  2. I just purchased a 2020 Stampede 4 XT EPS about 30 days ago. Like you I really couldn't find any reviews or information outside of the Arctic Cat website. I think this is because Textron who bought Arctic Cat back in 2017 recently decided to bring the Arctic Cat name back to their UTV's after originally only using it on the snowmobiles post acquisition. From the best I could tell this is the same 4 stroke engine that Textron had in the Recoil and Ambush models. It's now being built in one of their MN facilities after moving production from Germany so it appears the whole machine is now built in MN. I ended up purchasing the Stampede because I am familiar with the reliability of the Arctic Cat snowmobile brand from growing up in the north, the great standard features it comes with and the significant rebates that Artic Cat is currently giving. I will say that down in Texas where I live they are extremely difficult to get. I ended up having to go up to OK to pick one up. I was told this was because this is a new model and the plant has been shut down due to the Pandemic. So far I really like the Stampede. I only have about 20 hours on it but so far it's been a great vehicle. Have mostly used it around our property to haul fencing equipment and other misc items. I have taken it out in the mud a few times, once with a buddy who has a smaller Razor. Obviously the Razor is more designed for off road so it was more nimble but overall it didn't blow my doors off by any stretch of the imagination and I was able to hang on it's tail almost all the time. For me the real test will be in the long term durability of it because so far the initial performance and quality have been really good. So far it's been well worth the long drive to pick it up and the money.
