Whether you’re a fan or new to the ride, there’s no denying the appeal of the Polaris Slingshot, the three wheel vehicle that has taken over the streets since it’s debut in 2015. Each year, the Slingshot ride has gotten much smoother, with the addition of improved suspension, and a more finished look. In 2020, the introduction of the AutoDrive version allowed automatic drivers to experience the Slingshot thrill. Today, the new 2023 Polaris Slingshot line up features new colors, new accessories, and boasts more factory customization than ever before. “Whether you’re looking to elevate your everyday, escape on an epic adventure, or utilize the three-wheel canvas for self-expression, the 2023 Polaris Slingshot delivers limitless possibilities to design your perfect ride,” said Chris Sergeant, Polaris Slingshot Vice President. “Each year we continue to evolve the lineup by listening to our riders, and this year is another example of thoughtful additions and enhancements that answer the call and serve our passionate owners.”
Let’s take a look at the new 2023 line up!
The Slingshot S serves as the ultimate blank canvas ready for personalization. The S is available in Moonlight White in both a manual (Starting at $21,499 & $21,799 in California) and AutoDrive (Starting at $23,349 & $23,649 in California).
Slingshot S with Technology Package 1
Owners looking to take their S model to the next level can opt for Technology Package 1, which includes a 50-watt Rockford Fosgate® audio system with a 2.7-inch display, speaker pods and Rockford Fosgate® tweeters in the dash. Technology Package 1 also upgrades the S models with the vehicle security package and a standard Ripper Series Clear Wind Deflector to improve comfort. S with Technology Package 1 is available in Moonlight White and Jet Black in both a manual (Starting at $24,299 & $24,599 in California) and AutoDrive (Starting at $26,149 & $26,449 in California).
The Slingshot SL delivers next-level styling and is ready to personalize. The SL is available in four colorways with additional style components, premium paint finishes, a 100-watt Rockford Fosgate® audio system, and the seven-inch touchscreen display powered by RIDE COMMAND. The SL allows the driver to be seen and heard and takes the S to a whole new level.

The Slingshot R returns as the top-of-the-line model for those who love to stand out. Available in five colorways, the R turns heads with its enhanced bold multi-tone paint scheme, premium features, and standout style. The Slingshot R packs the 203-horsepower ProStar engine, Brembo® painted front calipers, paddle shifters (AutoDrive only), and the seven-inch touchscreen display powered by RIDE COMMAND with turn-by-turn navigation, connected services, and Apple CarPlay®. The R gets a high-performance facelift with an eye-catching Sport Vented Hood. 2023 R models are available in Desert Sky, Graphite Blue, Miami Blue Fade, Lime Dream, and Pacific Teal Haze in both a manual (Starting at $33,999 & $34,299 in California) and AutoDrive (Starting at $36,149 & $36,449 in California).
Slingshot owners might be interested in the new 2023 premium accessory upgrades. These pieces allow you to customize your Slingshot to your own look and feel. Here are a few of my favorite upgrades this year:
Vented Sport Hood, Excursion Top, and Slingshade
Available in 16 different colors, the Vented Sport Hood improves aerodynamics and cockpit airflow via vented fenders and a hood scoop, while adding aggressive style. The Vented Sport Hood comes stock on the Slingshot R, but is available as an accessory upgrade for all other 2020-2023 models. For additional style and extra shade for sunny days, the Excursion Top and Slingshade are the two available top options on select models. The Excursion Top elevates riding comfort with a canvas top that’s easy to install and remove, ready for install on 2022 and newer vehicles. The Slingshade sets the standard with its vertical opening T-Top panels featuring friction hinge technology and impressive fit and finish. Designed alongside the vehicle, Slingshade flaunts sleek lines and automotive-grade finishes, color-matched to the vehicle. Getting in and out is easy with T-Top panels that feature tinted windows to retain overhead views and provide extra cockpit light. Slingshade is available as an accessory upgrade for all 2020-2023 models.
Heated and Cooled Seats
The addition of Heated and Cooled seats extends the driving season and enhances the driving experience. The seats are powered by industry-leading Thermoelectric technology and flexible High-Tech Graphene material with three seat settings for optimal heating and cooling. Easy-to-access large control buttons are back-lit and feature haptic feedback.
Slingshot offers premium wheels for outstanding performance and distinctive style. With the addition of the premium Brembo® braking system and its multi-piston, painted calipers and lightweight rotors, owners get the ultimate level of performance, aesthetics, and comfort.
Standard in all Slingshot models, with the exception of the S, is a state-of-the-art, 100-watt Rockford Fosgate® audio system. The addition of the Stage 3 Roll Hoop Audio Kit by Rockford Fosgate® in each headrest allows drivers to both upgrade their sound and customize their look by either matching or contrasting with their Slingshot’s color scheme.
Customer Requested Accessories
In response to customer feedback, Polaris Slingshot is introducing two new factory accessories for 2023. Slingshot adds convenience with a RAM® X-Grip Phone Mount and an Excursion Rearview Mirror, which will be available in spring 2023. The new Slingshot cell phone mounts to the center of the Slingshot dash – offering easy viewing and accessibility.
With the Interior LED Lighting by XKGlow®, drivers can now flaunt their true colors and match their driving mood by synchronizing the interior lights to change with their music through an exclusive Slingshot app. The lights include the full red, green, and blue color light spectrum for total customization.
The full accessory line up will be available at dealers Spring 2023. The 2023 full Slingshot lineup ships to dealers in early 2023. Learn more about the 2023 lineup at https://slingshot.polaris.com/en-us/.
