Best Selling Automatic 4x4 ATVs. Wheter you work, hunt or trail ride, this is the ATV that made the Sportsman® name famous. With EFI, this lengend is built for the perfect balance of work and play.

  • Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) 500 ENGINE: Automatically adjusts to altitude and air temperature for faster starts, crisper throttle responses and better fuel economy.
  • All New Active Descent Control (ADC): Work together with Sportsman's Engine Braking System (EBS) to give you optimum control when moving down hills and steep inclines.
  • Independent Rear Suspension (IRS): The heart of what makes a Sportsman a Sportsman. The rock-solid, proven design minimizes body roll and keeps the ride smooth.
  • On-Demand AWD: The Polaris exclusive AWD automatically engages all wheels when you need more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when you do not.
  • Lock & Ride: Exclusive, hassle-free system lets you change out accessories in seconds with no wrenches or additional tools
  • 3-Star PXT Tires: Exclusive 3.4 in. lug tire-cleaning pattern maximizes traction in mud and loose terrain.
  • Front Storage: The largest front storage of any ATV. Large capacity lets you carry loads of gear and still have access to it even with items tied down to the deck.
  • Available Painted Finish: Metallic automotive-style finish is 900% tougher and 9 times more scratch-reisistant than standard plastic is and, if damaged, can be easily repaired.
