The Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 S marches on for another year maintaining its place atop the company’s sport-4x4 mountain. Better, its starting MSRP of $17,799 is unchanged from the same sticker price it carried for the last few model years.

Changes to the ATV are limited to a new color. Lifted Lime replaces Radar Blue, the new paint scheme taking the outgoing one’s bright yellow-green accents and adorning the entirety of the machine’s plastics in see-it-from-space chartreuse. Black, red, and white accents now run along the sides of the fenders and the gauge pod as well. The suspension’s a-arms are now also painted bright red, replacing the standard black paint they were coated in prior.

The Scrambler XP 1000 S sees no mechanical changes for 2024. Thankfully, this means that Polaris has kept the Walker Evans Racing three-way adjustable suspension on board, a collaboration that should continue on for quite a bit longer now that Polaris owns Walker Evans Enterprises. This suspension setup helps the Scrambler XP 1000 S to a 55-inch wide stance, 14.5 inches of ground clearance, and 14 inches of rear suspension travel.

No mechanical changes also means the Scrambler XP 1000 S is still powered by the 952cc ProStar twin-cylinder engine which is good for 89 horsepower. All this power is channeled through On-Demand All-Wheel-Drive, which features selectable 2WD/4WD, the latter of which automatically locks the front differential when it senses wheel slip.

Polaris outfits the four-wheeler with other niceties like an 11-inch Pro Armor LED light bar that sits atop the front of the quad as well as adjustable handlebars with 3 inches of vertical range. Multi Select EPS remains present, which allows for selectable modes with varying degrees of assistance.

The 2024 Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 S is on sale now. Visit Polaris’ website or contact a local dealer for more information.
