“For two decades, Polaris RANGER has been a trusted partner for hunters operating in remote locations,” said Chris Musso, President of Off-Road for Polaris. “We engineered the RANGER XP 1000 with the Back Country Package to excel in extreme conditions and rough terrain. Being recognized as ‘Best of the Best’ by Field & Stream is a testament to the countless hours put in by our engineering team to produce vehicles that allow hunters to go further and get more out of their hunt.”
