    I'm looking to buy a new or slightly used utv. The main purpose will be loading it up with camping gear and getting lost with the family. Me the wife 2 teen boys and the dog. Need plenty of room to carry all our gear and must be rugged enough for Arizona wilderness. Suggestions please. Now I'm a bit of a power freak so it must have more than 70 hp. Thanks in advance!

    I think the General 4 would be worth looking at. the number of riders narrows it down really fast. and the HP.
    Oh and welcome to the Nation Larry!

    A good Ranger Crew would fit the bill. Plenty of power to do what you want to do plus good cargo carrying ability

    2013 XP 800 Ranger, 3 2017 Polaris 570 Full Sizes. All doomed for hard ranch work, long hours and rough conditions. 5 years or bust!

    Can't have enough room!

    It would most likely be a Ranger Crew for me as well. Should be able to find a nice used one out there for much less than new!

    I’d go with a General 4. Carries four people and gear but is still sporty.

    Adam my thoughts are the same as yours. For all around work and play a Ranger Crew fits me better! I sat in a General and found the cabin to be too tight for me and not enough box carrying size. Nice as it is I wouldn't buy one for my use!
