The Polaris Ranger 570 HD side-by-side utility vehicle will be released on the Australian market in 2015.

POLARIS is set to make a new addition to the Australian side-by-side market with the impending release of its redesigned Ranger 570 HD model.

The release in 2015 of the Ranger 570 HD will continue the momentum of Polaris which has grown its year-to-date sales by 34 per cent over the same period in 2013, including sales growth of 78.5pc in the side-by-side segment.

The Ranger 570 HD features an engine braking system with 4-Wheel Descent Control (4WDC) to provide greater control and traction when descending slopes.

The 4WDC system was included on the Polaris UTE which was released early this year.

The 2015 Ranger 570 HD will also come with other heavy duty features such as a HD sway bar, upgraded rear driveshaft and grease fittings.

Further upgrades for 2015 over the previous Ranger 570 model include standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS), 10pc more engine power, enhanced styling, increased Lock and Ride accessory compatibility, increased suspension travel and greater cab comfort, including standard tilt steering.

Polaris is also offering seat belt interlock which operates by limiting the top speed of the vehicle to 24 kilometres/hour when the seatbelt is not engaged.

There is also a Speed Key accessory which is a separate key to the vehicle which limits the top speed to 40km/hr.

The Ranger 570 is powered by a 567cc, 33kW, fuel-injected ProStar engine and On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive including Turf Mode, Macpherson strut front and independent rear suspension with 22.9cm and 25.4cm travel respectively, and 25.4cm ground clearance.

It has a 680-kilogram towing capacity, 227kg rear dump box capacity and 34.1-litre fuel capacity.

The Ranger 570 HD will be arriving in Australia in early December and will be available in Sunset Red.

my Polaris 570 ranger purchased 10-08-2014 came with a 14ah battery which is not powerful enough to start the engine without several revolutions thus discharging the battery. I feel I and future 570 rangers buyers should get the 30ah battery with original purchase.
