Cargo bed carries 58 cubic feet with an additional 4 on the side.

The Argo Sasquatch XTX (Xtreme Terrain Vehicle) is now available. The amphibious vehicle seats four and traverses not only terrain, but also water. The XTX is powered by a Doosan turbo diesel. The HDT automatic e-Steer transmission has a torque sensing design and operates in a wide range of temperatures. The electric transmission allows for a zero turn radius.

The 71-inch, patent-pending XT328 tires have a cupped-to-flat tread pattern that provide water propulsion, a grip for side hilling, and traction for challenging terrain. ATC terrain control allows the operator to match tire inflation to terrain with a one-touch preset button. Tires automatically deflate or inflate. Five-valve independent cold air inflation is powered by an electronic pump. Steel beadlock rings provide additional strength and secure the tire bead in low-pressure applications.

Entry into the vehicle is through the front door, which has an integrated ladder. The door folds up and provides a watertight seal when latched closed.

The cargo area measures 64 inches wide by 48 inches long and is 41 inches deep.
