Typically snowmobile manufacturers evolve their snowmobile models from the top down, flowing premium features into the more basic models. This allows the sled maker to amortize and simplify the cost of manufacturing by dropping older chassis models and replacing them with the newer design. Of course, while offering the newer technology, the budget sleds must themselves reflect budgeting so they tend to get more basic pieces.
The new for 2011 Polaris 550 IQ LXT benefits from this model. It features the modern and proven stretch track IQ chassis, but retains the cost effective fan-cooled power plant and mid-level shock package while dropping some of the standard features of the top line two-up trail touring models. All in all, though, the 2011 Polaris 550 IQ LXT offers a value-laden package for the trail touring set.
While we snowmobile journalist types tend to ignore these fan-cooled trail-touring models as being too mundane for our tastes, the truth is that we see a goodly number of these sleds on the trails. While Polaris, as well as its competition, keeps this type of model in its line to appeal to rental operators, knowledgeable trail touring types recognize the value of sleds like the 550 IQ LXT for the same reasons as a rental operator. The power train is about as reliable and bulletproof as its gets.
