One size really does fit all
Able to switch between two-seat cargo hauler and four-seat people mover in a few quick steps, the Kawasaki MuleTM 4010 Trans4x4® utility vehicle is a genuine two-for-one bargain. Getting the increased cargo capacity of a two-passenger extended bed 4x4 is as easy as folding the rear seat down and extending the cargo bed forward into the cab. Need to move your crew? The Trans4x4 can be quickly converted back to four-passenger short bed mode by reversing those same easy steps.
Its selectable four-wheel drive, electric power steering (EPS) system and powerful, digital fuel injection (DFI®) equipped engine work in conjunction with a fully-automatic transmission and locking rear differential to make the versatile Mule 4010 Trans4x4 an outstanding choice for just about any utility vehicle need. Bold truck-like styling is complimented by smooth car-like controls, user-friendly dashboard layout and a tilting cargo bed.
The Mule 4010 4x4's liquid-cooled 617cc four-stroke V-twin is managed by a digital Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and features a DFI system that compensates for variations in atmospheric pressure, engine and air temperature. The result is smooth and consistent engine starting, crisp throttle response and more precise fuel metering, which helps reduce fuel consumption. The ECU incorporates an automatic fast idle speed control that activates when the engine is cold, eliminating the need for a manual choke. Its electronics also regulate maximum engine speed, eliminating the need for a mechanical governor.
The powerful 617cc V-twin engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that features both high and low range plus reverse. Power is transmitted through a dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive system to a dual-mode rear differential that can be locked to maximize traction, or unlocked to improve handling and minimize ground disturbance when making tight turns. Mule 4010 Trans4x4 drivers can also engage four-wheel drive for extra traction in difficult conditions.
