Polaris RZR® defined the recreational side-by-side (SxS) and continues to be the No. 1-selling brand. RZR delivers the ultimate combination of power, suspension, agility, comfort and customization making the vehicles superior to all other offerings in the marketplace. For 2017, the lineup of continues to lead the way with a new, dynamic innovation and a couple new models.
New! RIDE COMMAND
Off-road riding is a social experience. Polaris’ research shows a majority of off-road enthusiasts ride with a passenger or in a group. But, the off-road riding experience has barriers. Being strapped into a vehicle with a helmet makes it difficult to communicate with passengers; having multiple gadgets such as a GoPro®, GPS and a smart phone is cumbersome; and capturing ride memories to share is challenging — often requiring multiple steps, including getting out of the vehicle, remembering to turn the GoPro on or taking gloves off to use touch interfaces.
What if there was a solution to connect the disconnect? Leading the way in innovation, RIDE COMMAND is a unique solution solving the most common experiential problems with off-road riding. The RIDE COMMAND system includes the RIDE COMMANDTM app and an intuitive, glove-touch, weather-resistant RIDE COMMANDTM 7” (17.8-cm.) Display.
Using the RIDE COMMAND app, riders can map rides in advance and transfer waypoints from their phones to the display via Bluetooth®. The RIDE COMMAND 7” Display—in tandem with the RIDE COMMAND app — allows the operator to track where their group is without needing to physically see them or hanging in their dust trail. The operator can not only watch their group but also see friends close by. The technology, a first of its kind in off-road, is yet another way for the off-road community to stay in contact with one another, and track and share their ride stats directly to their social feed.
Along with planning and sharing rides or finding friends, RIDE COMMAND also provides seamless device control in one spot. Receive text and call notifications right on the screen for easier viewing. Never miss another epic moment with the ability to control a GoPro right from the display. Jam to favorite tunes either through Bluetooth or AM/FM radio right from the RIDE COMMAND 7” Display. Communicate and hear the thrill of passengers with an accessory Sena headset that is connected seamlessly via Bluetooth. Loading, unloading and traversing obstacles is easier as the display integrates standard front and rear-wired cameras giving the driver more visibility to those hard-to-see spots. RIDE COMMAND not only makes off-roading more enjoyable but easier to share the RZR lifestyle with friends and family.
RIDE COMMAND is available on the RZR XP 1000 EPS Velocity Blue Limited Edition and as an accessory through Polaris Engineered AccessoriesTM. The RZR XP 1000 EPS Velocity Blue Limited Edition will come standard with the RIDE COMMAND 7” Display, front and rear cameras, and in-door audio designed specifically for RZR to bring the off-road experience to the next level.
New! RZR XP 1000 EPS Gold Matte Metallic Limited Edition
For even more razor-sharp performance for the trails and rocks, Polaris is introducing the new RZR XP 1000 EPS Gold Matte Metallic Limited Edition. The vehicle offers all of RZR XP’s hallmark performance and versatility to dominate it all including: a 110-horsepower ProStar 1000 H.O. engine, legendary suspension with industry-exclusive Walker Evans® Position Sensitive Anti-Bottoming Needle Shocks, unmatched agility, comfortable and convenient interior, and added capability for premium trail riding and rock crawling.
The RZR XP 1000 EPS Gold Matte Metallic Limited Edition maintains the trail-ripping high gear found on other RZR XPs but also has an all-new, 55-percent lower low gear and more responsive, low-speed throttle map. The lower gearing and throttle mapping provide more grip and grunt at low speed for overcoming challenging obstacles found on the trail. And, the addition of strengthened front half shafts make for an even more rugged driveline.
The lower gearing and throttle mapping is paired with an all-new, Xtreme-Performance All- Wheel Drive (AWD) system that puts more power to the front wheels, more often, keeping the front wheels pulling at almost the same speed as the rear, for less rear-wheel slippage. The system helps the vehicle dominate twisty trails like it’s riding on rails and helps it crawl obstacles with ease. The RZR XP 1000 EPS Gold Matte Metallic Limited Edition also features a factory installed, premium trail and rock accessory package including: 14-in. (35.6-cm) ProArmor® Crawler Beadlock tires; rock sliders, high-clearance, front-control arms and rear radius rods; HMW Skid Plate, front bull bumper with tow hook; 4,500-lb. (2041-kg) Polaris winch; Click-6 harnesses, high-visibility front fender flares; and a rear-view mirror.

(152.4-cm.) width keeps it nimble and stable while the high-performance, true AWD keeps the front wheels pulling stronger and longer, maximizing power delivery to the ground in every condition for a more responsive ride.
