The Polaris Ranger – A Workhorse For the Farm
The Polaris RANGER has a 999cc, 4-stroke, twin-cylinder DOHC engine that delivers 82 horsepower and decent acceleration. Its rear-mounted liftgate can accommodate eight square bales of hay. Its cab and seat are roomy, and it has several other options to make it a comfortable riding vehicle. The RANGER is designed to be a workhorse on the farm, so you can take it almost anywhere you need to go.
The RANGER has always been a workhorse, but Polaris is focusing more attention on looks than ever before. The company has learned that the majority of its customers want a UTV that looks good, and this is reflected in the 2021 model. Colors include matte navy blue, burgundy metallic, and ghost white. The company also offers a wide selection of colors for the RANGER, including red, yellow, and blue.
A new electric version of the Ranger was introduced this summer. The company collaborated with Zero Motorcycles to make the all-electric side-by-side. The new machine aims to attract new customers to power sports vehicles. These vehicles include ATVs, snowmobiles, personal watercraft, and heavy motorcycles. The market for power sports vehicles is estimated at around $9 billion worldwide, and is projected to reach $12 billion by 2027.
While there are a lot of features in the RANGER lineup, many buyers prefer the electric version. The company has estimated that its new electric model will cost 70 percent less to maintain than its gas-powered counterpart. Unlike a gasoline-powered Ranger, it will not need spark plugs or oil changes. And unlike other utility side-by-sides, the electric version will have an extended factory warranty. The company promises that it will have three-year electric powertrain coverage and five-year battery protection.
In recent years, sales of the Polaris Ranger have soared, and the premium model has a 14.9 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The Ultimate version has a 29.8-kWh lithium-ion battery and a 78-mile range. The ultimate model includes a combination of Level 1 and Level 2 charger, which works in both 240V and 120V outlets. The chargers are highly efficient and can fully recharge the batteries in five hours.
The new electric version of the Ranger has an impressive seven-inch touch screen display. The touchscreen allows drivers to check the fuel level, odometer, and coolant temperature. Besides, a variety of other features are available for the premium version. A GPS navigation system and integrated Bluetooth connectivity can also be purchased. A map is included in the price of the ranger. There are two versions of the RANGER, the Ultimate and the Premium.
The ranger can be converted to electric with the use of a quick-charge system. The two versions of the Ranger have different charging systems. The Ranger XP Kinetic model has a Level 1 and Level 2 charger. This means that the power of the battery can be converted to electricity. The two chargers work with both 120V and 240V outlets. However, they are not interchangeable. One battery pack of the Polaris ranger can be installed on a 240V outlet, but the other will have to be purchased separately.
The Ranger 1000 and the XP share the same frame, similar bodywork, and suspension design. The XP model has 61 horsepower and a lower price. The premium version has a 29.8 kWh battery and eighty miles of range. Both models include a combined Level 1 and Level 2 charger for the batteries. The electric version of the Ranger is also compatible with 110V outlets. The XP has a smaller auxiliary light and a radio.
The Ranger has a range of uses. It can be used for utility tasks and to transport tools. It can be used for a variety of purposes, including landscaping, cleaning, and maintenance. Moreover, it can be operated by two people at the same time. With its four-wheel drive, the Ranger is great for off-roading. ATVs are mainly designed for the construction industry and can be operated by two people at a time.
The XP Kinetic has a larger battery and more advanced features than the 900. Its one-piece frame is 25 percent stronger than the previous model. Its rear suspension has increased by 10 inches. Its all-electric powertrain also includes a larger, more powerful bumper and a rear-mounted power switch. The 900XP is a true all-around SUV that has a massive bumper.
