Standard Features

Hardest Working
 Midsize Chassis  
    Our midsize chassis is built for work, even though it’s engineered smaller than our XP. The RANGER® 500 gets the toughest jobs done, while being easier to maneuver, park and store inside barns and sheds, fit on a trailer or haul in the bed of many trucks.  
 Midsize Value  
    Priced thousands less than full-size models yet with many of the same features, a mid-size RANGER® is an incredible value and is still hardest working, smoothest riding.  
 On-Demand True All Wheel Drive with Versatrac Turf Mode  
    True AWD keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don’t. When in 2WD, the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns that won’t tear up your grass.  
 Impressive Ground Clearance and Towing  
    A full 10 inches of ground clearance keeps the ride smooth, clearing obstacles and reducing high-centering on rough terrain. A 1,250 lb. towing capacity lets you tow trailers and wheeled equipment with ease.  
 Big Time Towing  
    A 1,250 lbs. towing capacity lets you tow trailers and wheeled equipment with ease.  
 500 EFI  
    A proven 500 Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) Single Cylinder 32 hp engine delivers big power in a midsize chassis.  
 Dump Box with Lock & Ride® Cargo System  
    Rear dump box has gas-assist dumping operation and features exclusive Lock & Ride® cargo system that accommodates many hard-working accessories that can go on and off in seconds.  
Smoothest Riding
 Best-in-Class Ergonomics  
    Cab ergonomics deliver outstanding driver and passenger comfort, with extra legroom and easy cab slide-through design so two adults can get in and out quickly.  
 Industry-Leading Front and Independent Rear Suspension  
    Our legendary smooth Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) has 9 inches of travel and five-point adjustable preload so you can stiffen the suspension for heavy loads. The MacPherson Strut independent front suspension has a long 8 inches of travel.  
 Speedkey® Accessory  
    An industry exclusive. A black ignition key maximizes engine power and top speed, while a yellow key lowers the top speed to 23 mph.  
 Speedometer and an Instrument Cluster with Electronic Fuel Gauge  
    The 500 EFI power plant has standard equipment that includes a new speedometer and an instrument cluster with an electronic fuel gauge.  
 Predictable Handling  
    The mid-size chassis and lighter overall vehicle weight deliver easier handling and maneuvering on turf, trails and rough terrain.
