No powersports manufacturer has released more new models in the past two decades than Polaris. It’s not even close, and for 2020 they’re keeping their foot on the gas. Special Edition models come from the factory with accessory packages designed for specific users, and it’s a great way to get the parts you need, already installed by the factory, and at a substantial discount over piecing it together yourself. Now Polaris has released several new 2020 RZR and Sportsman limited-edition models, and a steep price reduction on some long-time favorites.
RZR SHARP in 2020
Polaris RZR, the world’s No.1-selling sport performance Side x Side, has a new model that really caught our attention. The new RZR 900 FOX Edition with RIDE COMMAND combines the power and handling of the proven 900 platform and engine, with premium Fox suspension and the RIDE COMMAND electronics package. The Ride Command feature is a full-fledged trail map system, but it does so much more. The seven-inch, glove-touch display features a backup camera, (which can be handy in and out of a trailer) built-in GPS navigation, Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity and new features including Group Ride. Group Ride lets users view the live location of other riders through vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) antennas. Bluetooth tethering is through a smart phone or the RIDE COMMAND mobile app.
The new models suspension is just as impressive as the electronics. FOX 2.0 Podium X shocks with 10-inches of travel allow you to float over rough terrain, and the shocks are highly adjustable. We also like the full doors which keep you protected and safely inside the vehicle. Another feature we seldom use but are glad to have is Turf Mode. This allows you to unlock the rear differential when crossing sensitive turf, but when the trail gets sticky 4wd is there to pull you through. With any luck we’ll be doing a full review on the new RZR 900 FOX edition soon.
One feature we look for on every model is the price, and for 2020 Polaris actually was able to reduce the price on several existing models! That’s always great news, and the models are:
2020 RZR XP 4 Turbo – Starting at $22,699 U.S. msrp (reduced from $23,699)
2020 RZR XP Turbo – Starting at $19,999 U.S. msrp (reduced from $20,999)

NEW SPORTSMAN ATVs for 2020
We’ve long loved the Polaris Sportsman ATVs. The ride is second to none, and the extra features make them a fantastic tool for work or recreation. The all-new 2020 Sportsman 850 Premium LE and 2020 Sportsman 570 Premium LE feature exclusive, limited-edition colors and premium accessory combinations that come factory-installed.
Premium accessories installed at the factory include front and rear bumpers, hand guards, and a 3,500-lb. HD winch with a synthetic rope. The bumpers provide extra protection both front and rear, while the winch means you can pull your buddies out of any trouble. Both machines boast class-leading ground clearance (11.5-inches), suspension travel (Sportsman 850 - 10.3-inches and Sportsman 570: 9.5-inches) and industry exclusive on-demand AWD. The 2020 Sportsman 850 Premium LE comes in exclusive Matte Navy Blue paint while the 2020 Sportsman 570 Premium LE comes in Matte Nara Bronze paint. Pricing for each model is:
