See photos of the new 2013 Polaris Ranger XP 900 in action as we get our first ride on this side-by-side utility vehicle.
- The 900 is poised to replace the Ranger 800 as the ultimate work/recreation UTV available from the American company.
- As the name suggests, the XP 900 uses essentially the same ProStar engine found in the RZR XP 900, which is a known ass-kicker.
- The XP 900 has some lofty goals to supplant the popular Ranger 800 as the workhorse of the Polaris UTV lineup.
- Once we saw the lineup it was clear that the Ranger XP 900 is the cream of the crop for this model year.
- The XP 900 utilizes a similar Parallel Twin to its RZR cousin, with the 875cc mill benefiting from a host of upgrades.
- The Ranger XP 900's Parallel Twin engine is claimed to produce 60 horsepower and 54 lb-ft of torque.
- The base model retails for $12,999. Polaris customers are going to be able to repair and maintain their equipment much easier than previously, and it’s extremely usable in multiple environments.
- Polaris absolutely dominates the UTV market, spurred on by robust sales of its RZR and Ranger lineups. The new Ranger XP 900 delivers practical functionality with fun performance.
