Lightweight and agile, this full-sized Ranger will conquer all but the most taxing jobs with change left over. Its low cost and stripped-down options make it the perfect choice for individuals needing to get the most out of their equipment budget. The 570 is available in three- or six-seat Crew variations, with a couple of color options for 2022.
No power steering option, tiny 12-inch wheels, and outdated looks hold this version of the Ranger 570 back in time.
A solid UTV that still drives well. If you don’t need the latest and greatest, this is a good choice. A smooth powertrain, semi-sporty handling, and tons of usable bed space make the Ranger 570 Full-Size worth purchasing.
Polaris’ Ranger 570 Full-Size is an untouched relic in the Ranger lineup for 2022. It is the only single-cylinder model available on the full-size frame architecture, and it also rides on the oldest chassis in that same group. This means that although it makes the least horsepower of the full-size Rangers, it is also the lightest.
At a claimed 1,071 pounds dry, the three-seat Ranger 570 is nearly 400 pounds lighter than the base Ranger 1000. It is also lighter than most of the RZR lineup, as well as the new SP 570, Polaris’ new midsize Ranger. This lack of mass means the 44 hp cranked out of the silky-smooth 570 single engine feels extra efficient, which is fun for work or play. The downside is that it lacks many of the generational improvements in strength, comfort, and durability that you get on the more upscale models.

Powertrain: Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The 570 was introduced back in 2014. It replaced the Ranger 500, though Polaris still produces a version of that car. With dual overhead cams, a very oversquare bore/stroke ratio, and electronic fuel injection, this single-cylinder engine is lively and smooth. It delivers power with amazing traction, and the Ranger has enough suspension to make use of the 570′s strengths on the trail.
While not nearly as sporty as the all-new 570 SP midsize, the Ranger 570 is no slouch. Manual steering and a slow rack ratio means quick driving requires a lot of wheel work.
The Ranger 570′s brakes are adequate for its weight, but heavy loads tax them under hard use.
Ergonomics: Comfort and Utility
With a three-person bench layout, the Ranger 570 is more function than form. The padding is soft, but it does not offer much support for spirited driving. The Ranger’s antiquated door net system is likely going to cause a little frustration for the owners who don’t remove it entirely. The vehicle’s controls are all in the right places, and ingress/egress are easy despite the net being in the way. The tilt steering is a nice touch, and the assisted dump bed makes working on the Ranger a breeze, as the entire engine is accessible by simply tilting the bed back.
Here is where this Ranger 570 hits its stride. With an 800-pound capacity in the dump box and a maximum tow rating of 1,500 pounds from its 2-inch hitch receiver, this Ranger can work. The bed is a whopping 54 inches wide and more than 3 feet long, giving you ample cargo space to haul around your gear. There is also a ton of in-cab storage space, though not much of it is easily organized.
The Ranger 570 has no electronic bells and whistles, but it does come standard with Polaris’ trademark multifunction analog/digital gauge.
