Polaris RZR XP line was new for 2024 but the brand has already released a slew of updates, upgrades, and changes for the vehicle's 2025 model year. These changes include the styling, colors, screen technology, the expansion of models that feature Ride Command, and more. Better yet, Polaris dropped the price on each model, too. Read on to see what Polaris has changed for its RZR XPs for 2025.

Across the board, all RZR XPs have been given updated colors and graphics. Each machine continues to be powered by Polaris' more-than-healthy 999cc engine that churns out 114 horsepower. The RZR XP line has also been given a chassis that's 25 percent stronger, while available Walker Evans Racing Needle Shocks provide 20.5 inches of usable travel. RZR XPs are also now equipped with mounting and ducting for improved CVT life, and a redesigned driveline improves half shaft strength by 30 percent.

Polaris tinkered with each individual RZR XP trim as well. Sport trim RZR XP 1000s are now available in Storm Gray with Radiant Green accents. All RZR XP 1000 Sport models get 29" tires, LED headlights, a 660 watt charging system, three-point seatbelts, and more. The 2025 RZR XP 1000 Sport starts at $19,999.

Polaris has updated the RZR XP Premium to feature Ride Command, the company's built-in technology that includes goodies like GPS, group ride tracking, and more. The 7-inch screen setup here is a welcome addition. On the design front, Storm Gray is available with Red accents and matching springs. Premium models also swap the 29-inch tires for 30-inchers. The RZR XP 1000 Premium starts at $21,999.

Ultimate trim RZR XPs get a standard 4,500-pound winch and a factory-installed Rockford Fosgate® Stage 3 Audio system which incorporates into the Ride Command screen interface that also features a reverse camera. On the exterior, Storm Gray is now available with Lime accents on the springs, front bumper, and seats, as is Polaris Blue with Orange accents on the same components. A poly roof is also standard on the RZR XP 1000 Ultimate, as is a 900 watt operating system. Pricing for the 2025 RZR XP 1000 Ultimate starts at $24,999.

“Last year, we completely redesigned the RZR XP platform from the ground-up, making it superior in every way possible. Not only does it surpass all previous RZR XP models but it outshines the competition by delivering riders the best in design, performance and technology,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President, Polaris Off Road. “Customers love the redesign we launched last year. For 2025, we’re continuing to highlight what makes this RZR XP platform the No. 1 selling sport side-by-side, while delivering it all at an incredible value to our riders.”

We're big fans of the RZR line and especially the RZR XP, and can't wait to try out the refreshed version in the coming months. Shipments are under way, so keep an eye out for these UTVs in the coming months.
