Large, extra-durable, one-piece cargo box ensures hard-driving performance and longevity

The cargo box consists of a high-density polyethylene copolymer composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise. This large, one-piece design has rounded inside corners to ensure material removal when tilted. The composite box is highly ribbed and supported with a welded, steel-ladder structure to ensure hard-driving performance and longevity. The three highly-styled exterior pieces are made of TPO for extra durability.

Removable lanyardsRemovable lanyards

The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. It features truck-like performance and can be operated with one hand.


The tailgate’s pivot point is made of hardened steel for durability and designed for tool-free removal. The standard lanyards can also be disconnected without tools to remove the tailgate for convenient loading and unloading tasks.

Tilted cargo boxTilted cargo box

The cargo box ease of use is critical to performing tasks quickly and efficiently. Starting with the truck-style tailgate, the removal of content in this cargo box could not be easier. The manual release also functions as the lift lever, done in a smooth, one-step motion. It can even be tilted from both sides of the vehicle. To reduce the overall effort of lift, the pivot point of the cargo box is closer to the center. The combination of easy-to-use attributes makes this cargo box best-in-class.


For servicing the vehicle’s systems, the cargo box is easily removable. With the removal of two bolts, the cargo box can easily be detached from the vehicle frame.

Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners
XUV front suspension detailXUV front suspension detail

To complement the comfortable operation station, the XUV560 and XUV590 Series are equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. This unique suspension set-up provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.


The engineering team, in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1®, NASCAR®, and INDYCAR® teams, built a capable suspension system for class-leading operator comfort no matter what the terrain.

Dual A-arm front suspension features include:
  • Dual, wide arch A-arm design provides maximum front-wheel control, precise steering, and maximum ground clearance out to the wheel
  • 203 mm (8 in.) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Adjustable coil-over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain
  • Solid anti-roll bar with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and upper A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, constant-velocity (CV) shaft, and wheels
  • Automotive-style, fully boxed and welded, high-strength steel, lower A-arms to minimize unsprung mass and maximize strength
  • Maintenance-free, rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
  • CV shaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot
  • Anti-dive front suspension geometry provides a solid platform for confident braking
  • Optimized steering geometry using ADAMS CAR simulation to minimize steering effort and maximize terrain feedback
XUV rear suspension detailXUV rear suspension detail
Independent rear suspension features include:
  • 203 mm (8 in.) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Unique, independent rear-suspension design ensures a great ride and protection for the CV shafts
  • Adjustable coil-over shocks absorb the most demanding terrain
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle, lower A-arm, and upper link to support the high stresses of the shocks, CV shaft, and wheels with the toughness to survive impacts from boulders
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
