2019 UTV BUYER’S GUIDE: recreational Utility models

— There’s one here just right for you —

As UTV technology evolves and advances, the line between utility and recreation blurs and, in some cases, disappears. Advances in suspension and engine performance have today’s recreational UTVs attaining trail speeds and overall comfort of the sport machines of 10 or less years ago. With top speeds of 40–55+ mph, these recreational utility machines blow their 20-mph predecessors into the weeds. That is why we no longer include utility UTVs that can’t go faster than 25 mph, although some of today’s machines have work-site keys or other speed-limiting systems. For 2019, explorers and weekend warriors alike will be impressed with all-new lines of machines like Textron’s Prowler Pro and Pro Crew, and Yamaha’s all-new Wolverine X2 and R-Spec, which replace the iconic Wolverine 700 line. Polaris celebrates 20 years of Rangers with a 20th Anniversary Ranger XP 1000 EPS and 1000 Crew Limited Editions. Textron also introduces the Havoc 1000 Backcountry Edition, which was introduced too late to make our 2018 guide, for 2019. Can-Am continues with a stellar line-up of Defenders and Commanders but didn’t update them with the high-tech Smart-Lok front diff and EPS settings from Mavericks. Cub Cadet unleashes the new Challenger MX 750 and 550. Overall, it’s a great year to go recreating and exploring in a UTV!
