MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Taking personalization and customization to the next level, Polaris Slingshot has unveiled its 2023 model year lineup. Featuring exciting and vibrant colorways, along with countless combination options direct from the factory, the 2023 lineup inspires drivers to design their own ride. Slingshot offers a host of accessories across style, comfort, sound, and technology that allow drivers to personalize their ride to best suit their lifestyle.
“Whether you’re looking to elevate your everyday, escape on an epic adventure, or utilize the three-wheel canvas for self-expression, the 2023 Polaris Slingshot delivers limitless possibilities to design your perfect ride,” said Chris Sergeant, Polaris Slingshot Vice President. “Each year we continue to evolve the lineup by listening to our riders, and this year is another example of thoughtful additions and enhancements that answer the call and serve our passionate owners.”
Exciting New Colorways
Delivering an entirely new look for the Slingshot lineup, 2023 introduces a variety of traditional and exotic paint colors. While colors like Jet Black on the S with Technology Package, the SL’s Cobalt Blue, and SLR’s Red Shadow continue to be classic color options, head-turning paint schemes like the SL’s Pacific Teal, the SLR’s Lime Shadow, and the R’s Miami Blue Fade available on select models deliver a pop of color and a vibrant design to the Slingshot lineup.

Customer Requested Accessories
In response to customer feedback, Polaris Slingshot is introducing two new factory accessories for 2023. Slingshot adds convenience with a RAM® X-Grip Phone Mount and an Excursion Rearview Mirror, which will be available in spring 2023. The new Slingshot cell phone mounts to the center of the Slingshot dash – offering easy viewing and accessibility.
Enhanced Infotainment System
Slingshot’s available 7-inch Touchscreen Display powered by RIDE COMMAND further enhances the user experience. Along with key vehicle information, the available integrated infotainment system offers mobile phone connectivity via Bluetooth® and USB. Drivers can seamlessly access Apple CarPlay®, along with turn-by-turn GPS navigation with connected services – which is standard on R models, but available via accessory upgrade for other RIDE COMMAND-equipped models.
More Customization Options than Ever Before
With more than 50 new premium painted accessories available, owners have even more options than ever to personalize their Slingshot. Whether adding color-matched painted parts or contrasting with pops of color, owners can design their ride with accessories like the Slingshade® top, Rear Fender, Exterior Painted Accents, Belt Guard and Front Grille. In addition, owners can add convenience and comfort by adding the Excursion Top, RAM® X-Grip Phone Mount, or a variety of integrated storage bags.
When building their ride on the Slingshot website, customers have several configuration options – making each vehicle assembled at the Slingshot factory personalized for each customer. After selecting their preferred model, paint color, transmission type, and either the sporty manual or accessible AutoDrive transmission, customers can pick and choose between different wheels, seats, and hoods. For example, any Slingshot model can be outfitted with the aggressively designed Vented Sport Hood or add Heated and Cooled Seats. In addition, customers can choose to upgrade select models by adding Aluminum Roll Hoops, adding XK Glow® Interior Lighting, or enhancing their sound with Stage 3 Audio by Rockford Fosgate®, which integrates speakers into the roll hoops placed directly behind each seat’s headrest.
Available Key Accessory Upgrades
Vented Sport Hood, Excursion Top, and Slingshade®
Available in 16 different colors, the Vented Sport Hood improves aerodynamics and cockpit airflow via vented fenders and a hood scoop, while adding aggressive style. The Vented Sport Hood comes stock on the Slingshot R, but is available as an accessory upgrade for all other 2020-2023 models. For additional style and extra shade for sunny days, the Excursion Top and Slingshade® are the two available top options on select models. The Excursion Top elevates riding comfort with a canvas top that’s easy to install and remove, ready for install on 2022 and newer vehicles. The Slingshade® sets the standard with its vertical opening T-Top panels featuring friction hinge technology and impressive fit and finish. Designed alongside the vehicle, Slingshade® flaunts sleek lines and automotive-grade finishes, color-matched to the vehicle. Getting in and out is easy with T-Top panels that feature tinted windows to retain overhead views and provide extra cockpit light. Slingshade® is available as an accessory upgrade for all 2020-2023 models.
Heated and Cooled Seats
The addition of Heated and Cooled seats extends the driving season and enhances the driving experience. The seats are powered by industry-leading Thermoelectric technology and flexible High-Tech Graphene material with three seat settings for optimal heating and cooling. Easy-to-access large control buttons are back-lit and feature haptic feedback.
Slingshot offers premium wheels for outstanding performance and distinctive style. With the addition of the premium Brembo® braking system and its multi-piston, painted calipers and lightweight rotors, owners get the ultimate level of performance, aesthetics, and comfort.
Standard in all Slingshot models, with the exception of the S, is a state-of-the-art, 100-watt Rockford Fosgate® audio system. The addition of the Stage 3 Roll Hoop Audio Kit by Rockford Fosgate® in each headrest allows drivers to both upgrade their sound and customize their look by either matching or contrasting with their Slingshot’s color scheme.
With the Interior LED Lighting by XKGlow®, drivers can now flaunt their true colors and match their driving mood by synchronizing the interior lights to change with their music through an exclusive Slingshot app. The lights include the full red, green, and blue color light spectrum for total customization.
