Honda®’s Ranchers® are the best-selling all-terrain vehicles in America—and the world. What makes us the best? Because we’re always improving—for 2014. we’ve made big improvements in just about every area: performance; comfort; function and style.
We started with our powerful longitudinally mounted 420cc liquid-cooled engine; and took it one step further by improving its fuel efficiency. Then we wrapped that engine in a stronger; all-new double-cradle steel chassis. On top of that; we increased the suspension stroke front and rear for better ride comfort; improved handling; and increased maneuverability.
And of course only Honda® offers so many transmission choices: Choose from our semi-automatic foot-shift manual transmission; our Electric Shift Program (ESP) for push-button shifting; or our exclusive fully Automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).
In addition to those great features; the all-new 2014 Ranchers® feature a thicker; softer seat for increased comfort; and we optimized our Electric Power Steering (EPS) so you can get even more done.
We wrapped all of this Honda® technology in rugged new bodywork that not only looks good; but offers increased protection from the elements. They’re even available in two all-new color options: our exclusive Honda Phantom Camo® and Orange; in addition to Red and Olive.
With seven new models in the lineup; there’s a Rancher® with just the right combination of features for your needs and adventures!
The convenience of push-button shifting with the rugged design of a conventional ATV transmission—that’s what you get with Honda®’s exclusive Electric Shift Program (ESP). Just push one button to upshift and one button to downshift. It’s a big plus when you’re wearing heavy work boots or overshoes; or riding in mud or snow. An added benefit: you get genuine compression braking for better control when operating in steep terrain.
Easy to read and full of the information you want; in addition to the standard gear position indicator; speedometer; odometer; trip meter; and hour meter you now get readouts for fuel level; clock; water temperature; speed and Honda®’s “maintenance minder” system to help remind you when it’s time to have your ATV serviced.
More powerful alternator output means your Rancher® can power more accessories; like our Honda® Genuine winch or heated grips. Depending on the specific Rancher® model; output increases up to 21 percent; to a full 481 watts.
By using new; sealed bearings in the steering knuckles; we’ve increased durability. This is particularly important when riding through mud; in wet weather; or operating in snow.
Being able to count on crisp performance and starting under any conditions is a must for anyone who depends on their ATV. Thanks to Honda®'s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)—featuring a 34mm throttle body; 12-hole Denso injector; and a new oxygen sensor that allows the fuel mapping to instantaneously adjust to any riding condition —the Rancher® not only ensures trouble-free operation in the cold and at varying altitudes; it reduces emissions and enhances fuel economy.
