    Per test drive, a $10 donation will be made by Polaris Slingshot to a local food shelf or a national organization such as Feeding America. Slingshot hopes to fund up to 250,000 meals across the country during this campaign.

    “During these times, millions of Americans are struggling to put food on the table and we are proud to be working in cooperation with our dealers to help give back to those in need in their community,” said Chris Sergeant, Vice President of Polaris Slingshot. “This program proves that just a little can go a long way to make a difference, providing an opportunity for all of us to be superheroes.”

    In addition, consumers can go online to PolarisSlingshot.com and enter the “It’s Automatic” sweepstakes. Now through September, to celebrate the all-new 2020 Polaris Slingshot lineup, the brand is giving away a fully-accessorized 2020 Slingshot SL with the new AutoDrive transmission. When visiting the webpage, consumers enter by selecting their favorite Slingshot accessory collection then filling out and submitting the entry form.

    The remodeled 2020 Slingshot lineup, including the SL and R, features 70% all-new vehicle content and delivers next-level driving experiences. Taking center stage is Slingshot’s AutoDrive transmission. With no clutch pedal or manual shifting necessary, drivers can operate a 2020 Slingshot with AutoDrive in much the same way they drive a standard automatic. With the majority of people unable to operate a stick shift, the implementation of the AutoDrive transmission takes the next step to further expand accessibility.

    Furthermore, each 2020 Slingshot packs Polaris Industries’ first four-cylinder engine, the ProStar 2.0L, and a completely redesigned interior – providing more comfort and convenience with a new steering wheel, gauges, and added storage compartments.

    Starting at $26,499, the SL with AutoDrive is available in Red Pearl and Blue Steel paint colors. Pricing for the R model begins at $30,999 for a manual and $32,699 for AutoDrive. Both R options are available in Stealth Black and Miami Blue paint colors.
