DULUTH, Ga. (Sept. 1, 2015) — Challenger®, a worldwide brand of AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), announced the introduction of the X-Edition Challenger MT700E/MT800E Series track tractor with a stunning midnight-black paint scheme at the Farm Progress Show last week.
"The X-Edition track tractor stands apart from any tractor you have ever seen with unique features, such as a custom, midnight-black finish," stated Ash Alt, AGCO tactical marketing manager for high-horsepower tractors. "But we didn’t stop there. The X-Edition has an unique logo, exclusive limited-edition serial number plate, custom Rigid Industries LED Lighting® package, deluxe embroidered heated-and-vented leather seats, specialized diamond plate debris deflectors, and diamond plate floor mats. Customers should act fast and talk to their local Challenger dealer, as there only will be 50 X-Edition track tractors produced."
In addition to its custom attributes, the X-Edition tractor also has the enhanced features of the 2016 Challenger models, including a deluxe cab, premium Kicker® sound system, Delphi® radio with Bluetooth® and integrated microphone, infotainment hookups, adjustable monitor bar with RAM mounts® with power strip and AgCommand® Standard Plus.
The X-Edition Challenger is available for United States and Canadian residents to pre-order through dealers on a first-come, first-served basis until Dec. 31, 2015. Those interested will have opportunities to see it in person before the end of the year at regional farm shows and dealer events across the country.
