POLARIS RZR TRAIL ULTIMATE/PREMIUM

The Polaris RZR Trail Ultimate/Premium feature full doors, a high-clearance radiused cage for easy entry and exit, aggressive RZR XP-inspired front-end styling and a roomy interior.

The Ultimate is the best equipped RZR Trail model. It comes with Ride Command navigation, ride sharing and connectivity, Rockford Fosgate audio, roof, Fox Podium shocks, a rear differential with Turf mode for tighter turns, painted bodywork, power steering, aluminum wheels and LED headlights and accent lights.

The RZR Trail Premium comes with painted bodywork, power steering, aluminum wheels, LED headlights and accent lights. Instant throttle response, 75 horsepower and agile handling make the 50-inch-wide RZR 900 Trail models a blast to drive. Front and rear sway bars, light weight and good weight distribution give the 900 a flat, sure feel in slow and fast turns, and it can slide controllably on low-traction surfaces. The RZR’s suspension is fairly firm, which is to be expected on a vehicle with 10 inches of travel, but it’s surprisingly compliant and comfortable on small impacts. The slightly firm settings let you push the RZR on bumpy trails, and it will handle G-outs and even some decent-size jumps without bottoming.
