The Toro Company's new line of side-by-side utility vehicles (UTVs) includes two gas-powered electronic fuel injection (EFI) models  — the 500 EFI and 700 EFI — that will be available in the spring of 2015. These 4-wheel-drive vehicles offer seating for three and can be customized with a wide range of accessories including windshields, cabs, plow blades, light kits, winches, a stereo, and more.

The new Toro UTVs are powered by 4-stroke engines with EFI technology for improved fuel efficiency, and come with Duramatic automatic transmissions, dynamic engine braking, and electronic 2WD/4WD selection as standard. Additional features include a digital display that provides instant access to critical operating information such as fuel level, temperature, oil pressure, speedometer/tachometer, and more.

The transformable design of the tilting rear cargo box allows conversion to a flatbed in minutes to enhance hauling versatility. The 700 EFI has a total payload capacity of 1,500 lbs. (1,100 lbs. for the 500 EFI), and both models are  equipped with a standard front brush guard and adjustable CAM-style shocks for 10 inches of ground clearance to handle rough terrain. Integrated front and rear two-inch receivers give users the ability to hook up trailers or attachments at either end of the machine.

This new line of side-by-side UTVs and accessories will be available at select Toro dealers beginning in the spring of 2015
