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…

POJECT UTV: EPIC OVERLANDER

Ryan O’Hara’s Fuel General build By the staff of Dirt Wheels Life isn’t simply about the destination, but the roads that get you there. In our case, that’s the best dirt roads and trails we could ever imagine to find. Adventure riding and driving runs deeply through our souls, just like it does for Ryan O’Hara. Ryan eats, sleeps and breathes off-roading. He is so into our sport that he works for Fuel Off-Road and gets through terrain with their impressive wheels and tires. O’Hara’s dedication to adventure shows in his…

UTV PROJECT: ASSAULT’S ADVENTURE GENERAL 4

From a racer backwards By the staff of Dirt Wheels As cool and purposeful as race machinery looks, few people ever bother to drive a race build for recreation. The sad truth is, the restrictions required by race organizations (largely for crash safety) are anything but user-friendly. Assault originally created this General 4 as a racer for a NORRA Baja-based 1000-mile rally-type stage race. While it was hoped the car would make a successful weapon for that one race, the General idea (see what we did there) was to have…

POLARIS GENERAL UPGRADES

-- A PROJECT UTV BUILD YOU'LL LOVE --  By the staff of Dirt Wheels. The Polaris General brought a new flavor of fun to the UTV industry. Polaris decided to further bridge the gap between the sport performance class and the utility class with a more recreationally inclined machine that offers more comfort and capability than any machine previously built for either class. We picked up a Polaris General 1000 Deluxe model and decided to build it into a more-than-trail-capable machine. We envisioned a UTV that…

ASSAULT RACING’S EL GENERAL 4

-- PROJECT UTV -- Polaris’ General, particularly the General 4, has been very popular ever since its introduction. Even though they sell very well as sport/utility vehicles, the General 4 isn’t the first machine you think of as the basis for a wide-open-spaces race car. But that is the beauty of a company as multifaceted as Assault Racing in creating such a project. Naturally, they wouldn’t have picked a General if they didn’t think it could be a contender, but this machine is both a racer and a showcase for Assault…
