Polaris unveils XPEDITION models, new category of adventure UTVs

Polaris Off Road has unveiled a first-of-its-kind side-by-side platform – the all-new Polaris XPEDITION. The 2024 Polaris XPEDITION XP and ADV create an entirely new category of “adventure side-by-sides,” combining the all-terrain capabilities of traditional side-by-sides with comfort and cargo capabilities typically associated with overlanding at the highest level.

The XPEDITION is designed with a host of standard features and optional configurations to accommodate the greatest range of outdoor pursuits and enable consumers to keep chasing the wild.

“In light of the incredible growth of the adventure segment, we decided to dramatically change the game with a vehicle that takes no cues from predecessors and leads the way for an entirely new side-by-side experience,” says Reid Wilson, vice president, Polaris Off Road Recreation. “Our goal was to bridge the worlds of traditional side-by-sides and overlanding with a vehicle that allows the most passionate adventurers to go farther and deeper than ever and discover totally new destinations and experiences.”

The Polaris XPEDITION lineup has created a new category of “adventure side-by-sides” – vehicles designed to enable and elevate the broadest range of specific outdoor pastimes and pursuits. For recreational side-by-sides, the driving experience itself has been the predominant focus of design and development. Conversely, with utility side-by-sides, the emphasis has been on labor- and job-oriented benefits.
