For riders looking to elevate their off-road adventure, the new GENERAL 1000 Sport is their ticket into the off-road’s premier sport-utility side-by-side lineup. Built to take on back-forty jobs and backcountry trails, the new Sport model delivers all the class-leading capability, comfort and style that GENERAL is known for. Polaris took everything riders know and love from the GENERAL 1000 base model and added a new exterior color, eye-catching graphics, color-matched springs and trail-ready, 12-inch aluminum wheels – all for a new starting price of $15,999.

“Polaris is committed to growing the off-road community, and it starts with putting the customer at the center of everything we do. This has never been more evident than in the release of these new models,” said Steven Menneto, president of Off Road, Polaris. “The GENERAL 1000 Sport makes off-road adventure more accessible with a new starting price while delivering more value with enhanced features.”

Whether trail riding with friends and family, tackling the next task on the property or trekking to a favorite camp site, the GENERAL 1000 Sport is factory-equipped to elevate any adventure. True on- demand all-wheel drive and a class-leading 100-horsepower ProStar 1000 engine provide sure-footed traction and ample power to confidently take on any trail and have fun along the way. A class-leading 12-inches of suspension travel and 12-inches of ground clearance ensure the ride is smooth even when the terrain is not, while bolstered bucket seats and standard half doors further enhance rider comfort. For adventures requiring more gear, riders can haul up-to 600-lbs in the dumping cargo box and tow up- to 1,500-lbs.
