2021 POLARIS GENERAL XP 1000 PURSUIT EDITION

2021 POLARIS GENERAL XP 1000 PURSUIT EDITION Many hunters say utility and recreational utility UTVs are the best thing to happen to hunting since camo came along. Some hunters are in a hurry, and they found the faster, better-suspended Polaris General sport utility machine hit the target for the kind of driving they do. The […]

2021 YAMAHA RMAX2 1000 XT-R

2021 YAMAHA RMAX2 1000 XT-R For a decade Yamaha has been trying to improve on the success of the Rhino. That machine started the entire recreational UTV movement back in 2004. At the time, it was fun, fast and ultra capable in gnarly terrain. Fast-forward 17 years and owners want that capability and reliability in […]

2021 CFMOTO ZFORCE 950

2021 CFMOTO ZFORCE 950 The 2021 CFMoto ZForce 950 is a viable candidate for the sport UTV buyer, and it uses the same engine as the 2020 UForce 1000 utility machine we tested in our September 2020 issue. While the power delivery was a bit much for a utility machine, it’s at home in the […]

CAN-AM X3 MAX Xrs TURBO RR

CAN-AM X3 MAX Xrs TURBO RR When UTVs came on the scene, guys would sell the idea of plunking down $15K to the wife or girlfriend by telling her that this was a purchase they could use together. Fast-forward a decade and many machines are costing upwards of $30,000. Now guys are convincing the wives […]

POLARIS COMPARISON: RZR XP 1000 VS. GENERAL DELUXE

RZR XP 1000 VS. GENERAL It’s no secret that Polaris has the most complete line of off-road vehicles, especially in the SxS category. From the original Ranger and RZR to the growing line of Generals, the choices are almost overwhelming. Although the Ranger is a dedicated workhorse, it is no slouch on the trails; however, its […]

CAN-AM X3 X RC TURBO

CAN-AM X3 X RC TURBO If you’re looking for a sport UTV and you’ve wondered if you really need a rock-crawling model, you do. If you never enter the King of the Hammers race or go to Moab, you’ll use every extra the X rc has in normal trail riding sooner or later, and some […]

CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 TURBO RR VS. POLARIS RZR PRO XP ULTIMATE

X3 TURBO RR VS RZR PRO XP We might be jumping the gun at the moment, but as of press time, Polaris hadn’t announced a wide version of the new RZR Pro XP that we could compare to Can-Am’s top-of-the-line Maverick X3 X rs Turbo RR; however, at $27,999 (RZR) and $27,499 (X3), these two […]

POLARIS GENERAL DELUXE

POLARIS GENERAL DELUXE Sport UTVs may be the most fun invention of modern times, and utility UTVs may be the most useful. So, is it at all surprising that the Polaris General sport utility machine is so popular? Also called crossover UTVs, Polaris has expanded the General family to eight machines—five 2-seaters and three 4-seaters—to […]

2020 CFMOTO UFORCE 1000

2020 CFMOTO UFORCE 1000 First it was the ATV, and now utility UTVs are taking over job sites, ranches and farms. Their handiness and price make them worth considering if you need that “right tool for the job.” Some of those tools are not only good for work, they are sporty enough to rip down […]

POLARIS RZR XP1000 PREMIUM Now in its seventh year of production, the 2020 Polaris RZR XP 1000 comes in Base, Limited and Premium packages, plus High Lifter and Rocks & Trails editions.

TEST: MASSIMO T-BOSS 550F

MASSIMO T-BOSS 550F Massimo extends the T-Boss 550 line to three, with the original 550 being joined by the 550X Golf with rear seats instead of a bed and the 550F with a long bed. Although roosting a golf course with a UTV sounds like fun, we got the Massimo T-Boss 550F utility machine for […]

HONDA PIONEER 700-4 DELUXE

HONDA PIONEER 700-4 DELUXE The Honda Pioneer 700-4 Deluxe lets you spend less without compromising. Let’s say you like the Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe’s belt-less geared transmission, convertible multi-passenger seating, power steering, painted bodywork and aluminum wheels, but you’ve only got about $14,000, not $18,000, to spend. If you don’t need 1000-class power, the 700-4 Deluxe […]
