2018 Kawasaki Mule PRO-DX EPS Diesel



The 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 riding comfort and handling come from the thoughtful engineering of four-wheel independent suspension, Electric Power Steering (EPS), and enough cabin space to fit 3 full-size adults comfortably.
  • PREMIUM 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 superior bump absorption in rough low speed situations as well as dampening higher-speed chatter.
  • ELECTRIC POWER STEERING: Speed-sensitive EPS eases steering effort to provide all-day comfort and less driver fatigue. Steering remains light and precise with minimal kickback. Tilt steering and large diameter plush steering for added comfort.
  • CABIN SPACE: Padded bench seat fits 3 adults comfortably with generous shoulder and leg room. 3 automotive-style retractable 3-point seatbelts enhance safety and are comfortable and easy to use. Inline transmission shift lever, parking brake, 2WD/4WDand differential lock controls are strategically placed for easy accessibility. 13-gallon under-seat storage bin offers ample room for your belongings.


  • INTELLIGENT DESIGN: The ladder-type construction of the welded main frame optimizes flex, rigidity and strength while intelligent design features help protect vital components. All-steel front bumper helps protect bodywork. Welded 1-piece main frame for increased strength and durability. Integrated inner wheel wells help protect engine compartment from debris.

Largest Cargo Bed In Class

  • Extreme Capability: With the power to get the job done, you can flat-load a standard-size 40x48 wooden pallet into the cargo bed, haul up to 1,000 lbs.* in the steel-based bed, and tow up to 2,000-lbs. 1,000-lb.* cargo capacity easily accommodates level-loading a standard wooden pallet. Steel-based cargo bed with enhanced durability and KQR™ cargo bed rails featuring quick release capabilities. 2-inch hitch receiver with massive 2,000-lbs. towing capacity. *600 lbs. max. capacity for California models.


  • OUR FASTEST, MOST POWERFUL MULE™ SIDE X SIDE EVER: This 812cc, three-cylinder with massive torque has impressive pulling power for hauling and towing heavy loads across rugged terrain. The combination of a powerful engine and a responsive Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) result in maximum traction and powerful acceleration. The engine and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) offer broad, usable power delivery that excels when loaded to capacity and/or navigating demanding terrain. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) also contributes to smooth, consistent engine braking that helps to maintain reduced vehicle speed during descents.
