We brought you the news back in November that Polaris has released a band new side-by-side named the General, and set it squarely in the utility-recreation segment of the market.

Feedback from our friends in the industry has been positive, and the consensus is that the General is a go anywhere do anything side-by-side. It has 100 horsepower, RZR S-type suspension and has a tilt-bed. It also may give us a glimpse

Polaris has introduced yet another version of the Ranger Crew that is a little more... shall we say "accommodating". This Ranger Crew 900-6 is like any other Ranger Crew 900 but instead of room for five people there is room for six.

We just returned from a press event, where we were introduced to the astounding Polaris ACE, and had the opportunity to ride it for several hours. This is without a doubt a "revolutionary" machine. Is it an ATV or UTV? We.....are not sure. You could say it is an ATV with a bucket seat, steering wheel, and cab, or you could say it is a single seat UTV since it has a bed on the back. Whatever this new segment is going to be called, the machine itself is extremely well conceived, and an absolute BLAST to drive.....err....ride. The Polaris ACE hales from the Sportsman lineup. It is 48-inches wide, making it the perfect size to fit down any ATV trail. The ACE sports a brand new 32 horsepower dual-overhead cam engine

The Sportsman 500 has been a great ATV, and for model year 2014,
