Polaris RANGER Earns Field & Stream Magazine’s Prestigious “Best of the Best” Award

November 27, 2019 GMT

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2019--

Field & Stream Magazine has honored Polaris RANGER, America’s No.1-selling utility side-by-side vehicle, with their 2019 “Best of the Best” award for the RANGER XP 1000 with Back Country Package. The RANGER XP 1000 with Back Country Package is the only utility side-by-side vehicle to make the list of the most innovative and outstanding new outdoor gear of the year.

“For two decades, Polaris RANGER has been a trusted partner for hunters operating in remote locations,” said Chris Musso, President of Off Road for Polaris. “We engineered the RANGER XP 1000 with the Back Country Package to excel in extreme conditions and rough terrain. Being recognized as ‘Best of the Best’ by Field & Stream is a testament to the countless hours put in by our engineering team to produce vehicles that allow hunters to go further and get more out of their hunt.”

Introduced earlier this year, the RANGER XP 1000 with Back Country Package is available in exclusive Polaris Pursuit® Camo and offers features avid hunters need and demand. The 82 horsepower ProStar® 1000 engine paired with a reduced gear ratio transmission offers increased durability and strength while high-mount air intakes ensure clean air reaches the engine and clutches when navigating water crossings or wet terrain. Class-leading 13-inches of ground clearance is maximized with arched A-arms to navigate unforgiving terrain. A Polaris Pro 4,500 LB HD winch mounted to the industry’s largest stock front bumper provides big pulling power and the confidence to conquer anything thrown its way.
