Polaris Rolls Out Ranger XP 900

First are the full-size Ranger XP 900 and XP 900 with electronic power steering (EPS). Both XP 900 versions boast Polaris' 875cc, ProStar 900 engine. Producing 60 hp, the electronic fuel-injected engine delivers smooth power throughout its RPM range because of its dual overhead cam design, 180-degree crank firing order and counterbalancing. The Ranger XP 900 is quieter with the liquid-cooled engine located under the rear cargo box.

The Ranger XP 900 features a new, durable drive train built to handle the unit's higher horsepower. This Ranger can tow 2,000 pounds.

Polaris says the Ranger XP 900 offers the most storage in its class. The new under-seat storage features flip-up access, giving the operator increased storage inside the cab. The cargo box has more tie-down points, box dividers and a gate release. The cargo box has 1,000 pounds of capacity.

Polaris equipped its XP 900 with a high-capacity battery and new stator for 30% more electrical power to run multiple accessories at one time. The unit features a new, easier-to-install winch mount. The Ranger XP 900 and XP 900 EPS has good range on a 10-gallon fuel tank and is sold in Sage Green, Solar Red and Pursuit Camo (XP 900 only). Price: $12,999 and up.

The second new side-by-side is a mid-size Ranger 800 with electronic fuel-injected, 800cc engine. Polaris says this unit offers full-size power in a smaller, two-seater that fits into the back of a pickup truck. The engine produces 50 hp. The operator can put 500 pounds in the cargo box and tow 1,250 pounds. Colors include Sage Green and Pursuit Camo. Price: $10,499 and up.
