The 2015 MULE 4000 provides the Foundation of Engineering Heritage in Kawasaki’s Full-Size MULE Side x Side Line.The 2015 Kawasaki MULE™ 4000 is a vehicle built to get the job done, no matter how big or how small. Another evolution of Kawasaki’s proud manufacturing heritage, the MULE 4000 side x side’s heavy-duty chassis and industrial grade four-stroke V-twin engine with Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)offer enough torque to haul seriously heavy loads. With a towing capacity of 1,200 lb and the ability to carry up to 800 lb of almost anything in its cargo bed, there’s a reason this MULE is the cornerstone of Kawasaki’s 4000 series side x side line.
While the competition does its best to play catch-up and eat into Polaris' dominance of the Side-by-Side market, the Minnesota-based manufacturer continues to push forward and change the way we think of UTVs. The latest example can be found in some patent documents we dug up for an innovative-looking four-seat Utility Side-by-Side.
We don't have a name for this machine yet, but it strikes a brutish pose that looks like it could be used on the jobsite or a military base. Most notable is the cargo bed, which opens up in the cab, where long items can be housed in a center tunnel between the seats. This would seem ideal for carrying lumber, ladders, or a myriad of military tools. This UTV looks like a cargo mover above all else.
