Sportsman XP® 1000


2020 Sportsman® XP 1000 Premium Stealth Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stupid 6 mo in and only 25 hrs. Power steering failed on first muddy and rocky trail. Power and engine performance is stupid. Who needs that much power? Well...I forever will now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like the atv. We enjoy riding it a lot. Bought it a couple months ago and it is the most comfortable Polaris I have had yet. Runs strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and powerful I bought this in the spring of 2019 after selling my 2008 sportsman 800.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Power and Comfort I was interested in this particular model as it was factory equipped with almost everything I wanted, leaving me with very little to do other than ride. The power of this machine is impressive but the comfort is equally important, at least to me. I don't know exactly how Polaris does it, but the seat and the riding position work together to allow for all day riding comfort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Powerfull quad lacking quality Very powerful atv. Has great options. Good for play but lacks a sturdy hitch receiver for work. The other downfall is the rear sway bar rubs the rear shocks. This is on my new unit with 80 miles. My buddy has the same problem on his machine we bought weeks apart. But he has double my machines miles and double the damage from the sway bar rubbing the shock. poor design

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sprortman XP1000 hunter edition Power steering is the main upgrade I was looking for in upgrading from my 2013 850. Power is awesome, I like the work-standard- performance switch option as well. More power than expected.. heated grips and thumb warmers are an added bonus. Cup holder, re configuration of the trunk to keep moisture out. It’s going to be a great ice fishing rig. Rich from Iowa

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing in every way! I've owned many Polaris ATV's, big and small, as well as a Ranger. For the first time in the ATV segment, I decided to go with a twin, a Sportsman 850 SP in 2017. Couldn't be happier and it does everything I need an ATV to do including plow a lot of snow! Fast forward to 2018, I decided to buy another ATV and went with a Sportsman 1000 Hunter. WOW! What a machine! I didn't think it could be that much better than the 850, but it is. Throttle, suspension, brakes, power steering, tires, performance adjustability and the power! I am so impressed with this machine, I would recommend it to anyone. My ranger was fully loaded with cab, HVAC, plow, gun racks, etc...The only thing I did not have was tracks so I'm no stranger to a heavily accessorized machine. This Hunter 1000 is truly awe inspiring and the only thing I think it should have as part of the package is hand guards. Polaris definitely hit it out of the park with this machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate ATV This is our latest Polaris ATV in a long history of Polaris ATV's going back to the 90's and our first Explorer and Trail Boss, then Sportsman 500, 700, 800 and the 850XP. This is the Ultimate in engineering and performance, hands down. We ride in the desert of western AZ and the mountains of NW CO primarily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MatteCopper! I was on the search for a matte copper or lava orange sportsman xp1000 but all the dealers around me were sold out. I had to drive 13 hours round trip to get this machine, but that was one of the best decisions I made! For making the trip, the dealer installed the accessories for free and gave me a discount because I added quite a few. I love everything about this machine! The 3 throttle selections, suspension, aggressive tires, color, and factory Accessories they make for these machines are amazing! I mainly use my four wheeler for deer hunting and the occasional atv trip. This machine has made it through all different kinds of terrain I've thrown at it! I would not hesitate buying a Polaris of any trim, but HIGHLY recommend the XP1000 Sportsman. Hit the throttle and hang on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Great machine thus far, which I entirely expected. I anticipate and hope this Sportsman performs and remains as dependable as my 2004 Sportsman 600. The power steering is amazing and the incredible engine power in my new 1000 has to be managed appropriately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Polaris steps up with 2018 Sportsman XP I have owned several Polaris sportsman’s over the years but this 2018 XP 1000 has been improved greatly this year. The suspension does not wallow or push in the turns and still gives a soft ride. The seat is pillow soft and has a non slip cover. The engine is powerful and smooth but seems like there should be more hit on the bottom end for a 1000cc engine. It is still fast enough to get you into trouble if you are not an experienced rider paying attention, yes it will haul the mail that’s for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine I love it! They fixed a lot of the issues from previous years on the 2019 model. Smooth ride everything about it feels great. Just took it on a 60 mile trail ride on rough trails it did awesome. My only issue is they only offer it it one color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2018 1000 Sportsman Hunter Edition Got this atv for mainly hunting but love the performance for playing. Variable performance setting is great option as I like the ability to tone it down when riding off-road through the woods while hunting

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power and Performance second to none I owned a 2012 850XP Touring and was so happy with it I bought a 2018 Sportsman XP 1000. I didn’t think it was possible to make it better but WOW what a difference. This is the best ATV I’ve ever driven

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great workhorse Bought this for spraying pastures and general work on the farm.Only reason is does not get 5 star rating is because it is a fire starter. Started 2 fires already because of location of exhaust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing machine Very little can improve this vehicle, but front LED lights should be a requirement. That would definitely make it a perfect machine. Factory Updatable GPS would be another plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a beast! Replaced my 2006 Sportsman 500 Browning edition with this. It’s an upgrade in every category. No place it can’t go and can do it with ease. Very happy with purchase.
