2022 UTV BUYER’S GUIDE

Amazingly, inspite of everything, it was a banner year for UTVs

2022 UTV BUYER’S GUIDE

After what many thought would be a definite downturn in the powersports market, thanks to a worldwide pandemic, 2020 and 2021 turned out to be a big surprise. UTV manufacturers had a banner year, and vehicles were hard to find all of a sudden.

We’ve covered more than 275 models in this year’s “Buyer’s Guide,” which is quite a few more than we did in last year’s buyer’s guide. Most likely there’s something in this buyer’s guide that will catch your attention.

Can-Am brought back the Commander name for a lineup of completely new vehicles. Can-Am also pushed the engine envelope, bringing a 200-horsepower powerplant to select models in the Maverick X3 line, as well as two more new engines—the HD7/700 ACE and HD9—replacing the HD5, HD8 and 800.

Polaris, dropped a handful of models, but comes to 2022 with exciting new ones. Of course, Dirt Wheels will stay tuned to the happenings as well and keep you posted.

We did not write about every Kawasaki Mule available, but we did include more than we did last year. We weren’t able to even include all the UTV manufacturers. There simply wasn’t enough room to do so. Those we unfortunately had to bypass this year are Bobcat (www.bobcat.com/utv), Tomcar (www.tomcar.com), Kioti (www.kioti.com), Roxor (ww.roxoroffroad.com ),Segway (www.powersports.segway.com) and Volcon (www.volcon.com).
