10 Best Sportsman’s All-Terrain Vehicles

January 23, 2015 Buying Guides By

Unless you happen to be Hercules, son of Zeus, and you can single-handedly capture and carry Cerberus the hellhound with your own two hands, you likely don’t have the strength or endurance to cover miles of dirt, sand, mud, gravel and rocky terrain without the assistance of a rough-and-ready all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) or side-by-side utility vehicle (UTV). Designed for sportsmen, farmers, ranchers and outdoor off-road and trail lovers, these vehicles have grown in technology, capability, performance and popularity since their introduction in the 1970s.

ATVs and UTVs not only offer excellent off-road abilities, they also enable their riders/drivers to carry equipment and game for miles on end in locations with narrow access points that would restrict larger vehicles. What’s more, the ATVs/UTVs of today aren’t the bare-bones models of a decade back when underpowered engines, poor suspension and chunky tires defined the genre. These days, rugged quads make the most of available technology; these mudslingers, rock-crawlers and equipment haulers are more sophisticated and versatile for your outdoor adventures.
