2022 Honda® Pioneer 520
THE RIGHTSIZED SIDE-BY-SIDE
In a world where so many folks think bigger is better, why would you choose a more moderately sized side-by-side? There are dozens of reasons—especially when you’re talking about Honda’s Pioneer 520. It may be compact, but it’s a real heavyweight when it comes to versatility and performance. At just 50 inches wide, it lets you and a passenger go where other side-by-sides can’t—namely on width-restricted trails. It comfortably seats two, but it also fits in a full-sized pickup bed, making transportation easy. Its powerful, 518cc engine offers Honda’s famous performance and reliability, and a strut-assist tilt/dump utility bed makes it even more versatile. Plus, you can choose from a wide range of features, like our Honda automatic transmission with AT/MT modes, and selectable two- or four-wheel drive. And if you’re looking for a similar model, but without the dump bed, make sure you check out our Pioneer 500—it’s a great option at an excellent price.
Features may include:
- POWERFUL 518cc ENGINE
With an engine that’s both bigger and more powerful than our Pioneer 500’s, the Pioneer 520 also features electronic fuel injection for effortless cold-weather and high-altitude operation. The engine is specially tuned for low-rpm torque, too. Coupled with an efficient five-speed automatic transmission, you’ll have plenty of pulling power.
- AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH AT/MT MODE
You can let the Honda Pioneer 520’s automatic transmission shift for you, or you can still shift yourself with its paddle shifters. You can even shift from auto to manual (AT to MT) on the fly!
- TILT/DUMP BED
The Pioneer 520 features a super-convenient tilt/dump bed. Measuring 38.7 inches wide, 25.9 inches long and 9.8 inches high, it can carry up to 450 pounds. An assist strut makes dumping easy, the tailgate opens flat, and the inside of the bed is set up for plywood dividers, or to hold milk crates or plastic buckets. It also accommodates our line of Honda Pro-Connect™ system accessories.
- COMPACT 50-INCH WIDTH AND TRAXLOK 2WD/4WD
The Pioneer 520’s 50-inch overall width is a huge bonus, whether it’s for width-restricted trails or convenient transportation and storage (it fits into the bed of most full-sized pickups). Plus, our rock-solid TraxLok system lets you choose either 2WD or 4WD, giving you the freedom to choose between lighter steering (in 2WD) and maximizing available traction (in 4WD) when you need it most.
