Off to brave the wild? Don’t forget to pick the right ride then, mate. You won’t like it a bit if you were to end up halfway stuck in some quagmire or godforsaken bog in a hefty yet claustrophobic four-wheeler, so you’d better pick your transport carefully in advance. In fact, perhaps we can help you with that: with Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS High Lifter Edition, exploring the great swampy areas or just your everyday muddy outdoors becomes a piece of cake – and here’s why.
Built to take all possible obstacles in its stride, Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS High Lifter Edition boasts some mean-looking components, like the ultra-powerful 110 HP ProStar 1000 High Output engine with some 999ccs for big bore twin displacement, dual overhead cams, electronic fuel injection and four valves per cylinder, all topped with an enhanced torque and throttle control, automatic transmission/final drive, a set of super-cool Walker Evans suspensions (racer-inspired three-link trailing arm for the rear and a long travel dual A-arm up front), as well as a few high-set air and vent lines, some ultra-stiff springs, LED lighting gear and a pair of single-stage Walker Evans shocks for your smoothest riding experience.
Apart from this, the Polaris off-road beast also features an on-demand true all-wheel drive with 80 percent more strength than most standard systems, coupled by a digital gauge with all the ultimate ride essentials – speedometer, clock, odometer, tripmeter, volt meter, hour meter, tachometer, hi-temp light, coolant temperature, fuel gauge, service indicator, gear indicator, seatbelt reminder light and DC outlet.
Cargo-wise, Polaris RZR XP packs the Lock&Ride storage system with 300 pounds (136.1 kilograms) of rear rack capacity, bed box sizing 28 x 22 x 7 inches (72 x 57 x 17.8 centimeters) and 740 pounds (335.6 kilograms) for total payload. Thanks to the 4,500-pound winch with integrated dash switch, remote control and synthetic rope combined with large reverse chain, cast aluminum wheels shod in 29.5 x 9-14-inch High Lifter Outlaw II tires, mud-specific gearing and tank with 9.5 gallon (36 liter) fuel capacity, RZR XP 1000 EPS will never let you down out in the wild, come rain or shine, however muddy your off-road trail may be.
Measuring 122 x 64 x 75 inches (309.9 x 162.6 x 190.5 centimeters, L x W x H) and weighing approximately 1,530 pounds (693.9 kilograms), the imposing Polaris RZR XP is built to take on two persons and dig through mud like a true professional utility vehicle, without ever stopping before mucky obstacles like swamps, mires, deep mud and marshes. So, are you ready for your ultimate off-road adventure? You’d better be, because your new Polaris RZR XP is definitely looking forward to the trip. watch video below
