2007 Sportsman 6x6
Polaris Tough Times Six

Sportsman 6x6Uniquely equipped to take riders and large loads of gear to off-road destinations a four-wheel vehicle cannot reach, the Sportsman 6x6 is the choice of sports and recreation, farm, utility and adventure groups that need to haul large loads of gear to hard-to-reach locations.

Sportsman 6x6 owners enjoy true six-wheel drive due to Polaris’ exclusive On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD). The system automatically engages when the rider needs more forward traction. It reverts to 4WD automatically when AWD is no longer needed.

To complement the true six-wheel drive and receive maximum traction from all six wheels, Polaris designed the Sportsman 6x6’s center and rear axle suspension with unique and independent suspensions. The center pair of wheels has a progressive rate swing arm with 6.0 inches of travel, while the two rearmost wheels have a swing arm with a scissor stabilizer and 7.5 inches of travel. The design provides the four rearmost wheels with exceptional range which enables the Sportsman 6x6 to retain traction where other utility vehicles would get hung up. The MacPherson strut front suspension provides smooth handling with 6.7 inches of travel. The Sportsman 6x6 has 5.5 inches of ground clearance.

Sportsman 6x6A liquid-cooled Polaris 500 4-stroke, carbureted, single-cylinder engine powers the Sportsman 6x6. A Polaris Variable Transmission (PVT) delivers top performance from the 500 power plant. The PVT continually senses engine speed and vehicle torque load and provides the proper amount of power to the four drive wheels.

To carry gear, the Sportsman 6x6 has a new super-tough composite front cargo box and durable, molded rear cargo box. The rear box has a tailgate that opens wide and a gas-assisted mechanism that makes it easy to raise the box and dump loads. Cargo and towing capacities are designed to suit the heavy loads.

The Sportsman 6X6 delivers:

  • 75 lbs. of front cargo box capacity;
  • 800 lbs. of cargo box capacity;
  • 1,500 lbs. of towing capacity;
  • single-lever, all-wheel disc brakes with a hydraulic auxiliary rear-wheel foot brake.

Sportsman 6x6 instrumentation includes:

  • a speedometer/odometer with trip meter and hour meter;
  • high-beam indicator;
  • gear indicator for Reverse, Hi, Lo and Neutral;
  • high-temperature and low-battery warning lights.

The Sportsman 6x6 is available in Sportsman Green.
