2014 Honda FourTrax Rancher ATV
Robert Boop

For 2014, the two-wheel-drive FourTrax® Rancher® ATV stays true to its hard-working roots, only more so thanks to an all-new frame and front and rear suspension with increased travel and adjustable spring preload to accommodate various load conditions. A new enclosed-axle swingarm provides optimized stiffness for improved durability, and contributes to even better handling along with a smoother ride. Whether the day calls for hard work or loads of fun, the FourTrax Rancher's torque-laden liquid-cooled fuel-injected 420cc engine gets the job done. Choices include a model with Honda's renowned Electric Shift Program (ESP) for push-button shifting, or a manual-shift model to suit your specific riding style. Either way, the new FourTrax Rancher/FourTrax Rancher ES ATV make every ride more fun.
