Polaris Carves A New Path For Side-By-Sides & Outdoor Adventure With Polaris XPEDITION
A First-Of-Its-Kind Adventure Vehicle That Elevates Outdoor Pursuits
From Camping & Kayaking to Mountain Biking, Hiking & Beyond, Polaris XPEDITION is Designed to Go Deeper Into the Backcountry & Carry the Gear, Whatever the Adventure May Be
Adaptable, Comfortable & Capable, All-New Adventure Vehicle Offers 114-Horsepower Engine, FOX® Suspension, Available Heating & Air Conditioning, Five-Seat Configuration, 200+ Mile Fuel Range* & Polaris’ Widest Range of Accessories
Polaris Off Road, the leader in off-road vehicle innovation, is once again driving the industry forward with a first-of-its-kind side-by-side platform – the all-new Polaris XPEDITION. The 2024 Polaris XPEDITION XP and ADV create an entirely new category of “adventure side-by-sides,” combining the all-terrain capabilities of traditional side-by-sides with comfort and cargo capabilities typically associated with overlanding at the highest level.
Designed with a host of standard features and optional configurations to accommodate the greatest range of outdoor pursuits and enable consumers to keep chasing the wild, the Polaris XPEDITION is the most adaptable, comfortable and capable adventure machine on the market.
“In light of the incredible growth of the adventure segment, we decided to dramatically change the game with a vehicle that takes no cues from predecessors and leads the way for an entirely new side-by-side experience,” said Reid Wilson, Vice President, Polaris Off Road Recreation. “Our goal was to bridge the worlds of traditional side-by-sides and overlanding with a vehicle that allows the most passionate adventurers to go farther and deeper than ever and discover totally new destinations and experiences.”
With the Polaris XPEDITION lineup, Polaris has created a new category of “adventure side-by-sides” – vehicles designed to enable and elevate the broadest range of specific outdoor pastimes and pursuits. To date with recreational side-by-sides, the driving experience itself has been the predominant focus of design and development. Conversely, with utility side-by-sides, the emphasis has been on labor- and job-oriented benefits. With Polaris XPEDITION, Polaris’ design and development efforts were focused on elevating outdoor adventure, delivering a level of adaptability, comfort and capability to go farther into the wild, allowing new customers to explore the outdoors unlike ever before.
“We identified a definitive opportunity in the market around outdoor adventure and an increasing amount of consumers pursuing outdoor experiences, from the more traditional things like camping, hiking, hunting and fishing, to more sport-oriented, athletic pursuits like mountain biking or kayaking,” said Steve Menneto, President, Polaris Off Road. “We are driving our industry forward, once again, with innovation in the adventure side-by-side market to meet the needs of passionate adventurers.”
The Polaris XPEDITION performs without missing a step, allowing riders to conquer rugged terrain with thoughtfully designed standard features, combined with Polaris’ widest range of accessories and customization options to date. With adaptability at the forefront, the 2024 Polaris XPEDITION features integrated fold-flat rear seats, a pass-through cab and easy roof rack solutions to accommodate virtually any loadout. Delivering all-day comfort for any adventure, the Polaris XPEDITION is the first-ever sport side-by-side to offer a fully enclosed cab with full roof coverage, windows and optional heating and air conditioning providing riders protection from the elements.
The Polaris XPEDITION ADV model features a fully covered pass-through rear cargo box providing 36″ and 63″ on the 2-seat and 5-seat models, respectively, of flat storage length. The Polaris XPEDITION XP features a dumping cargo box that measures 30″ long to provide ample space for your spare tire and additional gear or accessories. The XP 5-seat model features a 60/40 split flip-up rear seats which allows seating to convert to storage space in seconds, while the ADV 5-seat model also has fold flat functionality for even more configuration and storage. Both models feature a segment-leading 48” width box with 16” high side walls so riders can carry equipment with ease.
ADAPTABLE FOR ANY ADVENTURE
The 2024 Polaris XPEDITION features a flat roof that enables over 100 all-new adventure focused accessories including, Rhino-Rack® roof rack and accessories such as the Polaris rooftop tent, kayak holder, fishing rod holder, MAXTRAX® traction boards and more. Additionally, flat floors and a large rear storage box allow for ample space to carry gear and keep it protected from the elements.
Whether hauling people or supplies, the five-seat configuration offers modular rear seats, providing even more storage space. In addition, a 2,000 lb. towing capacity allows riders to hitch and pull additional gear. Plus, the all-new Lock & Ride MAX cargo system adds an unmatched level of adaptability, with accessories that allow for virtually limitless configurations to best match the needs of the next adventure.
COMFORTABLE ALL DAY AND IN ANY SEASON
The Polaris XPEDITION is equipped with plush and sophisticated FOX® Podium QS3® Shocks with Position Sensitive Spiral technology keeping the ride smooth and enjoyable all day, even against rough terrain. An optional enclosed Pro Shield Cab System offers the most integrated, tight seal year-round to provide a superior experience every day, in every season. Additionally, the NorthStar trim features an exclusive HVAC system with adjustable control modes, allowing riders to set and direct the airflow to ensure the cab stays comfortable in hot or cold conditions. The NorthStar temperature-controlled vehicle is the industry’s only sport side-by-side to offer HVAC standard. Coupled with power windows and a tip-out front windshield, riders can still enjoy the great outdoors within the comfort and protection of the cab.
Focusing on rider comfort, the Polaris XPEDITION cab features a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, 6” of seat adjustability and front bucket seats for a tailored fit. To keep rider’s gear protected, the vehicle also has available locking doors, center console and a rear cargo box. Exploring the unknown confidently has never been easier with Polaris’ industry-leading seven-inch touchscreen display powered by RIDE COMMAND, giving riders access to the most sophisticated GPS and trail network available. The Group Ride feature allows riders to communicate, navigate and stay connected as a group while out on the trail. Even while appreciating nature, riders can enjoy the soundtrack to their outdoor adventure with a JBL® Trail Pro audio system.
CAPABLE BEYOND THE TRAILHEAD
For the ultimate adventurer looking to stay out longer and go deeper into the backcountry, the 2024 Polaris XPEDITION touts the industry’s largest fuel capacity of any factory side-by-side on the market with a 200+ miles range*. The 114-horspower, ProStar 1000 Gen 2 engine provides quick responsiveness and acceleration, while the on-demand all-wheel drive, Pro Armor 30” Crawler XP tires and a segment-leading 14” of ground clearance make easy work of the even the most technical terrain.
High-mounted air intakes, sealed electrical components and extreme approach and departure angles allow riders to tackle trail conditions with confidence, knowing the electrical system will stay dry and the engine, clutches and belt will still receive air flow for peak performance.
Built with a purposeful design, the Polaris XPEDITION comes with a Polaris HD 4,500 LB winch to help navigate the unknown and makes it easier than ever to add a Glacier Pro HD plow system.
