2015 Polaris RZR Lineup
Polaris RZR® is the No. 1 brand of sport side-by-sides, outselling its nearest competitor by leaps and bounds. That’s because RZR relentlessly innovates, offering the very best lineup for every type of off-road sport riding. Owning a RZR has become more than enjoying the dunes, desert or trail, it is a community of owners who share the RZR lifestyle due to their passion for not only off-roading but the ultimate experiences RZR provides. Model year 2015 brings the launch of RZR’s biggest line-up ever with all-new products and significant innovations to every single segment, for every type of riding to continue to fuel the RZR lifestyle.
For trail riders, RZR goes back to its roots and redefines the first two RZR products ever introduced with the new 2015 RZR 900 and RZR S 900. These vehicles feature unequalled power, highly-capable suspensions, unmatched agility and revolutionary ergonomics and styling. At the heart of the RZR 900 and RZR S 900 is a 75 horsepower ProStar® 900 engine offering improved power-to-weight ratio and faster acceleration. The new ProStar power plants offer more than 40 percent more horsepower and15 percent more torque than the previous RZR 800 models. Polaris’ ProStar engines have become the pinnacle of performance engines for RZR due to their efficiency, acceleration and durability. For more power to the ground, the vehicles also feature the extremely durable RZR XP transmission which is specifically geared to optimize the power of the engine.
For trails that are width-restricted to 50 in/127 cm, the RZR 900 features a highly-capable, Dual A-Arm Rear Front and Rear Suspension with 11 in/27.94 cm of ground clearance*, and 10 in/25.4 cm front and rear travel to overtake any obstacles thrown in its way. The 26 in/66 cm PXT tires are Polaris-proven and provide all the traction needed even for the toughest trail. The vehicles are more razor sharp through the corners thanks to the optimized track width. Optimization comes from maximizing the track width while maintaining the overall width. For all other trails, the RZR S 900 has an unrivaled suspension featuring a Dual A-Arm Front and Rear Suspension with 12.25 in/31.11 cm front, 13.2 in/33.5 cm rear suspension travel and 12.5 in/31.75 cm of ground clearance. Outfitted with new, eight-ply, 27 in/68.58 cm GBC Dirt Commander Tires that offer better side bite, stiffer sidewalls, better tracking through corners and increased durability, the RZR S 900 won’t let anything stand in its way.
*With adjustable suspension. See owner’s manual for details
For unmatched agility, Polaris utilized a few features found on the RZR XP 1000 to ensure the RZR 900 and RZR S 900 perform at their finest whether they are dodging trees on the trail or navigating through gnarly switchbacks. While all RZR vehicles are equipped with On-Demand True All Wheel Drive (AWD), Polaris utilizes its High-Performance AWD on the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and 900 Trail models to keep the front wheels pulling stronger and longer maximizing power delivery to the ground in every condition for a more responsive ride. Both units also feature a narrow turning radius to navigate curvy trails and a 20 percent faster steering response. With an improved two-turn, lock-to-lock steering ratio, it’s easy to keep your hands on the steering wheel while navigating around any obstacle or hairpin turn encountered on the trail. The units’ ultra-rigid, tubular chassis also provides substantial improvements in stiffness and durability, and complement the all new suspensions. The trail capable 50 in/127 cm width and 79 in/200.7 cm wheelbase is the perfect combination to ensure the RZR 900 is responsive and agile on the trail, and the standard Engine Braking System (EBS), EPS and Turf mode available on the RZR 900 Trail Editions provide the most agile, controlled ride whether traversing mountain sides or running down your favorite forest trail. The RZR S 900’s 60 in/152.4 cm width and 79 in/200.7 cm wheelbase provides an incredibly stable footprint for riding in wide-open spaces while the EPS-equipped units make sure the vehicle takes the brunt of what that space has to offer.
For 2014, the RZR XP 1000 was launched with revolutionary ergonomics and styling and for 2015, the new RZR 900 and RZR S 900 also feature many of the same, unique features.
The newly-designed seats offer improved bolstering and 100 percent more hip cushioning for a more secure feel, and feature a new thin-film technology under the cover for a drier ride in wet conditions. The driver-side seat slider on the Limited Edition models allow for tool-less, on-the-ready seat adjustment along with additional leg room, and space-optimized dead pedals for both the driver and passenger make for a more secure ride. The driver also will appreciate a new, stiffer steering wheel designed for comfort and a more responsive feel. The vehicles also feature factory-installed quarter doors for extra protection from debris, and easier ingress and egress. For improved adjustability, the units feature the innovative, flow-through tongue seat belt design that is easier to adjust and retract. The sealed belt retractor housing ensures the belts will endure through the nastiest conditions. To stay on the trail longer, the vehicles sport a larger 9.5 gal/36 L fuel tank.
Inside the cockpit, the units feature LED floor lighting and a slick blue back-lighted instrument cluster, readable both in direct sunlight and at night. To take more stuff along, a large center storage area and a bigger glove box with new latch provide ample space for any items needed during the ride while the deeper rear box provides ample space for additional cargo. Sealed floor seams and equipment pass-throughs keep the occupants cleaner; while dual removable floor drains allow for easier clean out of the cabin.
The RZR 900 and RZR S 900 are even easier to service due to the ease of access of the major components. The air filter, spark plugs and oil fill are now located under the removable box panel in the cargo box of the vehicle while a panel between the seats houses the dipstick and oil filter, and is accessible without removing the seats. The vehicles feature an integrated transmission with only one check/fill point and grease zerks for both the inboard and outboard bushings of the A-arms. To add electric accessories easier, the vehicles feature a terminal block for wiring under the hood and a bigger battery with 44 Amp-hours of capacity and 575 cold-cranking amps.
RZR enthusiasts love to accessorize their vehicles and the RZR 900 and RZR S 900 feature integrated accessory mounting locations, hidden wire routing areas within the cab frame and more than 130 accessories for more customization.
The purpose-built vehicle chassis is exclusively engineered for Polaris accessories. With integrated mounting points situated along the vehicle frame and pass-through areas for routing wires, accessories can be attached with minimal installation time. Additions, such as rock sliders and bumpers, easily attach and fit securely to the vehicle’s frame due to Polaris’ innovative Lock & Ride® Expanding Anchor; a revolutionary piece of hardware that expands as it is inserted into a mounting point. Lock & Ride® windshields, rear panels, roofs and doors work seamlessly with each other and install directly onto designated mounting
points, making installation simple, and providing superior fit and finish.

The vehicles were built for the pinnacle of performance with an all-new Polaris ProStar 1000 engine that provided an industry leading 107 horsepower with a true 999ccs of displacement, making it the most powerful and largest engine in its class. For 2015, Polaris ups the ante again by giving the vehicles a higher output 110 horsepower ProStar 1000, to keep RZR at the top of
To achieve 110 horsepower, the 2015 RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 feature a new calibration with high-output cams, stiffer valve springs and a higher compression ratio of 11:1. The upgraded horsepower further increases the RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 dominance in power with nine-percent more power than anything else in their classes. A revised exhaust system, incorporating closed loop control and catalyst technology, enables the ProStar 1000 to not simply add power, but also be cleaner and more efficient. To handle the increased power, the 2015 RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 feature new direct flow intake covers, new belt and a new clutch cover with more ducting providing two times more airflow directly to the clutches.
The RZR XP 1000 will be available in Havasu Red Pearl, Voodoo Blue and White Lightning. The RZR XP 4 1000 will come in Havasu Red Pearl and Voodoo Blue. Both vehicles feature standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS).
Also new for 2015, RZR is introducing its first mud machine, the new RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Edition, built for the true mud rider. To tackle the mud, Polaris took the vehicle’s massive power from the ProStar 1000 and reduced the gearing for more mud specific torque and added a heavy-duty reverse chain. To ensure the power plant breathes, the unit features high engine air and clutch intakes and outlet which are essential for reliable performance. The redesigned front axles, stiffer suspension springs, higher-clearance lower A-Arms and radius rods, mud-specific Walker Evans shocks, 29.5 in/74.93 cm High Lifter Outlaw II tires
and standard EPS provide a suspension and handling that will excel in the mud.

For added protection from muddy conditions and easier cleaning, the vehicle sports an improved drainage skid plate, custom powder-coated chassis, and sealed switches, fuse box and battery to ensure optimal protection for vital components. The sharp High Lifter graphics kit is an endorsement from one of the
leaders in mud riding and ensures the High Lifter Edition is all business in the bog. The RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Edition offers all these premium mud features and accessories for a MSRP of $23,499, less than what it would cost to add them individually, and can go from the showroom to that favorite mud hole in a matter of minutes.
For the desert community, Polaris is introducing for 2015 is the RZR XP 1000 Desert Edition. This unit features all the new upgrades for 2015 with additional features for optimal desert riding. For improved ground clearance, the RZR XP 1000 Desert Edition sports high-clearance A-Arms and radius rods, 18 in/45.7 cm rear and 16 in/40.6 cm front suspension travel, a 13 in/33 cm ground clearance and 15 in/38.1 cm beadlocks with 30 in/76.2 cm Mongrel Tires.

For an easier ride for the occupants, the vehicle features six-point seatbelts, roof, PRP seats, a cargo box to store necessities and LED light bar for added visibility.

The full-color, 4.3 in/10.92 cm, LCD display provides riders with vehicle performance, operating conditions, riding conditions and Bluetooth™ capabilities. The vehicle diagnostics displays fault codes and descriptions with some corrective actions to keep the vehicle running in top condition.

Polaris RANGER is the hardest working, smoothest riding line of utility vehicles available with two-passenger, full size and multi-passenger vehicles for hunt, farm and trail. For Model Year 2015, 75 percent of RANGER’s line up receives performance upgrades, and restyling based on the line’s flagship vehicle, the RANGER XP 900.
Introduced for Model Year 2013, the RANGER XP 900 defined an all-new class of Hardest Working, Smoothest Riding and became one of the most popular side-by-sides for both recreational and work use. For 2014, all the benefits of the RANGER XP 900 were added to the multi passenger RANGER CREW 900.New for 2015, the two-passenger RANGER line makes a huge leap in styling, ergonomics, versatility and accessory integration equal to the RANGER XP 900 line.
