The RANGER XD 1500 NorthStar Edition is engineered to tackle the toughest jobs with industry-leading capability.

Power Your Productivity

Powered by a three cylinder ProStar 1500cc engine, pumping out an industry-leading 110 horsepower and 105 lb.-ft of torque for effortless hauling and towing and confidence in tough terrain.

Tow Heavy Payloads

Maximize your productivity with enhanced capability. From round bales to horse trailers, XD 1500 NorthStar is engineered to work with an astounding 3,500 lb. towing capacity.

Makes Hard Work Easier

Make fewer trips and haul heavier loads with the new cargo box. Featuring the industry’s only 1,500 lb. cargo box capacity and a 50% larger cargo box volume than full-size UTVs.

Overcome Rough Terrain

Get off the beaten path with an industry-leading 15 inches of ground clearance to overcome large obstacles and tough terrain with confidence.

Sure-Footed Traction

Get confident ride and handling with 30" Kenda Crosstrail tires to effortlessly crawl over rocks, ruts, and rough terrain, plus an 8-ply rating for added durability.


Stay comfortable in harsh weather conditions with heat, air conditioning and a fully enclosed cab. We've redesigned the climate-controlled cab with better sealing to prevent dust and water intrusion while locking in your preferred temperature.

Complete Climate Control

The upgraded heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system offers 5 different air flow settings and a recirculation setting to draw air from inside the cab instead of outside for faster, more efficient heating and cooling.


RIDE COMMAND technology integrated into a waterproof, glove-compatible, 7" Display gives you access to a backup camera, available heated seats, and the most advanced GPS and trail network in the industry. Elevate your ride, stay on course, and tackle whatever the day brings.


Having your machine equipped with RIDE COMMAND+ takes all guesswork out of owning it. Check your vehicle’s health, location and maintenance schedule all from the palm of your hand.

Added Lighting

A rear work light offers added lighting over the cargo box for early morning or late night tasks. On the inside, an overhead switch panel provides quick and convenient access for additional lighting or accessory add-ons.

Immersive Sound System

Standard with the Ultimate trim, integrated JBL audio speakers deliver precise audio clarity and premium sound. Run AM/FM radio or connect to Bluetooth via the RIDE COMMAND infotainment system.

Cargo Box Power

Enjoy convenient 12V cargo box power to run accessories or sprayers.


Engineered to be stronger and more durable in nearly every way, featuring longer service intervals, a high-strength, heavy-duty steel chassis, and the industry-exclusive STEELDRIVE transmission.

STEELDRIVE Transmission

The industry-exclusive STEELDRIVE transmission features a 100% steel-constructed belt that delivers smooth, precise operation and a fully sealed, liquid-cooled design for unmatched durability.

Maximum Durability And Strength

The 100% steel-constructed belt is designed to withstand heavy loads and requires little maintenance compared to the rubber-belt design commonly found in other UTVs. Plus, it's fully sealed and liquid cooled for maximum durability and longevity.

Smooth, Precise Control

STEELDRIVE is electronically controlled to deliver outstanding drivability benefits. Enjoy smooth, predictable throttle engagement and precise low speed control when backing up to trailers, navigating rough terrain, or spraying a fence line.

Effortless Shifting, Quiet Operation

Easily shift between drive, park and reverse gears with a consistent, predictable feel and reduced effort. The fully sealed design reduces operating noise for a quieter, more enjoyable ride.

Hill Assist & Descent Control

Have complete confidence on challenging terrain. For maximum control when driving uphill, Hill Assist engages the vehicle's transmission to prevent it from rolling backwards when letting off the accelerator and brakes. When navigating downhill, the transmission remains engaged to help control the descent.** 


Extreme duty doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on comfort. The RANGER XD 1500 NorthStar Edition comes equipped to maximize comfort and convenience with the most spacious and premium cab we’ve ever built, and rides like an absolute dream.

Industry's Most Spacious Cab

We’ve increased interior space with 2” more leg room than full-size UTVs, plus easier entry and exit for tasks like working fence lines. Adjustable seating and a telescopic steering wheel let you find the perfect fit for your height and riding preferences.

Premium Seating

New contoured seating has added bolstering for more comfort, while featuring a new center flip-down seat that transforms into an arm rest with added cupholders for more convenience.

Legendary Smooth Ride

Industry-leading 12” suspension travel, the ultra smooth engagement and quiet operation of the STEELDRIVE transmission, and chassis improvements deliver the smoothest ride of any RANGER we’ve ever built. A longer wheelbase delivers better stability in rough terrain for confident handling.

Drive Modes

Tailor throttle response with different drive modes. Comfort mode limits throttle response and engine braking, great for work scenarios. Standard mode delivers normal throttle response and engine braking for everyday riding. Sport maximizes throttle response for a sporty ride on the trails. Tow/Haul maximizes engine torque and limits speed for heavy payloads.
