Default 2013 Ski-Doo Renegade X 1200 Review - Video

Let's be honest here, if we were going to opt into Ski-Doo's stretch track Renegade family, we'd spec out an 800cc E-TEC two-stroke. It has greater power and the latest "XS" sport chassis with the rounded edges, which would let us move better through off-trail snows. But, for overall everyday versatility, it would be hard to beat the solid performance of Ski-Doo's Rotax-powered 1200 4-TEC triple. What's not to like about an engine that can push close to 20 miles per gallon on the trail and offers extremely smooth low end and midrange performance?

The 2013 Ski-Doo Renegade X sits atop the stretch-track four-stroke hierarchy. It enjoys a claimed 130-horsepower ranking from its 1170.7cc triple cylinder engine. Designed and built by Ski-Doo's longtime engine partner (and subsidiary) Rotax, the four-stroker has proven itself to be one of the best all-around engines in the snowmobile line up. It has ample torque, which works well in the Renegade as a hard-charger out of the corners and equally as well when breaking trail. Drive away power at its 2500-rpm engagement is smooth with strong midrange performance. It's at the top end that you feel the limits being reached, although the engine always seems willing to race up to its 7800-rpm maximum engine speed.
