Yamaha Viking 

Available at a mid-level price, the Yamaha Viking is arguably one of the best UTV on the market today. With a four-wheel drive and 3 total seats, it can handle both rough and smooth terrains. 

This vehicle possesses 1,500 pounds of towing capacity, making it great for heavy-duty purposes. Equipped with a 686cc, 4-stroke engine, it moves at speeds of over 50 miles per hour. With a retractable back hitch, it makes storage and dumping easy. 

All in all, this is as good of a UTV as you’re going to find. If you’re looking for a high-end vehicle at a reasonable price, this is a great option. 

 

Polaris Ranger Crew XP 1000 EPS

One of the higher-priced UTVs on the market, the Polaris Ranger Crew XP 1000, offers top-notch power and storage capabilities. Featuring both 2 and 4-wheel drive, it can handle conditioners of all kinds with great ease. 

Possessing 2,500 pounds of towing capacity, this is one of the strongest UTVs around. In addition to three-person seating, it also provides a great deal in the way of storage space. Stocked with an 82HP engine, it can reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. 

 

Toro Workman HDX 

Next up is the Toro Workman HDX. While it’s the most expensive UTV on our list, it’s also one of the more functional, providing great power, storage space, and towing capacity. 

This vehicle can move at speeds of around 25 miles per hour, meaning that it has plenty of speed to travel distances, but much less speed than some other models on the market. With 4-wheel drive capabilities, it can handle all terrains. 

A beast of a UTV, it can tow around 3,500 pounds. Not to mention, it possesses one of the largest storage beds on the market. 

 

Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT

Available at a mid-range price, the Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT excels in the amount of passenger space it provides. Capable of comfortably seating up to 6 people, it’s great for short-distance transportation. 

This isn’t to say that it lacks in other areas, though. With a four-wheel drive, it can tow up to 2,000 pounds in a wide variety of terrains. While the storage bed on this vehicle isn’t quite as spacious as some of the others you’ll find, it still offers more than enough space to store miscellaneous tools and supplies. 

As far as speed goes, this UTV tops out at around 45 miles per hour. This is fairly standard amongst modern UTVs. 

 

Polaris RZR 170 EFI

If you’re looking for a youthful UTV at a reasonable price, you might want to consider the Polaris RZR 170 EFI. Sold for around half the price of other top-end UTVs, it provides a great deal in the ways of power and performance. 

Equipped with two seats, this vehicle is designed for two passengers only. Stopping at 2-wheel drive, it’s as safe as possible for younger, inexperienced drivers. It possesses a top speed of only 15 miles per hour. 

While this UTV doesn’t provide a great deal of towing power or storage space, it workes terrifically as a starter vehicle for newbies looking to get the hang of things. 

 

Yamaha Wolverine X4 EPS SE

Arguably the best utility side by side on the market today, the Yamaha Wolverine X4 EPS SE, offers everything you could ever want or need in a UTV. While it’s on the pricey side, it’s well worth the cost. 

With 4-wheel drive, this vehicle can handle all terrains with ease. It also has four seats, so it can hold an entire family. At top speed, this UTV can reach around 52 miles per hour. 

It offers respectable towing capacity and storage space, capable of pulling loads of up to 2,000 pounds. However, where it really excels is in its speed and off-road capabilities. 

 

Argo 750 HDI ST

On the hunt for an amphibious UTV? If so, you might consider the Argo 70 HDI ST. This vehicle is equipped with 8 fat and floatable wheels, allowing it to not only handle solid terrains but a range of different liquid ones as well. 

Possessing bench seating, it could reasonably sit up to 6 people. Equipped with a spacious storage bed, it can haul a large number of tools and materials at once. 

Speed-wise, this vehicle is limited, moving at just 20 miles per hour tops. As far as towing capacity goes, it can handle around 1,800 pounds. 

 

John Deere Gator XUV560E S4

One of the top-rated utility vehicles for those on a budget, the John Deere Gator XUV560E S4, thrives on a number of fronts. Available for a mid-level price, it’s equal parts fast and powerful. Not to mention, it provides a reasonable amount of storage space. 

This UTV is equipped with four seats: two in the front and two in the back. Moving at speeds of up to 28 miles per hour, it’s not blazing fast but is fast enough to accommodate quick transport. 

Featuring 4-wheel drive, it can be used on both smooth and rough terrains. For its meagre price, this is about as functional a UTV as you’re going to find.
