The engine-management system is
upgraded with knock detection, boost
control and a high-flow return-style
fuel system. The cooling system is
beefed up with dual radiators and a
high-flow fan, and the liquid-charge air
cooler has a high-flow electric pump.
Also, the CVT has a new targeted-clutch air-cooling system to reduce
clutch and belt temperatures, and the
driveline shafts are upgraded to deal
with the extra power and torque. The
charging system is bumped to a 660-
watt output as well, and the battery
has 575 cold-cranking amps and 44
amp-hours capacity. The Turbo is

Front travel is 16 inches on both XPs and width is 64 inches, but the
XP Turbo has a front torsion bar and Fox 2. 5 IBP shocks with revised
valving zones for 2016, while the 1000 has 2.0 WER piggybacks.
Pure Polaris accessory high-clearance front A-arms on our Turbo don’t
change travel or steering geometry, and we used identical Pure Polaris

became the 2016 RZR XP Turbo EPS
platform, as the Turbo EPS has the
same 2. 5 front and 3.0 rear Fox Internal
ByPass (IBP) shocks as the Fox Edition.
Front and rear torsion bars fight body
roll and weight transfer generated by
such hard acceleration and braking
forces. The rear sway bar is updated
to improve ride quality, and the
re-tuned IBP shocks have five zones of
progressive damping to fight bottoming
and three rebound zones to reduce
bucking. Although the Turbo EPS
doesn’t have the Fox Edition’s Polaris
IDD gauge package, it has new seat-
belt guides to prevent chafed necks
and a more upright seating position.
As for the RZR XP 1000 EPS, it
got the third CVT cooling duct for
2015 and the more upright seating
position, adjustable seat-belt sliders
and new color choices for 2016. The
110-horsepower XP1K is 116 pounds
lighter than the 144-horsepower XP
Turbo, but it carries 12. 54 pounds per
horsepower, while the Turbo has 10. 38
pounds per horsepower.
