Polaris is bringing something big to the market in 2012. Next year, it will introduce the second trail-capable side-by-side in Ranger RZR family: the 2012 Polaris RZR 570.

In a release announcing the Polaris RZR 570, vice president and general manager of Polaris’ Off-Road Division, Matt Homan, said, “The launch of the RANGER RZR 800 introduced the industry to the first trail-capable Side-by-Side. With the success of the RANGER RZR 800, we saw the need for a single-cylinder model at a price point that will allow more customers to enter the trail-capable Side-by-Side segment.”

Price point indeed. The Polaris RZR 570 is slated to debut at $9,999 US MSRP (according to the official company site).

As for performance, the Polaris RZR 570 won’t disappoint. According to Polaris, the RZR 570 will showcase:

  • An all-new ProStar 570 single cylinder, DOHC, electronic fuel injected engine
  • A new, fully optimized transmission to add more power, less driveline noise, and less weight
  • A helical cut final drive with high torque capacity to maximize efficiency
  • Ultra smooth Independent Rear Suspension with 9.5 inches of travel in the rear
  • Dual A-Arms with 9 inches of suspension travel
  • 77-inch long wheelbase
  • Pre-load adjustable ZF Sachs Shocks
  • True All-Wheel Drive system
  • 300 lb. rear capacity

And these are just a few of the features that we know are coming with this trail-blazing side by side.
