What Polaris Doesn’t Want You to Know About the Ranger

Will a ten year-old Ranger hold up to a brand-new unit?

The Polaris Ranger has been around since the dawn of time, and even after years of being abused by tough farm work, the little machines refuse to die. That’s why you can buy one and still have it moseying around your property ten years later. And contrary to popular belief, it’s not always a bad idea to buy a used Ranger.

So we got curious. How does a 10 year-old Ranger hold up to a brand new one? Would you be better off buying off the lot, getting a warranty and not have to worry about repairs, or buying a used Ranger to save some money but miss out on newer luxuries?

To find out, we compared a 2014 Polaris Ranger XP 900 to a 2024 Ranger XP 1000. Check out the video to see how it went.
