2021 RANGER 1000 Sagebrush Green is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 379.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible clutch This vehicle has the worst clutch I have ever seen. I bought it new and has been like this the whole time. When trying to move forward or backwards slowly, this thing just bucks and jerks. You have to give it almost half throttle to get it going. Once going it is fine. There’s no way to back up to a trailer or something with this clutch like this. I have been around many Polaris ATVs and never had anything like this. Should have bought a sportsman.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy Have less then 25 hrs on ranger and have had to replace the throttle sensor twice seems to be common thing in the newer models have several friends that have to replace theres as well. Seems like polaris needs to find the issue and fix but they wont because its all about the money. I also own a 2010 that has is still going strong to this day no mechanical issue just normal wear tear i drive it more then the 2020 because i am afraid of it breaking down when out ridding

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Riding into the sunset with my Sunset Red 1000 After 4 months, enjoying the Ranger 1000 Premium. This is my first UTV. Glad I waited until the 1000 debuted. It has all the features I was needing for farm and ranch use. Have added the front and rear wind shields, top, front and rear HD bumpers, rear view mirror, and horn. All Polaris brand products. Only questionable quality concern is the shifting. Sometimes hard to shift into the correct gear. Not sure if this will get better with age or worse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best work and play side by side I love the way the unit handles and especially the short turning radius. Great for doing chores. It has plenty of power and had performed flawlessly when carrying full loads of firewood. I have used it numerous times for hunting and I love the increased cargo area and the enclosed cab when the weather is bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very capable machine Within the few short months I've had it I've used the heck out of it. However, the real test is yet to come. We bought this for 1. Plowing snow, 2. Hauling stuff, and 3. for use camping. Had to buy a new trailer to haul it (our previous utility trailer was too narrow). The dump bed is a fantastic feature! The only complaints are the gear selector and the throttle. In a car/truck, park is always up (not down like on this vehicle) and the throttle is unpredictable. Never quite sure how much pressure to apply to get it to move.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ranger 1000 camo Thus far Ranger seems ok. Got to make sure you get in gear, it does not always just shift into Forward or reverse easy.? i am disappointed i did not buy glass windshield that opens up. It gets pretty hot in June/July , i'd rather run my 4 wheelers when its 85 plus degrees. But this fall and winter it will be nice working cows and hunting. As of now that is the only change i would make in the options i chose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk 2020 Polaris ranger premium I’ve had this for a little over an month and had to get the front diff replaced right away because of how noisy it was it still didn’t fix the problem and it’s an embarrassment to drive down the road. I wouldn’t recommend one of these to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for the whole family! We have almost 400 miles on our 2020 Ranger 1000 and are absolutely loving it! From trail riding to daily tasks on the farm it has been nothing but reliable. There are times when the extra speed and power of the XP would have been nice, but the low end torque of the SOHC 1000 works great for the chores on the farm. Serviceability has also been improved over the previous models, and I do most of my own service work so that is huge! So far I have no complaints and hope for years of fun out of my 2020 Ranger 1000!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good running not so great put together quality So far the machine has run great but I was missing an a arm guard and the driver side seat wasn’t fully installed correctly. The seat was just butt up to the frame instead of set into the frame via the guarding on the back of the seat. Not sure if they come to the dealers fully put together or not. Not very happy to spend that kind of money and not have a unit that’s fully installed correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deer lease truck Overall the Ranger is very nice. It does what it needs to. And has plenty of power and the room in the cab is nice as I’m 6’7” y’all and my knees don’t hit dash. There is o luv one thing so far that I would complain about and that is the flimsy storage boxes under the seat. I noticed they started to warp and push downward into the mounting holes from people sitting on seat and riding over bumps. NO they are not heavy people. They end up half pushed thru the brackets holding them up I’m afraid one of these days it’s gonna fall and all my stuff will end up getting spilt down the trail

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not at all satisfied I bought this in June and the power of this 1000 is no different than the 500..the only difference is my 1000 is over priced due to lack of power..and I've owned several 1000 sportsman

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice advancement This my second Ranger. I had my first for 16 years and it was a great piece of equipment. I was hesitant to try a newer model. Boy was I surprised at the advancements. I love my new 1000 model. It's added features of engine braking, park locking, power steering and quieter running engine make this Ranger a treat to ride and work. I would recommend this model with no reservations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs Overall, I’m very happy with it. Fits two people comfortably. A large variety of options available for customizing it. Living up north, I chose the winter prep package because I want to be able to use it during the winter months and be comfortable in the cab. Hauls enough for work around my property. Nice and comfortable trail riding. Great for getting to/from Deer blinds, favorite bird hunting spots. And great for scenic rides in the fall colors. Plan to take it Ice fishing this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I purchased this unit about 4 months ago for use on a small farm. I use it for irrigation and spraying. The unit is quiet, has a nice ride, and is nimble and easy to get around with. I especially like the turf mode for getting around the farm with. The unit has a nice big normal battery which is easily accessable to connect my sprayer to. I wish it had doors like the Kawasaki Mule, the nets are a pain to close and open. I had nets on a past Ranger and it wasn't long before the plastic squeeze clips broke. I will be looking at getting doors if I can find some that are affordable. Based on the cost of adding doors I wish I would have purchased the Kawasaki Pro FXT which comes with really nice doors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2020 Polaris Ranger Enjoying the machine so far. Only one real issue I have is that the decals on the bed have torn very easily I can tear them with my fingernail. Not sure if this is a problem fixed by new decals or if they will tear the same way. I take care of my equipment and keep it clean the decals falling off has really disappointed me. I purchased the machine from Shoals Outdoor Sorts (Florence, AL.) I asked the representative at the dealership about any special offers he failed to mention anything about the “Hero Advantage” when I called back and questioned about it the representative did not know any of the details about the offer and asked to call me back when he responded back he informed me I got a better deal than the “Hero Advantage” and tried to sell me more warranty on top of the extended warranty I already purchased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buckatunna Long Creek Hunting Club - Polaris Range I use my new Polaris at the hunting camp. The biggest issue that I have is - two members purchases Honda’s and they’re able to get to locations on the club that I cannot (without getting stuck). I’m also disappointed that Polaris isn’t utilizing LED lights on 2021 models (really should be standard). The paint on the exhaust shield peeled off right away. This isn’t an issue — just looks bad on a new buggy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome I’ve owned my Ranger 1000 for a couple months and it has been awesome! Everything has performed very well except there is a delay when pushing the gas pedal. Once you put it in low gear there is a lot of play in the pedal until the transmission kicks in. It also does it in reverse. Not sure if that is normal and from what I’ve been told it is. I am no mechanic. It definitely has been fun to play with as well as use it on the farm. I highly recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good machine My 2020 ranger 1000. Is a pretty nice machine easy to get in and out of. Ride is good. Power is good. There are a few cons the biggest being the exaust temp when u run it down the rod or on a trail hard the header pipe is glowing cherry red. HOT!! WInd shield was not put in correct and won’t shut. 600 miles in and the engine is making a ticking noise at a idle. Not sure I would trade my 900 in for it again if I had the chance to go back in time

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More leg room then similar models Disappointed with the quality. I’ve owned Yamaha and Honda ATVs and have never had issues . I have less than 1000 miles on my ranger and the decals are coming off, the throttle sensor had to be replaced , my CV axle is already clicking

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied customer I bought my ranger 3 months ago. I was lied to by salesman and service department. I was told my unit had no reverse chain also stated in polaris ads. Come to find out it dose indeed have a reverse chain. Very unsatisfied customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my Ranger My Ranger is hard to shift into high gear, took it back to the dealership and was told it would get better and it has somewhat, but other than that everything is good. I’m going to take it back soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Had a 2020 570 before this and it was a terrible machine. Front differential vibration and noise. The first chance we had we traded in for this 1000 premium and it's a night and day difference. Plenty of power and extremely comfortable. Couldn't be happier. My only regret is I should have spent the extra money in the beginning and never purchased the 570. Spend the extra and buy this 1000 premium you won't be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely noisy in the front end I bought mine a few months ago and I am very unhappy with it and Polaris for selling a flawed machine, and I am a long time Polaris owner so it’s tough for me to say this.
