National Guard Bureau Orders 800 Off-Road Vehicles

October 21, 2009

MINNEAPOLIS - The National Guard Bureau, the federal organization that oversees equipment purchases for the National Guard, will spend $2.4 million on the purchase of Polaris RANGER 800 CREW Side-by-Sides, according to Polaris Defense.

The purchase of the Side-by-Sides will support the critical role the Army National Guard has to conduct missions abroad and at home including disaster relief.

"The National Guard's state-side mission to protect the homeland and respond to disasters fits Polaris vehicles extremely well," said Mark McCormick, managing director of Polaris Defense. "Our all wheel drive, multi-passenger, off-road vehicles provide a cost-effective capability well-suited for the demands of the National Guard."

Polaris Defense won the contract in a full and open competition conducted by the National Guard Bureau. The 2010 RANGER 800 CREW features an exclusive adjustable Dual A-Arm front suspension in addition to its legendary smooth independent rear suspension. The new suspension allows for superior ground clearance for a vehicle of this type and  a great ride when carrying heavier loads and using accessories for work applications. The RANGER CREW also offers anti-kickback steering, high payload and towing, ease of attaching accessories and capability to carry six people.
