Power steering is now available on Gator XUV 825i and XUV 855D Crossover models.
The power-steering system, electronic power-assist steering (EPAS), has advanced features that include:
- Anti-kickback feature that reduces the amount of steering unwinding when traversing difficult terrain.
- The system is speed sensing and adjusts steering efforts as the speed of the vehicle changes. As speed increases, there is less steering assist to provide good road feel; as the speed decreases, the steering assist increases to provide low steering efforts for increased maneuverability.
- The system includes a warning/functional light on the instrument panel along with self-diagnostics and warning light in the situation of no assist.
- Torque sensor measures steering-wheel input so the on-board computer can provide the appropriate output.
