RZR XP 1000 High Lifter


2020 RZR XP 1000 High Lifter Stealth Gray is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 151.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine My High Lifter will go anywhere I want; and then some!! The only thing I can complain about is my drivetrain seals went out at 100 miles. I don’t know if they were a bad batch or were put in wrong at the factory; but the dealer who fixed them under warranty said they had never seen all the seals go out all at once. She “should” be good to go now..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Polaris I love my RzR. It's the best thing made. just wish it would hold up better. 300 miles and have replaced 3 axels and one wheel bearing. That warranty wouldn't cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2018 XP4 Highlifter I was a little hesitant switching brands from CanAm but I'm happy I did! The machine has performed excellent. I did upgrade the tender springs and add 32" blackwater tires among many other accessories. The aftermarket springs made a huge difference. I love the long travel of a 4 seater paired with the ground clearance, gear reduction, snorkels, and a winch mounted up on the bumper- the highlifter was the perfect model for me. I do wish they offered other colors in the highlifter model but after adding a lot of orange accessories it's grown on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to go! I have had this machine for about 3 months. I am very pleased with its over al performance!! I was torn between a turbo model and the High lifter and I feel I made the right choice. If I was riding dunes, I would have went Turbo all day, but where I ride, I have tight trails, mud, rocks, mountains, etc and this machine can handle it all!!! And if you get a spare rim and tire combo, you can add even more opportunity! and this machine’s beefier drive train and suspension and lower “low” gear ratio and great ground clearance really put me over.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from All the features are good. After driving it for about 60 miles I noticed an oil leak had appeared in the garage floor from the motor. I found a bolt that holds the cases together was twisted off. Oil was leaking around the bolt. I took it to the dealer, they had to pull the motor out to repair it. I got it back about a week later. Drove it another hundred miles and noticed another oil leak. I took it back for repair and a week later they said the oil filter gasket was bad. All was covered under warranty. Now I've noticed part of the rear fender was broken from the repairs done on the motor. The dealer is ordering a new fender. So I payed a lot of money for my machine and three trips to the dealer for repairs I am tired of paying for fuel and wear and tear on my truck and trailer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine! I bought this 2018 highlifter 4 three months ago and have put maybe 500 kms on it since. I upgraded from a 2014 800 trail edition so the power difference is crazy. with the longer wheelbase the ride is a lot better and I haven’t had any real issues with length on the trails yet. I don’t have too much mud riding in my season so I swapped out the tires for a decent set of trail tires, handles great! Only real issue is that the mud edition doesn’t come with the full size fender flares, that should be stock for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome machine No perfect machines out there, but VERY little needs to be fixed about this one. Suspension springs too stiff of a ride. stiffer tender springs will keep machine off of the big stiff springs for a much better ride. A must if you have to trail ride a ways to the mud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mud beast I bought this for myself for Christmas. It never fails to impress me on what it’s capable of doing stock. Great in the mud dirt and even trails. If you’re looking to go Rock climbing or a ride a lot of trails with rocks you’ll definitely need a second set of tires as these do not do well at all in the rocks and especially on the road ( obviously ) Besides that it has been a great machine and I’ve only gotten stuck once because I bottomed out The low-end power is great in the mud even the mid range and top and are pretty good. I hit 82mph with me and my neighbor in it and it handled really well at high-speed I really wish they made a high lifter with a ride command as I definitely would’ve bought it. We like to play in the mud here in NC /SC But it would be nice to have Ride command for trips

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Ride I traded my Can Am XMR Maverick and the RZR is a smother ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertised This buggy will destroy the mud. I leave all the turbos in the dust on the muddy trails. However, this buggy struggles to keep up on the rocky trails and the slick hills. It’s only because of the tires. I bought a set of 30’’ carnivores to swap out when we ride somewhere the outlaw 2s aren’t needed. If you don’t ride in the creeks or the mud, buy a turbo. But if you want to go in the deep end, gotta be the highlifter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from XP 4 1000 rides awesome. I recently took my Brand new XP4 to WV to the outlaw trails. We rode in snow covered trails one day that turned into soupy trails the next day, when the snow melted. XP4 did awesome through the different types of conditions. We rode for days that totaled 200 miles. Saturday was 140 miles alone. Love this machine. I had a Can Am commander 1000 before, way more happier with this XP4 1000!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine This is the second High Lifter Edition RZR that I have owned . I owned a 2015 model and that is what led me to buy the 2018 model. It is a no brainer to buy the High Lifter Edition RZR. You get the factory front bumper and winch and full lower doors high clearance lower a arms and high clearance radius rods and factory snorkels. Stuff that you would have to pay extra for comes stick on it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I've made!! I've had my 19 xp1000 now for about 3 months and I have to say it was probably the best purchase I've ever made. Going from my racing wheeler to this was a whole new ball park and still learning stuff about it. I do have to say though these things are money pits but in a good way!! There is so many options and aftermarket parts that just make this thing even more top notch!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheep roll cages Bought 2018 high lifter in april. Sweet running buggy. However very cheep roll cages. Also for the price should have a full covering skid plate and stronger roll cage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2018 Xp4 highlifter review I've ownes a 2018 xp4 1000 highlifter edition for 3 months now and it's a great machine. It's geared 55% lower in low range high range feels the same it has heavy duty axles and great ground clearance just to name a couple things. A big improvement over my last 2016 xp4 1000. The clutch engagement is smooth as butter and the overall machine feels much more refined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is tuff I just made three month's with my 2019 RZR XP4 1000 High Lifter and i could'nt be more happy. I bought it for trail and mud riding in south Louisiana and it's performed amazing. I had clearance issue's with the ruts and stumps being too deep on some of the trails, so I did a 5" bracket lift and put bigger wheels on it. That changed the whole appearance and it looks 1000x better. The only issue that I've had was when the driveshaft broke. Polaris made me feel like I was on my own and they weren't warranting it. They pretty much made it sound like I broke it trail riding and was on my own. I had to make multiple phone calls too convince them that I was using the buggy for what I bought it for, mud and trail riding. Not a good experience at all Polaris! Also I bought it from John at Performance Powersports in Houma, LA and got a great deal and great customer service. They were top notch from the beginning to the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power After years of thinking about buying this High Lifter, I finally pulled the trigger. This machine exceeded all expectations. I no longer get stuck in the mud. It gives you feel of confidence that it will go through anything. I love being able to see my water temperature at all times. Also unlike my old machine, the radiator is allot easier to clean.

64" Width. 110 HP. 29.5" Mud Tires. 20.5" Usable Travel. For performance in the deepest of ruts and most challenging mud holes, our 2020 mudder devours the deep stuff.



More than just pure force, the power delivery of our 110 naturally aspirated HP is tailored for extreme mud performance. A thick powerband producing torque laden thrust, through our low mud gearing, keeps the Outlaw 2 tires gripping and ripping. Stomp the accelerator and the power instantly translates to top-end oomph for extra momentum in the drudge.



More than just a taller stature, the suspension was perfected to perform in the most challenging, mud-laden terrain. With arched front A-arms and rear radius rods, this mud-buster towers rocks and deep ruts with 15" of ground clearance. Unique shock calibrations & stiffer springs keep proper ride height, even when overburdened with sludge.
