For the past two decades, Polaris RANGER has been the trusted partner in helping hunters reach remote locations, haul gear and transport their trophy back to camp. The new RANGER XP 1000 EPS Back Country Edition, available in 3 and 6-seat models, is purpose-built for hunters operating in extreme riding conditions – from rocky mountain trails to the marsh. Available in exclusive Polaris Pursuit® Camo, these limited-edition models are factory-equipped with features hunters need and demand.
To power through the elements, the 82 horsepower ProStar® 1000 engine is paired with a reduced gear ratio transmission that includes a geared reverse for increased durability and strength for the toughest environments. The class-leading 13-inches of ground clearance is maximized with arched A-arms to devour unforgiving terrain, while high-mount air intakes ensure clean air reaches the engine and clutches when navigating water crossings or wet terrain. A Polaris Pro 4,500 LB HD winch mounted to the industrys largest stock front bumper provides big pulling power and the confidence to be ready for anything.
