  • Engine Air Intake – Material used for the engine intake is now blow molded, resulting in improved durability at higher temperatures, ultimately unlocking the ability to go full throttle longer. 
  • Rear Shock Guards – Improved rear shock guards now feature sides that index to the shock to help avoid rotation. 
  • Lightweight Wheels – New wheels that are 18-percent lighter allow for increased agility to conquer the world’s most challenging trails. 
  • Design – Improved clutch alignment and resulting shift effort along with door latch bumper updates result in less rattle while driving.

In addition to the above upgrades, all model year 2021 RZR models—except for the RZR 570—come standard with a new in-dash trickle charge port adapter.
