2024 Polaris Slingshot Roush: 203 HP Reimagined

Refreshed Three-Wheeler: New Sound System, Options Galore!

Polaris has unveiled its new packages for the 2024 Slingshot, which consist of up-to-date colors and an advanced sound system, alongside a plethora of fittings. It has been close to a year since the 2023 modifications were announced, as well as two since the 2022 model was brought forth. Generally speaking, these adjustments may not be earth-shaking, but sufficient to breathe life into the car for another twelve months. All things considered, there is no legitimate competition with this three-wheeler and Caterham’s ongoing presence confirms that the demand for such easy, lightweight vehicles remains prominent.

New hues to enter the scene in 2024 range from Radar Blue Fade, Gold Rush and Purple Lightning; what’s more, SL and SLR models hold exclusive access to those never-seen-before graphics packages. Extra Midnight Charcoal wheels with a potential machine accent upgrade are also obtainable with the SL.

The enterprise’s Stage 2 Audio Bundle has also immensely augmented in potency, now coming endowed with 200 watts powering totally renovated Rockford Fosgate loudspeakers and modulated tweeters that assist in strengthening the sound off the auto’s wind guard. This shall come as standard on SL and superior models and will be extended to S models containing the Ride Command off-road GPS system.

This year, the Roush Edition brings back for the 2024 model year with still 203 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torquage produced by its 2.0-litre four-cylinder ProStar motor. First arriving in February 2023, this version promises plenty of performance despite its fairly modest engine specifications.

Polaris is spreading its wings by extending its collection with the inclusion of the Excursion Top canvas covering, outfitted in black, grey and red insignias representing Slingshot. Additionally, a back upper panel has been integrated to this roof, resulting in a decrease of noise from the street as well as buffeting generated from the wind. The catalogue of over 75 changes being made for 2021 also encompasses rear mudguards, a vented race bonnet, a modernized grille and much more.

The price ranges for Polaris Slingshot, as outlined on the configurator, begin at $21,999 for a base S edition available solely in Moonlight White. The SL version is accessible from $28,149 boasting hues of Ocean Gray, Volt Orange, Midnight Blue, and Miami Blue Pearl. Lastly, the SLR starts at $31,149 with colors such as Moonlight Shadow, Slingshot Red Pearl, or Seaglass Haze. As well, the AutoDrive transmission can be included for an additional fee of $1,850.

Move up to the R model, ranging in price from an MSRP of $34,799 with the manual increasing to $36,949 if you choose the automatic. Paint options include Phantom Gray, Radar Blue Fade, Army Green Flash, Gold Rush, and Purple Lightning. At the top end of the range is the Roush edition, obtainable only as Racetrack Red, starting at $38,149 with the manual and rising to $40,299 for the automatic version.

The Polaris makes for an undeniably impressive sight and garners attention wherever it is taken, however we opine that the Miata provides a greater return in terms of value if we put aside the standard variant.
