Care to guess which manufacturer builds the most models of ATVs and Side x Sides? Most people would pick Polaris as we did, but it got us thinking - just how many models do they make? The answer surprised even us, and when the company that has recorded so many firsts in the industry released their 2015 lineup, they crossed another huge threshold. With different models and configuration packages, Polaris now has over 100 models to choose from. For 2015 Polaris really put the throttle down and released a huge number of new ATVs and the Side x Sides, hitting practically every type of user.
