2018 RECREATION 4X4 UTV BUYER’S GUIDE

— Every model with photos, info, specs & prices —

The original Yamaha Rhino 660 started the UTV revolution and evolution, and we highlighted the top 55 sport UTVs last month. The thing is, that Rhino wouldn’t have even qualified for the 2018 sport UTV category, and it would barely make this recreation utility buyer’s guide with a top speed of 40-plus mph. While recreation UTVs have a dump bed and most sport bench seats for utility use, these 54 offerings have enough top speed (45–55-plus mph) and overall performance to be fun for exploring, trail riding, hunting, fishing and/or whatever your adventure may be. For 2018 Can-Am introduces a new Defender HD10 X mr and Max HD10 Lone Star Edition, Polaris completely reworked the Ranger XP 1000 and offers two Special Editions (and two Crew XP 1000 SEs), while Honda offers a Limited Edition Pioneer 1000 and 1000-5. Yamaha adds Ranch Edition Vikings and Viking VIs to its Special Edition lineup, while Kawasaki introduces the all-new sporty Mule Pro-FXR and Ranch Edition Pro-FX and Pro-FXT. Kymco gives the UXV700i a huge makeover and offers new LE Prime and LE Hunter Editions.
