2018 ATV BUYER’S GUIDE

Facts, photos & prices on over 100 models

— By the staff of Dirt Wheels —

We are always excited to drool over all of the new model-year ATVs that have slowly trickled in over the past few issues! Companies fight to outdo each other with styles, technological advancements and just plain cool stuff. Argo, a company known for amphibious vehicles, ventured into the quad market with their new Xplorer line of machines. Can-Am and Polaris have vast lineups of quads—from the basic 4×4 to extreme specialized editions.

Textron Off-Road purchased Arctic Cat and trimmed down the ATV line for 2018, though dealers have most of the extensive AC line of quads as 2017 models. We are hoping that a big release of new machines is going to flow from that joining of brands next year. For now, you can find the latest and greatest four-wheeled wonders here with machines designed for any style of riding you prefer. There are sport quads for sand dunes, mud runners for riders who like to get dirty, utility machines for job sites and two-up quads so you can bring your partner or buddy along with you for the fun!
