The Polaris Utility segment has been limited to variations of the venerable WideTrak in the past.

Although it has always been a very capable sled in this category, the product planners felt the market required more selection for buyers looking for both work and pleasure from their snowmobile – especially in applications where lightness and flotation are a big factor.

In 2014, Polaris will offer two new models, the 600 Indy Voyager 144 and the 550 Indy Voyager 144.

Certainly, the 144 nomenclature means these sleds both come with a deep lug (2-inches) 155×15 track, 11.5 gallon fuel tank, big Gripper skis, a tall windshield and electric start. Both use Ryde FX MPV shocks.

The 600 comes with Polaris P-85 clutches (roller secondary) and the 550 uses the new Powerbloc setup.

The Voyager series are also equipped with a large steel rack at the rear with ample tie-down capacity for cargo.

The target with the Voyager line-up is lightweight versatility for users who want to do double duty combining both work and fun snowmobiling.

These sleds deliver excellent pulling and hauling power and because of their huge footprint, will also climb steep grades or trudge through the lightest powder without getting buried.

By adding to its model list in this segment, Polaris is pretty much guaranteeing it will be a player in a category it hasn’t been front and center in before.
