Polaris Ranger 500 Crew
The new RANGER 500 EFI, shares the same mid-size, two-seat chassis as the RANGER 400, with the addition of a 498cc EFI engine and full instrumentation, providing consumers two midsize, gas models to choose from for model year 2011.
The 500 EFI engine provides 32 horsepower giving the unit a top speed of 44 mph/70.8 kph and benefits of easy, choke-free starting and automatic altitude compensation due to its electronic fuel injection. Although its smaller stature allows it to fit in the back of a pickup truck, the midsize RANGER still boasts the hardest working, smoothest riding features of its full-size counterparts: On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive with VersaTrac, Independent Rear Suspension, heavy duty front end protection, high ground clearance and the longest suspension travel in the mid-size class.
The RANGER 500 EFI has a 500 lb./22.68 kg. Lock & Ride® cargo box with a gas-assist dumping operation, 1,250 lb./567 kg towing and 1,000 lb./453.6 kg. total payload making hauling hunting gear or working on the farm easier. Along with electronic fuel injection, the RANGER 500 EFI differs from the RANGER 400 due to its standard instrument cluster that includes an odometer, fuel level indicator, and speedometer.
With the addition to the RANGER 500 EFI to Polaris’ midsize Side-by-Side offering, Polaris also is entering the value-priced, multi-passenger vehicle segment with the new RANGER CREW 500. With all the same hardest working, smoothest riding features as the RANGER 500 EFI, the RANGER CREW 500 provides room for four people with plenty of room to spare. The vehicle features the best room and easy cab slide-through so four adults can get in and out easily.
