Speed UTV El Jefe 


Naming a utility terrain vehicle “The Boss” is a bold marketing decision that invokes big expectations. Nevertheless, Speed UTV opted to dub their massive side-by-side “El Jefe”, or “The Boss” in English. To ensure the utility terrain vehicle lives up to the name, Speed UTV equipped El Jefe with the following. 


  • Liquid cooled, 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, 1000cc turbo engine
  • 3 speed transmission
  • 15 gallon tank 


When activated, these components collectively produce 225 horsepower and up to 85 mph. 


All Terrain Vehicle Body


Also residing in El Jefe is a 161” long, 77” wide, 70” tall steel frame. This sturdy body is wrapped in plastic, and big enough to house a four seater cabin packed with the following features.


  • Vinyl bucket racing seats
  • Four 5-point harnesses
  • Glove box
  • 2 cup holders
  • Window nets
  • Aluminum, roll cage roof


Right behind the roomy four door interior is a 36” long, 8” deep, 48” wide truck bed. ATVers can utilize this extra storage space to haul roughly 350 lbs. 


Utility Terrain Vehicle Wheels


To keep all the aforementioned components off the ground, Speed UTV equipped El Jefe with high-quality parts, such as those listed below.


  • 9.5” wide, 32.5” tall wheels
  • Hydraulic disc brakes
  • Double A-Arm 77 inch wide suspension
  • Independent rear suspension
  • 2 rear shock absorbers


Thanks to these strong, reliable components and a powerful engine, El Jefe can transport about 1,000 lbs of extra weight.

UTV fans hoping to go ATVing with a large group of people can make the concept a reality if they buy El Jefe. Furthermore, group trailblazing can be accomplished in a somewhat safe manner since the UTV is equipped with safety gear, such as head and tail lights.

  • 15.5” of ground clearance makes getting inside the powersports machine a challenge
  • As of date, the UTV only comes with a 6-month warranty

  • Too wide to be legally operated on most state funded trails
  • Weighs about 2,150 lbs
  • Heavy enough to tear up terrain at low speeds
  • Runs on 91 octane
  • Not race legal


Without a doubt, El Jefe lives up to its boastful name. However, after factoring in all the known negatives it is highly debatable as to whether or not this gas powered 4 wheeler is worth buying.
