UTV TEST: 2020 POLARIS GENERAL DELUXE

Putting fun in work and comfort in fun When Polaris came up with the concept of the General, it proved to be a whale of an idea—an idea that created or at least redefined the sport-utility segment of the UTV market. The General has all the payload, bed-load capacity and towing of all but the best utility models. The bed is not as large, but it can move a significant amount of stuff for work or for play. One of the drivers for our test has owned a Polaris 800 Sport, as well as a Polaris RZR XP 1000. He noted that the…

FIRST LOOK: POLARIS GENERAL SPORT

How many Generals does the Polaris army need? By the staff of Dirt Wheels Back in 2016 Polaris set the benchmark for what has become the sport-recreation segment of UTVs. Once there were just utility UTVs, but Polaris introduced the first RZR 800 and created the sport UTV market. Those early RZR models are not nearly as “sport” as the base-model General was in 2016. Change is usually good. The General was an immediate hit with suspension that was close to a RZR S, a 60-inch track width, a usable bed and a great…

TUESDAY TREAD: RACELINE WHEELS WITH ARISUN & GBC TIRES

A perfect setup for your truck and UTV By the staff of Dirt Wheels There are so many tire and wheel options on the market today, it’s daunting to choose the right setup for your UTV. Then you realize that your sole tow vehicle for your off-road toys needs new rubber shoes as well, and your options for truck wheels and tires more than doubles. Fortunately, there are companies that make wheels and tires for both trucks and UTVs. We picked out a set of Raceline rims and Arisun tires for our 2016 Polaris General, and a set of…

2016 Polaris General 1000 Full Test

We tested the $19,999 2016 Polaris General 1000 EPS Deluxe, which has a lot of great features. The base-model General starts at $15,999 and has many useful features to get the job done and comes standard with EPS. A 100-horsepower ProStar engine gives it the ability to drive fast and in a sporty manner through most any trails. If you take a RZR S 1000 and a Ranger XP 900, pour them into one vat and melt them together, eventually the Polaris General will ooze out of it. The only machine that might even come close to how good…
