It brings added passenger and payload capacity to the world’s HARDEST WORKING. SMOOTHEST RIDING.® side-by-side.

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.
