     The new Expedition SWT goes beyond standard utility expectations giving riders an extremely versatile snowmobile to take care of business in the snow. Whether a day’s business consists of gathering the next load of firewood for the camp, hauling the ice shanty out on the lake, or a spirited ride exploring new trails and backcountry is up for debate. With performance oriented features like the RAS 2 front suspension for precise, confident handling, mixed with its giant footprint to effortlessly float atop the snow, the Expedition SWT is equipped for whatever a winter’s day has in store.

    The 900 ACE powerplant provides plenty of torque when paired with the Hi-Lo-R Synchromesh transmission, and a variety of riding options with Ski-Doo exclusive Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) with three driving modes (Economy, Standard, Sport).


    REV-XU: Durable, versatile, and lightweight, the architecture of the REV-XU platform offers riding comfort in any position. Sitting or standing, it enables both relaxed and performance-minded riding styles. Driver can stretch their legs due to forward foot position.


    SC-5U rear suspension: Built for a refined, yet capable ride on trail or floating on top of the powder. This sport utility suspension features an articulated rail for maximum deep-snow traction in reverse, and can be locked out when towing.
