2017 Kawasaki Mule PRO-DX Diesel



The 2017 MULE PRO-DX™ is our powerful, most capable diesel MULE™ side x side ever. Built on the same rugged platform as the MULE PRO-FX™, this innovative side x side comes equipped with the largest cargo bed in class all while offering comfortable full-size three-passenger seating. To top it off, the MULE PRO-DX is confidently backed by the Kawasaki STRONG 3-Year Limited Warranty.


  • UNMATCHED COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE: Exceptional ride comfort and handling thanks to four-wheel independent suspension and a spacious cabin that can accommodate three full-size adults comfortably.
  • SUSPENSION: Independent front and rear suspension contribute to a smooth, comfortable ride. Rubber bushings provide extended life and reduce maintenance. Twin-tube shock absorbers provide excellent bump absorption and handling over rough terrain.
  • CABIN: Padded bench seat fits 3 adults comfortably with generous shoulder and leg room. Three automotive-style retractable 3-point seatbelts enhance safety and are easy to use. Inline transmission shift lever, parking brake, 2WD/4WD and differential lock are strategically placed for easy accessibility.


  • INTELLIGENT DESIGN: The ladder-type construction of the welded one-piece main frame optimizes flex, rigidity and strength while intelligent design features help protect vital components.

Largest Cargo Bed In Class

  • EXTREME CAPABILITY: The power to get the job done means flat-loading an entire wooden pallet onto the massive steel-based cargo bed, towing up to 2,000-lbs., hauling up to 1,000 lb., and much, much more.


  • OUR POWERFUL, MOST CAPABLE, FULL-SIZE THREE-PASSENGER DIESEL MULE™ SIDE X SIDE EVER: This 993 cc, three-cylinder diesel engine with massive torque packs impressive pulling power for hauling and towing heavy loads across rugged terrain.
