Polaris RZR 4: World's First Four Person UTV

Until now, you could not fit four passengers in a side-by-side UTV (Utility Terrain Vehicle) without resorting to aftermarket solutions, many of which have been judged substandard from a safety perspective. Those days are now over thanks to Polaris.

Already a leader in sport UTVs, Polaris has introduced the RZR 4, the factory-built 4 passenger utility vehicle. The RZR 4 can fit four adults comfortably, and adjustable seat positions make the UTV can accommodate both large and small passengers alike.

Power comes from a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, 760cc parallel twin that produces 55 horsepower. If that does not sound like a lot, remember that this machine only weighs 1255 lb. Those UTV enthusiasts who venture onto high performance trails will appreciate the Fox Podium X 2.0 shock absorbers, which are fully-adjustable for preload and damping. They offer a whopping 12 inches of suspension travel.  Stock tires are highly aggressive Maxxis Bighorns that will work well in both the sand and mud. Bed capacity is 300 pounds, and towing limit is 1500 pounds. The transmission features 5 settings:  Park, Neutral, Reverse, Low Gear, and High Gear. All-wheel-drive is on-demand, and two-wheel drive is selectable.

The potential downside for some buyers may be MSRP. The Polaris RZR 4 retails for nearly $15,000 - significantly more than a slightly preowned 4x4 pickup truck. At this price, UTV insurance is highly recommended, as is a weatherproof storage area or garage.The only other complaint which has turned up has been a weak clutch belt.

The RZR 4 represents a bold new step for Polaris, and a way that whole families can now enjoy off-roading together.
