Polaris Defense was awarded a $2.4 million contract by the National Guard Bureau for its RANGER 800 CREW side-by-side, according to a company press release.
“The National Guard’s state-side mission to protect the homeland and respond to disasters fits Polaris vehicles extremely well,” Mark McCormick, managing director of Polaris Defense, said in the release. “Our all wheel drive, multi-passenger, off-road vehicles provide a cost-effective capability well-suited for the demands of the National Guard. This is a big win for Polaris and our defense business. As an American company, we are committed to providing quality vehicles to the U.S. Military and this contract is a great example of our commitment to that goal.”
Polaris Defense won the contract in a full and open competition conducted by the National Guard Bureau. The 2010 RANGER 800 CREW features an exclusive adjustable Dual A-Arm front suspension in addition to its independent rear suspension. The RANGER CREW also offers anti-kickback steering, high payload and towing, ease of attaching accessories and the capability to carry six people.
