Ranger

Starting with the Ranger lineup, Polaris has introduced a new flagship Ranger XP 1000. Some of the features of the new Ranger XP 1000 include a new clutch and driveline with the strongest belt ever offered on a Ranger. New under-hood air intakes help for increased air flow, while less friction helps to improve efficiency. The 1000cc engine makes 82 horsepower and can now tow up to 2,500 pounds.

The new Ranger 1000 sits on a new chassis which is stiffer and alows for 11 inches of suspension travel, a 10-percent increase over previous models. New 27-inch tires are available, offering 13 inches of ground clearance. A larger dump box out back, full underbody skid plates and all the hook ups for a plow, lighting and a winch are all standard. Slightly more room has also been created for occupants in the cab.

The new Ranger XP 1000 EPS will sell for $15,299.

Polaris RZR

The big news for the RZR is the addition of the DYNAMIX Edition model, which packs actively adjusting suspension. The FOX shocks evaluate up to 200 inputs from the ground and from the driver every second and can then adjust its stiffness depending on the situation.

For the Polaris General, little has changed for 2018, though there is a new military-inspired special edition, finished with a military graphic over a matte sagebrush green paint. It also comes with cut and sew leather-like seats and a Lock and Ride Tip-Down Headache Rack. There is also new adjustable Fox Podium X 2.0 QS3 shocks on the General 4 1000 EPS.

The Polaris General 1000 EPS starts at $16,299.

Ace

The Polaris Ace continues to offer the single seat experience to those who want the UTV feel, and it has been lightly updated for 2018. The brand has an all-new 570 EPS model which now has dual A-arm suspension, quarter doors, and an integrated and removable storage bin. For all Ace models, Polaris has designed new mud flaps, a new stainless steel muffler, a seat slider and an accessory-ready 4-point harness.

Polaris is also bringing the Ace to kids with the new Ace 150 EFI youth model. Meant for riders 10 and older, the new Ace 150 offers four parent-adjustable speed-limit modes, from 10 mph up to 29 mph.

The base Ace 500 will sell for $6,999, while the 2018 Ace 900 XC sells for $12,999.

 

Sportsman

Polaris has lightly updated its utility ATV, the Sportsman, as well for 2018. The machine gets 50-percent stronger half shafts and joints, providing increased durability. Improved rear-wheel bearing seals have also been added, along with new clutching and belt alignment for easier shifting and softer engine braking. The side panels on the ATV have been changed to make it more comfortable and smoother. A new digital guage cluster is the final upgrade, bringing more brightness, larger numbers and two color options: blue or red.

The basic Sportsman 450 H.O. will sell for $5,999, while a loaded Sportsman XP 1000 High Lifter Edition sells for $13,999.
