BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (DTN) -- Polaris Off Road introduced its 2025 full-size Ranger lineup on Wednesday with models the manufacturer is specifically targeting to farmers and ranchers with 4,500-pound (lb) winches, cargo beds with room for a half-ton of supplies and materials, and 2,500 lbs of towing capacity. An upgraded second-generation transmission reduces shifting effort by 50%.

At one end of its price range, Polaris is offering a price reduction on its base 2025 Ranger 1000. That utility side-by-side can be had for $13,999 (999cc engine, 61 horsepower). At the other side of the price range, Polaris is launching a couple of special-edition Rangers for 2025.

The Ranger Crew XP 1000 Waterfowl Edition returns to the hunt from an absence (999cc, 82 horsepower, starting at $25,499). It is designed for flooded and muddy terrain access. The Waterfowl Edition runs on 29-inch Pro Armor Mud XC tires and has arched A-arms for traction, ground clearance and stability. The special edition model also features a high-mount winch, high-mount intakes and is available in Waterfowl Hunt Camo.

Polaris also is rolling out an all-new Ranger Crew XP 1000 NorthStar Texas Edition (999cc, 82 horsepower, starting at $36,999). It features arched A-arms, 14 inches of ground clearance on 29-inch Pro Armor X-Terrain tires, factory-installed heating and air conditioning, 4,500-lb winch, Ride Command, Pro Shield Cab with full glass tip-out windshield and power front windows and Texas Edition badging in a Bronze Pearl Metallic coating.

Both special-edition Ranger Crews seat up to six passengers.

Here are other upgrades for 2025 full-size Rangers:

-- Ranger XP 1000 and XP 1000 NorthStar have a restyled front-end design, with a new bumper and grille for added durability.

-- Ranger XP 1000 and Ranger XP 1000 NorthStar models come standard with 29-inch tires for an extra inch of ground clearance.

-- Ranger XP 1000 NorthStar Ultimate models feature new JBL audio, factory installed.

-- Ranger 1000 Premium and XP 1000 feature factory-installed roof for added protection and a Polaris HD 4,500-lb winch with synthetic rope, autostop and wireless remote.

-- Cab nets are redesigned for easier use with a single-latch connection point.

-- Power steering has been upgraded for enhanced control and responsiveness, especially at low speeds.

-- The entire 2025 full-size Ranger lineup features on-demand all-wheel drive that automatically engages four-wheel drive when traction loss is detected for confidence in rough terrain.

-- Available on all 1000 Premium, XP 1000, XP 1000 NorthStar Edition models, Ranger offers LED headlights for enhanced brightness.

-- Standard on the XP 1000 NorthStar Ultimate is a 7-inch display powered by Ride Command that provides GPS mapping technology and features a backup camera. Available as an accessory add-on, 2025 Ranger full-size models are eligible for Ride Command+. Ride Command+ offers owners access to information like vehicle health and maintenance reminders, as well as protection features like vehicle locator and bump alerts that notify the owner if their vehicle has been bumped or moved from its last location.

The 2025 full-size Ranger lineup is shipping to dealers in April. For more information about 2025 model-year Rangers, visit https://ranger.polaris.com/….
