Polaris Industries has added an “extreme performance” vehicle to its UTV family.
The recently introduced Ranger RZR XP 900 will feature a new power plant that provides acceleration that is 29 percent quicker than its nearest competitor, the company said in a press release.
“When we set out to design the Ranger RZR XP 900, we wanted to create a ground-breaking, high-performance vehicle to complement our current, best-selling Ranger RZR line,” Matt Homan, vice president and general manager of Polaris’ Off-Road Vehicles Division, said in a press release.
Polaris believes it has done that with the XP 900, which features a new 88 hp, 900 Twin, electronic fuel injected engine, a new 3-link Trailing Arm independent rear suspension with 13 inches of ground clearance and 14 inches of travel.
The XP 900, offered in Indy Red and a White Lightening limited edition model, will be available at Polaris dealerships this month, the company said. More than 70 Polaris accessories, including cargo boxes, winches and protection, also will be available at launch.
