Polaris Unveils Ranger Crew 900-6, ACE 570 SP and RZR 170 EFI
By tweaking three existing models, Polaris has added three more machines to its 2015 off-road lineup – the Ranger Crew 900-6, ACE 570 SP and RZR 170 EFI.
Ranger Crew 900-6
To accommodate multi-passenger customers who are looking to haul more people, Polaris has built the new Ranger Crew 900-6. This UTV has all the same features as the Ranger Crew 900 with an additional seating space in the front row. This was accomplished by replacing the center console and bumps overall capacity to six.
Shared features with the five-passenger Ranger Crew 900-6 include the 60-horsepower ProStar 900 engine, big towing and payload capacity, ample storage and accessory integration with the Pro-Fit cab system.
The Ranger Crew 900-6 will be available in Sage Green. Electronic Power Steering (EPS) models include Sunset Red, White Lightning and Polaris Pursuit Camo.
ACE 570 SP
Polaris first took the covers off the original Sportsman ACE in January of this year, but already has added to this unique platform. The latest addition to the ACE family is the ACE 570 SP. This ACE adds electronic power steering (EPS) and electronic engine braking (EBS). Interestingly, it looks as though Polaris has dropped the “Sportsman” name from the ACE lineup.
Polaris’ EPS system comes with Variable Assist for easier steering at low speeds. As for the EBS system, Polaris says it offers optimum control and smooth, even deceleration as it controls braking directly from the engine.
“These two new features found on the ACE 570 SP work in tandem to provide even more comfort, capability and confidence,” Polaris says in a release.
The ACE 570 SP will be available in Black Pearl Premium Paint with 12 in cast aluminum wheels and a cut-and-sew, adjustable seat.
The RZR 170 is the only side-by-side vehicle available for youth riders. For Model Year 2015, Polaris is adding EFI for easier starting, improved idle quality, smooth throttle response and improved speed limiting.
The RZR 170 EFI will continue to include a wide variety of safety features such as an adjustable throttle limiter to enable adults to set a maximum speed control limit, daytime running lights to increase daytime visibility, full floorboards, seatbelts, color-coded pedals, parking brake and side nets. It will be available in Indy Red and Voodoo Blue.
The Ranger Crew 900-6 in Sage Green and Polaris Pursuit Camo, Polaris ACE 570 SP and RZR 170 EFI will be available at Polaris dealerships nationwide starting in November. The additional Ranger Crew 900-6 EPS colors will be available in January.
