Hardest Working Features:
Reliable ProStar® Power

The all-new 500 cc engine is the third generation of strong and efficient ProStar® engines that have powered hundreds of thousands of Polaris vehicles. This experience and engineering results in an optimal balance of low end torque and high horsepower to provide smooth, reliable power to help you get the job done.

Class-leading Towing and Payload

With full 1,500 lbs. towing and standard 2” receiver, the RANGER 500 allows you to tackle the toughest jobs with confidence. Additionally, a 1,000 lbs. payload capacity is highlighted by a rear box with gas-assist dumping operation that can tote up to 500 lbs. of material to get the job done in fewer trips.

On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive

With the Polaris true AWD advantage, all four wheels engage automatically when your vehicle needs more forward traction and reverts back to 2WD when it doesn’t. When in 2WD, NEW for this year the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns that won’t tear up your lawn.

Class-Leading Engine Performance

RANGER 500 produces class leading 32 HP to make quick work of everyday tasks. Electronic Fuel Injection allows for dependable cold-weather starting plus superior fuel economy.
