POLARIS SPORTSMAN XP 850/1000 HIGH LIFTER
For mud fans, Polaris teamed up with High Lifter to
bring two full-on deep divers to the 2017 lineup. They both
have lower gearing, snorkel kits for surviving deep muck
and front-rack-relocated radiators to reduce debris getting
lodged in them. The XP 1000 has sturdy front and rear
bumpers, high-clearance suspension and a 3500-pound
POLARIS SPORTSMAN XP 1000 ($11,999)
The Sportsman XP 1000 has a powerful 88-horsepower
ProStar, twin-cylinder engine and On-Demand all-wheel
drive. Power steering comes standard on this powerhouse,
and independent suspension softens the ride up front and
in the rear of the machine. Cast-aluminum wheels come
standard on this ATV as well.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN 850/850 SP ($8,799/$10,299)
Polaris’ Sportsman 850 and 850 SP are strong 4x4 contenders. A true 850cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder powerplant makes 78 horsepower—plenty for sane people! Both
get the revised bodywork with deeper, longer footwells.
The SP gets body paint, cast wheels, factory mud flares
and, of course, power steering and Active Descent Control.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN 570 /570 EPS/570 SP ($6,699/$8,699)
Polaris has a herd of the popular 570 4x4 models in a
variety of colors. All share a 44-horsepower, liquid-cooled
ProStar engine, but they are also different. Only the SP
version comes with Active Descent Control and an engine
braking system. Power steering and aluminum wheels are
also standard features on the SP model of the 570.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN 450/570 EPS UTILITY EDITION
Polaris caters to customers who use an ATV for work
with two Metallic Maroon utility models. They feature steel
racks with recessed areas for carrying buckets, special
front bumpers with a front hitch to match the rear hitch.
Only the 570 has EPS and a new variable low-speed limiter (set 7–14 mph for spraying, mowing or other work).
POLARIS SPORTSMAN 450 H.0./450 H.0. EPS
In addition to the Sportsman 450 H.O. Utility Edition,
Polaris makes a standard 450 H.O. and a 450 H.O. EPS. The
on-demand AWD works quite well with the CVT transmission and 31-horsepower ProStar engine. It has front and
rear independent suspension and disc brakes. There is no
Active Descent Control, but it doesn’t really need it.
