Before they were known as one America’s leading names in ATVs and motorcycles, Polaris Industries was once a manufacturer of farm equipment and one of the country’s original snowmobile pioneers. Originally created in 1954 out of a desire for a vehicle that could traverse through the extreme snow of the midwest, Polaris found immediate success in the new snowmobile market. However, success was short-lived as Polaris were soon overtaken by the competition and the company began a 30+ year downward spiral that lasted into the early 1980s. By 1985, ATVs were becoming the next big thing in powersports vehicles and it was being dominated by the Japanese. Polaris saw an opportunity to enter the market as an American manufacturer and introduced the 4-wheel Trail Boss all-terrain vehicles. The Trail Boss stood out among the competition with a multitude of never-before-seen features on an ATV, due largely in part to Polaris’ snowmobile innovations making their way into the designs of their new ATV lines. Polaris was able to capture 25% of the ATV market share in the early 1990s and was able to maintain their ascent by continuously introducing new technology into their ATVs. The Big Boss 4X6, Trail Boss 350, Polaris Magnum 425, and Sportsman ATVs were important, groundbreaking machines in the 1990s and these sales successes, along with the launch of the in-demand extreme-duty Ranger RZR and subsequent RZR series, helped propel Polaris Industries back into prosperity and back in the spotlight as the biggest domestic ATV brand in North America.
