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.

    Performance Features
    • 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.
    • Built In The U.S.A.: The Pioneer 1000-5 is purpose-built for the American market, right in America. Domestically and globally sourced parts are all assembled at our plant in Timmonsville, South Carolina, and once these side-by-sides roll off the line, they’re ready to explore every corner of the country.
    • Fully-Automatic Six-Speed DCT Transmission: Drive the way you want, with the industry’s first and only 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. Choose between manual mode or fully automatic. Plus, the addition of Sport Mode increases the fun, shifting at higher RPMs for a spirited, full-performance driving experience.
    • High/Low Subtransmission: With a full 42-percent gear reduction between High and Low, you get the torque you need in all 6 gears. It comes in handy when driving over difficult terrain, scaling steep hills or towing heavy loads.
    • Hill Start Assist: Need to stop on a steep uphill? Honda’s Hill Start Assist automatically holds the Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition in position while you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator—there’s no roll-back drama.
    Handling Features
    • 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.
    • Bigger Tires: Practically speaking, the 27-inch tires on 12-inch rims help increase ground clearance, improve ride comfort, and deliver better traction. Realistically speaking, they just look great. And on Deluxe and Limited Edition models, you get Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires with radial construction and premium style.
    • Electric Power Steering: Our Electric Power Steering system helps eliminate bump steer through rocky and rutted terrain, which reduces fatigue. What makes it even better is the added assist you get when you need it most, like when you’re in 4WD, driving at lower speeds, or maneuvering over rough conditions. Standard on all 2021 Pioneer 1000-5 models.
    • Electronic Brakeforce Distribution: Heading down a hill? Is the bed loaded or empty? Honda’s Electronic Brakeforce Distribution automatically proportions the force to the front and rear brakes with changing conditions—all you do is press the brake pedal. (Standard on the Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition model.)
    • Independent Front And Rear Suspension: Dual A-arm suspension gives you 10.5 inches of travel in the front, and 10-inches of travel in the rear. Pair that with stellar ground clearance, and you maximize available traction and superior comfort maneuvering over terrain other side-by-sides would shy away from.
    • Paddle Shifting: Steering column-mounted paddle shifters add a serious dose of performance in every drive. In Manual mode, they let you shift without ever taking your hands off the wheel, and in Automatic mode, they let you override the current gear with a quick up or downshift, holding that gear for several seconds before returning to Automatic mode. For 2021, the whole Pioneer 1000-5 lineup offers this feature.
    • Turf/2wd/4wd/Diff Lock: Don’t tear up sensitive surfaces. Select Turf Mode. Want to access as much traction as possible? Put it in 4WD. Need maximum power at all four wheels? Lock the front and rear differentials. And the best part is, you can do it all with a shift of a single lever.
    Versatility Features
    • 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.
    • 1000-Pound-Capacity Tilt Bed: There are a ton of reasons to buy a Pioneer 1000-5. Among them: the half-ton hauling capacity*. No side-by-side can haul more, and when it comes to dumping, we’ve made it easier than ever, with a hydraulic assist tilt bed lever that can be accessed from outside the vehicle, or right from the driver’s seat. *600 pound bed capacity for CA models
    • Color-Match Door And Bedside Panels: Want to change the color of your Pioneer when hunting season rolls around? No problem. Our door and bedside panels can be easily swapped out for a different color scheme if and when you need it. This feature comes in particularly handy in case a panel sustains any damage on the job or trail. Available on 2021 Pioneer Deluxe and Limited Edition models.
    • Engine Air Intake: To get the most out of your engine, you need the best air going into it. That’s why we positioned the air intake up high under the hood. It helps ensure a clean air supply, even at deeper fording depths, and with a viscous air filter element, you get increased performance and longer service intervals.
    Comfort Features
    • 3-Person Contoured Bench Seat: Tough, durable and built to enhance every driving experience — yes, we’re talking about the seat. Contoured for three passengers, the center seat is positioned up and forward to maximize space and comfort, and the covering is designed to resist both the elements and heavy use.
    • LCD Display: The multi-function LCD dash display is large enough to host loads of information, in an easy-to-read way, like speed and fuel level. RPM and transmission mode. Fuel gauge, water temperature, trip information and more. It even includes a clock, so you’ll always know when it’s time for some fun.
    • Self-Load Leveling Rear Suspension: Even when you push your Pioneer 1000-5 to the limits, you compromise nothing. Just take the load-leveling suspension with cargo, passengers or both piled into the back — the rear suspension automatically adjusts to the weight change. So you maintain ground clearance, comfort and handling, without compromises.
    • Sophisticated Chassis: Some of the most impressive Pioneer 1000-5 features are those you’ll never see. In addition to the suspension and ground clearance, we rubber-mounted the engine and exhaust system to insulate the cabin against excessive vibration. So while you may not see this feature, it’s one you will definitely notice.
    • Tilt Wheel: With a tilt steering wheel, you’re ensured an even more comfortable driving experience. We’ve given the wheel a wide range of adjustments for optimum customization, and it even moves very far forward to allow for easy entry and exit. Standard on all 2021 Pioneer 1000-5 models.
    Safety Features
    • Driver/Passenger Protection: The Occupant Protection Structure uses large-diameter tubing, and meets OSHA’s rollover protection standard. The hard doors and roll-up side nets help keep debris from entering the cabin, and auto-style three-point seatbelts are equipped with an emergency locking retractor mechanism, to help optimize passenger security. When you put this much safety first, fun is sure to follow.
    • Four-Wheel Disc Brakes: The Pioneer’s uncompromising power helps take you further than ever before. The reliable disc brakes help you stop on a dime. Built to the same standard as you’d find in our autos, the four-wheel disc brakes minimize debris from building up, ensuring consistent performance, and giving you confidence on the trail.
