Polaris unveils new off-road vehicle

The new Polaris ACE is a first-of-its-kind vehicle with a completely new design that makes off-road riding approachable, easy and comfortable.

The Polaris ACE is a sit-in vehicle that is comfortable and easy to use. Automotive-type controls, including a steering wheel, as well as gas and brake pedals, make the ACE an ideal machine for novice or experienced riders. The Polaris ACE combines the comfort and secure feeling of a side-by-side vehicle with the smaller size and easy handling of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). Combining these 2 styles gives riders of all experience levels a completely new way to experience the outdoors.

“The Polaris ACE is truly revolutionary,” said David Longren, vice president of Polaris’ Off-Road Division. “In creating this new class of vehicle, we wanted a design that appeals to current off-road enthusiasts, and also makes off-road riding accessible for everyone to enjoy.”

Features of the Polaris ACE include:

* Automotive-style operation with steering wheel, gas/brake pedals and automatic transmission

* A unique ROPS cab frame only previously found on side-by-sides

* A secure, high-backed, adjustable bucket seat paired with an adjustable steering wheel to give the driver unmatched flexibility when it comes to comfort

* 3-point seat belt and side bolsters to keep the operator properly positioned in the center of the machine

* On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive (AWD) — This innovative system, found on all Polaris Off-Road Vehicles, eliminates the guesswork by automatically engaging when the rider needs more forward traction, then reverts back to 2-wheel drive automatically when the AWD is no longer needed.

* Choose from an all-new 45-hp. Pro-Star 570 electronic fuel injected (EFI) engine or a 32-hp. ProStar electronic fuel injected (EFI) engine.

* A 5.25-gallon/19.87-liter fuel tank provides excellent fuel range for long trail rides.

* Fully independent rear suspension (IRS) with 10.25 inches/26.04 cm of ground clearance and 9.5 inches/24.1 cm of rear travel allows the driver to clear rocks, logs and stumps with confidence.

* Ensured stopping power from the linked, 4-wheel disc brakes with braided stainless-steel brake lines that provide optimum response

* Powerful halogen lighting so the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down

* Plenty of storage space with an integrated 2.8-gallon/10.6-liter semi-dry, front storage compartment and a high-capacity Lock & Ride cargo box with rack extenders and rear tie-down rails.

Polaris offers more than 25 accessories for the ACE, including doors, winches, cabs and storage options to customize and personalize the machine. The new Polaris ACE 570 is available in 2 colors: White Lightning and Voodoo Blue. The Polaris ACE is available in White Lightning or Sage Green. Look for both models at authorized Polaris dealers starting at around $7,499.
