R Pro XP’s explosive power and comfortable cabin make it an easy all-day trail rig.Mike Emery Since 2007, Polaris has been on a warpath to create the ultimate enthusiast sport UTV. In 2019, Polaris introduced the new-generation RZR platform, the Pro XP. Now, two years later, Polaris has made the announcement that it will no longer be offering its previous-generation XP Turbo or XP Turbo S for sale after the 2021 model year. We are officially entering the next generation of Polaris UTVs. The previous-generation RZR dates back to 2014, when the XP 1000 was released to a very gracious public. Its release started a wave in the UTV industry that we are still riding, as it offered an amazing amount of performance potential in a 64-inch-wide chassis at a low cost. The Pro XP builds on that same philosophy, but ushers in a new frame architecture that improves on the outgoing models. The Pro XP offers increased interior volume and amenities, a higher level of comfort, more horsepower, and much easier accessory integration. New for 2022, all Pro XP models get a 900-watt dual-wound stator with dual voltage regulators. Previously only found on Dynamix-equipped models, the new high-output charging system is a welcome addition. The Pro chassis is an evolution of Polaris’ design philosophy, which means it does not prioritize all-out performance over all-day comfort. The 64-inch-wide car offers great suspension performance for its footprint, but does not pack the handling prowess of the wider, more sport-focused RZRs Polaris has offered in the past. We expect to see a 72-inch-wide sport model on this new platform very soon, as we know Polaris has been working on that and other higher-spec versions of the Pro. While it is sad to see the older RZR we know and love finally be put to bed, the leaps in comfort, performance, and quality that are possible with this new architecture are astounding. On the inside, the Pro is a nice place to be. Having a wider cab and much more interior volume than previous RZRs gives the Pro chassis an immediate leg up. The seat sits lower than any other 64-inch RZR, more reminiscent of a Yamaha YXZ or Can-Am X3 seating position. Indents in the door panels leave plenty of room for your knees, and the dash and cab layout is a big upgrade from previous models. New toggle switches for the lights and 4WD systems replace the standard rocker switches for a more upscale feel, and top-tier models even feature controls for some of the electronic systems fitted to the steering wheel. Polaris is aiming for automotive levels of comfort and convenience, and they are getting there quickly.
