FIRST LOOK: 2020 POLARIS PRO XP ORANGE MADNESS LE

The ultimate in trail performance? By the staff of Dirt Wheels

Polaris’s Pro XP line is based on a beefy chassis and a longer wheelbase than the traditional RZR. It has 181 horsepower, and you can feel the difference between it and the 168-horsepower models.

Polaris has introduced a new limited-edition model to its 2020 RZR Pro XP model lineup. The new machine comes with an updated Orange Madness color scheme that consumers have been waiting for. The LE model is equipped for “ultimate trail performance” that Polaris claims can only be found in the Pro XP line, including a 64-inch width and 22 inches of usable travel for outright comfort. Coupled with its performance, the Pro XP Orange Madness LE also features industry-leading Ride Command technology and Rockford Fosgate premium audio.

Polaris has spent a lot of time on the Pro XP line making sure that ground clearance is optimized. It has a new look but also has a distinctly Polaris identity.

 

Both the two-seat and four-seat Orange Madness LE have a Rockford Fosgate stereo system, a 7-inch Ride Command touchscreen, GPS, camera control, Bluetooth and more.

In addition to the best-in-trail-class features of the Pro XP Premium, the Pro XP Orange Madness LE also features Ride Command technology integrated into a 7-inch glove-touch display with built-in GPS navigation, Group Ride, Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, pre-downloaded maps available offline and more. The Rockford Fosgate premium audio system pairs with the Ride Command display seamlessly to deliver crisp, full sound to provide the soundtrack for your ride.

All of the Pro XP 4 models, including the LE, have rear seats that fold flat to allow carrying gear with you. We often choose to drive a four-seat machine but rarely have back passengers.

The Pro XP Orange Madness LE delivers a new level of performance, packing 181 horsepower tuned for response in the 20–50-mph range. The new Pro XP models already boast a completely redesigned cockpit that elevates the driver’s experience and a longer 96-inch wheelbase (compared to earlier RZR models) that turns tighter than the incredibly agile RZR XP Turbo. The Pro XP Orange Madness LE also comes standard with a telescoping steering wheel, signature LED accent and headlights, retractable six-point harness, Walker Evans 2.5 needle shocks and Isolated Xtreme Performance True On-Demand AWD/2WD. The Pro XP 4 Orange Madness LE features the industry’s first second-row, fold-flat rear storage—just unclip, flip and fold flat to take what you need for a day on the trails.

(Above) Polaris boosted power to 181 ponies, and you feel that. The interior is comfortable, and the tall doors and cowl make you feel secure, but vision forward is limited compared to a RZR.
For the Polaris Pro XP Orange Madness LE models the colors are bright and striking. They have Walker Evans shocks, as well as all the electronic trickery that Polaris offers.

The RZR Pro XP Orange Madness LE comes in an eye-catching custom orange and yellow paint scheme that is complemented by a sleek graphics package. Pricing starts at $26,699 for the Pro XP Orange Madness LE (two-seater) and $30,599 for the Pro XP 4 Orange Madness LE (four-seater), which will be available in dealerships in June.

For now, the Pro XP line remains 64 inches wide. Despite that, the car feels planted and controllable in the dunes and on trails. The rear seat is tight for passengers over 6 feet tall.
