Weighing In On The Dimensions Of The Polaris RZR Lineup: Weight, Height, Width, And Length (2023)

Weighing In On The Dimensions Of The Polaris RZR Lineup: Weight, Height, Width, And Length (1)

In some cases, bigger is better. But when it comes to the size of your Polaris RZR, it really depends on the applications and intended use. All else being equal, getting a heavy edition of the Polaris RZR fully accelerated and up to speed will take longer. That being said, a lighter and more agile Polaris RZR S 800, S 900, or S 1000 won’t have the same cargo and passenger capacity as a 4-door Polaris RZR model. On top of performance, things like trail width restrictions, trailer size limitations, and fuel efficiency are also important factors to examine. But no matter what your riding style is like and regardless of the terrain preferences you may have, here are some things you should know about the weight, height, width, and length of Polaris' RZR sport UTV lineup!

Polaris RZR Weight

Weighing In On The Dimensions Of The Polaris RZR Lineup: Weight, Height, Width, And Length (2)

The dry weight of a stock Polaris RZR can range from 532 pounds -- the weight of the RZR 170 EFI -- to 2,026 pounds -- the weight of the RZR PRO XP 4. The weight of your Polaris RZR will also increase as you start adding aftermarket accessories. In addition to affecting the sag, stiffness, and rebound of your vehicle’s suspension system, the weight of your Polaris RZR will also dictate your recovery options. As a general rule, the winch you use should be capable of pulling at least double the weight of your machine. So for those with, say, a Turbo S 4 Velocity RZR that weighs in at 1,943 pounds, something like a 2,500 Lb Warn winch just isn’t going to cut it. Although a snatch block could be used to augment the power of your off-road winch, with a heavier RZR edition, a winch with at least 4,500 Lbs of pulling power is advised.

Although it is important to understand the implications of weight with regards to stock Polaris RZRs, one thing about the weight of a Razor, is that it usually doesn’t stay the same for long. A majority of riders slap on aftermarket Polaris RZR accessories as soon as they can afford them, with bigger tires and bigger wheels being among the most popular aftermarket accessories for the Polaris RZR. With bigger tires and larger wheels comes more unsprung weight, and with more unsprung weight comes more rotating mass for the clutch and transmission to deal with. Polaris engineers designed the Polaris RZR clutch for the weight of the stock tires and wheels. So by adding unsprung mass to your rig, you increase the likelihood of clutch issues if you don’t also add a clutch kit or adjust the clutch weights and clutch springs.

Polaris RZR Height

Weighing In On The Dimensions Of The Polaris RZR Lineup: Weight, Height, Width, And Length (4)

When discussing the height of the Polaris RZR, two measurements are important to think about: ground clearance and total height. Regarding the former, things like Polaris RZR bracket lifts, Polaris RZR suspension lifts, and Polaris RZR portal gear lifts are often used to achieve more ground clearance. Add a metal roof, a winch bumper, and a cargo rack to your RZR and you’re sure to experience a loss in ground clearance. But with one of the aforementioned Polaris RZR lift kits, you can counteract, and even reverse the effects that heavy accessories have on your machine's ground clearance.

Tender springs and Polaris RZR Aid Tenders can also be used to recover ground clearance after excessive weight is added to your vehicle. But although RZR Aid Tenders are great for getting the vehicle's stance right, significant ride improvements can be gained from things like SDI crossover rings and true dual-rate springs. Getting the spring rates optimized for your particular setup as well as your riding style is crucial. And while sending your shocks into a place like Walker Evans or Shock Therapy to have them revalved will bring about large performance gains and incredible plushness, at that point, you’re already spending nearly half of the cost of a new set of Fox Shocks. So if you ride fast and over rough terrain, Fox Shocks for both a smooth ride as well as more ground clearance might be the better setup.

If the top of your machine is too tall, you can back off the preload in your shocks to lower the UTV's total height. Your radius rods and axles should have a slight downward angle for maximum travel without bottoming out under throttle, and your Razor should be 13-14” off the ground with stock Bighorn tires installed for an ideal ride quality. Too low and you’ll see your shocks bottoming out on whoops and rocks before they should, creating a harsh ride with less travel. With some limit straps, however, you can prevent your shocks from bottoming out on full droop, while still lowering the preload enough to achieve the desired height.

After adding bigger tires and a lift kit, you might get tired of your Polaris RZR roof constantly smacking down tree limbs on the trail. Modifying your rig to make it taller might also be problematic if you've got an enclosed trailer or short-ceiling garage / storage shed. So if you want to reduce your RZR’s total height without diminishing its ground clearance, cage chops and aftermarket roll cages might be right for you. With the right reinforcement braces, chopping the stock cage down to size is a viable option. But if you lack the tools, experience, or know-how to conduct metal fab work, companies like UTV Inc., TMW Offroad, and CageWRX offer aftermarket Polaris RZR cages that are considerably shorter than stock. The Super Shorty or Baja Spec by CageWRX, for example, will not only lower your vehicle’s total hight, but it will also make your bike more sleek, streamlined, and aerodynamic!

Polaris RZR Width

Weighing In On The Dimensions Of The Polaris RZR Lineup: Weight, Height, Width, And Length (7)

According to the laws of physics, the shorter your RZR wheelbase is, the more topheavy it will be. Where stability is concerned, the wider your RZR is, the better. Polaris RZR wheel spacers can be used to widen the stance of your side-by-side, and so too can offset wheels. A Trail & Rock edition of the RZR XP 1000, for example, will be 68” in the front with 5+2 wheels instead of 64”, while wheels with a more aggressive offset can widen Non-Turbo RZRs to over 70 inches.

Go too wide with spacers or offset rims, however, and you’ll not only lose the ability to traverse windy wooded trails, but you might also limit your access to width-restricted trail systems. Some trails only allow access to vehicles under 72” wide, while others have max width limits of 68” and even 62”. Knowing which ORV trails have enforced maximum widths can save you a bunch of hassle. And if you’re right on the cusp, perhaps widening your UTV for better balance isn’t the best idea for where you live.

Polaris RZR Length

Weighing In On The Dimensions Of The Polaris RZR Lineup: Weight, Height, Width, And Length (8)

Polaris RZR 4 models will obviously be longer than their two-door counterparts, but at 122” long, even the two-door Polaris RZR High Lifter is nearly as long as the RZR 4 800 (which measures 130 inches in total length). Aside from passenger capacity and cargo room, the length of your RZR will also affect its turning radius. With things like Polaris RZR steering stops installed, your machine’s turning radius will be horrible, regardless of whether you’ve got a two-door or four-door unit. Remove your steering stops, however, and you increase the likelihood of axle damage -- especially when backing up at full turn.

Unlike width, height, and weight, there are few ways to increase or decrease the length of your Polaris RZR. Forward a-arms and extended trailing arms can move your wheels further forward / backward, and bed extenders / tow hitches can lengthen the vehicle as well. But as far as the chassis length goes, you’re pretty much stuck with what you’ve got -- so making the right choice from the beginning is crucial!
