  • POWERFUL 44 HORSEPOWER PROSTAR® ENGINE: With 44 Horsepower, Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) and Dual Overhead Cams with 4 valves per cylinder, the 570 starts flawlessly and runs smoothly in varied temperature and altitude.

  • HIGH PERFORMANCE CLOSE RATIO ON-DEMAND ALL WHEEL DRIVE (AWD): The high-performance close ratio AWD system is the fastest engaging AWD system available. The instant you need more traction the system engages all four tires to give you forward traction while working with the Electronic Power Steering system for precision handling. The system automaticlly reverts back to 2WD when you're back on solid ground.
  • ENGINE BRAKING SYSTEM (EBS) WITH ACTIVE DESCENT CONTROL (ADC): Engine Braking System (EBS) and Active Descent Control (ADC) work together to provide four wheel braking for optimum control and smooth, even deceleration during descents
  • HARD WORKING 270 LBS. COMBINED RACK CAPACITY: Carry more with a combined front and rear rack capacity of 280 lbs (180 lbs. Rear, 90 lbs. Front capacity). Sportsman 570 features flat racks and integrated steel tie downs to easily tie down and secure cargo.
  • MASSIVE 1,500 LBS. TOWING CAPACITY: Class leading 1,500 lbs. towing capacity with an integrated 1.25" hitch.
