Say goodbye to the Polaris Ranger 900 and prepare yourself to usher in a new era of UTV greatness. The 2020 Polaris Ranger lineup is here, and it offers a little something for everyone -- the 81hp Polaris Ranger 1000XP for the young bucks looking for speed and the Polaris Ranger 1000 designed to run cooler for men who work them all day long. The new SOHC engine makes the 2020 Ranger 1000 a true utility machine. The power was lowered to help with reliability, while the torque specs were increased for greater pulling abilities and more giddy-up-and-go. Polaris has also dialed in the mid-band clutching, so even though there is less HP, the machine makes better use of what it has.
If you have a look at a dyno graph you can see where in the rpm range the new Ranger 1000 motor makes the 55 ft-lbs of torque. The 900 Ranger made right around 50, and the new motor in the 1000 edition makes a bit more.The major difference between the two is where they make it. While the 900 puts out around 50 ft-lbs of torque at 5500 rpm, the new 1000 engine puts out 55 ft-lbs of torque at only 3500 rpm. If you’re looking for a reliable machine that can both work hard and play hard, the 2020 Polaris Ranger lineup has something for you. Depending on when you’re reading this, a few 2020 Rangers have probably trickled into your local dealer. With many great improvements in the 2020 Polaris Ranger, a little patience will go a long way.
