Polaris is adding some umph to the Ranger Crew for 2019. The new Crew XP1000 features the same 82-horsepower 2-cylinder engine from the 2019 Ranger XP1000 but can haul around nearly twice as many people. With 6 person capacity, the Ranger Crew XP1000 can move people, equipment, or just about anything. We previously reviewed a long term Ranger XP900 and loved every minute. How can you go wrong with better styling, a new interior, and MORE power? You can't

Polaris® Introduces Completely Reinvented 2019 RANGER CREW® XP 1000

 

Fueled by More than 100 Owner-Inspired Improvements, the All-New RANGER CREW XP 1000 Sets the New Standard for Six-Passenger Utility Side-by-Sides

More Rugged. More Refined. More RANGER.™

More Rugged: 82 Horsepower, Industry-Leading 13 Inches of Ground Clearance and 1,750 Pounds of Payload Capacity
More Refined: All-New Interior with Unmatched In-Cab Hauling and Comfort for Six
More RANGER: More than 100 Owner-Inspired Improvements, Standard One-Year Warranty and 200-Plus Accessory Options

 

Minneapolis (April 10, 2018) – Polaris RANGER®, the industry’s No.1-selling utility side-by-side vehicle, today introduced the completely reinvented 2019 RANGER CREW® XP 1000, setting the new standard for six-passenger utility. It brings added passenger and payload capacity to the world’s HARDEST WORKING. SMOOTHEST RIDING.® side-by-side. Fueled by more than 100 owner-inspired improvements, including best-in-class power, towing, ground clearance and payload capacity, the all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 redefines what a six-person utility machine can do.

“After 20 years of building more than one-million RANGER vehicles, we know what it takes to deliver industry-leading innovation. The all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 embodies our ongoing commitment to improving the owner experience and surpassing their lifestyle needs,” said Chris Musso, president of Off-Road Vehicles, Polaris. “This machine delivers an unparalleled balance of capability and comfort, offering the ultimate solution for any job that requires more people and more gear.”

Best-in-Class by Any Measure
The 2019 RANGER CREW XP 1000 is the undisputed king of six-seat utility side-by-sides. It has been engineered to outwork the competition, starting with the ProStar® 1000 power plant, which generates a class-best 82 horsepower. All that power is turned into productivity with a massive 2,500 pounds of towing capacity – 500 pounds more than the closest competitor. When the job calls for a full crew, the machine effortlessly hauls up to six people and their gear with an industry-leading payload capacity of 1,750-pounds.

Much more than just a workhorse, the all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 builds on the legendary ride and handling RANGER is known for. It boasts up-to 13 inches of class-leading ground clearance and more durable, 27-inch, 6-ply tires to conquer the toughest terrain. With an unrivaled 11 inches of suspension travel courtesy of RANGER CREW-specific shocks, the ride stays ultra-smooth even when the land is not. Thanks to a 10-percent tighter turning radius and standard EPS, drivers can navigate tight confines with precise control.

Unmatched In-Cab Refinement
Drivers and passengers alike will appreciate the entirely reimagined in-cab experience of the RANGER CREW XP 1000. The cut-and-sew seats are thicker and more durable to provide all-day comfort, while entering and exiting the vehicle is made easier with an additional five inches of clearance for both front and rear passengers. A new digital/analogue gauge delivers information to the driver at a glance.

The vehicle’s innovative interior design allows riders to haul more gear with new flip-up front and rear passenger seats, plus a new under-seat pass-through for hauling items that require more space. It boasts an expansive 19 gallons of in-cab storage, including 8 cup holders and a huge double glove box.

Built for the Long-Haul
The all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 is also proven to be tougher, stronger, and more durable. It features dozens of durability improvements, including a more rigid, one-piece chassis, a completely redesigned heavy-duty PVT clutch system, a full-body skid plate, and sealed suspension bushings – all backed by a standard one-year factory warranty.

Off-Road Climate Control
When the weather turns harsh, ride in comfort in the RANGER CREW® XP 1000 NORTHSTAR HVAC Edition. This special edition features a factory-installed heating and air conditioning system and the new, premium RANGER Pro Shield™ cab system –proven to have three-times better dust protection than competitive OEM offerings. Larger sealing surfaces and new gaskets help keep the controlled temperature in and dust out, while both front and rear ventilation provides better airflow and comfort for all passengers.

Next-Level Accessory Integration
The RANGER CREW XP 1000 takes accessory integration to new heights. The industry’s largest stock front bumper includes an integrated Polaris Glacier® plow mount as well as mounting points for lighting accessories and a Polaris winch – now featuring industry-first Rapid Rope Recovery technology. Additionally, the Polaris Pulse™ electrical system allows for plug-and-play installation of Polaris Engineered™ powered accessories.

With more than 200 options available, Polaris Engineered™ accessories – which have been designed, tested and validated with the machine – make it easier than ever to customize the RANGER CREW XP 1000 for any work or recreation application. For example, the RANGER Pro Shield™ cab system offers more than 1,800 customizable configurations; and Pro Armor Harvester® tires, developed in partnership with Pro Armor® specifically for RANGER, feature triple-belted sidewalls, a 10-ply rating and a 5,000-mile tread life.

Offered in Sage Green, Sunset Red Metallic and Polaris Pursuit® Camo, the all-new RANGER CREW XP 1000 will be available in dealerships starting in late April. Even with the 100-plus owner-inspired improvements, the machine starts at $16,299 US and $19,999 CAN.

I wish I had a reason to buy the Northstar edition.  Looks awesome.

These issues are certainly disappointing to see. That said, we currently have a 2015 Ranger XP900 that we purchased from Polaris after our long term review and a brand new 2018 General XP1000 that I'll be talking about a LOT in the near future.... Neither of our two examples have ever exhibited anything even close to a fire issue or even gotten overly hot.

      Anyone else with a crew cab (or possibly other cab style) notice that while driving at speeds 55mph or higher with the rear door windows all the way down results in an almost deafening whop whop whop like or flapping type of sound that practically hurts your ears?  Would be what I would call a low frequency.  It gets worse the more open the windows are.  My 2016 Sierra Crew did this as well, can't recall if my 2012 LTZ Crew did it or not but I think it did.  Any ideas what is the culprit?  I rarely drive with the rear windows down but when they are, it's maddening and almost makes my ear drums feel like they're going to pop.  Not something I'm worried about more than curious what causes it.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      The AT4 I purchased from the dealer, had everything but the performance package I wanted. So, the same day, I paid the extra cost to have it added. 
      Once it was finished, I was excited about the purchase and the way it sounded. Now, weeks later, I'm starting to get picky about things and making sure everything is how I want it.
      After my cousin brought it to my attention that I should've made sure all the work was actually done, I looked up what the performance package consisted of. 
      While I can see the performance exhaust is installed--I noticed that the tires on it are not the Goodyear Duratrac the GMC site lists; they're Bridgestone Dueler's. Next, the intake isn't the cone-type performance intake filter, its the flat fliter.
      Are these an alternate performance package option? Or did I get gipped? 
      If so, would the dealer be willing to recognize these missing details, or would they think I just swapped the parts myself?
      I'd go down to the dealer right now myself, but the oil field life keeps me at work. Haha.
       
      It's a long read, but I'd appreciate the input. Thank you.

      The new Ford Ranger did pretty well on its newest safety tests by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS), but it did not have the scores to earn either level of the Top Safety Pick award. The Ranger fell short in three ways overall. First, it scored Acceptable for its passenger side small frontal overlap crash test. Like some other manufacturers, Ford does not reinforce the passenger side of its Ranger as robustly as it does the driver's side. That boots the Ranger off of the Top Safety Pick Plus designation. Next, the Ranger's best headlights are only Marginal. That boots it off of the Top Safety Pick list. Finally, the child safety anchors are scored Marginal, which does not factor into the IIHS scores, but makes parents swear quite a bit. 
       
      You can see detailed score info at this link. IIHS has a good video with more details below.

      Has anyone experienced a similar issue? I have a 2019 Silverado trail boss and when you turn the fan on, whether it’s ac or heater, there is a noise that is not normal. It comes from the passenger side inside the dash area. It’s not a loud noise and if the stereo is on you won’t hear it. It sounds like the fan motor is off. 
      I wouldn’t bother taking it in if all trucks made the noise but they don’t. I had the dealership take me in another trail boss and there was no sound, just normal wind sound. 
      They changed a bearing saying that was the issue but it is still making the same noise. The second time I brought it in they said they are reporting it to GM. I brought it in today and the service desk worker said it’s “normal”. I asked why the others don’t make the noise and he said it’s “normal”. Obviously not normal or they would all make the same sound.
       
      Anyone know what it is??

      I have a 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and my key fob only has the lock/unlock, and the panic button on it. I saw that the official Chevy accessories page has the key fobs with remote start, tail gate unlock on them as well. If I get one, will I be able to have the dealership program it on my current truck so I can have remote start or is this only for replacement for owners that already have the same key fob?
