Honda announced their new full-size side by side models for their 2016 lineup, the Pioneer 1000 and the Pioneer 1000-5. The new models will come equipped with a 6-speed automatic dual clutch transmission, with a newly developed twin-cylinder 999cc engine. This Pioneer is completely new, from the ground-up. Its state-of-the-art beltless transmission is durable, efficient and easy to use. This is perhaps the best Pioneer yet.


As the first side by side with a 6-speed fully automatic dual clutch transmission, the 2016 Pioneer is made in the USA, using side by side parts that are domestically and globally sourced. Designed in accordance with Honda’s holistic methodology, the Pioneer provides the smoothest, most versatile ride, hands down.


There is a base model three-person version and a deluxe five-seater. Both come standard with four-wheel-drive. The deluxe five-person Pioneer features LED headlights, 14-inch aluminum wheels, 27-inch radial tires and electric power steering. And we can’t forget the various colors offered – options are limited by model selection – but choose from colors such as red, olive, orange, white, metallic silver, and Honda Phantom Camo.


Whether you’ll be using your 2016 Honda Pioneer 1000 for work or play, you’ll have the ability to carry up to 1,000 pounds or even tow a full ton! The hydraulic tilt bed, along with a fully-independent front and rear suspension assist you in hauling the hefty loads. This is truly a Honda Pioneer that is unlike any you’ve had before!
