John Deere’s 2016 RSX860i utility vehicle has updated features that include a new power steering option and backlit toggle switches to improve manageability. Other changes include increased speed, added power steering, and increased warranty.

The maximum engine speed increased from 7250 rpm to 7750 rpm, allowing the RSX860i a 10% increase in top speed over the previous model. Maximum speed in 60 mph.

Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS) is now an option on the 2016 model. The anti-kickback feature reduces the amount of unwinding steering when operating through demanding terrain. The system also senses speed and adjusts steering effort as the speed of the vehicle changes for improved terrain feel and maneuverability. All EPAS equipped vehicles are pre-wired for a winch.

For ease of operation during early morning/late evening, factory-installed toggle switches are now backlit for easy identification. For reduced noise, the front differential is a spiral bevel design. The helical design of this gear set is stronger and produces less vibration and noise compared to the straight cut gears found on many competitive vehicles. The steering knuckles and control arms are also painted post-machining to prevent rust and discoloration for a long lasting aesthetic appearance.

The RSX860i comes with a 12-month or 1,000-hour factory warranty.
