Polaris has just announced three new 2023 Sportsman models, the High Lifter, Ride Command, and Utility HD editions. The most exciting of these is the return of the High Lifter edition, a mud-ready version of the Sportsman that was nowhere to be found on Polaris’ 2023 models when they were announced.
The fan-favorite Sportsman High Lifter edition will be available for the Sportsman 850 and the Sportsman XP 1000. The new High Lifters have been “engineered for mud performance” and include high-mount air and clutch cooling intakes, 30-inch Outlaw 2 tires on 14-inch aluminum wheels, a 3,500-pound winch, and 13.5 inches of ground clearance. For mud enthusiasts, the Sportsman High Lifter edition is a must.
2023 Polaris Sportsman 850 High Lifter Edition MSRP: $12,199
2023 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 High Lifter Edition MSRP: $16,899
Next up is the 2023 Sportsman Ride Command edition, which will be available for the 570 and XP 1000 models. The Ride Command edition, like the name suggests, comes standard with Ride Command+, Polaris’ new navigation and vehicle monitoring system. You can also connect your vehicle to the Polaris app, which lets you see all of the information Ride Command+ gives you straight from your smartphone.
If Ride Command+ isn’t enough to convince you, it also comes with 27-inch Duro tires on 14-inch wheels, LED headlights, and an aluminum front bumper.

Last of the lineup is the 2023 Sportsman 570 Utility HD edition, which is fitted to be a worker first. It gets 1,350 pounds of towing capacity and can haul 270 pounds on its front and rear storage racks, a front trailer hitch to make moving trailers a breeze, and a rear power plug to easily power tools and equipment.
