John Deere Honors Vets with Utility Vehicle Design and SAVE FARM Program

John Deere has just announced plans to release the Gator XUV835M Honor Edition UTV, a utility vehicle designed to pay tribute to military vets. This special edition model comes with an upgraded feature set, along with desert sand exterior panels and military-inspired graphics. Additionally, John Deere has joined the SAVE Farm Program, an employment program targeted toward veterans transitioning to post-military life.

John Deere Honor Edition UTV: The Big Deal

In addition to the military-inspired aesthetic, the John Deere Honor Edition UTV features a host of upgrades that come standard. But John Deere also offers some optional upgrades to customize your ride.

As far as those options go, you can order the Gator XUV835M in an open-station configuration or as a closed cab. The closed-cab model comes with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. All of the 2022 John Deere Gator models, can be upgraded with Predator Heavy Duty all-terrain radial tires. The Predator tires have been designed for hard surfaces and intermediate off-roading, giving you some additional shock absorption and increased tread life.

The standard features include:

  • Military-inspired model numbers, brand, and graphics
  • Black alloy wheels with Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 Extreme Terrain radial tires
  • Black vinyl 40/60 split-bench seat
  • Sport steering wheel
  • Half-doors (open station models)
  • Black roof
  • Stone headliner (HVAC cab models)
  • Brush guard
  • Deluxe cargo box with spray-in liner, brake lights, and taillights
  • Cargo box power lift


The John Deere Gator Honor Edition UTV will be available for a limited time. You can preorder it now by getting in contact with your local John Deere dealership.

John Deere SAVE Farm Program: The Big Deal

In conjunction with the release of the special edition Gator UTV, John Deere has also announced their support for the SAVE Farm. This program provides farming, ranching, and agribusiness training and healing programs for service members, veterans, and their families.

John Deere has a long history of supporting the military and our veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect this country. We are proud to honor these brave individuals through our new special edition Gator Utility Vehicle while supporting organizations like The Save Farm.

Maureen McCormack, Go-to-Market Manager, Gator Utility Vehicles

In addition, John Deere has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense SkillBridge program to offer the Career Skills Program. This program allows service members an opportunity to put their leadership and technical skills to work at John Deere. The SkillBridge program helps servicemen begin their post-military careers by interning at a John Deere production facility or at a dealership during the last 5 months of their military commitment.
