As part of RZR’s continuing innovation and commitment to its enthusiasts, Polaris is announcing several new models featuring new paint schemes and graphics, and a new RZR XP 1000 EPS model with the first-ever Internal Bypass Shocks available on a side-by-side.
The new RZR XP 1000 EPS FOX Edition is hands-down, the best performing suspension ever offered on a sport Side by Side, featuring highly-tuned FOX Podium® Internal Bypass Shocks, re-tuned coil-over springs, new front stabilizer bar and softer rear bar. The vehicle offers the next generation of suspension innovation that takes Razor Sharp Performance to a whole new level.
The new FOX Podium® Internal Bypass Shocks found on the RZR XP 1000 EPS FOX Edition generates highly-progressive damping that gives the vehicle a plush ride with all the bottom-out resistance expected from an ultra-performance off-road vehicle. The shocks have large diameter bodies (3 in/7.6 cm rear, 2.5 in/6.4 cm front), reservoirs and increased fluid capacity for dramatic improvements in heat dissipation, fade resistance and durability. The internal bypass technology offers more zones than a conventional shock for better tenability and performance for the smoothest ride available on a side-by-side and better handling over a wider range of terrain at any speed.
To complement the new shock package, Polaris outfitted the RZR XP 1000 EPS FOX Edition with redesigned coil-over springs. The progressive rate upper spring is a lighter-weight spring that absorbs small impacts while the stiffer, main spring maintains ground clearance and absorbs bigger impacts in rough terrain.
The RZR XP 1000 EPS FOX Edition also is the first RZR XP to feature a front sway bar and also has a redesigned rear sway bar with 25 percent less stiffness. Combined with the FOX Podium Internal Bypass Shocks, the sway bars dramatically decrease body roll and improve vehicle handling and comfort.
Along with the new suspension package, the RZR XP 1000 EPS FOX Edition features Matte Turbo Silver paint, cut and sew seats, new graphics package, innovative 6-Point harnesses and the Polaris Interactive Digital Display which is an integrated, industry-leading LCD display and gauge with full-featured GPS, mapping capability and compass. The display also features integrated Bluetooth functionality and shows the speedometer, tachometer, dual trip meters, odometer and maintenance warnings along with a digital clock, and operating conditions including fuel level and diagnostics.
The RZR XP 1000 EPS FOX Edition will be available in dealerships starting in February 2015.
Polaris introduced one of the biggest RZR line-ups ever and continued to fuel the RZR lifestyle by offering the widest variety of vehicles for every type of sport riding. With the introduction of the new 2015 RZR 900 and RZR S 900, Polaris redefined the first two RZR products ever built by providing the vehicles with unequalled power, highly-capable suspensions, unmatched agility, and revolutionary ergonomics and styling.
To continue RZR’s tradition of offering the most-complete line-up of sport side-by-sides, Polaris is introducing the new RZR 4 900 EPS, one of the most versatile, multi-passenger side-by-sides available.
Whether you ride in the trail or desert, the RZR 4 900 EPS delivers a multi-passenger option that can tackle a wide variety of terrains at a lower price than a premium model. The vehicle shares many of the same attributes as the RZR S 900; 75 horsepower, ProStar® 900 EFI engine, Dual A-Arm Front and Rear Suspension, High-Performance All Wheel Drive (AWD), 60 in/152.4 cm width, revolutionary ergonomics and styling, and accessory integration; with a 106.5 in/270.5 cm wheelbase that accommodates two more passengers so more family and friends can experience the RZR lifestyle.
At the heart of the RZR 4 900 EPS is a 75 horsepower ProStar® 900 engine offering 40 percent more power than the legendary RZR 4 800 model it replaces. Polaris’ ProStar engines have become the pinnacle of performance engines for RZR due to their efficiency, acceleration and durability. To get more power to the ground, the vehicle also features the extremely-durable RZR XP transmission which is specifically geared to optimize the power of the engine for a huge improvement in acceleration over the RZR 4 800. With improved clutching and calibration, the RZR 4 900 EPS’ ride is also smooth and predictable throughout the power band. And the new, high-flow clutch intake system provides more airflow and decreases belt temperature to provide an extremely durable clutch system.
To handle diverse terrains from high desert to dense trails, the RZR 4 900 EPS features a 106.5 in/270.5 cm long wheelbase paired with a Dual A-Arm Front and Rear Suspension with 12.25 in/31.12 cm of front suspension travel and 13.2 in/33.53 cm in the rear and FOX Performance Series 2.0 Podium X Shocks, so the suspension can be tuned for exactly the way you ride to provide excellent plushness and comfort while still yielding great bottom-out resistance. The unit’s ultra-rigid, tubular chassis is paired with a completely new suspension geometry for less vibration inside the vehicle and more responsive suspension feedback. The machine also features new 27 in/68.58 cm GBC Dirt Commander Tires that offer better side bite, stiffer sidewalls, better tracking through corners and increased durability, making the RZR 4 900 EPS a performance-based, multi-passenger machine that's predictable and inspires confidence.
For unmatched agility, the RZR 4 900 EPS has several features that were first introduced on the RZR S 900. The vehicle’s optimized track width inspires confidence through corners thanks to an additional 1.3 in/3.3 cm of rear track width while maintaining the overall vehicle width of 60 in/152.4 cm. While all RZR vehicles are equipped with On-Demand True AWD, the RZR 4 900 EPS utilizes Polaris’ High-Performance AWD which keeps the front wheels pulling stronger and longer, maximizing power delivery to the ground in every condition for a more responsive ride. The system provides increased traction without sacrificing steering effort to provide unmatched point-and-shoot handling. The RZR 4 900 EPS also features 20 percent faster steering response with an improved two-turn lock to lock steering ratio. Coupled with the smoothest and most-responsive standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS) with variable assist, the vehicle ensures the operator feels confident and less fatigued, and allows the driver to keep his hands on the steering wheel more often even when navigating through tight terrain.
For excellent rider comfort, the RZR 4 900 EPS features many of the same, unique features found on the RZR XP 1000. Both driver and passenger seats are equipped with seat sliders for easy adjustability, and all four seats offer improved bolstering and more hip cushioning for a more secure feel. A thin-film technology under the cover of the seats offers a drier ride in wet conditions. Rear passengers also will enjoy more foot and leg room, and an angled floor for a more secure feeling. The vehicle also features four, factory-installed quarter doors to make getting in and out easier.
First found on the RZR XP 1000, the cockpit of the RZR 4 900 EPS features front LED floor lighting and a blue back-lighted instrument cluster, readable both in direct sunlight and at night. To take more stuff along, a large center storage area and a bigger glove box provide ample space for any items needed during the ride while the deeper rear box provides ample space for additional cargo. Sealed floor seams and equipment pass-throughs keep the occupants cleaner; while dual removable floor drains allow for easier clean out of the cabin.
The RZR 4 900 EPS also is easier to service due to the ease of access of the major components. The air filter, spark plugs and oil fill are located under the removable box panel in the cargo box of the vehicle while a panel between the seats houses the dipstick and oil filter, and is accessible without removing the seats. The vehicle features an integrated transmission with only one check/fill point and grease zerks for both the inboard and outboard bushings of the A-arms. Durability is taken to a new level with new stronger ball joints, half shafts and hubs with improved bearing fit. To allow for easy electrical accessory installation, the RZR 4 900 EPS features a terminal block for wiring under the hood and a bigger battery with 44 Amp-hours of capacity and 575 cold-cranking amps.
RZR owners love to accessorize their vehicles and the RZR 4 900 EPS’ purpose-built chassis is exclusively engineered for Polaris accessories. With integrated mounting points situated along the vehicle frame and pass-through areas for routing wires, accessories can be attached with minimal installation time. Additions, such as rock sliders and bumpers, easily attach and fit securely to the vehicle’s frame due to Polaris’ innovative Lock & Ride® Expanding Anchor; a revolutionary piece of hardware that expands as it is inserted into a mounting point. Lock & Ride windshields, rear panels, roofs and doors work seamlessly with each other and install directly onto designated mounting points, making installation simple, and providing superior fit and finish.
The RZR 4 900 EPS will be offered in Havasu Red Pearl and Voodoo Blue and will be in dealerships starting in February

To accommodate multi-passenger customers who are looking to haul more people, Polaris is excited to announce the all-new UTV RANGER CREW 900-6. The UTV RANGER CREW 900-6 has all the same premium features as the RANGER CREW 900 with an additional seating space in the front row -replacing the center console- that ups the carrying capacity to six passengers.

To ride all day with less fatigue, the UTV ACE 570 SP’s EPS is the smoothest, most-responsive Power Steering available with Variable Assist for easier steering at low speeds. For optimum control and smooth, even deceleration, the EBS works to control braking directly from the engine. These two new features found on the ACE 570 SP work in tandem to provide even more comfort, capability and confidence. The ACE 570 SP is the third vehicle in the ACE family to be announced by Polaris this year and will be available in Black Pearl Premium Paint with 12 in/30.48 cm cast aluminum wheels and a cut-and-sew, adjustable seat.
The RZR 170 is the only side-by-side vehicle available for youth riders 10 years old and older. For Model Year 2015, Polaris is adding EFI to the popular youth model for easier starting, improved idle quality, smooth throttle response and improved speed limiting. The RZR 170 EFI will continue to include a wide variety of safety features such as an adjustable throttle limiter to enable adults to set a maximum speed control limit, daytime running lights to increase daytime visibility, full floorboards, seatbelts, color-coded pedals, parking brake and side nets. The vehicle will be available in Indy Red and Voodoo Blue.
The RANGER CREW® 900-6 in Sage Green and Polaris Pursuit Camo, Polaris ACE 570 SP and RZR 170 EFI will be available at Polaris dealerships nationwide starting in November. The additional RANGER CREW® 900-6 EPS colors will be available in January.
Military style UTV RZR
Polaris Industries Inc. the leading manufacturer of UTV off-road vehicles, announced the company was awarded a contract by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to provide RZR MRZR Lightweight UTV Tactical All Terrain Vehicles. This contract award spans up to five years, and allows SOCOM to manage their ultra-light tactical mobility needs to meet mission demands and emerging threats.
The RZR MRZR2 and MRZR4 (RZR) are highly-mobile, CV-22 transportable, multi-configurable UTV off-road platforms, and will be supplied with accessories, spare parts, mechanical and operator training.
“Polaris is proud to supply the U.S. Special Operations Forces with our high-performing UTV RZR MRZR vehicles,” said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. “As a recognized industry leading original manufacturer of off-road vehicles, Polaris is uniquely positioned to rapidly develop and provide the military with purpose built mobility platforms.”
This award comes on the heels of the five-year contract awarded to Polaris, in August, to provide MV850 ATVs to USSOCOM. The MV850 is a highly-mobile single operator ATV platform, designed for the U.S. military and allied forces. These recent contract awards reflect Polaris’ commitment to serve the U.S. military and favorably positions the company to supply the US and allied militaries with ultra-light tactical vehicles and mobility solutions. “These platforms are a modular design to meet the demanding needs of U.S. and international special operations, expeditionary and light infantry forces,” added Haddad. “Both of these vehicles are deployed and in use around the globe, in all of the U.S. military branches and special operations forces along with several allied militaries and special operations forces.”
One day after Polaris Industries unveiled the 107 horsepower RZR®XP 1000 to Polaris dealers, consumers attending DuneFest in Winchester Bay, Oregon were able to catch a glimpse of the biggest and baddest Side-by-Side of the RZR
“This is the fastest we’ve ever brought a RZR product to consumers,” said Jason DiFuccia, marketing manager for RZR. “We are extremely excited to be part of DuneFest and show off the new king of sport side-by-sides.”
Polaris’ RZR is the No. 1 line of recreational side-by-sides on the market with a diverse line up including trail, high performance and multi-passenger options with the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility. Today, Polaris extends the product line by introducing the new, limited edition RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition!
“We’re very excited to offer the Jagged X Edition which provides a whole new customer solution featuring the most popular options straight from the factory,” said Craig Scanlon, general manager, Recreational Off-Road Vehicles for Polaris. “This vehicle is the most complete RZR ever built, combining the ultimate
The RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition has the most power, most comfort and
most premium options ever offered on a RZR. The vehicle features the
first high output engine on a RZR, a 94 horsepower ProStar™ 900 Twin EFI
engine coupled with a stainless steel SLP® exhaust; a long wheelbase for a
smoother ride; comfort features such as premium Walker Evans 2.5 inch Body Rear Shocks, Electronic Power Steering and PRP seats; and premium features such as a custom cab frame, factory-installed doors, dual removable cargo boxes, Bighorn tires on painted Walker Evans beadlock rims and a Jagged X-inspired graphics package
“Off-road racing is incredible proving grounds for our machines and Polaris has been working closely with one of the premier off-road racing teams, Jagged X, for a number of years,” said Donna Beadle, Polaris Off-Road Racing Team Manager. “Last year, for the introduction of the RZR XP 4 900, Jagged X raced a nearly-stock car for the Best in the Desert Series. The successful season,
which included five podiums in six races, showed the capability of the unit,
provided a whole new customer solution and is the inspiration for the
RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition.”
To give the new RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition more power, Polaris took
the class-leading 88 horsepower ProStar 900 that’s been powering the RZR
XP 900 and RZR XP 4 and made it a high output engine. Changes include
new profiles on the intake and exhaust camshafts, and the addition of stiffer
valve springs. These changes were paired with a new engine calibration and a
stainless steel SLP® exhaust with dual outlets for increased exhaust flow and
an aggressive race-inspired sound. To accommodate the power increase, the
clutches were updated with new weights to provide increased acceleration
performance. The ProStar 900 H.O. now boasts 94 HP, with acceleration on par with the RZR XP 900 and 17 percent faster acceleration (0-60mph) than
the RZR XP 4 900
Along with having more power, The RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition is the most comfortable side-by-side available due to its 26-inch longer wheelbase for a smoother ride and Walker Evans 2.5” Body Rear Shocks. For comfort in the cabin, Polaris added deep-bolstered, five-point, harness-ready PRP seats, the most-comfortable seats on the market, an easily-adjustable driver seat and more than an inch of additional legroom. To reduce rider fatigue and steering effort, the vehicle also features electronic power steering to tackle the toughest terrain.
As the most-premium RZR ever, the RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition offers thousands of dollars in factory-installed add-ons for incredible visual appeal and even more performance. Along with its black, blue and white Jagged X-inspired graphics, the vehicle sports matching factory-installed doors, Voodoo Blue painted suspension springs and valve cover, a race-inspired, color-matched, custom cab frame with integrated rear cab frame extension that wraps around the rear bed and Bighorn tires on Black painted Walker Evans beadlock wheels with color-matched beadlock rings. For added storage, the unit also features
weather-sealed, dual cargo boxes in the rear cab area that have lockable lids
and are easily removed.
The RZR XP 900 H.O. Jagged X Edition will be available at Polaris dealerships in very limited quantities in late January.
