Something For Just About Everyone.
Any mechanic, woodworker, tradesman or craftsman knows that the right tool makes the job a whole lot easier. And having the right tool means having a choice. We’ve all seen someone try to drive a screw with a butter knife, or pound a nail with a shoe heel. The results are never pretty.
Honda’s FourTrax Rancher line are premium tools for the jobs you need to do, whether that’s on the farm, the jobsite, hunting, fishing, exploring... or on the ranch. It’s easy for you to choose the right mix of features—just like reaching for that right tool.
Every Rancher starts with the same proven Honda engine, the heart of any ATV. A 420cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder design with fuel injection, it’s engineered for the kind of wide, low-revving power an ATV rider wants. And it offers something no other ATV can: Honda’s legendary reliability and efficiency.
After that, the mix-and-match of features is up to you. We have models with independent rear suspension (IRS) for excellent handling and a superior ride. We also have swingarm/solid-axle models suited to riders who tow a lot, or who want a solid axle’s simplicity of design. Standard manual ATV transmission, our exclusive Electric Shift Program, or Honda’s revolutionary Automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) are all available, as is Electric Power Steering and your choice between two- and four-wheel drive.
Choosing a Rancher is a no-brainer. Your only real challenge is choosing the right Rancher. And shouldn’t all life’s challenges be that easy?
Features may include:
Electric Power Steering
Honda's Electric Power Steering (available on several of our four-wheel-drive models) features torque sensors that measure how much force you're applying and then tailors how much extra assistance you need. Our specially engineered mounting system increases stiffness and enhances handling. It helps make your life way easier, especially in challenging terrains.
Honda Automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission
Strong internals, fast shifts, excellent control, true compression-braking capability in steep terrain and an automatic program that upshifts and downshifts while you concentrate on riding—the Honda automatic dual-clutch transmission has it all. It’s one of the best choices you can make when choosing your transmission.
IRS or Swingarm?
We have both. Our 2017 Rancher models offer Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) for a smoother ride and increased traction over uneven terrain. Alternately, the swingarm models offer great capability when tackling tough chores.
Important Safety Information: Recommended for riders 16 years of age and older. Honda recommends that all ATV riders take a training course and read their owner's manual thoroughly.
