2022 KAWASAKI MULE SX 4X4 XC | New model showroom | News | Vehicles
Kawasaki have unveiled the 2022 model of the popular entry-level, 4X4, side-by-side, the Mule SX 4X4 XC.
Just like the Mule SX, the SX 4X4 XC can fit in the bed of a full-size pickup truck only this time it has four-wheel-drive!
Belt-driven automatic transmission with forward and reverse provides excellent riding capability. Rear differential lock for maximum traction.
SMOOTH, RELIABLE POWER
The MULE SX 4×4 XC is powered by a 401cm³, 4-stroke, OHV, air-cooled engine. Compact, lightweight and durable, the engine is extremely reliable.
IMPRESSIVE CARRYING CAPACITY
The MULE SX XC’s 905mm x 1,044mm x 245mm (L x W x H) cargo tray holds a sizable 181kg. Cargo bed features a two-lever tailgate release system for easy opening and closing.
TOUGH & RUGGED
All-steel front bumper is a standard feature, offering protection to the front of the vehicle. It is positioned close to the body for a sleek, integrated look.
The seating for 2 adults has superb elasticity, resistance to cold, and enough padding for all-day working comfort.
The dashboard contains all indicators, information and buttons to operate the MULE SX 4×4 XC. Spaces available for additional accessories and buttons.
A 16-litre fuel tank gives the fuel-efficient MULEs ample operating range. The fuel tank filler inlet position makes refuelling easy.
Dual halogen headlamps cut a bright path. The Halogen headlamps (the same sporty units used on Kawasaki’s Teryx and Teryx4 models) contribute to the no-nonsense styling.
Like its Mule SX sibling, the Mule SX XC’s compact dimensions allow it to easily fit in the back of a full-sized utility / truck. The 4WD Mule SX XC track measures 1,080 mm (front) and 1,050 mm (rear) with a wheelbase of 1,780 mm. The Mule SX XC has a tight turning radius of 3.6 metres (2WD and differential unlocked) for compact manoeuvring in tight spaces.
Japanese durability to work hard & play hard. Kawasaki’s “little” Mule has very capably met market needs for lightweight, compact utility vehicle capable of filling a variety of roles. Robust construction and reliable components ensure the durability to get the job done day after day, while enjoying the great outdoors on weekends.
ROPS APPROVED AND SAFE OPERATION
The Mule SX XC’s cab frame is ROPS approved and is fitted with 2 retractable seat belts. The Mule SX XC’s vehicle speed is restricted to 40 kph. Always adhere to the warnings in the Owners Manual and always wear the seat belts and a suitable helmet.
TILT STEERING WHEEL
Steering wheel has a stepless adjustability range of approximately 29o, allowing drivers to set the position, as well as lift it out of the way when getting in and out of the vehicle.

Removable front hood leads to a 60-litre sealed storage area. The hood releases are on the cabin side, allowing access from inside the cabin.
HIGH MOUNT AIR INTAKE
Engine air supply enters the air cleaner box via a snorkel intake routed in the overhead frame, ensuring the engine is provided with a steady supply of clean air.
Thick-grip steering wheel puts all controls within easy reach of the driver. The shape of the wheel is designed to minimise fatigue and maximise control.
HIGH GRIP 26 INCH TYRES
26” bias-ply tyres contribute to superior off-road handling. The massive tyres also add to the rugged, sporty image.
Passenger-side glove box provides enclosed storage for small items. Two drink holders are built into the bodywork in front of the dashboard. Accessory storage bin can be fitted to the space under the bench seat.
Standard fitment on the MULE SX 4×4 XC, the trailer hitch offers a 500 kg towing capacity.
Independent MacPherson strut-type front suspension allows each wheel to track over uneven ground for maximum traction with light steering effort. Minimal wheel camber change throughout the suspension stroke for stability.
Unit swingarm with dual shocks and adjustable spring preload. Front and rear suspension settings to balance off-road performance and ride comfort.
Skid plates for the front differential, engine and rear differential are fitted as standard equipment. Centre skid plate greatly reduces the chance of getting stuck when driving over obstacles.
RETRACTABLE SEAT BELTS
New retractable seat belts are user-friendly and clutter-free. Perfect in combination with the ROPS
The parking brake lever, located to the left of the driver’s seat, operates a mechanical internal expansion type brake for the rear wheels.
