In early October 2011 E-Z-GO introduced major upgrades across the utility vehicle line. This update gives the vehicles a modern, more aggressive look, increases their versatility and functionality across all segments, and ultimately drives customer excitement and sales growth for E-Z-GO and its distribution partners. The most noticeable change will be the new cowl design and standard front brush guard for all utility vehicles. The new cowl is much more aggressive than the previous design, and better positions our utility vehicles as rugged machines built for hard work and rough play. It is complemented by a front fascia underneath the cowl that completes the assertive look and also provides protection for the front suspension and other vehicle components. Finally, the brush guard is shaped from tubular steel, with reinforced connection points where it joins the cowl to guard against breakage due to hard daily use and abuse. The new cowl also features large, round integrated headlights, with the ability to add optional integrated turn signals. The new headlight design looks more contemporary and also improves lighting performance, with better light dispersion in front of and around the vehicle. For even better lighting performance, the vehicles can be fitted with optional high-output LED headlamps.
For vehicles with cargo beds, the look is continued with a new top and strut design that is much beefier and more modern than the current “golf-car” top. The new struts are fabricated from thick tubular steel, and are more steeply raked in the front for a sportier, more aggressive look. The new top is injection-molded with reinforced ribbing for high strength at lighter weight, and combines an updated look with improved protection from the elements for driver and passenger.
In addition to the changes above, the E-Z-GO ST line of trail-utility vehicles will be discontinued and replaced by two distinct product lines: the E-Z-GO Terrain line of utility vehicles with cargo beds, and the E-Z-GO Express line of utility vehicles with additional seating for moving multiple passengers.
