The Polaris Slingshot is about to come in for its first redesign, and the new model has been teased again in a video posted to social media on Wednesday.
The short clips gives us a taste of the new styling we can look forward to on the redesigned three-wheeler with updated lighting and small design tweaks.
Although Polaris is calling this a redesign, it looks like the new Slingshot will be an evolution of the current model (shown below). This means a steel spaceframe with dual-wishbone front suspension and an aluminum swingarm out back.
The front lighting elements appear to be upgraded to LED unis while the windshield on the model shown with a roof (which is only on the top-spec GT model today) is lower to allow a more open-air experience.
The refreshed Slingshot will also feature a revised dashboard with pushbutton start and toggle switches for vehicle systems such as electronic stability control and the four-way flashers.
The current model first arrived on the scene in 2014 and has attained quite the formidable reputation thanks to its low weight and ease of modification. We’ll remind you that the Slingshot weighs just 1,750 pounds and comes with a 2.4-liter inline-4 with 173 horsepower on tap. The engine is sourced from General Motors and thus has a long list of parts available.
Expect performance to be upped with this redesign.
Polaris plans to reveal the redesigned Slingshot on January 14.
