Polaris Introduces 2013 Line Up
“Polaris’ innovation continues, once again, by creating products that raise the performance and value bar in the off-road industry,” said David Longren, Polaris Off-Road Division’s Vice President and General Manager. “From the hardest working, smoothest riding ATV and RANGER side-by-sides, to the RZR line with the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility, Polaris offers the most-complete line-up of off-road vehicles on the market.”
Polaris RANGER utility vehicles are the Hardest Working, Smoothest Riding Side-by-Sides available in full-size, midsize and multi-passenger models. Back for 2013, the full size RANGER 800 EFI is the standard of Hardest Working, Smoothest Riding but for 2013, Polaris also is defining an all new class of “Hardest Working, Smoothest Riding” with the new, full size RANGER XP 900. The vehicle features a new ProStar 900 engine, all-new chassis, more suspension, new restyled cockpit, new flip-up seat storage, larger gas tank, new Lock & Ride™ PRO-FIT cab accessories, easier serviceability and a quieter ride due to engine repositioning. The RANGER XP 900 will join the RANGER 800 and RANGER Diesel in the full size category.
New to the Midsize line, the RANGER 800 EFI Midsize combines Polaris' reliable 800cc engine with the midsize chassis for a combination that provides Big Bore performance in a smaller, two-seat model that fits in the back of a pickup truck. The RANGER 800 EFI Midsize is perfect for any customer looking for a midsized footprint and price, with full size power. The unit has many of the hardest working, smoothest riding features of its full-sized counterparts: On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive with VersaTrac, Independent Rear Suspension, heavy duty front end protection, high ground clearance and the longest suspension travel in its class. The RANGER 500 EFI, RANGER 400 and RANGER EV round out the midsize offering.
Last year, Polaris added the RANGER CREW Diesel to its multi-passenger offering and will continue to offer the vehicle along with the RANGER CREW 800 and RANGER CREW 500. Polaris also will offer several limited edition models across the full-size, midsize and multi-passenger segments including RANGER XP 900, RANGER 800 EFI, RANGER 800 EFI Midsize, RANGER 500 EFI, RANGER CREW 800 and RANGER CREW 500 models.
The RZR family is only side-by-side line with razor sharp performance for the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility. For Model Year 2012, Polaris launched two vehicles, the new trail-capable RZR 570 featuring the second ProStar engine built specifically for a side-by-side, and this past January, the RZR XP 4 900 which delivers xtreme performance for four. For Model Year 2013, Polaris enhances the RZR lineup again with a new RZR 570 Trail Limited Edition with Electronic Power Steering (EPS), and, for the first time on a RZR, an Engine Braking System (EBS) and Versatrack Turf Mode; a gnarly Walker Evans Limited Edition RZR XP 900; new dual rate springs on the RZR 800 and more upgrades to the RZR family to make the line even more razor sharp. Several RZR XP 900, RZR S 800, RZR 800, RZR 570, RZR XP 4 and RZR 4 800 limited edition models also will be available.
For model year 2012, Polaris added more power on all 850cc Sportsman models and 2013 sees more power added to the Entry/Sport line with the introduction of the new Scrambler XP 850 H.O. in both a sporty Limited Edition package with EPS and Fox Shocks, and a base model. The Scrambler XP 850 H.O. is geared towards riders who want a more power and sportier ride in a four-wheel drive vehicle. The vehicle couples the proven, 77 horsepower, 850 twin, high output EFI engine, Polaris’ exclusive On-Demand, True All-Wheel Drive with a sports tuned suspension and more streamlined design for a sport vehicle that can tackle anything the trail throws its way. For riders wanting even more performance in a 4x4, Polaris is offering a Limited Edition model with Electronic Power Steering (EPS), Fox Podium compression adjustable shocks, cast aluminum wheels, hand guards, cut and sew seat, dual LED headlights and Stealth Black paint with a sportier graphics package. The new Scrambler XP 850 H.O. rounds out the Entry/Sport line which includes the Trail Boss 330, Trail Blazer 330 and Phoenix 200.
