Kubota's transformable utility vehicle

The RTV1140CPX model has many benefits for property owners, facility managers, and outdoorsmen.

Kubota has added a transformable four-passenger model to its popular utility vehicle lineup with the new RTV1140CPX. This innovative RTV features a transformation system that quickly converts from one- to-two row seating options, allowing the operator to choose between additional passenger capacity or best-in-class cargo space, depending on the task at hand. The innovative rail system is mounted on the OSHA-spec roll-over protection structure (ROPS) to allow easy and seamless transitions when converting from the one- to-two row seating options.

"The RTV1140 provides exceptional comfort and safety accommodating four adults, as well as unmatched cargo configurations, capacity and convenience," says Dan Muramoto, product manager for Kubota. "The RTV1140 is much anticipated and has exceptionally broad appeal, from ranchers and farmers to property owners, facility managers and outdoorsmen; this new utility vehicle provides solutions for a wide variety of applications."

Additional seating and cargo space

With the RTV1140's innovative three-step conversion, operators no longer have to choose between expanded cargo space and a four-passenger utility vehicle -- they can have the best of both worlds. Retractable seatbelts and a hydraulic lift bed come standard on all RTV1140 models; the lift bed is operational in both seating configurations. When additional cargo space is needed, operators simply follow the three-step conversion:

  • Unlatch cargo screen, slide forward and secure

  • Flip up the rear seat and open front-quarter cargo box sides

  • Unlatch front wall of cargo box, flip into place and secure

Reliable power

The RTV1140 utility vehicle is powered by a three-cylinder Kubota diesel engine with 24.8-horsepower, four-wheel wet disc brakes and hydraulic power steering. The RTV1140 also features a new VHT Plus transmission that delivers easier gear-shifting and smoother, dynamic braking. Maximum cargo load is 1,102 lbs., with a towing capacity of 1,300 lbs.
