American Honda Motor Company has unveiled its new generation of the FourTrax Rancher and FourTrax Foreman lines of ATVs for the 2014 model year.
Excitement continues to build as American Honda introduces more new 2014 models for off-road enthusiasts. This ongoing infusion of innovative engineering highlights the commitment Honda is making to consumers, as more new models bring ever-higher capabilities across the board.
American Honda Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino said the Rancher and Foreman ATVs have "completely new frames, suspension, styling and elevated levels of performance.”

The new chassis is wrapped in all-new bodywork with distinctively aggressive styling. There are multiple choices in the FourTrax Rancher:
- • The 4WD FourTrax Rancher 4x4 ES featuring Honda's Electric Shift Program that makes gear shifts as easy as pushing a button.
- • The 4WD FourTrax Rancher Automatic DCT features Honda's Dual Clutch Transmission, and a five-speed, fully automatic transmission that also gives the rider the option of ESP mode.
- • The FourTrax Rancher 4x4 offers riders 4WD with a traditional manual-shift gearbox.
- • The two-wheel-drive FourTrax Rancher available with manual or electric shift.
Most of these models also offer the option of Electric Power Steering. Colors: Honda Phantom Camo, Olive, Red, Orange. Price: To be announced.

Fully adjustable long-travel suspension front and rear get that power to the ground. At the same time, the TRX450R's race-proven durability makes it a great match for recreational riders as well as racers.

Its 397cc Radial Four-Valve Combustion Chamber powerplant offers a combination of high-performance and rugged durability.

Features such as a five-speed transmission plus reverse and electric start bolster the fun part of the equation as well. Color: Red. Price: To be announced.
TRX250X:The midsized TRX250X boasts a distinctly sporty look with aggressive, race-inspired styling.

TRX90X: The TRX90X serves as the ideal starting point for introducing new riders to the world of ATVs.
