Yamaha went to a 686-cubic-centimeter engine with fuel injection for the 2008 Rhino 700 FI Automatic 4x4. The Ultramatic transmission keeps constant tension on the drive belt to avoid unnecessary wear and eliminate freewheeling. On-Command, push-button selection of two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, together with lockable differential, gives the driver traction options for matching terrain. Adjustable independent front and rear dual A-arm suspension offers more than 7.3 inches of travel. The tilting cargo bed carries 400 pounds. Suggested retail price is about $10,500.
