Minneapolis, Aug. 19, 2014– Polaris Industries today announced the Sportsman ACE™ has been awarded “Best of the Best” by Field & Stream magazine. This is the second year in a row a Polaris vehicle has won the prestigious award with the RANGER XP 900 winning last year.
“This past January, Polaris defined an entirely new type of off-road vehicle with the introduction of the ACE,” said David Longren, vice president of the Off-Road Division for Polaris. “ACE was built for a wide variety of riders, including the hunting community, and it’s an honor to be recognized by the world’s leading outdoor magazine for a second year in a row.”
The revolutionary, new design of the Sportsman ACE combines the size and nimble handling of the Sportsman All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV), and the confidence and comfort of the RANGER and RZR side-by-sides, in a rider-centric design with a trail-capable and easily transportable 48 in/121.9 cm width. The Sportsman ACE debuted with a 32 horsepower ProStar™ Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI) engine and now is also available with a 45 horsepower ProStar 570 EFI engine. Seasoned riders appreciate the overall vehicle performance, handling and smooth riding suspension, while novice riders enjoy the secure riding position and the right amount of power to get them down the trail.
The Sportsman ACE, along with all the “Best of the Best” winners, can be seen in the September edition of Field & Stream or at fieldandstream.com/botbhunting2014.
