Most manufacturers have nightmares about extra unaccounted passengers on any vehicle they build. For years, the rule of thumb with ATVs was "one seat and one set of pegs equals one rider only." A trip to almost any riding area more than illustrated the real world practice of people riding double, however, and although we ALWAYS follow proper safety practices and do everything we can to encourage others to do so as well, we could see the point of riding double in some cases. It was only natural to take your significant other along for an enjoyable day of exploration.

For 2010, Polaris has refined and polished almost every aspect of its 6x6. Polaris says that it appeals to farmers, outdoorsmen, land owners, contractors and municipalities that need massive storage capacity with unmatched terrain capabilities.  We couldn’t agree more. Except to add that as UTV standards go, the six-wheeled beast is thunderously quick, both from a standstill and at speed. The 6x6 retains all of the key components that are so convincing to these buyers, but with significant improvements. “Just doing what the customer asks,” Polaris says.

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.
