Polaris Ranger XD 1500 STEELDRIVE Transmission

I'm really curious to see how this all-new transmission performs!


The industry-exclusive STEELDRIVE transmission features a 100% steel constructed belt that delivers smooth, precise operation and a fully-sealed, liquid-cooled design for unmatched durability.

The 100% steel constructed belt is designed to withstand heavy loads and requires little maintenance compared to the rubber belt design commonly found in other UTVs. Plus, it's fully sealed and liquid-cooled for maximum durability and longevity.

STEELDRIVE is electronically controlled to deliver outstanding drivability benefits. Enjoy smooth, predictable throttle engagement and precise low speed control when backing up to trailers, navigating rough terrain, or spraying a fence line.

Easily shift between drive, park, and reverse gears with a consistent, predictable feel and reduced effort. The fully-sealed design reduces operating noise for a quieter, more enjoyable ride.

Have complete confidence in challenging terrain. For maximum control when driving uphill, Hill Assist engages the transmission to prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards when letting off the accelerator and brakes. When navigating downhill, the transmission remains engaged to assist in controlling descent.
