Using Polaris’ Tools for Selecting an ATV

Polaris has always cared deeply about their customers. Their easy-to-use website recommends an ATV based on a set of questions about how you plan to use your ATV.  They ask about whether you’re using it for work or fun--and what kinds of work or recreational riding you might be doing. This is important: you might want a different ATV for property maintenance than you would for farming or ranching.

Finally, the Polaris questionnaire asks about the features you’re looking for, like electronic power steering and heavy towing capacity. After you choose your features, you’ll get a product recommendation. The entire process takes less than a minute!

Of course, you might be interested in more than one Polaris ATV. We certainly have plenty of Polaris vehicles we love. Thankfully, our customer representatives can always help you with questions and set you up for a test ride. 

Choosing Between the Sportsman and Scrambler ATVs

We’ll keep this simple: if you’re looking for a utility ATV, go with the Polaris Sportsman. While Polaris makes the Sportsman in utility, sport, and touring models, they also make a number of models that are perfect for utility purposes. For example, you can add a rack extender to the rear rack of the Polaris Sportsman 570, and it has a towing capacity of 1,350 pounds. That’s a lot of power for hauling lumber around a worksite or taking care of your farm. Plus, you can still take it out for a fun ride on the trails.

The legendary Sportsman is a truly versatile ATV, but if you’re looking for an sportier option, consider the Polaris Scrambler. Polaris calls the Scrambler “the world’s most formidable sport ATV,” and we definitely agree!. With 14.5 inches of ground clearance, an 89hp engine and advanced rear suspension, you’ll make plenty of memories on the trail with the Scrambler.

Our Pick for Versatility: The Polaris Sportsman 570

The Sportsman 570 provides everything you need in terms of versatility and power. The Dual-A Arm independent rear suspension, sealed Macpherson Strut front suspension with 20.8cm travel, and electronic fuel injection ensure you’ll be in for a smooth ride on the trails or around your farm. Plus, all wheel drive kicks in as soon as your wheels start to spin, so you’ll have plenty of traction. A lot of road vehicles don’t even have this advanced technology. Finally, the battery includes more cold-cranking amps for easier starts. You can even add Polaris thumb warmers for extra comfort.

The instrumentation of this ATV includes a digital gauge speedometer, odometer, tachometer, tripmeter, hour meter, gear indicator, fuel gauge, AWD indicator, volt meter, coolant temperature, hi-temp light, and more.
