Is there any difference between a 2018, 2019, and 2020 Ranger XP 1000 base model?

Specs appear to be the same when comparing online. Only thing I can visibly see is the steering wheel looks different on the 2020.

Looking to buy a lightly used machine in the 2018-2020 range and just curious if there's any pro's or con's between those model years or if they're identical.

Thanks,
Pete

All 2020 XP1000s should have geared reverse. It may even be 2019s. I think early 2019s did not so I can’t say all, but @Toxic-21 can confirm.

Interesting. I thought I read that was only for higher trim level machines. Would be nice to know. Not sure if that’s a big deal or not for me.

I would want the geared reverse over the chain as it’s more reliable.

Trying to do some research and found this - What To Expect From The 2020 Polaris Ranger Lineup

The 2020 Ranger Vs. The 2021 Ranger
When you compare the 2020 Polaris Ranger with the 2021 Polaris Ranger, a few key differences will become easy to see. You’ll notice that the 2021 edition of the Polaris Ranger has a beefier frame and front differential. Additionally, Polaris also enhanced the secondary clutch on their 2021 Ranger editions, and ditched those garbage one-way bearings in the primary clutch. In this way, the updated two-way clutch bearings now eliminate hard shifting issues, giving riders a silky smooth shifting action!


Does that sound right?

I've got a dilemma that I found a used 18' Ranger with all the accessories on it, loaded 700 miles. And a 21' Ranger, with just a roof and windshield, 160 miles - for the same price.

Hmm

old post, what did you end up getting?

I had a similar situation between a 2020 and a 2021. I ended up getting the 2020 loaded with accessories.
