If you want a North American UTV
that’s priced like something from Asia,
there’s the Ranger ETX, with 31 horsepower and a price of $8699.
Polaris gave the big Ranger XP 900
more power this year, now boasting 68
horsepower. The 570 version also gets a
10-percent horsepower boost, and even
the diesel has a new Kohler motor.
with the ETX motor, which makes 30
horsepower in this configuration. It
has the same MacPherson strut chassis as the original 570, but will sell for
just under $6000. The carbureted 400
is now gone.
Almost everything in the Sportsman
and Ranger lines (aside from the ETXs
and the Ace) is available in a multiple-passenger version. The Touring
models of the quads have passenger seats and are available for a
$700 to $1300 premium, depending on
the model. The Crew versions of the
Rangers will generally run you about
$1200 more. The RZR 1000 4 is available for $22,299, but the four-seat 900
is still under wraps. For now, the 2014
RZR 4 800 is still available for $15,999.
The youth line is alive and well.
There are five models for kids, ranging from the $2099 Outlaw 50 to the
$4399 RZR 170. And finally, Polaris still
has a taste for alternative fuels. The
Ranger EV electric two-seater is back,
as are diesel versions of the Ranger
and Sportsman in both standard and
multiple-passenger variations. For
