2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS Review – One of the hidden gems in the release of Polaris Model Year 2018 is a RZR XP 1000 EPS. When most people focus on how much horsepower and suspension travel is in the turbo engine, I focused on the Gold Matte Metallic LE Signature Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS.
As an avid rock crawler, I always lobbied for a lower gear ratio in the low range and it seems to me that the Polaris is not just listening, but made a special edition just for me.
2018 Gold Signature Matte Metallic RZR XP 1000 is one of three Polaris RZR XP 1000 SE to 2018 and has been “adds the ability to dominate the trail and stone.” Well that sounds great, but what is different
2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS – Engine
New this year is the Prostar turbocharged engine that produces an amazing 168 hp, making the polars Polaris RZR XP 1000 most powerful side-by-side ever built. The increased power is a leap of 15 percent over last year’s turbocharged RZR, plus a 9 percent edge over anything on the market right now.
The new engine gets a few additional ancillaries to cope with added strength. High capacity cooling headline changes, including a more powerful variable speed fan, front grille higher-flow, and the radiator 20 percent larger. A driveline fat come along for the ride, helping to overcome the new RZR impressive output.
The new 2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS now packs a whopping 168hp power plant and having driven it, I can tell you that this is the most powerful RZR ever developed. Polaris improved engine to handle extra boost, they also enhanced grip to enable stronger involvement and better cooling. Now when jumping in and out of the throttle under load you can actually hear the blow-off valve Turbo boost disposal, it sounded like a squeak a little at first but then you begin to realize that the only machine that tells you to go harder! Accelerate hard, there is very little turbo lag in the new 2017 is something that many do not like in the 2016 model. Polaris also introduced a new CVT belt and stronger to go along with his clutch repair.
Back up they will mechanically proprietary Polaris PVT transmission, the continuously variable gearbox which should provide a driving experience that is simple for the owner. All-wheel drive is also standard. In fact, the only real option will force the body (XP Turbo EPS is a two-seater, while the Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS seats four) and colors (Titanium Matte Black Metallic or Cruiser).
You can not increase horsepower and does not work to improve handling. Now while many would still make the claim that Polaris improvements made still do not destroy the earth as saying the new X3 from Can-Am, recall, suspension RZR XP is pretty good and never has been a weak point. But Polaris still find a way to increase handling and performance of the new 2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000 by installing a shelf near the steering ratio and improve the tie-rod geometry. Now you can get a machine set to turn the wheel without having to wade too much and it makes handling the machine feel very precise and easier to drive at higher speeds and especially when navigating into tight terrain. You will also see a lot beefier rear radius rod which should make almost everyone happy to see!
