Most side-by-sides are purchased by people adrenaline junkies craving a thrill with each ride. What many fail to acknowledge is that some models are marketed as capable workhorses that can cover terrain that regular vehicles cannot. To show you what they mean, here is the 2024 Ranger XD 1500 – a compact yet tough machine equipped to handle a variety of tasks.

Polaris even proudly states that the UTVs under this series are the “hardest working” and “smoothest riding” in their lineup. The “XD” stands for “Extreme Duty” but despite what it says, the company promises superior comfort. Nobody likes to feel like they’re in a spin cycle whenever out for a drive, which is why suspension systems matter.

A 12” travel sounds more than enough to mitigate the effects of dynamic shifts in surfaces during your travels. To showcase the very best of the catalog, Polaris brings us the 2024 Ranger XD 1500 Northstar Edition. Buyers do love options, hence, there are two trim selections and seating options. As always let’s talk about their top-of-the-line offering – the Ultimate.
