Polaris Introduces 2013 Line Up
For the past five years, Polaris has aggressively launched new products, evolved its off-road offerings and became No. 1 in the off-road industry with one of the best and most-innovative ATV and Side-by-Side offerings available. For model year 2013, Polaris will continue to innovate by introducing three new vehicles and making significant upgrades to existing products.
“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.
