Polaris Sportsman All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) are known as the hardest working, smoothest riding ATVs on the market. For Model Year 2015, the Sportsman line adds six new members, and redefines its premium and value offerings.

New to the Premium Line for 2015, and leading the Big Bore category in power and performance, are the Sportsman XP 1000 and Sportsman Touring XP 1000. Based on the revolutionary XP chassis, the Sportsman XP 1000 and Sportsman Touring XP 1000 offer the smoothest, most-refined ride in the industry coupled with the highest performance in their classes. The vehicles’ 88 horsepower ProStar single overhead cam 1000 twin engine is based upon the proven 850 twin. A new high-performance close-ratio, On-Demand, true AWD system provides improved traction while the EPS makes it easier to muscle over anything that stands in the way. For more controlled descents, the units also feature Polaris’ Engine Braking System (EBS) with Active Descent Control (ADC) to control downhill braking for optimal control and smooth, even deceleration to all four wheels. For a smoother ride on the Sportsman Touring XP 1000, the unit features an improved driver and passenger seat with more contour and bolstering for increased passenger comfort and security. To work harder, the units feature the highest pulling and towing power at 1,500 lbs./680.4 kg and biggest rack capacity at 120 lbs./54.4 kg front and 240 lbs./108.9 kg. rear with a total of 100 built-in, tie-down points to ensure plenty of room to carry extra cargo. The units also feature a Polaris HD 2500 lb/1133 kg winch and plow accessory integration to get the job done quicker and easier, and a new headlight pod with improved visibility to instrumentation for easier operation.

For Model Year 2015, Polaris expands the 500 class by adding two premium models, the Sportsman 570 SP and Sportsman Touring 570 SP. Based on the same legendary Sportsman platform as the Sportsman 570 and Sportsman Touring 570, the Sportsman 570 SP and Sportsman Touring 570 SP feature several upgraded refinements found on premium model ATVs. The vehicles’ Double A-Arm Front Suspension has optimized geometry for the vehicles’ standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and feature 8.25 in/20.96 cm of travel to reduce rider fatigue even in the harshest trail conditions. To maneuver the toughest of terrain, the high-performance, close ratio, On-Demand, True All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System provides improved traction by engaging faster than ever when power to all four wheels is needed. The EBS with ADC assist in braking on steep inclines when no throttle is being applied for a more controlled ride.

To work harder, the vehicles have a 660W high output electrical system to run more accessories, a new headlight pod with improved visibility to instrumentation, plus they also boast an unmatched level of winch and plow integration that makes adding the most popular ATV accessories even easier. To look good while cruising down the trail or working on the farm, the Sportsman 570 SP and Touring 570 SP feature durable, automotive-style paint, cast aluminum 14 in/35.6 cm rims with 26 in/66.04 cm Maxxis tires.

Joining the Value 2-Up 500 class is the new Sportsman X2 570 which features the same chassis as the Sportsman Touring 570 EPS only with a versatile, flip up second seat that doubles as a 400 lb/180 kg dump box. To maneuver tough terrain, the high performance, close-ratio, On Demand AWD provides improved traction. To conquer steep slopes easily, the unit features EBS with ADC to control downhill braking and provide even deceleration to all four wheels during descents. The unit also features EPS to reduce rider fatigue to work harder, longer.

Also new to the Value Line for 2015 is the Sportsman ETX, the first Sportsman with EFI retailing under $6,000 U.S. The Sportsman ETX also sports the Sportsman 570 chassis but with a smaller and lower profile for improved ease of mount and dismount, and improved ergonomics for additional comfort when riding. At the heart of the Sportsman ETX is a 30 horsepower, Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI) ProStar engine featuring an internal counter-balance shaft for smooth, vibration-free power. The dual overhead camshafts and a 4-valve cylinder head work with the advanced engine management system to precisely deliver the fuel charge for impressive power and instant, predictable throttle response; while the lightweight efficient transmission captures every ounce of power to deliver it to the ground. The addition of EFI on this entry-level model ensures easy starting, improved run quality and elevation compensation to ensure reliability normally found on more expensive models. The unit also features winch and plow integration making it easier to add these accessories when needed.

Launched in January 2014, the Sportsman ACE defined an entirely-new type of off-road vehicle. The vehicle’s architecture features a revolutionary, sit-in chassis that is nimble and comfortable to operate. The design of the new Sportsman ACE provides a confidence inspired ride, all while being trail-capable, offering an all-new off-road experience.

For 2015, Polaris will expand the Sportsman ACE due to the popularity of the model, and offer it in White Lightning and Sage Green. Additionally, a new model is being introduced, the Sportsman ACE 570. The Sportsman ACE 570 has all the features of the original Sportsman ACE with the addition of more power provided by a 45 horsepower, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder Pro-Star 570 engine delivering smooth, efficient power. The Sportsman ACE 570 offers grin-producing acceleration on the trail and works hard with its
capable On-Demand AWD, High/Low transmission, 360 lb/164 kg payload capacity and 1500 lb/682 kg towing capacity. Polaris’ Youth line up will include two 2015 ATV youth models, the Phoenix 200 and Outlaw 50, and two 2014 Youth ATV models, the Outlaw 90 and Sportsman 90, based upon the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America’s (SVIA) Youth ATV categories. Polaris also will offer the RZR 170 as a 2014 model which is compliant to the SVIA standard. Polaris Engineered Accessories will have a wide variety of accessories available for ATV, RANGER and RZR vehicles.

Polaris Replaces RZR 800 and RZR S with new 2015 RZR 900 and RZR S 900

2015 Polaris RZR 900 Family
2015 Polaris RZR 900 Family

Polaris RZR® is the No. 1 brand of sport side-by-sides, outselling its nearest competitor by leaps and bounds. That’s because RZR relentlessly innovates, offering the very best lineup for every type of off-road sport riding. Owning a RZR has become more than enjoying the dunes, desert or trail, it is a community of owners who share the RZR lifestyle due to their passion for not only off-roading but the ultimate experiences RZR provides. Model year 2015 brings the launch of RZR’s biggest line-up ever with all-new products and significant innovations to every single segment, for every type of riding to continue to fuel the RZR lifestyle.

For trail riders, RZR goes back to its roots and redefines the first two RZR products ever introduced with the new 2015 RZR 900 and RZR S 900. These vehicles feature unequalled power, highly-capable suspensions, unmatched agility and revolutionary ergonomics and styling.

2015 Polaris RZR 900
2015 Polaris RZR 900

At the heart of the RZR 900 and RZR S 900 is a 75 horsepower ProStar® 900 engine offering improved power-to-weight ratio and faster acceleration. The new ProStar power plants offer more than 40 percent more horsepower and15 percent more torque than the previous RZR 800 models. Polaris’ ProStar engines have become the pinnacle of performance engines for RZR due to their efficiency, acceleration and durability. For more power to the ground, the vehicles also feature the extremely durable RZR XP transmission which is specifically geared to optimize the power of the engine.

For trails that are width-restricted to 50 in/127 cm, the RZR 900 features a highly-capable, Dual A-Arm Rear Front and Rear Suspension with 11 in/27.94 cm of ground clearance*, and 10 in/25.4 cm front and rear travel to overtake any obstacles thrown in its way. The 26 in/66 cm PXT tires are Polaris-proven and provide all the traction needed even for the toughest trail. The vehicles are more razor sharp through the corners thanks to the optimized track width. Optimization comes from maximizing the track width while maintaining the overall width. For all other trails, the RZR S 900 has an unrivaled suspension featuring a Dual A-Arm Front and Rear Suspension with 12.25 in/31.11 cm front, 13.2 in/33.5 cm rear suspension travel and 12.5 in/31.75 cm of ground clearance. Outfitted with new, eight-ply, 27 in/68.58 cm GBC Dirt Commander Tires that offer better side bite, stiffer sidewalls, better tracking through corners and increased durability, the RZR S 900 won’t let anything stand in its way.

2015 Polaris RZR S 900
For unmatched agility, Polaris utilized a few features found on the RZR XP 1000 to ensure the RZR 900 and RZR S 900 perform at their finest whether they are dodging trees on the trail or navigating through gnarly switchbacks. While all RZR vehicles are equipped with On-Demand True All Wheel Drive (AWD), Polaris utilizes its High-Performance AWD on the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and 900 Trail models to keep the front wheels pulling stronger and longer maximizing power delivery to the ground in every condition for a more responsive ride. Both units also feature a narrow turning radius to navigate curvy trails and a 20 percent faster steering response. With an improved two-turn, lock-to-lock steering ratio, it’s easy to keep your hands on the steering wheel while navigating around any obstacle or hairpin turn encountered on the trail. The units’ ultra-rigid, tubular chassis also provides substantial improvements in stiffness and durability, and complement the all new suspensions. The trail capable 50 in/127 cm width and 79 in/200.7 cm wheelbase is the perfect combination to ensure the RZR 900 is responsive and agile on the trail, and the standard Engine Braking System (EBS), EPS and Turf mode available on the RZR 900 Trail Editions provide the most agile, controlled ride whether traversing mountain sides or running down your favorite forest trail. The RZR S 900’s 60 in/152.4 cm width and 79 in/200.7 cm wheelbase provides an incredibly stable footprint for riding in wide-open spaces while the EPS-equipped units make sure the vehicle takes the brunt of what that space has to offer.

For 2014, the RZR XP 1000 was launched with revolutionary ergonomics and styling and for 2015, the new RZR 900 and RZR S 900 also feature many of the same, unique features. The newly-designed seats offer improved bolstering and 100 percent more hip cushioning for a more secure feel, and feature a new thin-film technology under the cover for a drier ride in wet conditions. The driver-side seat slider on the Limited Edition models allow for tool-less, on-the-ready seat adjustment along with additional leg room, and space-optimized dead pedals for both the driver and passenger make for a more secure ride. The driver also will appreciate a new, stiffer steering wheel designed for comfort and a more responsive feel. The vehicles also feature factory-installed quarter doors for extra protection from debris, and easier ingress and egress. For improved adjustability, the units feature the innovative, flow-through tongue seat belt design that is easier to adjust and retract. The sealed belt retractor housing ensures the belts will endure through the nastiest conditions. To stay on the trail longer, the vehicles sport a larger 9.5 gal/36 L fuel tank.

Inside the cockpit, the units feature LED floor lighting and a slick blue back-lighted instrument cluster, readable both in direct sunlight and at night. To take more stuff along, a large center storage area and a bigger glove box with new latch provide ample space for any items needed during the ride while the deeper rear box provides ample space for additional cargo.

Sealed floor seams and equipment pass-throughs keep the occupants cleaner; while dual removable floor drains allow for easier clean out of the cabin.

The RZR 900 and RZR S 900 are even easier to service due to the ease of access of the major components. The air filter, spark plugs and oil fill are now located under the removable box panel in the cargo box of the vehicle while a panel between the seats houses the dipstick and oil filter, and is accessible without removing the seats. The vehicles feature an integrated transmission with only one check/fill point and grease zerks for both the inboard and outboard bushings of the A-arms. To add electric accessories easier, the vehicles feature a terminal block for wiring under the hood and a bigger battery with 44 Amp-hours of capacity and 575 cold-cranking amps.

RZR enthusiasts love to accessorize their vehicles and the RZR 900 and RZR S 900 feature integrated accessory mounting locations, hidden wire routing areas within the cab frame and more than 130 accessories for more customization.

The purpose-built vehicle chassis is exclusively engineered for Polaris accessories. With integrated mounting points situated along the vehicle frame and pass-through areas for routing wires, accessories can be attached with minimal installation time.

Additions, such as rock sliders and bumpers, easily attach and fit securely to the vehicle’s frame due to Polaris’ innovative Lock & Ride® Expanding Anchor; a revolutionary piece of hardware that expands as it is inserted into a mounting point. Lock & Ride® windshields, rear panels, roofs and doors work seamlessly with each other and install directly onto designated mounting points, making installation simple, and providing superior fit and finish.

RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Edition
Introduced for Model Year 2014, the RZR XP 1000 and RZR XP 4 1000 brought significant innovations to each of the hallmark Power, Suspension and Agility aspects of RZR, while adding a new level of interior comfort and accessory customization. The vehicles were built for the pinnacle of performance with an all-new Polaris ProStar 1000 engine that provided an industry leading 107 horsepower with a true 999ccs of displacement, making it the most powerful and largest engine in its class. 

2015 Polaris RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Edition

New for 2015,RZR is introducing its first mud machine, the new RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Edition, built for the true mud rider. To tackle the mud, Polaris took the vehicle’s massive power from the ProStar 1000 and reduced the gearing for more mud specific torque and added a heavy-duty reverse chain. To ensure the power plant breathes, the unit features high engine air and clutch intakes and outlet which are essential for reliable performance. The redesigned front axles, stiffer suspension springs, higher-clearance lower A-Arms and radius rods, mud-specific Walker Evans shocks, 29.5 in/74.93 cm High Lifter Outlaw II tires and standard EPS provide a suspension and handling that will excel in the mud. Polaris also equipped the vehicle with lower half doors, 4,500 lb/2041.17 kg winch with synthetic rope and integrated in-dash switches, rear-view mirror and a specially designed brushguard that provides higher access to the included winch.

For added protection from muddy conditions and easier cleaning, the vehicle sports an improved drainage skid plate, custom powder-coated chassis, and sealed switches, fuse box and battery to ensure optimal protection for vital components. The sharp High Lifter graphics kit is an endorsement from one of the leaders in mud riding and ensures the High Lifter Edition is all business in the bog. The RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Edition offers all these premium mud features and accessories for a MSRP of $23,499, less than what it would cost to add them individually, and can go from the showroom to that favorite mud hole in a matter of minutes.
