Polaris showed its new line of mid-sized utility vehicles at The ARA Show. The new mid-size model of the Pro XD UTV is designed for lighter payloads, tighter spaces and comfort.
The vehicles comes in two- and four-seat versions with a capable 500-pound capacity cargo bed. Uses for the mid-size model include all-terrain and all-weather utility or people movement for applications like construction, events, set-up, landscaping and facilities and ground maintenance.
Built to withstand tough duty cycles and daily worksite use, the Pro XD line-up features durability, serviceability and safety features. Full-sized Pro XD models are offered in both gas and diesel with strong payload and towing capacities. The mid-sized model takes the same purpose-built features that work customers value in the full-size Pro XD, and delivers them in a more compact profile, with capable payload and towing capacities at a lower price point.
The compact size further increases agility while maintaining a 200-hour service interval for longer uptime. The mid-size Pro XD model offers a smooth ride, while providing a 500-pound box capacity, ample hauling and towing capabilities for mid-size applications – and with two- and four-seat options, room for the whole work crew. Additionally, the small footprint allows for easy access to narrow spaces.
“Not all of our customers need to haul over 1,000 pounds in the cargo bed, but they still want a heavy-duty driveline, 200-hour intervals between oil changes, durable components and vehicle fault alarms,” said Aaron Stegemann, director of commercial sales, service and customer experience, Polaris Commercial. “By focusing on the commercial customer, we can dial in to deliver incredible value with the new mid-size model of the Pro XD and continue to produce the best commercial UTVs available for the entire work UTV market.”
Safety components include adjustable speed calibration, operator warnings, back up horn and pedestrian alarms, highly visible lights, and improved sightlines for greater visibility. Additionally, the Pro XD cab has been engineered to create the tightest sealing doors and roof possible, keeping harmful dust and weather out.
The mid-size model is engineered with long-lasting and robust components. Overall cost of ownership is lowered because of high-quality features built to last such as heavy-duty driveline components, as well as puncture-resistant Kevlar-backed vinyl seats and 8-ply nondirectional tires.
The mid-size Pro XD model includes a Polaris Pro-Star 570 DOHC engine that has a 200-hour oil change interval. Additionally, features are designed with universal and simple-to-replace parts such as common-size tires and accessories.
The complete Pro XD lineup also provides unmatched versatility and customizability with accessories that enhance productivity in all climates, while also supporting jobsite compliance and safety requirements.
The expansive accessories catalog is available to view on the Polaris Commercial website, where customers can also experience the vehicle virtually.
