Polaris produces its millionth Ranger ATV

Published:  13 June, 2018

Polaris has celebrated rolling the one millionth Ranger ATV off the production line – two decades after the utility vehicle was introduced.

In that time the Ranger has been developed with more than 100 user-inspired improvements. Now, the Ranger XP 1000 boasts 82hp and torque of 61lb-ft, towing more than 1100kg and ground clearance of 330mm.

The Ranger XP 1000 features a new one-piece frame providing improved chassis stiffness and a redesigned interior to provide more storage and capability. It also has a tighter turning radius and more precise steering.

Dual-Sweep analogue dials and a 4” LCD Rider Information Centre provide information to the driver, while thicker seat foam provides more comfort. The vehicle also has 51 litres of secure in-cab storage, including a flip-up passenger seat and double glove box.

Rene Basei, Polaris EMEA Vice President, said: ‘Polaris is constantly innovating and looking for ways to improve customer experience.

‘A big part of the development process comes from listening to and integrating customer feedback into new products – the new RANGER XP 1000 is a fantastic example of this.

‘Feedback from those who have tested it has been extremely positive and we’re sure our customers are going to think the same.’
