Polaris gas-powered utility trucks haul up to one-ton payload, tow 2,500 lb.

Jan. 21, 2020
In 2018, Polaris added diesel-powered PRO XD utility task vehicles (UTVs) with 1,930-lb. payload and 2,500 max towing capacity. A little more than a year later, the company released comparable gas models that don't sacrifice power.

While some jobs on the worksite require a heavy-duty, diesel-powered pickup, when you just need to haul a load of materials or debris a few hundred yards, a scaled-down utility vehicle can be the right ride to slip around pockets of people, equipment and infrastructure. At the end of 2018, Polaris, the Minneapolis-based snowmobile and ATV manufacturer, added two- and four-seat diesel-powered PRO XD utility task vehicles (UTVs) with 1,930-lb. payload and 2,500 max towing capacity. A little more than a year later, Polaris released comparable gas-powered models that add fuel flexibility without sacrificing power.

The two-seat 2000G AWD has a payload of up to 1,900 lb. and the four-seat 4000G AWD carries up to 2,075 lb. Both can tow 2,500 lb. The gas-powered ProStar 1000 cc engines generate 49.5 HP and are suited to work off and on-road, for rental, construction or government applications.

“At Polaris Commercial, we are passionate about delivering state-of-the-art capabilities to all of our hard-working customers. With the launch of our Pro XD diesel work vehicles last year, we delivered huge value to our rental, construction, commercial and government sectors,” said Sean Cheatham, vice president of product development, strategy, and marketing at Polaris Commercial. “Today, with the addition of gas-powered models, customers who prefer gas can now take full advantage of the ultra-productive Pro XD line.”

The PRO XDs have a top speed of 40 mph, or can be governed to 15 mph for safety purposes. The diesel UTVs have a top speed of 26 mph. The diesel PRO XDs have 200-hour maintenance intervals, while the 2000G and 4000G should be maintained every 100 hours.

While small like Shetland ponies, these robust workhorses have heavy-duty components such as puncture-resistant seats and tires, commercial-grade wear components and heavy-duty suspension. Accessories include snowplows and 6,000-lb. winch.
