2020 Polaris Snowmobiles

Polaris produces industry-leading and benchmark lines. Their sleds have led the way for sixty years. All around the world, the name Polaris has become well known for trail sledding and off-trail wilderness adventure.

The snowmobile you choose will depend on what you intend to do with it. Polaris with the help of consumers and Polaris dealerships providing feedback produces several different lines that specialize in diverse terrain and conditions.

Before you purchase your snowmobile, decide what you will be doing with it most.


Mountain Snowmobiles

The most extreme, fun and sometimes scary place to operate your snowmobile is on a mountain. With steep slopes and a lot of up and downhill action, mountains can challenge the best rider.

In 2020, the Polaris RMK is the design line that is designed to tackle mountains. If you live in a steep hill country or plan to operate in any kind of mountains, this is the sled for you.

Designed to be the lightest and strongest possible, the 2020 RMK will get you up and down safely. The RMK is also designed to have power where it counts.

These sleds come with three different types of engines: the 600 and 800 Cleanfire and the 850 Patriot Engine. The RMK is known as the ultimate mountain sled you can buy.


Trail Sleds

Nothing beats the fun and joy of sledding down trails with power at your fingertips. The smooth speed and acceleration make trail sleds a joy to operate.

If you are operating mostly on trails, the 2020 Polaris Snowmobile line has you covered. The Indy and the Rush are the two models designed with trail sledding in mind.

These vehicles are built to be comfortable and durable. Sledding down a trail on your 2020 Polaris snowmobile will feel great and won’t leave you sore and tired.

The Indy snowmobile is designed to negotiate trail conditions with speed and a smooth ride. You can add extra seating or storage to your sled quick and easy.

Off Trail

You might be the kind of person that likes to get out where not many people dare to go. If you want to make new trails for you and your friends to ride or see the unspoiled wilderness, Polaris has a line up for you.

The Voyageur line is designed for those who want to get out and experience the wilderness by going off-trail. These sleds have power and performance to be both fun and functional work vehicles.

If you are breaking trails or want to joyride around, these sleds are built to perform. If you have to journey into the wilderness for work, the Voyageur line will deliver accessories and capability to match.

You may be surprised to know that crossover isn’t just a term used for SUVs. The Titan and Switchback are designed with both off-trail and on-trail performance.
