2018 Polaris RZR XP Turbo ATV - Worth The Ride? You Bet!

 

 

The new RZR XP Turbo, made by Polaris, is designed to combine rugged durability with comfort. Standing at a little over 6 feet high, with a length of almost 10 feet, this ATV is built with a ProStar Turbo H.O. Engine, the most powerful engine this brand has ever developed. The 168 HP means you will have all the power you need to take on most conditions, whether you are on a paved road or a rocky trail. The electronic fuel injection system consists of many sensors to signal the main system on how much fuel is needed, based on stored information.

The automatic PVT (Polaris Variable Transmission) will change gear ratios as you are driving so you are always at the right RPM for the environment you are riding in. The company's On-Demand AWD (All Wheel Drive) is the only true drive system in the industry. The power is shifted from the rear wheels to all four of them when that feature is activated, which will give you the traction you need in rough conditions.

 

 

This off-road beast has a 16 inch Dual A-Arm suspension with a stabilizer bar and a Trailing Arm 18 inch rear travel suspension, so not much will slow down or stop you from where you need to go or what you need to do. The front and rear shocks are Walker Evans Needles (2 inches for the front and 2.5 inches in the rear) with adjustable 16-position clickers, to prevent bottom outs and keep you comfortable. Other models have different shocks and more accessories.

The front and rear brakes on the RZR XP Turbo contain 4-wheel hydraulic discs, with Triple-Bore calipers in the front and Dual-Bore calipers in the rear. Calipers are what stops your vehicle by squeezing the wheel rotors, and the ones on this ATV will absorb more heat and friction so they will last longer than regular ones.

The Polaris RZR Turbo weighs 1,475 pounds, can carry 740 pounds of extra weight, and holds 9.5 gallons of gas. There are LED lights in both the front and rear and you can add on different sets of lights if you customize your ATV, at an extra cost, of course. The interior includes a tripmeter, gear indicator, coolant temperature gauge, a DC outlet, and more. Also, there are bucket seats with sliders in the front and adjustable seat belts, as well as electronic power steering with Variable Assist to give you easier control.

 

 

Lastly, you can completely customize the RZR Turbo with different roofs, windshields, doors, bumpers, mirrors, lights, tires, and more. You can even put a radio in there with a subwoofer and blast some tunes as you have fun bouncing around on the trails. Don't want the radio in the dashboard? You could pay an extra thousand or two and get a roof audio system installed to create sounds from above! If you had the extra cash to throw into this, you would probably never want to do anything else but ride, but if you didn't, you still can't go wrong with the base model.
