America’s Best Selling Diesel Utility Vehicle Manufacturer Sets the Bar Again, This Time in Value

GRAPEVINE, Tx. (January 16, 2018) – Kubota Tractor Corporation, the best-selling diesel utility vehicle manufacturer in North America since 2004*, enhances their current market standards with the introduction of the new RTV-X1120 models, Kubota’s most well-equipped utility vehicle at the best price among its competition. Designed for the commercial customers who use these machines for heavy duty work every day, the Kubota RTV-X1120 combines Kubota quality with enhanced power, torque and performance at a starting price point of $13,999 MSRP.

“The biggest surprise for the marketplace is the technology offered at a competitive price point. The new RTV-X1120 is a well-equipped machine at a highly competitive price point,” said Roger Gifford, Kubota product manager, utility vehicles. “Simply put, there is no better value currently in the market, and we are extremely excited about adding these models to our lineup. We are confident that commercial customers will appreciate the six new model options to consider when purchasing a worksite utility vehicle.”

Boost in Power, Torque and Transport Speeds

The RTV-X1120 features a 24.8 gross horsepower diesel engine, dependable and ready for any job. Kubota-built and all-terrain proven, the 3-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine has a well-earned reputation for providing extra acceleration and climbing power. The engine and VHT-X transmission provide a top speed of 29 mph as well as plenty of hill-climbing power. With the increased speed comes an increased dynamic load, so the RTV-X1120 comes equipped with three-point seatbelts for safety.

Step-Up in Style and Comfort

Kubota’s X Series was designed for comfort and convenience under tough working conditions and the RTV-X1120 includes style and creature comforts found in the RTV-X family. Designed for reducing operator fatigue during long work days, the RTV-X1120 features new shoulder restraints for the operator and passenger, ergonomically designed 60:40 split bucket seats, digital dashboard display, fully hydraulic power steering, easily accessible parking brake and large under seat storage compartments. The RTV-X1120 models are available in two color options: Kubota Orange and RealTree® AP Camo. Options include machine-polished alloy wheels (standard on RTV-X1120D models only), optional black alloy rims and a spray-on bed liner is also available on all models except for the General Purpose model.

Capable of Hauling, Towing

The heavy-duty cargo steel cargo box on the RTV-X1120 models provides ample room to haul gear, supplies, tools and material around a jobsite. Plus, with the simple switch of a lever, the hydraulic-lift (worksite models only) cargo box rises to dump materials, allowing more efficiency and less manual labor unloading cargo. Standard two-inch receivers are located at the front and back of the vehicle, allowing a tow capacity up to 1,300 lbs.

The new RTV-X1120 models offering will be available at Kubota dealerships in February 2018.
