Polaris has introduced the all-new Ranger XP 1000 utility vehicle for the 2018 model-year. The vehicle features a ProStar 1000 engine tuned to produce a class-leading 82 hp matched with an all-new clutch and redesigned driveline.

The large-ratio clutch provides low-speed drivability and features the strongest belt ever offered on a Ranger. Additionally, redesigned under-hood air intakes and a new clutch cover provide increased air flow for cooler, longer-lasting belt life. Improved driveline geometry produces less friction for increased efficiency and a quieter ride. The Ranger XP 1000 produces 25% more towing capacity for an industry-leading 2,500 lbs.

A more-rigid, one-piece chassis increases stiffness and reduces flex for a stronger, more durable machine and improved ride. The industry-leading 11 inches of suspension travel represents a 10% increase for a smoother ride. New 27-inches tires with cast aluminum rims provide a taller stance and an industry-leading 13 inches of ground clearance — an 8.3% increase.

For precision handling, the vehicle has a reduced steering ratio and provides a tighter turning radius, and the new, front sway bar offers a more responsive ride and improved maneuverability. Low-speed clutch engagement provides a smooth ride and more control when loading, unloading, hooking up a trailer, or navigating tight terrain. Nnow standard on all Ranger XP 1000 vehicles, the Polaris engine braking system (EBS) ensures smooth, controlled descents on steep inclines with or without a load. The vehicle also features Three-Mode Throttle Control with Performance, Standard, and Work modes.

The vehicle features 5 inches more clearance for easier entry and exit, more leg room, and cushioned seats. Class-leading storage features include a 3.4-gallon in-dash tray and large double glove boxes. The flip-up passenger seat maximizes interior configurability for holding cargo.

New for model-year 2018, the entire Ranger lineup comes standard with a one-year factory warranty.
