MINNEAPOLIS, MN (December 7, 2021) – Nothing on the road compares. Each one is as unique as its driver. Polaris Slingshot, the show-stopping, adventure-seeking three-wheel vehicle, today announced its 2022 model year lineup. Featuring four trim levels and countless accessory options that enhance the drive, style and sound, the 2022 Slingshot lineup offers endless personalization options that empower owners to make their mark.
“There’s no wrong way to enjoy a Slingshot. Whether attracting attention with head-turning styling or escaping for an adventure, nothing on the road allows drivers to make their mark more than a Slingshot,” said Chris Sergeant, Polaris Slingshot Vice President. “We’re excited to bring SLR back to expand the Slingshot lineup and provide our owners even more personalization opportunities with thrilling new factory accessories.”
Fusing style and excitement with limitless personalization opportunities, the 2022 Slingshot lineup empower drivers to make their mark by defining their ride and choosing their own adventure. Headlining the 2022 model year news is the reintroduction of the SLR, the all-new Vented Sport Hood, a stylish new Excursion Top, and premium Brembo® Brakes.
New for 2022
Blending style with performance, the Slingshot SLR model sits between the show-stopping SL and top-of-the-line R model. Featuring the critically acclaimed ProStar four-cylinder engine with 203 horsepower and a sporty exterior two-tone paint scheme, the SLR delivers unrivaled style for the driver looking to turn heads without sacrificing premium amenities like Slingshot’s Sport Interior Package, and seven-inch display powered by RIDE COMMAND.
Vented Sport Hood
Slingshot’s all-new Vented Sport Hood adds aggressive, one-of-a-kind styling while improving aerodynamics and cockpit airflow via vented fenders and hood scoop. The Vented Sport Hood is made with an all-new durable fiberglass composite material - delivering a premium fit and finish. While stock on the 2022 R model, the Vented Sport Hood is available as an accessory upgrade in a solid color or in any stock graphic package for all 2020-2022 models.
For 2022, Slingshot has expanded its accessory top offerings with the introduction of the all-new Excursion Top. At $1,799.99, the new Excursion Top has an integrated toolless install and removal soft top with improved driver headroom and visibility. The Excursion Top provides a second top option for Slingshot owners and is exclusive to 2022 models.
Providing unrivaled stopping power, the four-piston Brembo® brakes will come standard on all 2022 R models and be available as an upgrade kit for all other models. Available in red or orange, the Brembo® front brake rotors are 14% larger than the standard front brakes rotors and feature fixed calipers.
Make Your Mark: Accessory Collections
Designed to inspire personalization, Slingshot offers four thoughtfully curated accessory collections that dramatically enhance the Slingshot experience for the driver’s personal preference and driving style. Owners looking to take their drive to the next level can do so with the Slingshot Drive Series, while adventure-seekers can pack for the long haul and ride in comfort with the Escape Series. The Slingshot Show Series and Design Series curate the ultimate head-turning accessories that allow drivers to design their own ride with accessories. Each accessory is sold individually – delivering endless possibilities for owners to mix and match to truly make their mark.
Elevate your driving experience. Slingshot’s Drive Series was curated to celebrate driving as a hobby, not a necessity. Improved aerodynamics and cockpit airflow from the Vented Sport Hood allow drivers to go the extra mile, while the new Excursion Top and Heated and Cooled Seats add premium comfort.
