Inspired by the Military
  • Designed for Today's Warfighter: 1st developed for the U.S. military, TERRAINARMOR™ tires give mobility to today’s operator that has been threatened by enemy ballistics, treacherous terrain, and other mission crippling obstacles.
  • Tested for Combat: TERRAINARMOR™ tires have been rigorously tested for military situations. Tests include: Full combat loads; .50 caliber ballistic damage; M4 ballistic damage; AK47 ballistic damage; Railroad spike penetration
  • Proven Around the Globe: With hundreds of MV850s fighting alongside today’s warfighters, the hardest working militarized ATV on the planet passes its proven durability, off-road capability, and never-quit attitude to its civilian counterpart, the WV850 with TERRAINARMOR™.
Hardest Working
  • Revolutionary TerrainArmor™ Tire Technology: Beyond having no flats, consumers will appreciate the other benefits TerrainArmor™ tires offer including: a better center-of-gravity, improved cornering due to less pushing, and a tread pattern and compound that was developed specifically for the hard working characteristics of the WV850.
  • Steel Racks Built for Work: Developed for the military and now offered as the ideal work solution, the powder coated steel 200-lb. front and 400-lb. rear racks are up to the carrying task. Durable steel D-rings make securing loads a cinch.
  • Impressive 77 hp and Military-Grade Transmission: A powerful 77 hp engine provides impressive torque and pulling power. The engine is mated to a fully automatic single-speed, military-grade transmission featuring a single forward and reverse gear for ease of operation.
  • Increased Cooling and Fuel Capacity: To meet the demands of long work days, the WV850 features a larger radiator with increased cooling capability and an unmatched 11.75 gal/44.48 liter total fuel capacity.
  • Pull or Tow with Confidence: A work vehicle isn’t complete without a standard 2-in receiver hitch that can tow 1,500 lbs/680 kgs and a premium 3,000 lb Warn winch for confidence in extreme settings.
  • AWD and Active Descent Control: Handle the rugged demands of your work site or hunt with Polaris AWD. The AWD engages all four wheels when your machine needs more forward traction and reverts back to two wheels when you don’t. Monitor your downhill braking with EBS and Active Descent Control for optimum control and smooth, even deceleration (less than 15 mph).
Smoothest Riding
  • Standard Electronic Power Steering: Standard Electronic Power Steering reduces fatigue and terrain feedback and also increases ease of operation while carrying a load on the robust steel racks.
  • Upgraded Shock Package: An upgraded shock package offers superior handling under heavy load or while navigating rugged landscape.
