POLARIS RZR RS1

Surprised to see a Polaris RZR among the 1000cc UTVs Under $15,000?  The Polaris RZR RS1 joins the performance of the 110-horsepower engine that powers the RZR XP 1000 with a much lighter single-seat UTV. This 1340pound, 64-inch-wide machine’s power and agility have made it a popular racing machine. At $14,999, it’s also a great performance value and an exciting machine for play riding thanks to the unique balance and exceptional visibility the single-seat platform provides.

The RS1 features double A-arm front suspension with Walker Evans 2.0 piggyback needle shocks and trailing-arm rear suspension with Walker Evans 2.5 remote-reservoir needle shocks.

1000cc RECREATION UTVs UNDER $15,000

TRACKER SVX1000

Tracker’s 64-inch-wide SVX1000 sport utility UTV is made by Arctic Cat and is essentially a re-badged version of Arctic Cat’s impressive but discontinued Havoc 1000. It’s the only sport utility model in our guide to 1000cc UTVs under $15,000. The SVX1000 has fewer standard features than the Havoc 1000, but it’s an incredible value at $14,499. A 100-horsepower inline twin-cylinder engine with great throttle response provides the power. Double-A-arm front and rear suspension with spring preload adjustable shocks offers nearly 13 inches of travel. For $15,199, the camo model includes TrueTimber Strata Camouflage bodywork and a Warn 4000-pound winch.

The SVX1000 also comes with an extended cab with 24 feet of storage space, power steering, bolstered bench seats for two, full doors, steel front brush guard, a customizable speed controller, an adjustable backlit LCD instrument display with on-board diagnostics, 12V DC outlet, a full-length polymer skid plate, front and rear sway bars, LED headlights, LED accent lights, and 27-inch tires on 14-inch steel wheels. The SVX1000’s utility capabilities are as impressive as its sport performance. This machine can tow a ton, and its tilting bed can carry 600 pounds of cargo. The bed features Tracker’s Fast-N-Latch storage system. Tracker also offers Trail, Backcountry, Premium hard cab and Winter accessory packages for the SVX1000.

POLARIS RANGER 1000/EPS

The Polaris Ranger 1000 is powered by a 999cc, single-overhead-cam, two-valve-per-cylinder inline twin with 61 horsepower and 55 pound-feet of torque. With peak torque 3000 rpm lower than the Ranger XP 900 it replaced, the 1000 pulls hard without revving hard, which makes it feel smoother and more relaxed at the engine speeds recreation/utility UTV drivers use more often. The transmission’s clutching provides precise throttle response and very smooth engagement right off idle, just what you want on challenging trails and in precise maneuvers when doing chores. The Ranger 1000 is all about smooth, strong power—not winning drag races. If you need a recreation utility machine with more top-end thrust, there’s the 82-horsepower Ranger XP 1000. For 2021, Ranger XP 1000s feature a stronger front drive and more durable suspension components.

The base Ranger 1000 has steel wheels, unpainted bodywork and no power steering. The Ranger 1000 EPS is $13,999 and has power steering, steel wheels and unpainted bodywork. See UTV Action’s full test of the Ranger 1000 here: https://utvactionmag.com/test-polaris-ranger-1000-eps/.

CFMOTO UFORCE 1000 EPS

Priced at only $12,199, or $12,649 in camo, CFMoto’s UForce 1000 is the lowest-priced 1000cc-class recreation utility machine from a major UTV manufacturer. This is not a stripped base model; it’s full of features that cost extra on most machines. Painted bodywork, cast-aluminum wheels, 27-inch tires, 3500-pound winch, roof, full skid plates, heavy-duty bumper, high-intensity LED projector headlights, LED running lights and front and rear receiver type hitches are all standard equipment.

A 79-horsepower V-twin with 60 pound-feet of torque supplies the power, and this machine can tow a ton and carry 1000 pounds of cargo in its tilting bed. The CFMoto UForce 1000’s bench seat seats three, and there are multiple storage bins within easy reach in the roomy cab, plus a removable storage box.
