A ride through the scenic desert trails in Utah on the new John Deere Gator RSX

Moab, Utah, is a destination for many thrill-seekers looking to experience the landscape on one of the several desert trails on anything from a mountain bike to a utility vehicle. John Deere hosted a media event July 10-12 in Moab to launch its brand-new Gator RSX 850i utility vehicle, and editors from around the country had the chance to test them out on the trails. On Wednesday, July 11, each editor rode his or her own Gator RSX along the Seven Mile Trail, which offered long, sandy stretches and many majestic rock formations along the way. On Thursday, July 12, editors partnered up for the intense Hell's Revenge Trail, which tested the durability and engine power of the vehicles with its steep, narrow paths and a very rough, rocky terrain. Take a look at how the Gator RSX performed. Pricing on the new Gator RSX 850i starts at $12,500. More information can be found at www.johndeere.com. Photos: Kathy Huting
