Polaris RANGER introduces its first-ever Texas Edition utility side-by-side.
We’re fans of the Polaris RANGER at C&I, so much so that we partnered with Polaris to give one away last year. We’re predisposed to love whatever they come out with, but since the magazine is headquartered in Texas, we were especially excited at the announcement this summer that Polaris Ranger introduced the 2020 RANGER XP 1000 Texas Edition and 2020 RANGER XP 1000 CREW Texas Edition.
It’s the kind of utility side-by-side that speaks Texan.
Here’s the scoop from the press materials: “Built on the RANGER XP 1000 platform, the vehicles offer increased performance and durability including unmatched load-adaptive suspension, a Polaris Pro HD 4,500-pound winch and high-performance electrical output to keep the machine going in any condition. Up front, the Texas Edition features a class-leading 11 inches of suspension travel, while the rear receives all-new Nivomat shocks. The load-adaptive rear shocks are designed to automatically adjust to support added weight. This adjustment allows the machine to maintain its 13 inches of class-leading ground clearance and continue delivering a smooth ride, no matter the load. ...

“Additionally, consumers can confidently handle the rugged Texas terrain with the added feature of arched A-arms to maximize ground clearance. The 900W charging system offers maximum electrical output so when Texas heats up, the work doesn’t stop. Combined with the Polaris Pulse electrical system, the Texas Edition is ideal for added electrical accessories including lighting options, extending the work day.”
The Texas Edition comes in both three-seat and CREW models.
“’The RANGER XP 1000 Texas Edition is the hardest-working, smoothest-riding utility vehicle we make. It was specifically designed to serve Texans who work hard and ride harder,’ said Chris Musso, president of Polaris Off Road. ‘Delivering unmatched, load-adaptive suspension and the ability to confidently power electrical accessories in extreme conditions thanks to a 900W charging system, this special edition is the most capable machine available in Texas. To top it off, it comes with a one-of-a-kind paint scheme that looks great.’ …
“A 2,500-pound towing capacity offers the ability to haul and do more. Other model-specific features include a Sport Roof for comfort and protection, Texas-Edition badging, attention-grabbing embroidered cut-and-sew premium seats and a limited Black Cherry Metallic automotive-style premium paint.
“The 2020 RANGER XP 1000 Texas Edition and RANGER CREW XP 1000 Texas Edition have a base U.S. MSRP of $18,899 and $20,299, respectively.”
