Club Car, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, announced that its 2014 line of Carryall utility vehicles has been reengineered and restyled with a more powerful engine, a high-efficiency charging system and a bed box that protects and organizes equipment.
A 14hp-rated Subaru 404cc overhead cam engine with electronic fuel injection (EFI) boosts horsepower by more than 30 percent and increases fuel efficiency by almost 50 percent over previous gas-powered Carryall vehicles. A new Carryall loaded with more than a half ton of cargo is estimated to get approximately 27 miles per gallon. Without a choke or carburetor, EFI engines also start quicker, even in frigid weather. The engine’s filter-less oil system also may decrease maintenance costs.
Carryall’s electric-powered vehicles with the IQ Plus power train also get a boost in 2014 with a new solid-state, high-efficiency charging system.
Carryall’s redesigned bed box – lined with the same material used in many pickup trucks – is sturdier, longer lasting and quieter than previous bed constructions. Rustproof aluminum side panels feature a fully integrated track-based attachment system for organizing and transporting shovels, rakes, blowers and other equipment. Movable bed dividers and cargo tie-down loops stabilize cargo to reduce shifting.
Contoured seating and more space between the seat back and a new ergonomically engineered soft-grip steering wheel increase driver comfort. The shifter and gauges are now integrated into an automotive-style dash.
The Carryall 300, 500, 550 and 700 models also feature a stylish look with LED taillights and halogen headlights. Larger cowls made of Club Car’s exclusive ArmorFlex material and bumpers and fenders made of resilient plastic replace the boxy look of many utility vehicles, giving Carryall a more rugged appearance and feel.
The new line of Carryall vehicles is backed by an expanded warranty on most models that increases the coverage for gas and electric powertrains from two to three years and increases coverage for most other components from one to two years.
Additional Features and Benefits:
- Single-handed latch-and-release tailgate, similar to a tailgate on a pickup truck, spans the entire bed and can be opened from either side.
- Optional cab (integrated into the vehicle’s design) features a windshield and doors that sit flush with the frame and do not require an adapter kit.
- Larger tires (20” vs. 18”) increase traction and ground clearance to deliver a more comfortable ride while decreasing turf compaction.
Club Car offers more than 28 light-, medium- and heavy-duty models and configurations of utility and transport vehicles. The vehicles are available in 2-, 4-, 6- and 8-passenger models powered by gasoline and diesel engines and electric motors.
