By popular demand, Polaris has announced the return of some trim levels and submodels previously dropped from the Ranger and Sportsman lines.

"We are constantly learning from the unique ways customers use our products," said Steve Menneto, President of Polaris Off Road. "From mudding to property maintenance, these vehicles are purpose-built with enhanced features that enable our customers to make the most of their day, and we're excited to bring them back for 2023."

Ranger Crew XP 1000 Texas Edition

Texans are proud of being Texan, and can now wear their heritage proudly on the new Texas Edition of the Ranger Crew XP. This version features special Texas Edition badging, as well as unique colors and graphics.

Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the Texas Edition’s class-leading 2,500 lb towing and 1,000 lb bed capacity, plus a factory-installed 4,500 lb winch with synthetic rope and autostop. It will handle any terrain Texas can throw at it with high clearance arched A-arms and 8-ply 29" Pro Armor tires that provide 14" of ground clearance and durability. Its power extends to the electrical system as well, with high-intensity LED headlights, as well as a new USB port to keep your phone charged.

Polaris hasn’t forgotten about northerners, either. The NorthStar Edition features a fully enclosed cab with crank-down windows to keep you and your passengers out of the elements. A heating and ventilation system also helps keep you cozy on those cold winter mornings, and to warm up after using the Polaris Pro HD 3,500 lb winch with synthetic rope and autostop.

The NorthStar Edition gets new mudguards for 2023 to prevent debris collection under the cab for less clean-up and more durability. It, too, gets new LED lighting and a dashboard USB port.

The High Lifter Edition is made to get dirty. The High Lifter Edition earns its name with 13.5” of ground clearance. It’s optimized for muddy conditions, featuring 30” Outlaw 2 tires and 14” aluminum wheels to offer greater clearance and handling on deep mud, rocks, and trails. High-mount air intakes and clutch ducting allow clean, cool air to enter the engine when traversing mud and water, and the 3,500 lb winch can pull you out if you go in too deep.

These models feature the Polaris Ride Command+ system. This receives key information  including remote vehicle location services, vehicle health monitoring, and more. All of these features are also available in the Polaris App.

Up to 27” Duro Tires and 14” aluminum rims offer greater clearance and handling on the trail to confidently tackle off-road terrain. These models also get new LED headlights, the new Silver Quartz Metallic colorway, plus front bumpers for the ultimate vehicle protection on the trails ahead.

Sportsman 570 Utility HD

Utility is the middle name of this model, and it means it. A utility front bumper with a hitch makes it easy to stash your trailer into tight places, with 1,350 lbs towing capacity. Front and rear metal racks, rated for 270 lbs capacity, give riders extra space to tie down cargo and get around the property. The Utility HD adds a new rear power port plug, making it easier to plug in accessories.
