Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

I just purchased a 19 turbo last weekend I upgraded from my 800s I didnít notice any issues with being hot in the cab probably because I donít have any glass on it yet.Amazon will be here everyday this week, But the machine is insanely fast!

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

i bought a 19 xp4 1000 end of feb rode it for a little over 300 miles in two months its was a very nice machine, power was good and i liked it alot, then had an accident at the beginning of may and wrecked it and from that i was able to upgrade to a turbo and what can i say its absolutely awesome and a no brainer for me being only $1800 difference from the 1000. my opinion motor is quieter and smoother and of course the power is way better plus the drive train upgrades

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

Just adding my 2 cents. I have owned an 800S, a 900XP and now a 1000XP. I have loved them all. One thing I won't give up is the Ride Command screen. That is my favorite part. I feel as tho the 1000XP has plenty of power for my needs. I am pretty agressive and we have 2 turbos in our crew that I have no trouble keeping up with.

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

OP, what temperature do you plan on riding your RZR in? If most of your riding will be in 90+ weather, get the XP 1000. We have a RZR 800 S and everywhere we went, we were cold and our friends who have an XP 1000 were always hot. We could not figure out why.

Then we got an XP4 Turbo. This thing is twice as hot in the cab as our friend's XP 1000. If we are in temperatures over 90 degrees and the sun is shining, it's deathly hot! That is my biggest complaint about this buggy, and it's a serious one. It's a real bummer that we really can't ride it through the 3 hottest months of the summer. It gets so hot that all the riders get sick! Polaris really screwed up here in my opinion! It's a real problem. We have the steel vacuum insulated cups and when we take them out of the cup holders, they are so hot we can't hold onto them! I really don't understand how the plastic console and floor doesn't melt. And we have the half windshield, not a full one.

In the spring, fall and winter, it will be fine. But for now, it sits in the garage...

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

Well, I just bought two XP turbos, a 2 and 4 seater, and after reading all these comments, sounds like I made the right choice. Almost a no brainer with 2500.00 rebates on the 2019 turbo's now. Problem is now I am obsessed with what options to add, and I am new to this. Will be trail riding in CO, but stoked to go explore the wilds. If there are any must have options, let me know.

Winch is a must in my book. The rest are more comfort things.

I plan to ride year round, and if I get a XPT I was planning on getting a flip up windshield, and maybe look into some extra heat shielding possibly

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

I went from an 18 XP1K ride command to a 19 Turbo S. In the XP1k I installed the wolfsnout cab cooler kit and it made a world of difference. When I got the Turbo S home I installed the same kit plus the rear heatshield that they offer. I ride my Turbo S all year long and I live in Tucson AZ where its hot as hell in the summer. The wolfsnout cab cooler kit it is the only way to go if you ride in hot areas.

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

Purchased XP1000 in 2016. Mostly desert riding in AZ And What Utah has to offer when I can. Put 7000 miles on it. and found myself wanting more power often when the terrain allowed me to.. send it! Purchased 2019 XPT. And I can safely say I have not looked for more power once. Itís been an adjustment to get used to all the power it has.

Worse part is I put well over 10K in my 2016. Seats, suspension. Cage. Clutching etc... and you never get that back when selling. Especially with 7K miles on it. Itís very expensive to upgrade. Especially once you start making it your own

Do you pay for the ride command subscription or just utilize the touch screen as is?

We didn't pay for anything. i just like the ability to track my rides and have a larger screen that I can actually see without my readers! :-)

ah crap now you’re giving me something to chew on... I wrote it off because I thought you had to subscribe to something for that. I really want it but what’s crappy is the ride command machine still more expensive than a XPT 🤔

Re: 1000 XP or XP Turbo

I have both a 16 Xp and 17 Xpt. Both are good but personally I favor the 16 Xp for Mountain trails because of better engine breaking and lack of front sway bar, cons are clutch tower wear and those dang square pucks on the secondary. The 17 xpt is much better suited for high speed racing or sand dunes in my book as it can get you out of a bad situation by simply touching the go pedal.
Must have options for any type of driving is a heavy winch and shock therapy springs expensive but well worth it.
