While the Pantera name has been used by Arctic Cat for almost 50 years, about the only things the new Pantera has in common with past models is the fact that it has a track, and loves playing in the snow!
A whole new generation of family & touring snowmobiles came about with the addition of the Protour chassis on the Pantera series of snowmobiles. Performance meets touring in the new Pantera which is based on a “stretched out” version of Arctic Cat’s Procross chassis which is used on the “ZR” performance sleds. The Protour chassis is the lightest, strongest, and most capable touring chassis in Arctic Cat’s history. Riders now enjoy a lower center of gravity which increases stability, making it perfect for 2-up excursions.
Power comes from an all new 700cc “3000 C-Tech4” 4-stroke engine producing 65hp. This new engine combines great power with clean technology and incredible fuel efficiency. It’s compact & lightweight, and thanks to electronic fuel injection, throttle response is immediate.
While the Pantera 3000 may be the “entry level” 4-stroke, it’s loaded with features you wouldn’t expect…electric start, reverse, heated front & rear seats, hand & thumb warmers, passenger foot rests, passenger hand warmers, passenger wind deflectors, front and rear accessory outlets, adjustable & removable rear seat, mirrors, front wind deflectors, electric shield outlets, and a front mounted sport bumper.
