Polaris has rolled out the latest model in its Pro XD utility task vehicle (UTV) lineup: a new gas-powered vehicle available as a two-seat 2000G AWD with a payload of up to 1,900 lbs. and a four-seat 4000G AWD with a payload of up to 2,075 lbs. These models join the current diesel-powered lineup.
One key highlight of the Pro XD is maneuverability, which allows it to access locations where cars, trucks, and vans can’t operate. Applications include urban and off-road patrol; search and rescue; movement of key public safety, medical, and other personnel; and distribution of food, water, ice, medicine, and other supplies, including personal protective equipment — especially relevant now due to the COVID-19 virus.
“Polaris is dedicated to public safety and government organizations and this unprecedented situation doesn’t change that — our sales and support lines remain open and we are making a significant allotment of Polaris’ national UTV inventory immediately available to ensure you have the vehicle solutions you need,” said Jed Leonard, vice president, Polaris Government and Defense.
Made to Increase Productivity
Similar to its diesel counterparts, the new Pro XD gas models provide seating capacity of up to four individuals, payload up to 2,075 lbs., and towing capacity of 2,500 lbs. Designed for work across various jobsite terrains and factory shipped at 26 mph, the gas-powered models are ideal for increasing jobsite capabilities within the sectors of municipalities, utilities, and emergency response.
The Pro XD is equipped with heavy-duty components, such as puncture-resistant seats and tires; commercial-grade wear components and heavy-duty suspension; a Polaris Pro-Star 1000 cc gas engine; easy-install accessories; common size, non-directional tires; and easy maintenance access points. A large alternator and easily accessible busbar allows for quick installation of electronics such as beacon lights and PA systems.
All Pro XD models provide added safety features to comply with jobsite rules and regulations. Safety components include operator warnings, highly visible colors, improved sightlines for greater visibility, operator horn and pedestrian alarms, and minimized dust ingestion within the sealed cab.
Additionally, the new gas models are designed with a tamper-proof digital speed calibration, allowing the operator to quickly adjust the vehicle’s speed to as low as 15 mph to comply with varying jobsite speed limit requirements.
