RANGER® 570 Reviews
2020 RANGER® 570 SAGE GREEN is rated out of 5 by 468.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DanB12 from Good choice for me. I purchased this in the fall for hunting season. The mid size 570 gets through tight spots with no problem and got me through the deep muddy areas near the swamp. My hunting spot is 1/2 mile from the road and I usually canoe in. Shoulder surgery ruled out paddling and a bum knee ruled out walking so this was plan B. Best move I ever made. If you are thinking about getting one of these you will not be sorry. I added the roof, windshield, and winch and sprung for the camo. Great looking machine and goes anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jawz52 from solid performer I purchased my 2018 Ranger 570 six months ago to use around some rural property. I primarily use it to fill wildlife feeders and cruise the fence lines looking for downed tree limbs, etc. The power and torque are great, especially when dragging large tree limbs. The power steering option would be nice as it is a bit stiff when trying to make a sharp turn at very slow speeds. While the nylon strap doors can be a bit cumbersome, they have prevented me from being whacked by brush and limbs on more than one occasion! The lock & ride windshield is absolutely awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by farmer bones from great little machine for smaller jobs we bought this ranger this summer and its a good little machine for smaller jobs . the only improvement that i think it needs is a better way to seal up the dash cause it leaks alot of air around the gear shift and when its cold out you can hardly tell the heater is working with all that air leaking in they need to seal up them rangers like the bigger rangers we have and they also need to make a cover or shield to protect the radiator houses on the drivers side cause if you get into some sagebrush it is possible for the hoses to be torn off the radiator . to fix that problem i made my own hose guard for my grandmothers 570 she has and no more problems with that issue otherwise no other complaints great little machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by smnowak2013 from Nice Machine I am happy with my Ranger now that I have out fitted the base model I purchased. I still think that they are a bit pricey for what you get with them. You either have to spend a lot to fit out a base model or, pay a lot more for a better equipped model. I believe that quality and reliability are of the utmost importance and I'm not very happy that the machine takes multiple tries to get it started when cold. It never starts on the first try when it's cold and, the stock battery seems very week for a machine that needs a lot of accessories in order to function as a true utility vehicle. Once it is running, the power, comfort, handling and other base features are great. Hopefully, the starting will get better as the engine breaks in. I added a second battery to run electrical accessories and added many other items to make it perform the way I want it to. All in all, I'm happy with it so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by abuzzon from THE RUBBER ON THE TRAILS!!! Its been a couple of months with my 570 ranger and cannot be more over joyed except for one problem .. The factory installs 4 ply tires that are less than adequate for a trail ..8 ply or higher should be standard as the first day i was out i got a puncture in the woods...Thank god the people I was riding with carry plugs!!! The rest of the machine was flawless but the TIRES need to be addressed as standard equipment to atleast have 8 ply or better ...

Rated 2 out of 5 by iujmcas from Transmission not the greatest The transmission integrated parking brake sucks. When parked on an incline, it's almost impossible to get it out of park. The vehicle needs a real parking brake. Also, when putting into reverse it ratchets and then slams into gear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mark47 from Lacking I bought this unit thinking polaris was the leader in utility side by sides. Needless to say ignorance is bliss. Not to brand bash, but once I really looked at the can am defender, I traded. Fit, finish, quality, ease of maintenance, cost, repair cost, storage, so many things...... I feel sorry for polaris if people start looking closely at can am in the utility market.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JCaesar6920 from Almost perfect. I am happy with my purchase. The buggy drives well. My only complaint would be the gear shifter. It doesn’t want to go into gear and the gears are “mushy”. I know numerous others who have this same issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Avalon Man from Great ride and love power steering! I have had my Ranger a few months and simply could not be without it. I am approaching 75 years old and this Ranger enables me to perform all of the farm chores I performed 20 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John S from Comfortable ride and quiet. I bought this unit for getting firewood, plowing and hunting. I now find myself finding excuses to just go for a ride. Glad I got the Ranger. We have several members at our camp that have other machines they all have their pluses but for my uses, I’m VERY glad I got the ranger. Because of its size and turning radius it’s the best in the woods. Because Of the locking diff, motor position, and clearance it’s as good as any in rough off road conditions. It can haul a good load of wood, pull a heavy trailer. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cfox from The 570 does it all. Bought this as an upgrade to the ATV I had for years and have been using to plow my driveway. The 570 has plenty of power for plowing and for trail riding as well. Also the unit was surprisingly comfortable to ride for long periods of time considering it's primarily a utility unit. Only complaint I have is that I wish I had just a bit more ground clearance on the trails but I can and will be remedying that it just of course costs more money for the list and some larger tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy D from Friggin Awesome for yard and trails!! This thing performed on trails in Mechanic Falls Maine that Mavericks had a hard time with....my buddy came with his Tracker but it struggled. I put a lift kit in my Ranger recently, but gotta tell ya this thing performs way better than my Honda!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jim569 from good multipurpose Good ride, Power steering is great. Turf mode is best feature. Pitiful Decals blow off at carwash. At 12k, this is embarrassingly cheap. Tailgate on bed is horribly weak. Load capacity is zero. Ever tried metal? "engineered plastic impact failure" is embarrassingly cheap on all your products. 2" more footroom on ranger, RZR would probably double your sales. Your got my business, but you could considerably improve the product as noted. Another 2" of footroom has to

Rated 3 out of 5 by RogV from As I see it While my Ranger isn't an every day nor week vehicle, it does work. BUT, not as expected. The shift lever does not move smoothly, more like forcing it. The take-off is not immediate but is slow to get going. For my use I needed an enclosed cab. The doors fit so poorly you have to slam and I mean hard. The driver's "cage" dimension is less than the passenger side so requires more effort yet. Sometimes I have to exit on the passenger side. As far as starting the engine, it's good. Once under way, it's good.The appearance is good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bear from Must do better! I spent a lot Time & Money to get it where it should of been from the factory! Like keeping mud out of battery area, and a a lot of other areas. Should have had a lot more though!! Chains! Yes some of us use these in the Winter! Had to put spacer on front and back for clearance. Once again NO thought! I really think that the people making these do NOT use them! O Yes the NOISE the very loud engine noise. This should have never happened from the factory! Just fix this for the consumer doesn't have to!

Rated 4 out of 5 by crabman from Great machine overall I purchased the Ranger 570 midsize a few months ago and have been very satisfied with the machine. We use it to work so far but I want to get it out on some trails soon. I'm very happy with this machine it has done everything I've asked and has surprised me with it's power and agility. My only complaints so far, the rear sway bar come apart on the passenger side due to loose bolts and I found no nut on the lower shock bolt on the same side. All of this fixed by calling the dealer quickly and without charge. I have found this machine to be what I expected and more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KellyOcala from Horrible experience, keeps breaking down I bought this a couple months ago as a vehicle for my farm. The vehicle is not used hard or very often and when I need it most it won’t start up or the power steering cuts off. Have brought it in multiple times to have issues fixed and it has never been fixed correctly. This vehicle is an absolute lemon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by explorewild! from Quality Wife Time in the Outdoors We purchased this in the fall of 2019, my wife never liked going in our f350 to explore our back yard, for her it was intimidating to be in a large truck on narrow logging roads. After this purchase I can finally share the experience and joy that comes with exploring our back country with my wife!........so for that reason alone this was priceless!! and such a reliable product, as you can see fear conquered!!! Thank you Polaris

Rated 3 out of 5 by Carla Hughes from Concerns over noise in rear end and dependability My ranger is 6 months old and will soon have 50 hours. I will be taking to dealer. Very concerned, have made dealer aware to address at 50 hour service, noise in rear end that comes and goes. Getting worse over time. Very concerned that it will break after warranty off. I keep my Polaris in garage and very gentle, as a woman driver. Very disappointed about the dependability issue given the high cost. I have read reviews where others had same issue and had to pay for their own repairs after warranty expired. I've had a Honda 4 wheeler for 18 years and no problems. I would like an extended guarantee on the transmission as it is internal issues. (Have never even pulled anything? no large tires, no bog holes, stop totally when changing gears). No abuse. Dealer is been very nice and I have much respect for Jason at dealership. I trust they will help me, but please give an extension on this problem until we know it is totally resolved and trustworthy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Don B from Has some problems I am not happy with a lot of features with this machine. Very hard to clean mud off, took 2 1/2 hr. to wash it after going through mud. Mud gets in everywhere, including all the spaces on the underneath of the box. Hard on fuel. A, lot of heat comes up behind the seats, so much we had to stuff our coats in there to make it bearable. Think it has some design flaws.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anthony4Christ from Transition from Club Car to SxS I am very pleased with my decision to go from a lifted club car golf cart to this midsize SxS with power steering. The combination of gas reliability compared to batteries, power of engine (~50mph top end speed), 4x4, suspension/ride comfort, size of machine that maneuvers in wooded trails, and opportunities for add ons such as lights/wench/lift kit/disc/bush hog make this an ideal work machine for me. I hunt near a bottomland hardwood swamp that floods so I feel better about this machine getting me, my kids, and our harvest back to the truck each time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kokid941 from 162 miles and check engine light is on No hard riding, just around the property, crossed a couple small creeks no higher than mid tire, light mud from rain on trails. Just got a check engine light, speedometer stopped working and engine is hesitating after being out in the rain. This is s 2019 Ranger 570 midsize and I’m very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EMP3 from Get what you pay for! I bought the 570 Ranger efi several months back. I have a ranch with hills and it handles nicely and what I expected out of it. I'm cautious with driving horizontally on hill sides as the 570 is top heavy especially with a passenger. Definitely learning the do's and don'ts as the more I use it. Definitely recommend a winch to go with it as it would have helped me the couple of times I got stuck! Great bed area and tilt. The negative side is it's turn radius but that was kind of expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Randyvan from Good machine I really like my new 570, it run great , shift great, quite and air flow into the cab is very little with the back and front windows on. I have not notice any dust flying back into the cab with or without windows in place. My only complaint is not having back fenders or something in place to keep the mud from splashing all up underneath the seat area. I had to make some mud guards to help keep it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tony 1970 from Tony feedback Pretty happy overall. I have a 2016 as well. Better grip on the floor board would be nice. I added skid prevention material. Shifter is stiff. Be nice if it was smoother. All other features are fine. Hard to rate reliability below as I only have 100 miles on it. I general battery life on all of my Polaris's since 2009 has been bad. Something needs done to better isolate them to make them last longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BisonPA from Nice but very noisy I like most everything with the exception of a few things. I have trouble getting it to shift to reverse. When you finally get it to shift there is a jerk and noticeable noise as it shifts in gear. I rarely get a smooth shift in reverse. The second thing, it is very noisy. I used a decibel meter while riding and got a reading in the low 80's. The level where hearing protection is recommended is 85. After a long ride it is pretty annoying. I really like the way it looks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris27 from Good for yard work. I bought this a few months ago. Is great for yard work. Sucks for trails. No ground clearance and not much suspension travel. Bottomed out on frame and control arms a lot. It is easy to get in and out of. I think this is a very purpose based perchase. If you are buying for work and play i would buy a different machine. If you are buying it for yard work around the house or farm i think it serves that purpose at an entry level price point. I would like to see more stereo options from polaris for this machine. There is clearly a place under the dash to mount speaker pods yet polaris doesn't offer any.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wwr244 from Love it..... I bought this machine in June and it’s been a pleasure. My only gripe is the cost of accessories. I can buy a comparable size TV for the same price I paid for the roof. This is exorbitant and not fair to those who buy your product

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hank from Tough machine I purchased the 2018 Ranger 570 Midsize mainly to help blaze a UTV/golf cart road on my four acre wooded New Hampshire hillside property where a wheelbarrow and a pickup just can't go. The ground is uneven and steep at times with soft ground and large rock. The power of the 570 makes hauling a bed full of firewood up the hill effortless and the front and rear independent suspension makes the uneven ground just plain fun to traverse. I never thought rock crawling was so much fun. This is a great vehicle for land management and recreation. My only regret is not getting one of these a long time ago. .
