The UTV industry has transformed from a farm-friendly utility purchase into a must-have, high performance craze. Nearly every ATV manufacturer is now offering a UTV model, and it seems like every other week there is a new, even better option available.
Almost identical to the ATV industry, the UTV market is a broad audience to cover, and the OEMs have just about done it. There are hot rods for the adrenaline junkies, or heavy-duty utility models for the ranch hand or farmer. There are a variety of 4-6 seat models available, narrow width models for the woods, track-equipped models for the snow and even snorkel installed UTVs for the mud.
The options are endless, and the prices range from the low $10, 000, like Honda’s all-new Pioneer utility or the Polaris RZR 570 sport, to the $20k price tag found on Can-Am’s Maverick MAX or the new Polaris RZR XP 1000. If you’re in the market for a UTV, or merely want to peruse the offerings, this is the Buyer’s Guide for you.
