2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 Test

Optional Models

The base model retails for $13,399, with the most equipped EPS LE model retailing for $15,199. In addition to the standard features found on the base model, all of the upgraded models, including the Camo, receive the upgraded front shocks, power steering, and door covers. The EPS and EPS LE models feature two-tone seat covers. The EPS LE also features a roll cage cover and cast aluminum wheels.

The Conclusion

The Teryx4 isn’t just a four-seat Teryx; it is an all-new vehicle that has been improved upon in nearly every way! We’re confident it would be fun in the dunes, and, perhaps, the best four-seat option for the woods. Even if we only planning on hauling two people, if cargo bed space isn’t a huge issue, we might consider the four-seat model over the two-seater. Kawasaki has literally outdone themselves with the Teryx4 and added a very viable four-seat sport model to the side-by-side market.
