How Much Does a John Deere Gator Cost?

Written by: Staff

The very first John Deere Gator utility vehicle came out in 1993, and since then, several models and variations have become available.

The John Deere Gator is a line of small all-terrain utility vehicles that are produced by the John Deere Corporation.  Manufactured in a variety of configurations, this Gator family of utility vehicles are designed to be used on farms, ranches, and worksites rather than as pure off-road vehicles.

How much does a John Deere Gator cost?

The cost of the John Deere Gator will vary depending on the drive system preference (2WD, 6×4 or 4WD0, the cargo hauling needs, terrain capabilities, engine power, power type, seat capacity, if power steering is required and which attachments, if you choose to need them, are added.  From our research, the most basic John Deere Gator vehicles, with no attachments, can start at $7,000 to $16,000+, but if you were to add attachments, it could easily increase the costs by more than 20 to 40 percent.
