2019 Polaris ATV and UTV Lineup Unveiled
The 2019 Polaris ATV and UTV lineup looks awfully familiar to the 2018 offerings, though we did find a few surprises with the new model year introduction.
Polaris RZR S4 1000
The four-seat RZR S4 gets bumped from the 900 class to the 1000 class. The 2019 Polaris RZR S4 1000 boasts 100 horsepower. Polaris is calling it “the highest performing trail-ready recreational side-by-side” in the industry. Prices for the new RZR S4 1000 start at $19,999.
Polaris RZR Xtreme Performance Lineup
For 2019 Polaris gave the Xtreme Performance RZR family a facelift.
“The 2019 RZR Xtreme Performance machines are cut more aggressively with a chiseled muscular stance, wicked LED accent lights and brand-new LED headlights,” Polaris says in a release.
Polaris also added more storage in the cockpit, along with premium digital instrumentation. You can also get Dynami active suspension and Ride Command on select models. Dynamix was previously only available on XP Turbo models and is what Polaris calls “the world’s only off-road suspension smart enough to continuously adjust the shocks on the fly.” Prices start at $17,999.
Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS High Lifter Edition
Available in both three-seat and six-seat Crew configurations, the Ranger XP 1000 EPS High Lifter Edition models are purpose built to tackle the mud. Each model is equipped with factory-installed and redesigned half doors with one-inch water drains, 82 horsepower engine, 11 inches of suspension travel, 20% increase in overall driveline strength, new geared reverse transmission, 28-inch Outlaw 2 tires, arched A-arms, and 13.5 inches of ground clearance. The three-seat version starts at $19,999, while the six-seat Crew model is available for $21,499.
Polaris Rangers with Ride Command
Polaris has made Ride Command technology available as a factory-installed package for the 2019 Ranger XP 1000 EPS and Ranger XP 1000 EPS NorthStar Edition models. “The seven-inch glove-touch display features built-in navigation and front and rear cameras,” says Polaris. “The system provides vehicle diagnostics, allows smartphone connectivity and factory-installed in-dash speakers. A topographical map allows consumers to better navigate trail overlays and drop waypoints to remember key locations such as a campsite or deer stand. An interactive interface gives every type of rider the freedom to stay connected while hunting, working on their ranch, or trail riding.” The Ranger XP 1000 EPS Ride Command retails for $17,999, while the NorthStar Edition Ride Command starts at $25,999. Both are available in four new color options including Steel Blue, Pearl White, Magnetic Gray and Polaris Pursuit Camo.
Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS 20th Anniversary Limited Edition
Polaris is celebrating two decades of Ranger history with the Ranger XP (and XP Crew) 1000 EPS 20th Anniversary Limited Edition models. These anniversary models will feature a special two-tone maroon and tan color option and custom embroidered seats. Prices start at $16,799.
The General family is largely unchanged for 2019, but you will find the first-ever factory-installed bronze wheels on the Ride Command Edition. Polaris General prices start at $16,299.
The only changes to Polaris Sportsman lineup for 2019 are new colors on premium Sportsman 450 and 570 models, along with improved electric power steering on all EPS models.
