April 2018 Powersport News

Minneapolis – Polaris has signed on exclusively with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Military AutoSource to be the first and only off-road vehicle manufacturer to offer military members privileged pricing on vehicles purchased on overseas U.S. military bases. Orders of Polaris vehicles are sent to the military member’s U.S. Polaris dealer of choice.

“We are thrilled to be adding Polaris to the family of brands available through Military AutoSource,” said Ken Engberg, senior vice president of marketing, Military AutoSource. “Polaris and their incredible products exemplify the passion, personal freedom and leadership that truly reflects our men and women in uniform. As always, Military AutoSource stands ready to enable our service members to make the most of their well-deserved downtime in pursuit of their own personal adventures on, and now off-road!”
