Polaris UTV Guide.

The Polaris UTV model line is a result of the sharp increase in demand for utility type vehicles. But no sooner had the Polaris Industries engineers finished their first project, the Ranger, than customers were demanding a sports model. And that new model, the Polaris RZR is it.

So are these two radically different models the best in their respective classes? That's what we plan to find out. We searched high and low for answers. Talked to owners, read the reviews and tests, surfed the net for more hours than I want to admit, and drove 'em ourselves.

polaris-utv-1We cover all the Polaris Ranger and UTV models in our Guide.

So after doing more research than an over achieving school girl. I think we have a pretty good idea about what makes these Polaris UTVs tick. Only thing left to do is dissect 'em like a frog in biology class.

Ranger RZR

Ranger RZR 800 - Technically, the RZR is called a Ranger, but it doesn't really have that much in common with the other Ranger models. It's pretty obvious that the emphasis is heavily on sport, not utility. That's why we have a special report dedicated to the Ranger RZR. The first UTV capable of traveling on 50" restricted trails, this is the best selling of all the Razor models.

Razor S

Polaris UTV Conclusion

So we still have the question. Is a Polaris side by side the best in class? Well, you're gonna have to answer this one yourself. That's the fun thing about this UTV deal, it means something different to everybody. What's important to me may not mean squat to you. All I can say is do your homework, drive all of the candidates on your short list, and be honest with yourself about what you really want a UTV to do. Then all you have to worry about is lightin' the fire and smokin' the tires.
