountry.
  • Cat has revised calibrations on all Fox QS3/QSL shocks and springs for improved big bump absorption.
  • All models come with standard Alpha snow/ice scratchers for cooling and lubrication.
  • A revised engine mounting system utilizes a carbon fiber TCL that results in a 2.5-pound weight savings with improved engine vibration damping.
