Polaris Industries announced the launch of their all-new 2014 Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 EPS. It's slated to be available in dealerships starting in January. Joining Arctic Cat and Can-Am with this new big bore ATV, Polaris claims that their 2014 Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 goes above and beyond with the highest horsepower, fastest acceleration, highest ground clearance and longest suspension travel of any ATV. They weren't kidding. Check out this beast of an ATV!
Performance, Style and Riding Comfort
The 2014 Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 comes with a powerful 4-stroke 1000 (952cc) engine that represents the next generation of power for the Polaris Scrambler. Based on the tried and tested 850 twin of earlier Scrambler models, the fuel injection big bore features in-your-face power while also boasting a 270-degree offset crankshaft with dual balance shafts to ensure your ride is incredibly smooth and vibration free.
Owners will appreciate the true on-demand AWD of this big bore 4x4 which automatically engages all four wheels if the rear two begin to slip. Power will revert back to 2WD when AWD is no longer needed. But if that isn't enough, wait until you experience the impressive Fox Podium X 2.0 adjustable shocks and the A-arm suspension featuring a whopping 9" of travel in front and 10.25" in the rear. The 2014 Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 has a class-leading 11.5" of ground clearance. You can tackle some serious mud holes, rocks and whoops with this baby!
The high-mounted dual exhaust pipes and throaty growl of the 2014 Polaris Scrambler XP 1000 will put a smile on anyone's face. When out on the trails with friends you know you'll be admired even from behind.
With a payload capacity of 290 lbs., a hitch tow rating of 1500 lbs. and unbraked towing capacity of 1914 lbs there isn't much you can't accomplish with this trendy workhorse. The entire package (when not covered in mud) weighs in at 767 lbs.
As the name implies, the 2014 Scrambler XP 1000 comes equipped with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) offering the smoothest, most responsive steering available. Every machines also includes Variable Assists for easier steering at the lower speeds. You'll be able to drive all day with less fatigue.
MSRP: $13,299 – Available in January
