Check out what Polaris has to say:

Polaris Introduces MY17 RZR XP Turbo EPS and RZR XP Turbo 4 EPS

The Most Powerful Factory Side-by-Sides Ever


Minneapolis, Sept. 16, 2016 – Today, Polaris RZR sets another new standard in razor-sharp performance with the introduction of the RZR XP Turbo EPS and RZR XP 4 Turbo EPS. Featuring a new ProStar® Turbo H.O. engine that unleashes 168 horsepower – the most power ever offered on a factory side-by-side – the vehicles offer 15 percent more power than last year’s models and 9 percent more than anything else on the market.


To match the horsepower upgrade – and significantly improve on 2016 models – the 2017 RZR XP Turbo models feature new, high-capacity cooling, and a stronger driveline to get that power to the ground. The high-capacity cooling includes a new, more powerful, variable-speed, brushless fan coupled with a new, 40-percent larger, high-flow front grill and a 20-percent larger engine radiator. The new cooling ensures the engine can breathe for maximum power delivery.


The RZR XP Turbo EPS and RZR XP 4 Turbo EPS boast the most premium suspension, with exclusive FOX Podium® Internal Bypass Shocks that deliver the plushest ride and best handling found on a side-by-side. The shocks generate progressive damping force that gives the vehicles a smooth ride with all the bottom-out resistance expected from ultra-performance off-road vehicles. Large-diameter shock bodies (3-in/7.6 cm rear, 2.5-in./6.4-cm front), adjustable remote reservoirs and increased fluid capacity provide dramatic improvements in heat dissipation, fade resistance and durability. By using five compression zones to provide progressive damping as the shock gently absorbs bumps and stiffens to prevent bottoming, the Internal Bypass Shocks feel like five shocks in one. Combine that with three zones of rebound damping to minimize pitching, plus harsh top out for an ultra-plush ride and better handling over a wider range of terrain at any speed.


For ultimate agility, the vehicles feature front and re-tuned rear stabilizer bars to virtually eliminate body roll for flatter cornering. For quicker steering, both vehicles have a new 1.5-turn steering rack, paired with standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS).  The RZR XP Turbo EPS and RZR XP 4 Turbo EPS’ industry-leading braking performance ensures precision stopping. The brakes feature large, triple-piston front calipers, dual-piston rear calipers, stainless-steel rotors and large 248-mm ventilated discs on all four corners, for powerful stopping performance.


The RZR XP Turbo EPS and RZR XP 4 Turbo EPS will be available in late 2016 in Titanium Matte Metallic and Cruiser Black. The two-seat model will retail for $24,999 U.S. and the four-seat for $27,499 U.S. Both models come with an extended two-year factory warranty when purchased before December 31, 2016.


For customers looking for high performance at value pricing, the 2016 RZR XP Turbo is now available for $19,999 U.S. and the 2016 RZR XP 4 Turbo EPS is $22,499 U.S.

  1. But they still have a mass recall/ do not ride order on all turbos do to fire and death issues.

  2. Don’t trust Polaris any more I ordered the new Can-Am X3

  3. Nice! It’s no wonder that Polaris outsells the competition easily! Way to go Polaris.

  4. Was waiting for the 2017 Polaris RZR Turbo but decided to pull the trigger on the Maverick X3 X DS Turbo. Looks like Polaris has dealt with their cooling and drive line issues on the new turbo but they screwed up big time and lost my confidence. Might consider them again in a couple years when I’m ready to buy again.

  5. Tired of waiting for Polaris to put out a machine that’s complete for $24000. Bought an x3. Bye bye Polaris

  6. i think that polaris should come out with a 3 cylinder engine turbo and non turbo and change the body style , i think if i change my rzr 1000 2015 for the new 2017 turbo will be a waste of money because next year they might change the car and engine.. polaris is dissapointing right now..

  7. Purchased 2 2016 xp turbo’s, have never had so many problems, with little to know solution from Polaris, I will never purchase another Polaris. I will buy a maverick next time hands down
