Clackamas, OR – Warn Industries is excited to introduce its new lineup of winches for trucks and SUVs. Starting at $399 after an $80 mail-in rebate, these units will continue to offer the dependability, performance, and reliability that WARN winches are known for. The new entry-level price will appeal to both the first-time winch buyer, as well as those looking to save money but still get a genuine WARN winch. With a host of new features and technology, the latest WARN winch offerings will continue the company’s tradition of innovation, quality, and dependability. 

New WARN VR Series Winches
The new WARN VR (Vehicle Recovery) Series winches are a great way to get into the WARN line of winches. The VR Series is ideal for a first winch, or for enthusiasts looking to save some cash while still getting the quality and dependability of a WARN winch.

The VR Series winches offer a low-profile design and a separate control box to fit most vehicles. They have powerful motors; durable, reliable, and smooth three-stage planetary geartrains; and an exclusive brake design for outstanding control while winching. The VR Series winches wear a durable black powder-coated finish for outstanding corrosion protection and unique look. Warn Industries stands behind the VR Series with a Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by its global service organization. Three models make up the VR Series lineup and all are competitively priced:

  • VR8000: 8,000 lb. capacity; 94′ of 5/16″ rope … $399 after $80 rebate
  • VR10000: 10,000 lb. capacity; 94′ of 3/8″ rope ..$499 after $80 rebate
  • VR12000: 12,000 lb. capacity; 94′ of 3/8″ rope ..$599 after $80 rebate

New WARN Ultimate Performance, Premium, and Heavyweight Series Winches
All three WARN winch series feature new styling, electronics, and remote controls. In addition, there’s a new model in the Ultimate Performance Series: The 9.5cti.

The 9.5cti is the next-generation of WARN thermometric winches, and truly offers “Ultimate Performance.” The thermometric technology informs the user of motor temperatures while winching, helping to prolong motor life. The 9.5cti has a 9,500 lb. pulling capacity, fast line speeds, and an exceedingly sturdy integrated control housing with contactor controls for superior durability and reliability. This winch features extreme-duty sealing to keep the elements out, and a gloss-black powdercoated finish to protect it from corrosion.

The “new” doesn’t end with the 9.5cti. Most WARN winches will get the next-generation WARN remote control. This new remote features solid rubber construction for plenty of grip and exceedingly high durability. The ergonomic design fits comfortably in the hand and has large, intuitive controls. This is the most durable, reliable remote Warn Industries has ever offered.

There is new styling in the WARN lineup, too. All low-profile winches (except the 16.5ti and Endurance 12.0) get newly styled control boxes. Plus, all WARN Ultimate Performance, Premium, and Heavyweight Series winches will now have contactor control for increased reliability and durability.

The new line of WARN winches continues the company’s tradition of innovation, dependability, and performance. For more information, visit
