The new Polaris Xpedition side-by-side platform from Polaris Off-Road has been revealed, complete with an array of technologies and design features not normally associated with the adventure side-by-side vehicle sector.
To suit a wide range of use cases, the 2024 Xpedition XP and ADV feature integrated fold-flat rear seats, a pass-through cab and roof rack solutions for convenient cargo stowage. The side-by-side is stated by Polaris to be the first of its kind to deliver a fully enclosed cab with full roof coverage, windows and an optional heating and air conditioning system.
The ADV features a fully covered pass-through rear cargo box, while the Xpedition XP boasts a dumping cargo box to stow spare tires and other accessories. The five-seat version of the XP is fitted with 60/40 flip-up rear seats.
The Xpedition can also be optioned with an enclosed Pro Shield Cab System to provide a weather tight seal and the NorthStar trim features an exclusive HVAC system with adjustable control modes. Power windows and a tip-out front windshield also feature.
For additional driver comfort, the side-by-side cab features a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, 6in of seat adjustability and front bucket seats. A 7in touchscreen display – powered by Ride Command – provides GPS and trail networks.
“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,” said 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.”
