Honda FourTrax Rancher AT

Isn’t it great when something in life actually works out BETTER than promised? That’s how you’re going to feel when you choose a Honda Rancher AT. When you look at all it offers, it’s easy to see why the Rancher AT is such a hit. First it belongs to the best-selling ATV family in America. Because they’re Hondas, they offer a legendary degree of dependability and quality. Then there’s the lineup itself, with the Rancher AT standing proud as the flagship. Built around the same class-leading 420cc engine as our other Ranchers, the AT makes a great ATV even better with features like plush Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), Electric Power Steering (EPS), Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI), TraxLok 2WD/4WD system, and a revolutionary, twin-clutch-equipped automatic five-speed transmission that’s arguably one of the slickest- and quickest-shifting gearboxes on dirt. It’s versatile, too, as the Rancher AT lets you choose between going fully automatic or shifting via the push-button Electric Shift Program (ESP).

Like all Honda utility ATVs, our FourTrax Ranchers feature a strong, single-cylinder engine with a crankshaft that sits front-to-back in the chassis. That eliminates any unnecessary right-angle powertrain directional changes, and that means more power gets to the ground where it does the most good. But that’s just one example of superior Honda engineering, and the Rancher AT offers tons more.

Electric Shift Program (ESP)

Upshifting or downshifting is easy and fast—just push one of two handlebar-mounted buttons. ESP is a huge advantage when riding in heavy boots, or if your boots are covered in mud or snow.

TraxLok Selectable 2WD/4WD

This invaluable feature allows a rider to shift, via a front-panel-mounted lever, between 2WD and 4WD for maximum versatility during tough chores or on uneven terrain.

Programmed Fuel Injection

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 Idle Air Control Valve (IACV), the Rancher AT not only ensures trouble-free operation in the cold and at varying altitudes, it enhances fuel economy as well.

Semi-dry-sump Engine Design

Our semi-dry sump and overhead valve designs give you an engine that’s shorter from top to bottom. The compact engine both lowers the center of gravity and increases ground clearance.

Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)

The Rancher AT’s double-wishbone, Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) allows each wheel to travel independently from the other over uneven terrain, helping maintain optimal tire contact. Add 6.3" of wheel travel to this formula, and what you have is arguably the most responsive handling, highest ride quality and best traction of any ATV in its class.
