Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Crew Northstar Police – Here Are All the Accessories and Specs!

These Rangers are ready for service!

Polaris Ranger Crew XP 1000 Crew Northstar Police and security UTV – with HAVAC

Several Polaris Ranger Crew XP 1000 Northstar police and security models were delivered to the US Customs and Border Protection. This (nearly) $2-million dollar order was for special, up-fitted models built by MacGyver Solutions.

“US Customs & Border Protection will utilize the final vehicle configuration to carry out its mission of providing for border security—including anti-terrorism, immigration, anti-smuggling, trade compliance, and agriculture protection; while simultaneously facilitating the lawful trade and travel at U.S. ports of entry. ” – – MacGyver Solutions

These vehicles begin life as a Polaris Ranger Crew XP 1000. It has a 999cc ProStar engine that makes 82 HP and 62 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with an
On-Demand True AWD/2WD/VersaTrac (with Turf Mode) drive system, it has a “passively variable transmission,” which is similar to a CVT.

You can read about the specifications in detail (here).

MacGyver Solutions adds to the enclosed, six-passenger cabin – heating and air conditioning. It also adds an emergency lighting kit, premium light bar, siren, PA system, all trail tires and custom graphics.

Here’s the rundown on additions for the Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Crew Northstar Police:

  • Polaris® Deluxe Emergency Light Kit
  • Polaris Premium Emergency Light Bar
  • Siren & Public Address System (100W)
  • Custom Police/Sheriff Graphics Kit
  • Black/White Law Enforcement Body Panels
  • All Trail Tires (on/off road)

The nearly $2-million dollar price-tag was made public, but the actual production number were not. We estimate that 70 – 100 units were built and delivered. Considering all of the other UTVs and ATVs used by Federal and State government agencies, this type of purchase makes sense.

The question is: will there be more orders? We suspect there will be.
