Polaris, the worldwide leader in off-road vehicles, is announcing 11 new models, several product enhancements, and a new, ground-breaking technology that will revolutionize the off-road riding experience. The 2017 news stems from Polaris’ relentless pursuit of innovation, and its commitment to building the very best off-road solutions for its riders.
The new, groundbreaking technology RIDE COMMAND™ is a unique solution that solves the most common experiential problems of off-road riding by connecting the disconnect. With the RIDE COMMAND™ app and an intuitive, weather-resistant RIDE COMMAND™ 7-in. (17.8-cm.) display, the system connects people to their machines and people-to-people for a more social off-road experience. RIDE COMMAND is available on the RZR XP 1000 EPS Velocity Blue Limited Edition.
With this new technology, riders are now able to map rides in advance and transfer way-points from their phones to the display screen via Bluetooth. This is all possible with the use of the RIDE COMMAND App which can track where your ride group is without having to physically see them! This not only allows you to see your riding group remotely but you can see if other friends are nearby as well. A first of it’s kind in Off-road technology, is just a better way to stay in contact and track one another to log stats directly on your screen.
RANGER® introduces the all-new flagship, the RANGER XP 1000, with the most-powerful engine ever in utility side-by-side and exclusive Three-Mode Throttle Control. For carrying more passengers, Polaris also is introducing the new RANGER CREW XP 1000. In addition, there are new models across every price point and consumer application.

Polaris GENERAL™ answers the demands of consumers by introducing a new four-seat model and new features on its existing, two-seat model.
For Model Year 2017, Polaris expands on the success of the Polaris GENERAL™ and answers the demands of consumers with a new benchmark in multi-passenger comfort: the Polaris GENERAL 4 1000 EPS. The GENERAL two-seat models are further enhanced with the addition of VersaTrac® Turf Mode and the introduction of a new Hunter Edition with Polaris Pursuit® Camo.
The launch of the new Polaris GENERAL 4 1000 EPS brings ultimate comfort and refinement to the multi-passenger market.
