UTV FIRST TEST: 2022 POLARIS RZR TRAIL ULTIMATE

Slim but capable and comfortable By the staff of Dirt Wheels Anybody could judge by the styling, size, track width and basic dimensions that the 2022 Polaris RZR Trail is a descendant of the early 50-inch RZR 800. It doesn’t actually share much in looks, performance, mechanical sophistication, and overall style and polish. We’d say that the Trail shares the spirit of that early machine credited with creating the sport UTV craze. There is no disputing that the current RZR Trail has close to double the power of the…

UTV TEST: 2022 KAWASAKI TERYX4 S LE

Legs to match its heart By the staff of Dirt Wheels Kawasaki has had a long and successful run with the Teryx4. It looks much as it did when it was introduced in 2012, but has had continuous updates—some quite far-reaching—since then. Kawasaki’s new Teryx4 S LE is considered all but a separate model. In a nutshell, it is a Teryx4 with a wider stance, more travel, larger front shocks and a slightly longer wheelbase. Yamaha was the first manufacturer to produce a UTV that was aimed at work and play, but Kawasaki had…
