To keep the ride smooth from the barn to the fields, the 570 full-size features adjustable independent rear suspension (IRS). This new model retails for $9,999.
Other additions to the Ranger line include a three-seat mud riding machine, two-seat lithium-ion powered UTV, and a two-seat hunt-ready Ranger 570 EPS.
The Ranger line will receive more power. The Ranger Crew 900 models will now have 68 hp. and the Ranger XP 570 and Ranger Crew 570-6 will get boosted to 46 hp. For maximum power delivery to the ground, the Ranger XP 900 EPS and Crew 900 are now equipped with Pro-Lock On-Demand All-Wheel Drive.
The Sportsman line is adding three new models, including two designed to tackle the mud.
For the entry-level consumer, Polaris is introducing the Sportsman 450 H.O. with a starting price of $5,999. The Sportsman features the smooth, reliable ProStar engine delivering 31 hp.

Improvements to the existing models include 50% stronger front half shafts and improved driveline on all 850- and 1000-cc. machines. Sportsman 450 H.O. and 570-cc. models will feature a new seat with a comfortable foam base, more powerful 660-watt stator to run more accessories, and added exhaust pipe shielding. The full line of Sportsman and Scrambler vehicles also receive a high capacity, high flow air filter for improved air flow and dust filtration.
