Input On Kawasaki Teryx

I know that this question has been asked here somewhere, so forgive me.


In a few months, when I get my bonus, I will be buying a sidexside. I am doing homework and shopping a little. Last week I went to a local dealer to look at Rhinos and stumbled on the Teryx. I was very impressed with the feal when I drove it. I dont know anyone personally that has one so I found the forum.

Anyway, I am very open to all input. I have looked at the Polaris XP, the Rhino and the Teryx. I would love everyone's input on all 3. Thanks for your help.


Background. I have a wife and 2 kids and the machine will be used for cruising trails in the mountains. Probably no dunes.

Thanks!

I myself have (like Sidexside customs) have 2 side x sides. I have a 2007 Rhino 660 and a 2009 Teryx Monster. I can honestly say, "I have loved my Rhino"!!!!!! However, I found a new love when I drove the Teryx. The power difference was incredible. Now don't get me wrong I like both of them and there are things on the Rhino I like better, but If I had to buy another one right now it would be the Teryx. Teryx is more comfortable also!!!!!!

Good Luck on your decision!!!!!!!

Well said...

I like the room of the Teyrx as opposed to the Rhino, but now my Rhino will be transformed to 2 seat er soon.

UTV Guide - UTV Model Comparison

My father in law bought an 08 Rhino, 2 months later I purchased the 08 Teryx... Now he wishes he would've bought a Teryx instead. Either way, they are both excellent machines and you won't be disappointed.

hello! if you can, find someone with a rhino and then the teryx. go for rides and if they let you, drive them both. like everyone else has said, both are good machines and both have their strong and weak points. if you live near roosevelt let me know and you can cruise the teryx around if you want.

Thanks for all of your input. I actually come through Vernal or Roosevelt about once per month for business. I live in Herriman.
I am really leaning towards the Teryx. Have any of you ran into the issue of not being able to open the hood easily? That seems to be the only draw back in my little world. When I test drove the Teryx, it felt a lot more stable than the Rhino. Rhino's are a proven commodity though. I cant wait to have a toy!
Any opinions on the Polaris Rangers? Are they too wide for trails in Utah?

The hood issue is reall a moot point, not much under there you need to get to. I thought the same thing before I got one but after it really is not big deal.

I have had both a 08 and 09 Teryx and I like the 09 Teryx the best. If I had to pick one UTV right now it would be the 09 Teryx.

I personally would pass on any Polaris vehicle due to unreliability but this is a personal preference. Just like I don't drive Ford's.

This comes from a guy who races a 700 Rhino in cross country too.

Todd deals with a lot of SxS's, dynos them and tests all kinds of stuff on them, I would believe what he says 100%, he is a no BS guy.

Only time I took off the hood is to install Power Steering, a horn, fuel gauge and a GPS lighter plugin receptacle that is always hot even with the key off.

Myself, I love the Teryx enough to have 2. Wife loves hers. I have never owned any other sXs, but I have spent enough money on my 2 Teryx's to have 3 stock or probably 4. I have driven the Rhino and the new Honda whatever it is at my dealership and preferred the Teryx.
