Polaris ATVs and UTVs – Models, Prices, Specs and Reviews

Polaris ATVs and UTVs

After 30 years of building snowmobiles, the first Polaris ATVs began showing up on dealer floors in 1985, throwing a wrench in an industry that up to that point was completely dominated by Japanese brands. Not only were these 1985 models the first Polaris ATVs…they were the first American-made ATVs.

The first Polaris ATVs were the four-wheeled Trail Boss 250 and the three-wheeled Scrambler 250. The Trail Boss was equipped with MacPherson strut front suspension, which Polaris continues to use to this day.

Polaris ATVs have pushed the boundaries ever since and the brand saw huge success with the venerable Sportsman 500 and its innovative front storage system. But when most people think of Polaris, the first thing that comes to mind is the RZR. The first ever Sport-UTV was released for the 2008 model year and it has completely changed the industry with innovations and power increases coming at a breakneck pace.
