How Much Is an ATV

How Much Is a ATV? (2020)


ATVs are becoming more and more accessible and the market for buying ATVs is steadily growing. This means consumers have the privilege of choice, but sometimes too much choice can seem paralyzing. This article will help you understand how much you should expect to pay for an ATV in 2020. There are three categories of ATVs and we will cover the expected MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price) for a range of vehicles in each category.
For reference, here are the three ATV categories and a brief explanation of each one:

  1. Sport ATV: These machines are designed for competition and are lightweight, maneuverable and fast. They typically don’t include many of the creature comforts that other types of ATVs include. What they lack in features they make up for in thrills. They will still provide a relaxed ride, but on a sport quad, who would want to do that with such capability? If ATV’s were blades, these are the lightsabers.


  1. Utility ATV: The do-it-all machines, they bring low-speed-power, more advanced and versatile suspension, the go-anywhere abilities of four-wheel drive, and the ability to haul loads & pull trailers with their front & rear racks and hitch receivers. These machines will do most things in comfort compared to their sporty thoroughbred relatives. Work, camping, playing; they’re all no problem.


  1. Youth ATV: These are your beginner ATV’s with engines as small as 50cc up to nearly 200cc. The model range in this class provides a multi-tiered system for developing responsible adult riders. The machines are smaller overall, have simpler systems on them, and avoid the complicated bells & whistles. They are made for ease of use, low maintenance, and are able to be easily limited by adult supervision. Read through our 5 best youth ATVs for your kids and learn more about what to purchase.

How Much Does a Used ATV Cost?

If you are interested in purchasing a used ATV, like any other recreational vehicle, you can expect the cost to be lower than buying a new ATV. Based on GoRollick data, the average price of a used ATV is $5,592. 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. One drawback to purchasing a used ATV is that if you buy the vehicle from a third party, you lose the option to finance through a dealer. Also, depending on the age of the ATV, it may not be under warranty anymore and if the ATV has not been maintained properly, there can be hidden issues that can be costly.
Here are some examples of used ATVs:
2017 Honda FourTrax Rancher 4×4

– Price: $5,488
2017 Polaris Sportsman 570

– Price: $4,999

2016 Suzuki QuadSport Z90

– Price: $2,299

2016 Yamaha Kodiak 700 EPS

– Price: $6,999
2018 Suzuki KingQuad 750 AXi

– Price: $6,499
