This experience and engineering results in an optimal balance of low end torque and high horsepower to provide smooth, reliable power to help you get the job done.
  • ON-DEMAND TRUE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: With the Polaris true AWD advantage, all four wheels engage automatically when your vehicle needs more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when it doesn’t. When in 2WD, NEW for this year the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns that won’t tear up your lawn.
