Polaris Announces New Updates for Popular UTV Models In 2024
After unveiling the biggest and baddest working-class UTV in the industry, new updates were also announced for other popular UTV models.
On the heels of the debut of the Extreme Duty RANGER XD 1500, Polaris unveiled its lineup of other popular 2024 UTV models that are getting upgrades for the new year. From simple add-ons of popular items from the accessory catalog to new suspension packages, the Polaris RZR, General, and RANGER are getting some welcome upgrades that will make many consumers very happy. It's not just the UTVs getting upgrades for the new year either, since the popular Sportsman ATV will get its fair share of upgrades as well.
It's hard not to be a fan of the Polaris General. It's a machine that is capable of taking on tough trails while still being tough enough to handle work duties on your property. For 2024, Polaris focused on the standard 1000cc General by offering it with a new premium trim package. To provide another level of style, performance, and comfort the General 1000 Premium comes equipped with 14" wheels wrapped in 27" Maxxis Coronado tires, FOX® Podium QS3® shocks, and LED headlights complete with accent trim lights and LED taillights. The star of the show is the FOX® shocks, which feature soft, medium, and firm suspension settings that are easily changed with the turn of a knob at each corner to provide a smooth ride over any terrain.
The new General 1000 Premium is only offered in Volcanic Orange, while the standard model is available in Ghost Gray with prices starting at $17,499. If you're looking for even more features than what the General 1000 Premium has to offer, you always have the General XP 1000 lineup that have features like low-profile sport bumpers, larger tires, Rockford Fosgate premium sound systems, and Polaris' signature Ride Command infomation center.

Upgrades for the new year aren't limited to machines as Polaris' RIDE COMMAND+ Information Center also gets improvements for the new year. The system now features location alerts that act as a security of sorts by alerting the owner if the machine has been moved from its last location or bumped in any way, which is an industry first.
