The Polaris General XP 1000 Factory Custom is a side-by-side that does it all.

If you purchase a Polaris General XP 1000 Factory Custom, you’re getting a side-by-side that has a lot of additional equipment. Polaris looked at the popular equipment that customers add on to their vehicle and went a step further with the Polaris Factory Custom. It is comprehensively equipped, and it has a lot of custom touches.

Tool and toy

The Polaris General is what they call a “crossover,” given its ability to be a hard working appliance and a off-road toy. It sits between the Ranger and the RZR. The base model Polaris General starts at $15,999.

Like other Polaris General XP 1000’s it comes with a 100 horsepower ProStar 1000 engine, CVT transmission and ride-command.

On top of the basics, the Factory Custom comes with:

  • Real bead-locks on 5-inch wheels
  • Adjustable Walker Evans shocks
  • Unique seat and steering wheel design
  • Unique bumpers
  • Lightbar
  • Unique overall color Scheme
  • Rockford Fosgate Stage 4 stereo
  • 30 inch Pro-armor tires (with unique tread, front-to-back)

This example is overbuilt through the good people at Polaris. It is a beefed up version of an already beefed up side-by-side. On top of that we get an in-deph explanation and example of how the vehicle-to-vehicle (“Ride Command”) connection system works.

Prices for the two-passenger LE start at $25,999 and $27,999 for the four-passenger LE. That’s $1,000 over the standard General with Ride-Command. For some, this may save a few bucks if they want lots of accessories.

The Polaris General XP 1000 Factory Custom went on sale on October 1st.
