Polaris Unveils Updated 2021 RZR Trail and Trail S

The side-by-side that started it all gets freshened up for ’21.

The 2021 Polaris RZR Trail S.Polaris

Meet the 2021 Polaris RZR Trail and Trail S. Updated with new bodywork and an improved interior, the Trail is designed for tight, technical wheeling thanks to excellent suspension travel and the two-seat model’s 79-inch wheelbase.

The narrower 50-inch RZR Trail is only available with a 75 hp, 900cc twin-cylinder engine. There's 11 inches of ground clearance thanks in part to the standard 26-inch tires, and Polaris says the tiny RZR offers up to 10 inches of suspension travel. The engine and gearbox are carryovers from the previous generation, but the new, more aggressive bodywork now includes full doors to keep mud and debris out of the cabin, and the updated roll cage delivers more headroom than before. The RZR Trail now comes standard with an adjustable steering wheel, which should make long days on the trail a little more comfortable. The 2021 RZR Trail is available in three trims: Sport, Premium, and Ultimate. That last one comes with the company's brilliant Ride Command infotainment system, as well as a Rockford Fosgate stereo.

Want more power? Move up to the 60-inch Trail S. The wider RZR Trail S Sport comes with the same 75 hp twin as the Trail, but jump up a trim level to the RZR Trail S 1000 Premium and you get the company’s 1,000cc, 100 hp twin. The Trail S 1000 Ultimate gets the same grunt.

In general, Premium models will net you power steering with a slightly quicker 2.0-turns-to-lock steering rack. Sport models get a slower 2.5-turns-to-lock piece. Going Premium also grabs you LED lights and Walker Evans Needle shocks over the Sport’s Fox 2.0 Podium bits. Prices start at $13,999 for the 2021 RZR Trail Sport and $15,299 for the RZR Trail S Sport. The priciest of the lot is the Trail S 1000 Ultimate at $18,999. Look for these models to start appearing on showrooms soon.
