Since the power steering is on point whether you have it in 2- or 4-wheel drive, we ended up driving with 4-wheel drive engaged almost all the time. The only instances we didn’t engage 4-wheel drive was when we wanted to hang the back end out on fast, mountain fire roads.

The power the 2014 Kawasaki Teryx4 puts to the ground was exceptional, even if we were at over 6ooo feet elevation the entire time.

Pushing the Teryx4 LE through tight, tree-lined corners in 2-wheel drive revealed a push from the front end, but it was quickly alleviated with throttle input and a slight modulation of the steering wheel.

The machine itself comes with front and rear swaybars to aid in body control, and we can confidently say that they do their job. Body roll is kept to a minimum even with passengers and gear aboard the vehicle.
