Polaris 2015 Lineup
For 2015, Polaris is expanding its line of Ranger side-by-sides and Sportsman ATVs.
In the Ranger models, Polaris brings features from the line’s flagship vehicle, the Ranger XP 900, down into some of the smaller UTVs.
The Ranger 570, Ranger EV, and Ranger ETX will receive new styling, ergonomics, and incorporate the simple Lock and Ride Pro-Fit cab accessory integration. The accessory integration allows you to simply snap cab components onto the cab frame without tools. According to Polaris, the average farmer spends $2,000 to $3,000 on accessories when purchasing a side-by-side, so the easy-to-use accessory system should be a welcome addition to the smaller Rangers.
In addition, the Ranger 570 gets a 10% power boost, to 44 hp., 20% more towing capacity, now at 1,500 pounds, increased fuel range, more storage, an improved bench seat, and 10-inch tilt steering. The four-passenger Ranger Crew 570 will receive the same updates. The Ranger 570 starts at $9,799.
Three power options are available for the 2015 Rangers: an upgraded 68 hp. Ranger XP 900, the 44 hp. Ranger 570 powered by a ProStar 570 engine with EFI, and the Ranger diesel, now with a three-cylinder, Tier 4 Kohler Diesel Engine.
Polaris is also introducing three new Deluxe Package Ranger XP 900 EPS models: the Ranger XP 900 EPS Vogue Silver Deluxe Edition for the trail, Ranger XP 900 EPS Hunter Deluxe Edition for hunting, and Ranger XP 900 EPS NorthStar Deluxe Edition for cold weather and work. The Ranger XP 900 starts at $13,399.
To the Sportsman line, Polaris is adding power and performance with the Sportsman XP 1000 and Sportsman Touring XP 1000. The vehicles’ 88 hp. ProStar single overhead cam 1,000 twin engine is based upon the proven 850 twin. A new close-ratio, On-Demand, true all-wheel drive system provides improved traction while the EPS makes it easier to steer. For more controlled descents, the units also feature Polaris engine braking system wtith active descent control for better downhill braking. To work harder, the machines have 1,500 pounds towing and 120 pounds of hauling capacity in the front and 240 pounds in the rear with a total of 100 built-in, tie-down points.
The Sportsman XP 1000 starts at $11,999.
In 2014, Polaris introduced the Sportsman Ace – an entirely new off-road vehicle. The vehicle’s architecture features a sit-in chassis that is nimble and comfortable to operate. The design of the new Ace provides a confidence-inspired ride, particularly for less experienced drivers. For 2015, Polaris will add more power to the Ace with the Sportsman Ace 570, which features a 45 hp., liquid-cooled, single-cylinder ProStar 570 engine. The 570 can tow 1,500 pounds and carry 360 pounds – proving it is a fun and hardworking vehicle. The new Ace starts at $8,499.
