Polaris Announced Its New 2022 Models MORE POWER, MORE ENJOYMENT By Mike Vieria Photos Courtesy Of Polaris As more people are engaging in outdoor activities with their UTVs than ever before, Polaris is staying ahead of the game with several consumer-driven enhancements across its product line. With improvements designed to elevate the capabilities, comfort, and fun of outdoor exploration, here’s just a sample of what the new Polaris models have to offer. The popular high-performance side-by-side Polaris RZR enjoys some fresh features and colors across the lineup for the 2022 model year. Among the improvements, the Pro XP line adds an in-dash trickle charge port for easy battery service and charging capabilities, and Premium and Ultimate models receive new door inserts for improved comfort and protection for riders.  The Trail Premium model now has an added “Turf Mode” that allows a tighter turning radius for narrow corners by unlocking the rear differential. “The RZR Pro XP has long been the standard in performance off-roading, and we are excited to push the Pro XP’s capabilities even further,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President of RZR Polaris. The RZR XP Turbo has been replaced by the RZR Pro XP Sport model, offering improved power, performance, style, and strength. An eight percent increase in horsepower and two inches more suspension travel get you there faster, and a stronger transmission and front-drive axles help keep you going. Newly refined, more adjustable, driver-centric cockpit features add to comfort and enjoyment for riders. An all-new Crawler AT tire from Pro Armor is available for optimal performance in tough terrain, as are two new 14-inch wheel options for added strength and style. New Rockford Fosgate sound system options for the RZR include a Stage 5 Audio upgrade that features a 400-watt 12-inch subwoofer and 100-watt speakers for twice the output of the earlier systems. Base MSRP for Polaris RZR models ranges from $13,699 to $21,999. 2022 Polaris General  The Polaris General lineup now includes the brand new XP1000 Trailhead Edition. Available in both two-seat and four-seat models, the Trailhead Edition navigates the toughest terrain in comfort for the ultimate trail-tackling adventure while bringing family, friends, and all your essential gear along for the ride.   The Trailhead includes Ride Command, a 7-inch glove-touch infotainment system that features a GPS designed with unique route-following features for backcountry travel outside of cell phone range, including group texts. Among the other upgraded features on the Trailhead Edition is a Lock & Ride Adventure Bed Rack to securely stow everything you need for your trip, a Rockford Fosgate Stage 3 audio system, an 11-inch Pro Armor high-output light bar integrated into the front bumper, and a special paint and graphics scheme. Most other General models benefit from a winch upgrade that provides Auto-Stop, synthetic rope with a blacked-out, forged hook, an aluminum fairlead, and a rubber isolator. Models with Ride Command also get a Plow Mode that automatically raises and lowers the plow blade when the vehicle shifts into and out of park, as well as the Rockford Fosgate Stage 3 audio system. Polaris General MSRP starts at $18,999, with Trailhead Edition MSRP starting at $26,699.    2022 Polaris Youth The all-new RZR 200 EFI replaces the RZR 170 EFI and establishes a new standard in the Youth side-by-side category with exclusive safety innovations like the Youth Ride Control through the Ride Command app, allowing parents to set speeds and boundaries for their kids that are appropriate to their age and skill level. The app controls adjustable speed limiting, geo-fencing, and Helmet Aware technology. With a 180cc EFI engine, ten inches of ground clearance, 24-inch tires, and seven inches of travel from its fully independent suspension, the RZR 200 EFI has the capabilities to manage varying terrain easily and safely. Features like an adjustable driver’s seat and tilting steering wheel allow comfort and fit for drivers as they grow. Included are helmets with a Helmet Aware beacon, hard doors, LED headlights and taillights, and a high-visibility flag to provide additional safety for young riders.   A full line of comfort and protection accessories is also available for the 200 EFI, including bumpers, windshields, a roof, rock sliders, and wheels and tires. MSRP for the Polaris RZR 200 EFI starts at $5,899. SJ
