The 2020 Polaris RZR PRO XP Features, Specs, Comparison, Accessories

The Newest RZR Class

Polaris has added a new Class of Pro vehicles to the top of their line-up surpassing the XP class. The 3 new RZRs are the:

  • RZR Pro XP – $22,999 MSRP
  • RZR Pro XP Premium – $24,499 MSRP
  • RZR Pro XP Ultimate – $28,499 MSRP

Polaris essentially made the 2020 Pro XP a new vehicle from the ground up. Not just a variation of an older model.

2020 RZR Pro XP Release Dates:

On July 28th, 2019 Polaris announced the release of their three new RZRs. The Pro XP Premium and Pro XP Ultimate are available NOW and the Pro XP base model ships in January of 2020.

Polaris’ 3 Main Key Objectives for this Pro RZR Series: 

  • Design 
  • Performance 
  • Strength

Polaris’s purpose: to build a UTV that feels like the vehicle is centered around you, the driver. Ultimately creating a faster, stronger, more confident driver. They claim it’s more “Agile” than a Turbo S and the Pro XP can even corner harder!

Polaris redesigned this vehicle built around the driver so everything is centered around them and all instruments and controls are within reach.

This driving experience can be custom tailored adjusting to the drivers’ size and driving preferences. This makes it so that the driver doesn’t have to lean away from the seat or move their hands off of the steering wheel to change something.

Additionally, they have made the cockpit 4 inches wider, providing more space and comfort.


The seats have been redesigned as a one-piece shell mount seat structure coupled with soft independent seat pads that are separated apart from each other to increase airflow. 

The shape of these seats are really suited for a range of both smaller and larger-sized people and since they are adjustable seats, they really accommodate both short and tall drivers.

The driver’s seat can slide forward and also tilt providing more legroom and can be adjustable for the different types of driving conditions that might be present, whereas the passenger has tilt-only accommodations.

Both Driver and passengers seats have quick 6-point harness seat belts with auto retract that helps reduce unwanted seatbelt lock up that used to happen on previous models.

Polaris has added a lot more storage to the PRO XP including a bigger glove box, latching center console compartment, a couple of on-dash storage boxes, and tray storage under the dash screen.

Steering Wheel

The PRO XP Premium and Ultimate come with a steering wheel that has telescoping options in addition to the standard 3 tilt-adjustable positions, and a rubber molded steering wheel for better grip.

The steering wheel is smaller and has a flat bottom for easier hand over hand turning allowing for tighter turns.

The PRO XP Ultimate offers steering wheel controls for audio, including play and pause and even accessing Ride command suspension controls. The Polaris Icon button in the audio button cluster is a customizable control function for your choice of audio, screen switching, and navigating through GPS.


Ride Command is now Off-Grid, so accessing Group Ride allows you to connect with other vehicles in real-time independent from needing satellite coverage. You can now see your buddies ride within a mile or two and possibly further depending on line-of-sight conditions.

The Ultimate Trim Package includes a Rockford Fosgate Premium Audio System and with additional upgrades, you can get a lower dash-mounted subwoofer, as well as, speaker pods and tubes for the additional premium sound.


The frame of the PRO XP has been redesigned with a different cut angle that gives it a more sleek sporty look. The most noticeable difference is the roll cage and the angle of the front bars where the windshield would go if you had one. It now has a steeper more aggressive angle than previous models.

Door cutouts are now on the back part of the door so that the debris is deflected and not flying in directly at you. For added coverage, there is a door accessory that helps fill in this gap.

The bed box size has been increased and will fit a spare tire on it and still let you use the storage area underneath.

With the new easily removable bed box, you take out four hex screws and you have complete access to the engine for easier oil changes or other maintenance needs.

In addition, Polaris provides you with a huge array of optional features like an additional 30” spare tire rack that allows you to store additional gear underneath and really tailor your UTV to your offroad needs.


The top-end of the engine has been redesigned and the turbo is now liquid-cooled, bigger, and provides more boost and power

The horsepower has been increased to 181 horsepower over the Turbo XP’s 168 horsepower. Polaris designed the Pro XP’s power band to be between 20 and 50 mph where you need it the most.

Now there is a coil built directly on each spark plug which is more convenient and secure instead of the previous remote mounted ignition coil with plug wires.

They have redesigned the coolant line so that it naturally percolates allowing heat and trapped air to leave the engine allowing for faster recovery time.

The Pro XP has a newly designed clutching system and new drive with a round slider design that has more direct contact points and they help launch dirt and debris out. It has also been redesigned for better airflow to keep the temperatures lower around the belt.

On the clutch cover, the bolts are retained making them more secure to the cover so they aren’t as easily lost in the dirt during a belt change.

Now, with an RZR PRO XP, you can expect to get 2x more life out of a belt assuming you have broken it in properly. They have tested this new clutch system and have gotten 8,000 miles out the belt with some hard riding.


Compared to the RZR XP Turbo, the front suspension travel and ground clearance increased providing you a little more wiggle room when climbing those trails with rocks and obstacles to maneuver around.

Polaris also extended the Pro’s wheelbase by an additional 6 inches helping this vehicle handle whoops and take corners. 

One of Polaris’ main considerations was to keep this vehicle as flat and as smooth as possible no matter the terrain, like whoops and tight cornering, the driver might face.

In previous RZR’s when presented with a terrain surprise the driver might have slammed on the brakes locking up the RZR versus now if you have the Ultimate model you can just press the suspension emergency button (or ‘Oh Sh!t’ button as Polaris calls it) and almost instantly stiffen the shocks preventing your UTV from bottoming out.

The upgraded Dynamix 2.0 system is designed for on-the-fly adjustment of suspension modes directly on the steering wheel. It includes an emergency button to stiffen suspension (hold down) to lock into full compression in case of a washout, trail surprise, or drop off.

In normal driving mode, these auto-adjusting shocks adapt to turning applications hardening outside shocks and softening inside shocks for smoother cornering and its shocks calibrate for all 3 driving modes. 


The 2020 RZR Pro XP was built with a stronger frame and roll cage with 2” pipe that is continuous. The chassis had been completely re-designed into a one-piece stronger configuration never done before on a Polaris.

The seats have been lowered within the frame, changing the drivers center of gravity increasing the balance and stabilization of the vehicle. Yet at the same time, the seating accommodations can still maintain the driver’s desired sightlines and does not compromise the driver’s visibility

The suspension has high clearance A-arms, increased strength, and size of the radius rods, and trailing arms.

The Pro XP has the strongest chassis Polaris has ever built, as well as, drivetrain, transmission, knuckles, hubs, bearings, drop shafts, and half shafts have all been beefed up for a fully reinforced drive train.
