The Goodwood Festival of Speed is renowned for attracting the best vehicles, drivers and brands in motoring since 1993, and 2018 is set to be no different. Described as ‘motorsport’s ultimate summer garden party, an intoxicating display of speed and power’, where better for Polaris to show their latest recreational and sport utility vehicles.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic RANGER model this year, Polaris will be showcasing the latest model in the range, the RANGER XP 1000 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Boasting class leading power (82hp) and torque (61lb-ft), the RANGER XP 1000 raises the bar with over one hundred user-inspired improvements. Besides it’s enhanced performance, the RANGER XP 1000 also has new bold and aggressive styling, and feels more refined and comfortable, so it’s sure to attract attention at the upcoming event.
Alongside the RANGER will be the new, revolutionary RZR DYNAMIX – introducing the future of ride and handling. The RZR DYNAMIX Active Suspension is the world’s only off-road suspension system that’s intelligent enough to continuously adjust your shock absorbers on the fly, meaning you no longer have to choose between ‘comfortable’ or ‘performance’ because DYNAMIX adapts to any situation, depending on how you drive. This is the world’s most powerful RZR, delivering an incredible 168hp and up to 114lb-ft of peak torque.
Also on display will be the Polaris GENERAL, the industry’s best selling crossover side by side. If you want the hardworking nature of the RANGER, and the performance of the RZR, the GENERAL provides the power and versatility needed for any trail, and any task. With the industry’s fastest engaging high-performance AWD, all four wheels engage when it needs more forward traction, and revert back to 2WD when it doesn’t. It’s easy to see how the GENERAL is best in class, pumping out 100hp to take you from 0 to 40mph in 3.6 seconds, and featuring advantages like ABS brakes, 12 inches of ground clearance, and dual bolstered bucket seats.
Goodwood will also see the new Sportsman XP 1000, Polaris’s most powerful ATV ever produced. With a 90 horsepower ProStar EPS engine, electronic power steering, high performance all-wheel drive, and legendary suspension and handling, the Sportsman is packed with new performance features.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is presented by MasterCard and runs from 12 – 15 July 2018, 7am – 7pm each day.
