UTV Characteristics UTVís differ from ATVís in that UTVís typically have a side by side seating arrangement, many have seat belts and roll over protection, and most have a cargo box at the rear of the vehicle. The UTVís generally have a higher payload capability and are longer and wider than ATVís. While most ATVís can carry 125 to 200 lbs. of cargo in addition to the operatorís weight, the UTV payloads run from 800 to 1350 lbs. above the operator/passengerís weight. The payload is usually carried on a UTV below the top of the tires as opposed to an ATV where the load is carried above the fenders. This lower load positioning can drastically lower the vertical center of gravity which will increase stability. UTVís come in a number of different configurations.
