Minneapolis – For the past two decades, Polaris RANGER vehicles have become reliable workhorses for Americans doing a variety of jobs in some of the most unforgiving conditions imaginable.

In 1998 Polaris revolutionized the side-by-side category by debuting the RANGER 6x6 vehicle. Since then, Polaris has continuously set the standard for utility side-by-side vehicles with its industry-leading capabilities and celebrated rolling the one-millionth RANGER off the assembly line in Huntsville, AL, in 2017.

To recognize its 20th anniversary and Polaris’ position as the No.1-selling utility side-by-side, Polaris RANGER will celebrate the stories of the owners who made this milestone possible. Polaris is calling upon owners to submit stories about their hardworking RANGER for a chance to win one of three ultimate RANGER experiences.

“While Polaris has been a player in the powersports market for nearly 65 years, we first cut our teeth in the side-by-side category with the groundbreaking introduction of RANGER two decades ago,” Kyle Duea, vice president Off-Road Marketing, Polaris, said. “Since then, we’ve grown to define and set the standard for every category in the side-by-side market, with RANGER continuing to lead the utility side-by-side category year after year.”

To support the 20th anniversary of RANGER, Polaris has teamed up with champion tie-down roper Tyson Durfey, professional angler David Dudley and TV hosts and professional hunters Lee and Tiffany Lakosky to create the ultimate RANGER experiences. Throughout the month of May, owners are encouraged to submit a video or 300 word-max story about their RANGER and what it has helped them achieve for a chance to win an all-expense paid ultimate rodeo, fishing or hunting adventure hosted by these professionals for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“We are celebrating two decades of innovation and best-in-class vehicles thanks to our devoted customers that continue to make RANGER a part of their daily lives,” Duea continued. “The 20th anniversary of RANGER is a celebration of our customers and Polaris’ continued commitment to deliver the hardest working, smoothest riding vehicles that help owners get any job done, from farming to hunting. We are excited to honor them and hear their stories.”

“Creating the RANGER was a team effort. Innovation and breaking new ground does not happen without the people on the team—contributing, listening and pushing,” said Mitchell Johnson, son of David Johnson, one of the founders of Polaris. “The culture at Polaris is one full of passion and an overwhelming desire to help people create lasting memories and experiences with our products. We are looking forward to hearing our customers’ stories and learning about how their machine helped them push the envelope or finish an epic project.”
