2021 Honda® Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe
BIG JOBS? BRING ‘EM ON!
What’s the right number of people for a job? Trick question, right? You need to tailor your crew to your needs—and that’s exactly what Honda’s Pioneer 1000-5 family of side-by-sides does so well. With room for five occupants, all three models feature the same core values: smart technology, superior materials, and refined engineering, along with Honda’s world-famous reputation for reliability and quality.
The biggest difference from our three-seat models? These Pioneers include Honda’s QuickFlip® seating in the bed, letting you instantly switch from a fold-flat bed configuration to comfortable passenger seating. In short, our Pioneer 1000-5 models make a versatile line of side-by-sides even more versatile.
Features may include:
The Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition showcases our exclusive i-4WD system. Think “I” for “Intelligent,” because that’s exactly what it is. An industry-first brake-traction control system for side-by-sides, it simplifies operation, increases drivability and optimizes traction. Using proven, advanced technology from Honda’s automotive division, you get the benefits associated with a locked front differential with none of the downsides. That means it maintains front-wheel traction even if one wheel wants to spin on ice or mud or if it’s in a hole. But at the same time, you get the lighter steering, better tracking at high speeds, tighter turning radius, and reduced kickback associated with unlocked front differentials.
- POWERFUL 999cc TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
When you know the power you need is always at the ready, every drive is an enjoyable experience. And that’s precisely what you get out of the class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin. Using the same Unicam® cylinder head design found in our motocross bikes, it’s more compact in size, and it still delivers the kind of horsepower and torque you’d expect from a flagship model.
- 2000-POUND TOWING CAPACITY
Call it 2000 pounds, or call it 1 ton. Either way, the towing capacity of the Pioneer 1000-5 is unsurpassed by any competitor. So instead of hopping on the tractor or taking out the truck, you can stay right in your side-by-side and tackle those bigger jobs with relative ease.
- CHASSIS AND SUSPENSION
Prepare to go further than ever before. Our refined chassis enables you to tackle terrain others would shy away from, with larger tires, long-travel independent front and rear suspension and huge ground clearance. The rubber mounted engine and exhaust system insulates against excessive vibration and the self-leveling rear suspension compensation for changing loads. Plus, the Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition gets premium, quick-adjust FOX QS-3 shocks on all four corners.
- ADVANCED TRANSMISSION LOGIC
The brain of the DCT, Advanced Transmission Logic, senses how you drive and adapts. Relaxed drivers get earlier shifts for a quieter ride at lower engine speeds. Sportier drivers will hold each gear longer for higher RPM shifts. And when going downhill, you get true engine braking. Now that’s a smart transmission.
- QUICKFLIP® SEATING
Want to bring an extra one or two passengers along for the ride? Two QuickFlip® seats pop up from the cargo bed on Pioneer 1000-5 models, giving you the extra seating you need, when you need it. Exclusive to Honda, it’s a smarter system than fixed seat, multi-row models, giving you better maneuverability on the trails.
