Our man Alex put the new Polaris Ranger SP 570 to the test. Starting at $10,499 (U.S. MSRP) it’s a rugged bargain of a worker, that likes to play.

It’s not Alex is brutal (he can be), but he truly hammered the Polaris Ranger SP 570 UTV at a Polaris event. During his muddy ride, he came away with some positive conclusions. Remember, the Ranger SP 570 was built as a rugged work machine. One that can be easily stored, transported, and maneuvered. The fact that it is a hoot to hustle is a byproduct of the UTV builder trying to make all things to all consumers.

That also means that these vehicles are fairly affordable. Starting at $10,499, a fully loaded Ranger SP 570 Crew North Star Edition tops off at about $20,000. Typical to Polaris, there are many accessories that can pump up the price as well.

The Ranger SP 570 is powered by a 44-horsepower, 567cc,four-stroke, single-cylinder DOHC engine. With a dry weight of 1,139 lbs and a fuel capacity of 9.5-gallons – the SP 570 is sprightly and frugal. On top of that, its tight and light dimensions make it easier to move.
