Things to Know About ATVs

Before we start, let’s go over some key terms:

  • Dry weight: The dry weight of a vehicle is its initial weight before any add-ons, fluid, people, etc. are added to the vehicle. All of the vehicle weights provided in this article are dry weights. 
  • Box Capacity: This is the total amount of weight that the vehicle’s cargo box can carry. This weight is included in the payload capacity. 
  • Payload Capacity: This is the total amount of weight that the vehicle can carry, including all passengers and cargo. 
  • ATV: An ATV, or an all-terrain vehicle, is an off-road vehicle meant for a single passenger. ATVs are also referred to as “quads” or “four-wheelers.”
  • UTV: A UTV, or a utility task vehicle, allows two (or four, depending on the model) riders to ride side-by-side in the vehicle. UTVs are also referred to as “side-by-side” or “SxS” vehicles. All Polaris RZR models discussed in this post are UTVs. 

ATV or UTV: Which is Heavier?

If you are reading this, you are probably interested in purchasing an off-road vehicle. As you read above, there are two major types of off-road vehicles, ATVs and UTVs. Which type of vehicle you should choose depends on what you plan to do with it. 

Out of the two, ATVs tend to be less expensive, smaller, and better for solo trips. The heaviest ATVs still weigh under 1,000 pounds, with most average ATVs weighing in around 500 pounds. In contrast, the lightest UTVs are just under 1,000 pounds. UTVs are for riders who want to traverse rugged terrain, ride with others, or haul heavier cargo.
