What To Expect From The 2023 Polaris General Lineup

Do you know what time it is?

Well, I don’t know about you, but here at Everything Polaris General blog, it’s the New Polaris Generals gossip o'clock.

It’s Fall, and this is the time of the year when the air nips and we discuss, analyze, and simp on new models and different editions.


What if you had a pal named ‘Steve ‘O Clueless’ looking for SXS for putting it to work on the property, as well as whipping up the local trails for fun. 

Which UTV lineup would you recommend?

Without a shadow of a doubt, everyone in the UTV industry would agree that Polaris General machines are by far going to be his best bet

Polaris General line up is purposely designed and assembled as a cross between high performance of Polaris RZR and super utility of Polaris Ranger.

Often used as a workhorse and an all-out play machine, this versatile all-purpose lineup is getting some exciting new models for 2023.

In August, Polaris off-road announced great news for all you Polaris General fan girls, revealing that the 2023 lineup has three models and six variants.

We have some pretty exciting changes to look forward to, but first, let’s just have a quick ‘n short brief about Polaris Generals, the models they come in, and earlier variants.

Biggest Takeaways from Polaris General Line up 2023 Announcement

The new 2023 Polaris General model lineup has been pared down significantly as compared to 2022.

The only 60” stance variant they are keeping for 2023 is a two-seater Polaris General 1000 Sport.

Unlike 2022 when Polaris launched four editions of 2-seat 60” stance General 1000s and two editions of 4-seat Polaris General 1000 with 60” stance.

So, if you wanted to have a ride with your family in one of the new Polaris General 1000s, you’ll have to decide between the wife or kids, cause there ain’t no seats for everyone. 

Tough call, isn’t it?

Also, one important and nice thing to notice is that in 2022, the starting price of Polaris General XP 1000 (General XP Deluxe) was $26,999 

But probably the best news out of the entire 2023 lineup announcements is Polaris is going to release a Sport edition of Polaris General XP 1000 for the first time.

And that too, with a starting price of $24,499 now, the Polaris General Flagship XP 1000 model will now be more accessible to many riders tight on budget.
