These new units were among several 2014 off-road models that Honda announced yesterday.

"These new models, along with additional Honda favorites returning for the new model year, demonstrate Honda's commitment to providing more choices to our customers, and we'll be introducing more exciting new models in the coming months as Honda continues to lead the expansion of the powersports market,” said Honda’s powersports press manager, Bill Savino.
Honda's liquid-cooled fuel-injected 420cc FourTrax Rancher models feature a redesigned frame with new, longer-travel suspension. The new chassis is wrapped in all-new bodywork.
The multiple choices in FourTrax Rancher drivetrain styles remain:
- the 4WD FourTrax Rancher 4x4 ES features 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, 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; and
- the two-wheel-drive FourTrax Rancher is available with manual or electric shift.
Most of these models also offer the option of Electric Power Steering. Color options will be Honda Phantom Camo, olive, red and orange. (Continued.)
