Game Time - The Polaris 2014 Team

A Legend Retired - Two Rookies Step Up
Written By: 

In many ways Polaris reminds us of an elite level, professional sports team. Every year they field a championship caliber lineup, and every off-season they continually evolve, sometimes with minor changes, and sometimes by bringing in new players altogether. Our first look at the 2014 Polaris lineup previewed a couple new prospects, but also showed their commitment to the basics that has made them a fan favorite and a perennial contender.

The Polaris Sportsman is quite possibly the most popular ATV line ever built.  Since its inception in 1993, Polaris has manufactured well over one MILLION units, making it the best-selling utility ATV platform in the industry.  But as with anything mechanical, there have been some issues that have come to the surface, and there was a run of Sportsman 600’s and 700’s from 2002 to mid-2004 that were plagued with electrical problems and failure of the ignition system was a matter of when, not if.

2014 Polaris ATV Line Up
The legendary Sportsman 500 has been the flagship of the Sportsman line since its introduction in 1996. For Model Year 2014, Polaris is taking its legendary, best-selling 4x4 ATV of all-time and making it better with the launch of the Sportsman® 570 EFI. The Sportsman 570 EFI takes the best-in-class Sportsman 500 H.O to the next level with the addition of Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI), more than 20 percent more power, more comfort and more convenience features; while still offering the best pricing in its class, $6,499. Along with the base model, Polaris will offer models with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and the Sportsman® Touring 570 EFI, providing a full line of value-priced 500 class ATVs.

2014 Polaris Off-Road Line Up

Polaris has become a leader in the off-road industry by continually evolving its off-road offerings and Model Year 2014 is another year of innovation for the company. The RANGER line of utility vehicles will see three new products, RZR vehicles will have several enhancements and the addition of a new, premium trail edition, and Sportsman ATVs are taking the legendary and one of the bestselling 4x4 ATVs of all-time and making it better.

It’s hard to find anything about the Polaris Sportsman 550 we didn’t like.  From our first ride, we knew this model was really something special.  The engine is powerful, the ride is satin smooth, and the ergonomics are excellent.  We’ve used the Polaris Sportsman 550’s for every task from casual trail rides, to plowing snow, to pulling logs and they’ve always gotten the job done.  They’re also extremely reliable.

It takes more than a few laps around the track or a quick ride through the dunes to truly get the feel for a machine.  We like to ride it, use it for work, maintain it, and live with it on our turf before we write any review.  It also helps to let many different riders try it as well, and although most machines hit the mark for some riders, there is one machine that is almost universally loved.  Welcome to the Polaris Sportsman 550.
