Choosing the Royal Highland Show for the UK public launch, Polaris has introduced the Polaris General which it describes as ‘the most versatile side-by-side ever built’.
Starting with a 100 horsepower ProStar® 1000 engine delivering the most power and torque in its class, you can accelerate from 0-40 mph in 3.6 seconds, thanks to its power-to-weight ratio. When it’s time for work, the Polaris General offers you the biggest payload of 1100 lbs (498 kg) and a class-best 600 lb. (272 kg) dump box to get the job done. Factory-installed half doors with armrests offer extra protection from debris, and easy in-and-out, work-friendly cab access.
There are also dual bolstered bucket seats, adjustable for the driver, providing a secure feel and ample leg room, while the thin-film technology under the seat cover provides a dry ride in wet conditions. Space-optimized foot rests for both the driver and passenger also make for a secure ride. Ground clearance is best-in-class with 12 inches (30.48cm) unloaded and the dual A-arm front suspension has a class-best 12.25 inches (31.12cm) of suspension travel and 13.2 inches (33.53cm) rear travel.
To meet the variety of recreational needs and do battle with the workload, the General is available in two different models: General Velocity Blue and General Deluxe Orange Burst. Both models include automotive-style paint; Sport Low Profile Front Bumper and Polaris HD 4500 lb. (2041 kg) winch; and 14-inch (35.56 cm) Matte Black cast aluminum wheels paired with eight-ply, 27-inch (68.58 cm) GBC Dirt Commander Tyres providing better side traction, stiffer sidewalls, better tracking through corners and increased durability in tough work environments.
In addition, the Polaris General Deluxe Orange Burst has premium adjustable Fox Podium X 2.0 QS3 Shocks, a General Pro-Fit Lock & Ride Sport Roof, rear-view mirror and MTX® Premium sound system with Bluetooth connectivity. With more than 30 brand new Engineered Accessories and 90-plus common fit items available to customize or for utility use.
