Honda Rolls Out Pioneer 1000

New, larger models complete 2016 Pioneer side-by-side lineup.

Honda rounds out its line of Pioneer UTVs with the introduction of the Pioneer 1000 and Pioneer 1000-5, which can haul an impressive 1,000 pounds and tow a full ton. The 999-cc. machines join the 675-cc. Pioneer 700 and smaller 475-cc. Pioneer 500.

“We’re excited about the all-new 999-cc. engine we’ve developed for these new Pioneers,” says Lee Edmunds with American Honda. “We’ve also added the industry’s only fully automatic mechanical transmission – the six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). With steel gears, the DCT offers true engine braking, seamless shifting, and a smooth, reliable transfer of power.”

The Pioneer 1000 is powered by a purpose-built inline, twin-cylinder, Unicam engine. The engine and exhaust system are rubber mounted to insulate riders from vibration.

Independent, double-wishbone suspension in the front and rear provides 10 inches of travel for a comfortable off-road ride.

The Pioneer 1000 is offered in four different configurations, from the base three-person vehicle to the deluxe five-person model, which features 14-inch aluminum wheels, 27-inch radial tires, LED headlights, and electric power steering. Each machine comes standard with four-wheel drive, a high-low sub-transmission, and four-mode differential lock. The five-person model includes auto-leveling rear suspension and a full-size convertible bed with QuickFlip seating.

The 1000 models will be available in fall of 2015. Pricing information has not been announced.
