2022 Polaris RZR Turbo R Ultimate First Look Gallery

A closer look at Polaris’ brilliant Turbo R.

The 2022 Polaris RZR Turbo R.Zach Bowman

The 2022 Polaris RZR Turbo R rides on the same platform as Polaris’ new halo rig—the fierce, 225 hp Pro R. With 181 hp from Polaris’ 1,000cc parallel twin, the Turbo isn’t as wild as its stablemate, but that doesn’t mean it’s less fun. It still has more horsepower than a Honda Civic, a clever 4WD system, and a suspension setup that will let it haul over hardpack, or crawl through mud or over rocks. We can’t wait to fully put it through its paces.

The Turbo R lives somewhat in the shadow of the 2022 Polaris RZR Pro R, which is a shame—it’s an excellent rig in its own right.Zach Bowman
Similar to the outgoing RZR Pro XP at first glance, the Turbo R has much bigger suspension components, a stronger cage, and an aluminum roof. Its similarities to RZRs of old stop just past the nameplate.Zach Bowman
The soft-touch steering wheel is lovely, and carries the controls for the brilliant Dynamix DV electronic suspension.Zach Bowman
In Ultimate trim, the 2022 Polaris RZR Turbo R comes with the amazing Ride Command navigation system, which we unabashedly love.Zach Bowman
The Turbo R rolls on 32-inch Maxxis Rampage Furys wrapped around 15-inch rims right out of the box. The five-lug bolt pattern is a Turbo R and Pro R–only configuration.Zach Bowman
Polaris Dynamix DV electronic suspension is fantastic, allowing you to switch ride modes on the fly with the push of a steering wheel–mounted button. A screen in the Ride Command system lets you monitor suspension action on all four corners in real time.Zach Bowman
The headlights may scream Polaris RZR Pro XP, but this thing is far from any of its predecessors.Zach Bowman
