Features

Hardest Working Features

  • TURF MODE: The differential lock allows the driver to drive with both rear wheels when additional traction is needed. When additional traction is not needed, unlock the rear differential for easier, tighter turns that won’t tear up lawn or landscaping.
  • CLASS-LEADING TOWING AND PAYLOAD: A full 1,500 lbs. towing and standard 2” receiver, the RANGER 500 allows you to tackle the toughest jobs with confidence. Additionally, a 1,000 lbs. payload capacity is highlighted by a rear box with gas-assist dumping operation that can tote up to 500 lbs. of material.

Smoothing Riding Features

  • SMOOTH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: The Polaris Variable Transmission (PVT) delivers superior performance, ease of use and maximum drivability in all conditions. It requires no shifting or user input to deliver smooth power, just select high or low range and you are on your way to getting more done.
  • DESIGNED FOR EASY MAINTENANCE: RANGER is engineered to make maintenance quick and straightforward in your shop with easy to access service points for the oil filter, dipstick & drain plug. The Polaris Engineered™ PS-4 Extreme Duty and PS-4 Oil Change Kits are engineered to offer the right protection for your engine, the right amount of oil and the right filter to get the job done fast so you can get back to riding.
