Engine & Drivetrain Features
- Powerful performance: The ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS is built around a 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with Honda’s famed four-valve Unicam cylinder head.
- Smart transmission: Honda’s fully automatic six-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission senses how you’re riding, monitoring throttle input, engine rpm, vehicle speed and more. Going downhill? The Pioneer stays in a lower gear for superior engine braking. If you want to choose a specific gear, upshift or downshift yourself in demanding conditions or even override the automatic gear selection, the twin paddle-type shifters make it easy and fun. And of course, there are no belts to worry about.
- Tackle any terrain: Venturing over really tricky, rocky terrain, hauling a big load down a steep hill, or need some real hill-climbing ability? The high/low-range subtransmission provides a full 42-percent gear reduction when you switch to the low range.
- Clever controls: The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS allows you to quickly and easily choose from 2WD, 4WD, 4WD with differentials locked for the toughest conditions, or Turf mode that’s perfect for sensitive surfaces like grass fields or for easier steering. All via a dash-mounted lever.
- Clean air flow: The engine’s air intake is located up high and under the hood to help ensure a clean air supply. The new viscous air-filter element flows air well for increased performance, and also provides a longer service interval.
- Reduced vibration: The rubber-mounted engine and exhaust system insulates you from annoying vibration, adding to the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS's superb comfort.
Chassis & Suspension Features
- Smooth steering: Honda’s automotive-style Electric Power Steering lessens steering effort and helps eliminate bump steer, especially over rocks, logs and on sidehills. Plus, a tilt steering wheel lets you find a position that’s just right for you.
- Comfortable ride: With 268 mm (10.5 in.) of travel from the front independent suspension and 254 mm (10 in.) of travel from the rear independent suspension you’re assured of a smooth, well-controlled ride with generous ground clearance.
- Improved handling: When you fill the two rear seats or put a bigger load in the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS's bed, the rear suspension automatically senses the weight increase and adjusts the ride height to compensate. This maintains ground clearance and maximizes handling and comfort when loaded.
- Superior stopping power: With a side-by-side this powerful and capable, you need brakes that are up to the job, too. Honda’s extensive automotive experience means you know the all-wheel disc brake system is up to the task.
- Excellent traction: The Pioneer 1000-5 comes standard with large 27-inch radial tires on special 12-inch aluminum wheels for excellent ride comfort, improved ground clearance and superior traction.
- Versatile seating: The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS gives you the ultimate in seating options. In addition to the comfortable three-passenger contoured bench seat up front, the bed incorporates a pair of seats that flip up or fold down independently in seconds. Up, they provide secure seating for one or two additional passengers; down, you get a flat cargo bed for utility use.
- Powerful towing: You can load a full half-ton (1,000 lb) into the bed of the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS. And when it’s time to unload, the bed’s hydraulic-assisted tilting feature makes dumping firewood, gravel, feed or other items easy. And because it’s able to tow a full ton (907 kg/2,000 lb) – with an imporved hitch mount for 2017 – the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS can take on big jobs that otherwise would require a tractor or a truck.
- Secure design: The Occupant Protection Structure uses large-diameter tubing and includes integrated handholds, recessed top tubes and a more spacious structure to enhance protection. Hard doors and roll-up side nets provide a secure feel and keep mud and debris out of the cabin, while automotive-style three-point belts with an Emergency Locking Retractor mechanism help keep everyone secure. A speed limiter prevents travel faster than 24 km/h if it detects that a seat belt isn’t being worn.
- Intuitive display: The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS features deluxe, multi-function LCD instrumentation that displays fuel level, engine speed (rpm), vehicle speed, tripmeter, odometer, a clock, gear position and much more.
- Terrific visibility: LED headlights provide excellent nighttime illumination.
- Adventurous style: Colour-matched doors and bed panels add to the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS’s striking good looks.
- Easy add-ons: The Pioneer 1000 is already pre-wired to make adding an optional winch a snap, and a host of other accessories allow you to fully tailor your Pioneer to your specific needs.
