2010.polaris.ranger-rzr4.blue.front-left.riding.on-dirt.action.jpg
Nine months ago, Polaris announced a relationship with Robby Gordon and today we're proud to introduce the first Robby Gordon edition, the all-new RANGER RZR 4. Before today, Sport Side-by-Side enthusiasts looking to carry multiple passengers had no option; that is no longer the case with the announcement of the industry's first four-seat Sport Side-by-Side.  "Polaris saw a market for a multi-passenger Sport vehicle at a significantly lower price than an expensive Sand Car or Rail," said Eric Nault, product manager for RANGER RZR 4. "The RANGER RZR 4 fills that need for a Sport Side-by-Side experience for multiple passengers." The RANGER RZR 4 has all the performance and attributes of the RANGER RZR family and the ability to carry four people. With a powerful 800cc High Output Twin EFI engine, the RANGER RZR 4 has a class-leading power-to-weight ratio and strong acceleration. Its 60-inch/152.4cm width coupled with RANGER RZR's patented design that places the engine behind the back seat for the lowest center of gravity, makes the RANGER RZR 4 more agile than most competitive two-seat Side-by-Sides. At 1,255 lbs/569.3 kg., it's also lighter than many two-passenger vehicles. For optimal, agile handling on any terrain, RANGER RZR 4 features long travel suspension with 12 in/30.5 cm of suspension travel and ground clearance. The unit's premium suspension includes new Fox Podium X 2.0 Piggyback Reservoir Shocks plus Chrome Moly front upper A-Arms for precision and strength. The rear anti-sway bar and dual rate springs keeps the chassis flat through corners and the rolled independent rear suspension (IRS) provides a smooth ride through all terrain.
