2018 Polaris Model Year Lineup
Polaris®RZR® created the recreational side-by-side (SxS) category and continues to be the No. 1-selling brand by delivering the ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility. For Model Year 2018, Polaris takes the comprehensive RZR lineup to the next level, with vehicles in the Xtreme Performance family ranging from $17,999 to $25,999 – including the new flagship RZR XP Turbo EPS DYNAMIX™ edition for $25,999 U.S., and RZR XP Turbo EPS with exclusive Walker Evans®needle shocks for $19,999 U.S.
RZR DYNAMIX™ Active Suspension is an industry first innovation that redefines the riding experience. Available exclusively on the RZR XP Turbo EPS DYNAMIX Edition, DYNAMIX is the world’s first and only intelligent suspension system designed for off road. The system is smart enough to monitor critical driver and vehicle inputs 200 times per second, is capable enough to continuously adjust each individual shock on-the-fly, and is so dynamic that instead of having to choose between a plush ride or performance, occupants now get the best of both every time they ride. Whether the vehicle is cornering, braking, accelerating, changing speeds or airborne, the system adjusts the suspension for the best response to driver inputs and terrain. These continuous changes give riders more performance without sacrificing a comfortable ride.
RZR DYNAMIX’s real-time adjustments come to life through the revolutionary RIDE COMMAND® system introduced in 2017. The glove-touch, weather-resistant, 7-inch display indicates the suspension control system status – including compression dampening, selected mode, g-force, pedal position, steering angle, brake status and diagnostics – allowing riders to visualize the real-time control.
In addition to the real-time adjustments by the system, riders now have cockpit control over the suspension’s baseline settings. Simply select a preferred riding style and DYNAMIX adjusts from there:
- COMFORT; More plush than any other ride in the industry. Designed for cruising around and eliminating the small chatter.
- SPORT; The ultimate blend of performance and comfort for high-speed handling.
- FIRM; Cranks all four shocks to max stiffness for the firmest suspension in the industry. Designed for extreme encounters and nasty terrain.
The premium two-seat RZR XP Turbo EPS DYNAMIX Edition includes RZR DYNAMIX Active Suspension, the RIDE COMMAND 7” display with rear camera, and an all-new 900-watt charging system that improves charging and allows for better accessory integration. With an MSRP of $25,999, the RZR XP Turbo EPS DYNAMIX Edition is the new RZR flagship.

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).
At the foundation of the RANGER XP 1000 is a more-rigid, one-piece chassis. The new chassis increases stiffness and reduces flex for a stronger, more durable machine and improved ride. The industry-leading 11 in. (27.9 cm.) of suspension travel represents a 10-percent increase, further enhancing the legendary smooth ride that RANGER is known for. New 27-in (68.6 cm.) tires with cast aluminum rims provide a taller stance and an industry leading 13 in. (33 cm.) of ground clearance. With 8.3 percent more ground clearance, the RANGER XP 1000 can conquer the toughest terrain, from the jobsite to the trail.
The new RANGER XP 1000’s all-new exterior design is inspired by full-size pickup trucks and captures the essence of RANGER. The completely new front end, larger headlights and a new distinct grill are positioned behind a massive front bumper, designed for added protection in the toughest environments. The new bumper includes an integrated Polaris Glacier® plow mount, vehicle tie-down points and mounting points for a Polaris winch and lighting accessories. The RANGER XP 1000 also features a new, full-body skid plate providing even-more rugged protection for increased durability. An all-new dumping cargo box carries 11.5 percent more volume and has welded steel corners for increased stiffness. Features such as exclusive Lock & Ride® rails, eight stake pockets, molded in-box divider slots, and large, reinforced D-rings make it the most versatile cargo box in the industry.
The RANGER XP 1000 is more refined, delivering the next level of fit, finish and attention to detail in a utility SxS. For precision handling, the vehicle has a reduced steering ratio and provides a tighter turning radius, and the new, front sway bar offers a more responsive ride and improved maneuverability. Low-speed clutch engagement provides a smooth ride and more control when loading, unloading, hooking up a trailer or navigating tight terrain. And now standard on all RANGER XP 1000 vehicles, the Polaris engine braking system (EBS) ensures smooth, controlled descents on steep inclines with or without a load. The vehicle also features Three-Mode Throttle Control with Performance, Standard and Work modes for unparalleled control of the vehicle’s industry-leading power. All this combines for a better driving experience, no matter the application.
The all-new interior of the RANGER XP 1000 has been completely redesigned around the operator, providing more comfort and convenience. Getting in and out of the vehicle is easier with 5 in. (12.7 cm.) more clearance. Once inside, the operator will notice more legroom and ultra-comfortable seats with 1 in. (2.5 cm.) more bottom cushioning. An all-new, user-friendly dash layout features a new dual-sweep digital/analog gauge and four more accessory switch locations that are pre-wired. As a result, Polaris Engineered™ accessory installation is easier.
With new class-leading storage, the RANGER XP 1000 has room for anything needed for a day of riding or working. A massive, 3.4 gallon (12.7 liter) in-dash tray, and large, truck-inspired double glove boxes keep even the largest items secure. The new flip-up passenger seat offers maximum interior configurability and can hold cargo such as a 5 gal. (19 liter) bucket or a cooler. The in-cab attention to detail can even be seen with the six cup holders, including handle cutouts for mugs.
RANGER has hundreds of available Polaris Engineered accessories for any work or recreation application, including cab systems, storage solutions, wheels and tires, and more. The RANGER XP 1000 takes accessory integration to new heights with the new Polaris® Pulse™ electrical system and RANGER Pro Shield cab system. Found under the hood, the Polaris Pulse electrical system allows for plug-and-play installation of Polaris Engineered powered accessories. Additionally, a Polaris Pulse bus bar can be added to the new Polaris Engineered Lock & Ride roofs for easy installation of additional lighting, audio and other powered accessories.
The all-new RANGER Pro Shield cab system provides the industry’s most premium in-cab experience with at least three times less dust intrusion than competitive OEM offerings. New, exterior design features on the vehicle further enhance rider comfort by reducing dust in cab. The cab system is fully customizable and features re-designed doors with crank or power windows, as well as half-doors. It also offers integrated accessory options such as an eight-vent heater and defrost system; windshield washer and wiper system; multi-function, removable cab light; heated seats; rearview mirrors; and more to provide the most-premium cab experience RANGER has ever offered.
Along with the more rugged, more refined RANGER XP 1000, new for model year 2018, the entire RANGER lineup of hardest working, smoothest riding utility side-by-sides come standard with a one-year factory warranty.
The RANGER XP 1000 is available in Sage Green, Sunset Red, Suede Metallic, Matte Titanium Metallic and Polaris Pursuit Camo.
