Polaris has officially released its 2023 off-road lineup. Vehicles from the RZR, General, Ranger, and Sportsman lineup all see changes for this year. There’s also a new version of Ride Command, Polaris’ in-vehicle technology package.
RZR Turbo R receives styling updates, with new black fenders and rockers and two new colors, including Orange Madness and Matte Onyx Black. The RZR Pro XP Premium trim gets a new Rockford Fosgate PMX head unit.
New for 2023 is the General XP 1000 Sport model, a more affordable entry-level model, available in two and four-seat configurations. It will start at $18,199.
The Ranger XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss gets new LED bed lighting, a 12v power port in the bed, and a new overhead switch panel for easy accessory upgrades (these features are also available as accessory upgrades on all other Ranger XP 1000 and Ranger 1000 vehicles). It also comes standard with the Ride Command+ (see below for more info).
Sportsman 450, 750, and 850 ATV models receive new color options. Sportsman 250 and 570 models get redesigned rear rack extenders to help riders pack more cargo. New CV guards have been fitted to 570 EPS and Premium models for added protection.
Ride Command is the Polaris-exclusive in-vehicle GPS and group ride software. Polaris is launching a new Ride Command+ subscription service. With a cellular connection attached to the Ride Command system in the vehicle, owners can check its status remotely from a smartphone or web browser. Features include a vehicle locator with location and bump alerts and a health feature that can run diagnostic reports and check fuel/charge levels. When properly equipped, vehicles will also be able to receive over-the-air updates.
Ride Command+ will be a standard feature on all 2023 Ranger XP Kinetic models and the 2023 Ranger XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss Edition. It will be an add-on for the Ranger 1000, Ranger 1000, Ranger XP 1000, Ranger 570, Sportsman 570, Sportsman 450, Sportsman 850, and Sportsman XP 1000.
