As the title states, shopping for a new or used Utility Vehicle or sidebyside is a challenge to say the least.

Several years ago the choices were limited and therefore quite a bit easier. But powersports fans are a demanding breed & rightfully so. You want a machine that will do the job at hand, and not break down half way through the day. The manufacturers listened to the customer base, which has grown every year since 2005.

Many of the people who bought Honda 3 wheelers, ended up buying a quad or four-wheeler. Now, many of those quad customers are heading back into the powersports dealer to buy a sidebyside. The sidebysides are more capable then ever, with more torque, horsepower, ground clearance and seating capacity.

Once you have determined that buying the latest offroad craze is for you, there is a ton of research that must be done.

DYODD, do your own due dilegence.

Research, investigate, ask questions, visit dealerships in your local area, and ask around on the multitude of 4x4 & UTV Forums.

There are a ton of choices in today's sidebyside marketplace but the big players are Polaris, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Can-Am and Arctic Cat. John Deere is also a major player in the UTV market, but for much of recent history there demographics have been biased to the agricultural side. Recently John Deere has introduced the Gator RSX 850i, which was built to compete with the more aggressive and powerful sidebysides from Polaris & Can-Am, namely the Polaris RZR XP 900 & Can-Am Commander.

Obviously price will play a role in which utility vehicle is right for you. Determine a reasonable budget, but keep in mind many of the newer more powerful sidebysides cost as much as a new car!

Another factor to keep in mind is whether you are going to purchase sidebyside accessories or aftermarket parts for your UTV. You can add gun racks, lift kits, larger wheels, high performance exhaust, hard windhsields, led lighting and 100's of other atv parts.

The most popular brands today seem to be Polaris & Can-Am based on recent market surveys.
