Polaris Sportsman 850 XP EFI

Nearly entirely new from the ground up, the 850 XP has a new chassis design, upgraded suspension, better clutching and a larger front and rear rack capacity. The Sportsman XP sports the second largest engine capacity in the industry, so it is built to take on challenging terrain.

While much of the 850 XP is new, it features on-demand, all-wheel drive that automatically delivers torque to all four wheels and reverts to two-wheel drive when it's not needed. In addition, it is equipped with Polaris' active descent control, which provides automatic engine braking when traveling downhill.


Other noteworthy features include all-new digital instrumentation, new ergonomics and anti-kickback steering. The 850 XP is available with the optional electronic power steering system. Cut with rugged, masculine body lines, the Ranger 700 XP is heavily updated for 2009.


Improvements include a new cab design that adds more legroom, tilt steering, repositioned throttle and brake pedals and bench seat. A new dual A-arm front suspension, front end with recessed headlights and fully protected radiator and front differential highlight other design changes.

Polaris Ranger 700 XP

The 2009 XP has 140 percent more storage, thanks to the new glove box, four interior compartments and a sizeable under-seat area. The XP can haul 1,000 pounds of gear in its rear cargo bed and tow up to one ton. At the heart of the Ranger XP is a 683cc, twin-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection.


Top speed is 50 mph. Like other Polaris off-road vehicles, the Ranger is equipped with on-demand all-wheel drive that automatically senses when the rear wheels slip, signaling both front wheels to engage for additional traction.
