2013 Polaris RANGER XP 900 Red LE at Sand Mountain, NV

After the Polaris Industries 2013 Introduction this summer the new RANGER XP 900 was unveiled, I was pretty with this new vehicle. just didn’t stuff a RZR XP 900 900 engine in a RANGER XP 800 chassis. The Polaris RANGER XP 900 is a completely ground-up design.

The RANGER XP 900 a ProStar™ 900 engine that is designed for work applications. It 60 horsepower and pumps out incredible, torque and pulling power. To the power of the new RANGER, Polaris it to pull a dump truck.

And not on flat ground, but also

In addition to the new engine, stretched the wheelbase by 5 and moved the from between the seats to the box for a quieter ride. In addition, the durable drivetrain is built to handle higher horsepower. It the strongest belt ever in a plus powerful cooling for and clutches.

After leaving the media I could not wait to get my hands on a unit. I didn’t have to long. In September, I got a call Placerville Polaris that a Polaris RANGER XP 900 Sunset Red LE was for pickup. in addition to all the great features, my new LE also had:

12 Xcelerator rims with PXT

Integrated driver’s adjustable

Turbo silver painted and rear suspension springs


I put it to work around our property wood pellets and using it for a project. The RANGER XP 900 has a 1000 bed capacity and is well suited for

Then in mid-October, I started to plans with Dave from Fullerton Sand to head to Sand Mountain for weekend. I was planning to bring my new Polaris RZR XP and figured I could another machine with me as Although the RANGER XP 900 is primarily a the thought of seeing how it would do the additional power sparked my

I made the decision to make it an XP 900 RANGER and RZR!

I wanted to see adding sand tires to the XP 900. The bolt pattern is the as the RZR 4-156, but the new RANGER uses a stud than before. The new is a M12x1.50 fine thread is larger than the RZR.

I the best way to handle this is to use a set of that are mounted on OMF Performance center beadlocks. I took the and drilled out the smaller lug size to which is just a tad over a And thankfully the RANGER can still a 12 wheel without a problem.

Got it all and the sand tires fit just

After arriving at Sand I unloaded the RANGER and RZR, Dave Kuskie and headed out in the After a few still shots, I Dave if he wanted to see if it would it to the top. We buzzed over to the and started up the hill. First you notice if you are at all familiar with the RZR XP is the tone the RANGER makes.

The RPM seemed lower to me and the exhaust is About a third way up the hill, it was that we weren’t going to it, so I turned around and headed to camp.

At the top of Sand Mountain

I was a bummed. But the paddle tire Dave told me that I to check air pressure before again. He was right. I had no idea how air I had in the tires and should have before heading into the With beadlocks, you can run a lower air which can really help the car on top of the sand while going up hills.

I know people that run as low as 3 PSI just to get up to the top of Sand Mountain. The at the low pressure is you sacrifice when you hard. The tire is much stable in the turns and starts to in hard turns. I dropped to 6 PSI on all corners and headed back up. It was I had a whole new vehicle.

Really how it just pulled harder all the way to the

With the power to get to the top under our we headed out into the dunes for riding. I tossed the keys to so I could get behind the lens and he right to work. Watching the in action it was hard to remember I had driven it loaded with 900 of wood pellets just a few earlier.

It is pretty obvious it isn’t as sporty as the RZR XP, but I was thoroughly with how well it did.

With 10 inches of front and wheel travel, the suspension did a job soaking up the hits from the The shocks also provided for a ride across the chop of the up dunes.

The 60 inch width of the made it feel very and predictable on side hills. And the STU Razor Blaster tires up helping to steer on steep was a breeze.

I am a big fan of power steering in and the factory installed EPS on my Polaris XP 900 Sunset Red LE did not disappoint. More at slow speeds, but not overbearing at speeds.

The power was adequate for the but not nearly what you would in a RZR XP. At 1,360 lbs, the RANGER is 170 heavier than a RZR XP, and although it has a engine, it is geared for working more power and drivability at speeds. If you come from a RZR XP the sooner you sink that your brain, the better off be!

Our two Polaris XP 900s

I had a great driving the RANGER XP at Sand and I am happy that I decided to it along. If I was going to buy a vehicle for sport, the RZR XP is much better But if I needed to do work, but still get out and hard, I would seriously the new RANGER XP 900.
