This week, the folks at Polaris unveiled an upgrade to the RZR XP Turbo S, introducing a four-seat model to what is already one of the most aggressive off-road vehicles on the market. With four seats now, there’s nothing else like it, as the XP 4 Turbo S becomes the first four seat off-roader with a 72-inch stance, 32-inch tires and 16 inches of ground clearance, allowing it to power its way through whatever terrain is in front of you.
For more than 60 years, Polaris has been one of the global leaders in powersports, with the Minnesota-based company’s products available in over 100 countries. The company boasts that the RZR XP 4 Turbo S is perhaps the strongest, and most powerful, vehicle its ever made – thanks to a reinforced chassis and bigger, stronger axles. Now you can bring three of your pals with you when you glide through the mud and rocks with the ease of a trophy truck, all because of tires that are 249 percent more resistant to punctures than the competition. But with all that power, it’s not like you’ll be bouncing all over the place, either. This new four-seater has a rugged toughness that’s complemented by a DYNAMIX Active Suspension system, which optimizes every inch of the vehicle’s 25-inches of Useable Travel before bottoming out on the skid plate. That way, drivers will be able to make the most out of the 168 horses at their disposal. Yes, you read that correctly – 168-horsepower. Oh and did we mention that this time around there’s recalibrated throttle mapping and and a redesigned clutch box, allowing for better air flow and decreased belt temperatures? Just one more badass characteristic of this four-seater.
“The launch of the Turbo S platform was met with overwhelming excitement from our consumers, we knew the next step was to make it available in a four-seat model,” Chris Musso, president of Off-Road Vehicles, Polaris. “As a result, we effectively raised the bar again, setting the standard in 72-inch side-by-side performance.”
The various RZR models have always been a ton of fun, whether in the dirt, snow or sand but considering this new XP 4 Turbo S model has 168 horsepower – almost as much as the 2018 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk’s 180-horsepower – and offers the stability and control long expected from Polaris’ off-road vehicles, it just looks like it would be a lot of fun. And definitely something that we wouldn’t mind taking for a spin. If you want to get your hands one one, the four-seater XP 4 Turbo S will be available at dealerships by the middle of this month and starts at $30,499 – which puts it a little out of our price range.
