2022 ARGO AURORA 950 BIGFOOT MX8 8X8MSRP Starts at $29,799.00 USD*+ $999 factory to dealer freight, $375 factory commodity surcharge, and $225 dealer PDI
The 2022 Aurora 950 Bigfoot MX8 8x8 is the ultimate mud monster with its powerful 40hp air-cooled EFI engine, hood fan, and proprietary Argo XT119 mud-specific tires. New for 2022 is the ITC (Instant Torque Clutch) that responds quicker than previous model years and increases torque to the tires for better overall performance with or without tracks installed. A new 8.5-gallon fuel tank increases range, and full-motion chain tensioners reduce chain stretch and offer reduced maintenance. The unit features the Argo IPS steering, flat floor, 20% more driver compartment room with steering on the left side of the vehicle, handlebar controls with push-button start, high/low headlight switch, and the ability to now start the vehicle in gear by pulling the brake and pushing the start button. An LCD speedometer/tachometer with fuel gauge keeps track of your playtime and a high mounted transmission shifter will eliminate your knees from hitting the shifter like on previous models. Increased under hood volume will keep things cooler and an insulated firewall will increase driver comfort. Power comes from a Briggs & Stratton 40hp EFI air cooled gas engine which provides excellent power in the deepest mud and is mated to the efficient Admiral triple differential transmission in standard 6.2 gear ratio for the best top speed. New Argo designed XT119 25x12-9 (635 mm) mud specific and swim tires mounted on 9" offset aluminum rims combine to give this machine great traction and best in class payload all while providing a water speed of 1.5 mph.
Standard equipment includes a bilge pump, full-length skid plate, hood fan with a hood scoop, HD drive belt, brushguard, Warn 3500lb VRX wich, front and rear bearing extensions, 9" aluminum offset AirLock rims, high/ low headlights, and led rear tail lights. The Aurora 950 Bigfoot MX8 8x8 is designed as the ultimate mud bog vehicle.
Extreme duty 1.375" steel forged axles mounted on off-set aluminum AirLock rims allow for a quick and reliable conversion to tracks or running low air pressures for a more comfortable ride. Gone are the days of adding wheel spacers and lug extenders. All you need to do is turn the rim around, reinstall the lug nuts and slide the tracks on. This new design greatly improves durability and reduces installation time.
The Aurora 950 Bigfoot MX8 8x8 is powered by a 4-stroke OHV V-Twin air-cooled 993cc, 40 hp (29.8 kW) Briggs & Stratton Vanguard Marine engine with electronic fuel injection and a 50 amp alternator. It has a load capacity of up to 1060 lb. / 481 kg on land or 860 lb. / 390 kg on water, can transport 4 passengers on land, and up to 4 on water, and features a towing capacity of 1800 lb. / 816 kg.
This model does not meet California CARB emission standards and cannot be sold or shipped to California.
INSTANT TORQUE CLUTCH (ITC)
New for 2022 is the Argo-developed Instant Torque Drive System (ITDS) which improves low-end torque and increases acceleration. The new Instant Torque Clutch (ITC) is designed to provide the optimal gear ratio in all terrains and conditions or whether you are running tracks. Torque increases 28% compared to our previous optional HT (3.3 or 8.1) transmission ratios and acceleration increases by 25% compared to our previous clutching when tested on the standard ratio Admiral or Classic transmissions.
The APS (Argo Progressive Steering) is an innovation in the area of braking force applied to the transmission steering differential. This new steering system implements a dual-rate progressive spring allowing the vehicle to turn in one continuous motion making the vehicle easier and more comfortable to drive.
The Admiral transmission offers a smooth driving experience with its triple limited-slip differentials that reduce power in high gear offer effortless turning and reduce maintenance with the direct drive shafts to the drive chains. High / Low gear selection is easily accomplished by the lever on the dashboard and separate hand brake calipers offer superior braking while still being able to control the steering direction.
The signature AirLock aluminum 9" rim allows you to adjust the air pressure of the tires depending on your terrain without the possibility of the tire coming off the rim while proving up to a 30% smoother ride over non-AirLock designs.
