Flagship Ranger gets redesigned for 2018
Polaris Ranger is the industry’s No.1-selling utility side-by-side (SxS), offering the hardest working, smoothest riding family of vehicles for hunters, farmers, homeowners and recreation enthusiasts. For Model Year 2018, Polaris has set a new standard in utility side-by-sides with the introduction of the all-new Ranger XP 1000. Simply put, the new flagship Ranger is more rugged, more refined, more Ranger. More than 100 owner-inspired innovations make the new Ranger XP 1000 the hardest working, smoothest riding Ranger ever built.
The 2018 Ranger XP 1000 is more rugged. Starting with a powerful ProStar 1000 engine, tuned to produce a class-leading 82 horsepower. This unmatched power is put to work with an all-new clutch and redesigned driveline. The Polaris-designed, large-ratio clutch provides unmatched, low-speed drivability and features the strongest belt ever offered on Ranger. Additionally, redesigned under-hood air intakes and a new clutch cover provide increased air flow for cooler, longer-lasting belt life. Improved driveline geometry produces less friction for increased efficiency and a quieter ride. The Ranger XP 1000 turns power into productivity with 25-percent more towing capacity for an industry-leading 2,500 lbs. (1,134 kgs).
