Introduction

UTVs are excellent all-terrain vehicles that have at least two seats, hence the name side by side. UTVs can have 4 seats, and even up to 6 seats on the larger models. You can expect to have cargo space in the back and a roof overhead.

In this article, we are going to compare pricing on new and used UTVs for some of the most popular manufacturers and brands. When you’re ready, you can use NADAguides to help identify pricing, and then use the NADAguides Powersports Buying Program to see a price and find a dealer that sells your desired vehicle.

Average Pricing for New UTVs

You can expect to pay anywhere from $4k-$30K+ for a new side by side. Based on data from GoRollick, the average price of a new UTV is $15,626. Side by side pricing is highly dependent on two factors, engine size, and accessories. The larger the engine, the more expensive the starting MSRP. Likewise, you will notice your total price appreciate significantly when you start making upgrades and adding accessories to your vehicle.

Average Pricing for Pre-Owned UTVs

Pre-owned UTVs are a great option to consider because the cost will be lower than if you purchase the same vehicle new. Based on data from GoRollick, the average price of a used side by side in 2019 was $10,762.  Many people choose to purchase used because you have more negotiating power and you can often get a higher-end vehicle, potentially with aftermarket upgrades, for significantly less than a brand new model. There are a few drawbacks to purchasing used such as hidden mechanical problems or, depending on the age, the vehicle might be out of warranty.

The other thing to consider is that the pricing of new models typically rises over time. Based on data from GoRollick, the median price of a 2018 model year UTV was $15,799. For the 2020 model year vehicles, the median MSRP has appreciated to $16,999, or about $1,200 higher vs. the 2018 models. So in some cases, it might make sense to purchase pre-owned.
