Yet again, Polaris is launching a ground breaking side by side platform that may possibly change the industry. The new platform will go by the name XPEDITION XP and XPEDITION ADV. both models will be available in a 2-door, 2 seat or a 4-door, 5 seat configuration. Trim levels will include Premium, Ultimate and the NorthStar package with power windows, insulated cab, heat and A/C.

 The XPEDITION gets its power using the 1000cc, Gen 2, Pro Star engine mated to a CVT. That power gets to the ground using shaft drive, an independent A-arm suspension system similar to the General with 14 inches of wheel travel up front and 15 out back. However Polaris tells us this is an all new chassis different than the General or Ranger. What sets it apart is the frame, cockpit, body and roof.


From the outside, the ADV model has a roof that completely shades the cargo area. On the Northstar HVAC model the area is enclosed as well. All four door, ADV models feature a lay flat 60/40 seating area create a pass through cargo area unique to any other side by side. So keeping with that Adventure or Overlanding theme, conceivably, you could lay the seats flat and make a sleeping area that shares part of the cockpit and all of the cargo area. Furthermore, Polaris has over 100 accessories ready for this machine including a roof top tent. To make the tent practical to haul, Polaris constructed an all new ROPS (roll over protection system) that has a static load rating of 500 pounds and 150 pounds while the vehicle is in motion. Speaking of motion, Polaris claims, you will be able to travel 200-miles between fill ups thanks to a new 12.5 gallon fuel tank.

   Other features to note, is the ADV model does not have a dumping bed but the XP models do. The Northstar trims will have glass, power windows, heat and air conditioning, and locking doors as well. No, these machines are not street legal.


The new Polaris XPEDITION not only looks very reminiscent of the Ford Bronco, it’s priced about the same as some of Ford’s Base model units starting at $28,999. On the positive side, the much lighter XPEDITION is also narrower than the Bronco, has more ground clearance with more suspension travel and is way more nimble on any trail. The 2024 Polaris XPEDITION XP and ADV are both available in two and five-seat configurations in three trims: Premium, Ultimate and NorthStar. The Ultimate and NorthStar trims will begin shipping to dealers in Summer of 2023, while the Premium trim will be made available in 2024.
