    Well I sold my heavily accessorized 2014 Polaris Ranger 570 in an effort to get something more suitable for the family. I’ve narrowed it down to the Wolverine x4, Teryx4 and in a distant 3rd Pioneer 1000-5.

    I probably can’t go wrong with either the x4 or T4 but was just looking for the best trail machine. My ranger got used for hunting and did great but I now have a Honda Rubicon for that so this 4seater will strictly before riding with my wife and 2 young kids.

    I’m very familiar with the features of all sxs’s and I’m going to stay away from Polaris this time around. Any things a guy should know first? I’m looking for something comfortable, decent power, has aftermarket support and grab bars. I was all in on the x4 but have been watching some T4’s in person and on YouTube and I’m really torn now.

    Teryx4 4 le

    Purchased a new teryx 4 le 2018 last year.
    Generates a fair amount of cabin heat.
    Engine noise level is high. Otherwise a good machine for trail riding. My other utv is a 2016 polaris 900s4. No issues with it.
    Main reason for switching to the teryx was lower cost and 3 year warranty. Other riders had switched to the teryx from polaris and felt it was much more durable.

    Yeah you bet, but the general 4 just isn’t for me. I’ve got it narrowed down to the x4 and T4. Might wait to see what the new model year brings across the industry

    Just Lookin

    Sledder,
    Did you buy something? I’m also looking at teryx 4 vs Wolverine x4. I need a back seat so the pooch can come along.

    Not yet, still debating, but leaning to the Wolverine x4. I have a medium sized dog and it looks like he could fit between the 2 back seats maybe.

    It appears the 2 draw backs to the teryx is the noise and heat. However I like the layout, seating positions, leg room and bed the best.

    But if I found a killer deal on a 2016+ teryx4 I would probably pull the trigger over the Wolverine. It’s hard to find used wolverine x4s let alone deals on them. The dealerships sell them no problem.

    Hi,
    If you still have not bought anything, I have to advocate the Polaris General 1000 4 seater.
    I have one, its my first UTV and its been immensely helpful.
    I do yard work with it.
    I use a brush grubber device connected to the included winch and pull up sizable sage brush all over the property. I put it in 4X4 and go up very steep inclines to get to downed timber, where I hang wasp traps out in early spring. I'm going over a lot of broken terrain too.
    I take it down to the hardware store in town which is about 25 minutes away down an unimproved county dirt road. In snow, mud or dust depending on the season, I've done nearly 60mph down that road.
    We had a major snow this last February, had I not had that General, I'd have been completely stranded. I had 7 foot drifts to get through. I had to shovel my way a bit with the drifts but I made it to town.
    I've operated it in 106 degrees and also 0 degrees.
    Its been very good, very reliable. The included winch helped a great deal when I got it high centered on deep snow a couple times.
    I went down a VERY steep hill and kept it in low 4X4 and it didn't miss a beat. I'm not a basher. I crawl through terrain because I had to pay for this UTV and I don't want to ruin it.
    Can't recommend it enough.

    M
