Power, performance, precision engineering

That’s what the Textron family builds into every one of its vehicles, from jets, to helicopters and other machines designed to conquer new frontiers and serve our country. Textron is proud to extend that legacy to the off road with Arctic Cat side-by-sides and ATVs, for the hardest workers and boldest adventurers. 

Our History

A Passion for the Off Road that Runs Deep

Our story starts in 2003, in Natchez, Mississippi, where we built all-electric and hybrid gas/electric 4WD vehicles under the name Bad Boy®, gaining a reputation among serious hunters for stealth, and off-road performance.

In 2010, we became part of Textron Inc., a Fortune 250 company, known worldwide for its powerful aviation brands. The innovation they put into Bell® helicopters, Cessna® aircraft and more was now part of our story, and the key to our future.

In 2017, after years of bringing highly-engineered side-by-sides and ATVs to showrooms throughout North America, we added Arctic Cat’s renowned line of off-road vehicles to our lineup. One year later, we unleashed the most anticipated performance side-by-side of 2018: Wildcat XX, a vehicle built to Ride Over Everything. And there’s plenty more where that came from with our 2019 lineup

After a year and a half under the Textron Off Road name, the passion of the loyal Arctic Cat customer base spoke loud and clear. We listened, and transitioned our off-road vehicles back to Arctic Cat in 2019. As a proud member of the Textron family, we remain committed to continuing the traditions of power, performance and precision engineering.
