We have seen a few leaked Polaris Slingshot pictures in recent weeks, but these were based on renders or simple sketches. We now know the design of this small, yet fast, fun vehicle along with a few other important details. The company thought that they were up for a challenge, and so has now entered the three-wheeled auto market.
Polaris Slingshot engine — This was one of the most talked about topics about this vehicle because there were so many rumors as to what power unit would be included in the Slingshot, and now those rumors have finally been put to rest. The engine of choice is a 2.4-liter Ecotech that produces 173 horsepower, which is a huge amount when you consider the vehicles weighs just 1743 lbs. We do not have 0-60 mph details or a top speed, but we do hope this will be shared with us in the coming days.
As for transmission, there are only five gears, although anymore would become an issue seeing as though you will be going through them very quickly. The specs for this three-wheeled vehicle truly are impressive, which you can see for yourself by visiting the official Polaris website.
Polaris Slingshot price per model — There are two models in all, the Base model and the SL. The former starts at $19,999 and the latter $23,999, and both can be customized to meet with your needs.
There are several custom options from its color, wheels, wind protection, electronics and so much more.
For greater insight we have included a Polaris Slingshot review video below that looks at various aspects of the vehicle, along with the positives and negatives. We can tell you that the Slingshot is very affordable and fun to drive, although it does require a helmet, even if it is a car and not a motorcycle.
