The 2019 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 Premium is loaded with premium features designed to make this Utility ATV ready for anything you can throw its way.

Polaris released its updated big bore ATV lineup, which includes a new flagship – the 2019 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 Premium.

The entire Sportsman 850 and 1000 series of ATVs received some key changes. Among the new updates is a new battery that Polaris boasts is the largest in the industry. According to Polaris, the new battery delivers 25% more cold cranking amps and offers up 67% larger reserve power.

Also new is an improved drive chain, clutch upgrades, and high-output electric power steering. The big bore Sportsman ATVs also now offer 12 inches of ground clearance.

The new 2019 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 Premium takes things a step further with a host of upgrades. Chief among them is a 3,500-pound winch. The winch is nestled into what Polaris calls the “Ultimate” front bumper, which is constructed of high-strength steel to boost protection to the front end of the ATV.

Look to the back of the Sportsman XP 1000 Premium to find even more upgrades, including a new steel bumper and a third LED taillight for added visibility. And to add a premium look, Polaris outfitted the ATV with cut-and-sew seats.

Finally, connecting the Sportsman to the ground are new 27-inch Duro Powergrip tires (27 x 9 front, 27 x 11 rear), which are wrapped around 14-inch aluminum wheels.

Other Features

As you would expect, the 2019 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 Premium carries over plenty of features and technology from the rest of the Sportsman family, including the powerful 952cc two-cylinder that produces a claimed 90hp.
