If I want a rough, punishing ride when woods or trail riding at any an speed above a slow crawl I'll get a Jeep of a Roxor.
Till then I'll stick with sport UTV's.
Why Are Side-by-Sides So Expensive? Here's the Answer! - YouTube
I use my vehicles to get work done, not to play. Since the OP is replacing a Gator 620i, I'm assuming he is using it for similar applications.
I have no need to go 40+ MPH through my woods. My trails are far from pristine, but if they were in anything close to the shape of what is shown in that video, I'd fix them. I have absolutely no need for 12" or 16" of travel in my suspension. My current access is via tractor or one of two antique Coot utility vehicles (basically no suspension). It's not really an issue when I'm pulling out 3000# of logs. If I had an extra $40,000 lying around, I'd put it toward more land.
Sure, if the OP's interest is in recreation, maybe a $30-$40,000 UTV makes sense for him.
