We must admit that 2024 is shaping up to be a model year with Polaris releasing more new models than we can keep up with. Not only that, but with the addition of the Ranger XD 1500 lineup that makes two completely new categories of side-by-sides under Polaris’ belt in a single model year.
It has been nine years since Kawasaki pulled the sheet off its Mule PRO lineup with there being no significant updates since then other than cosmetic changes. Change is now upon us because Kawasaki has unveiled a significantly updated Mule PRO with a 1000 engine. Yes, we say hello to the Mule Pro 1000. No window dressing here but a significant list of updates to the platform, most significantly the obvious powertrain upgrade to a parallel twin-cylinder Kawasaki built 999cc engine. All of the laundry
Ten years sure does go by fast. Yes, a decade ago is when Polaris introduced the RZR XP 1000 to the side-by-side world and created the sport segment of the industry in the process. The 2014 Polaris RZR XP 1000 was truly a revolutionary vehicle for the time with time making it the number one selling sport side-by-side on the market. Here we are a decade later with Polaris introducing a completely new RZR XP 1000 for 2024.

At the dawn of 2022, Polaris made a HUGE announcement with the release of the biggest, baddest, most powerful RZR ever with the RZR Pro R.

Join me in a dreaming moment here and envision this – you’re cruising down backroads caked in red dirt (does Brooks & Dunns “Red Dirt Road” song come to mind here?). You’ve got the tunes on low, your road trip buddy is next to you, some delicious chips and snacks are scattered between you, and wild horses are cruising right next to your vehicle. There is literally NO ONE around for miles, it’s just you, your significant other, your truck and wild horses…. Come out of your dream state now, my
At the far North end of the Grand Canyon, at the place where an unassuming dirt runway and long winding dirt road collide, lies the gateway to an ATV and UTV riders’s dream of adventure and exploration, and views that burn in one’s mind for a lifetime. This place is the land of rugged terrain, vast canyons, raging rivers, and the place outlaws ran for solace from “the law”. This place embodies everything the American West stands for, and to this day appeals to those wishing to experience the adv

At 225 horsepower, 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, 24.5-inches of travel, FOX LIVE VALVE shocks, and all kinds of durablilty and technology this RZR is THE beast. If you want the fastest, most capable, and priciest sport side-by-side on the planet then this is your RZR. That said, how is it really, and how does this RZR really perform? Is it worth all the hype?
Of all the side-by-sides that have come out recently none have captured our curiosity like the Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic. We had the opportunity to see the Ranger XP Kinetic in action a year ago at a press event where Polaris "teased" the vehicles, but we couldn't get up close and personally with it or even photograph it. Since it's release we have studied the specs, ask questions, and get an overall feel for the vehicle, but we have had no opporunity to lay hands on it. We have requested
