2017 Honda Pioneer 1000 EPS


When it comes to finding new, innovative ways to solve problems, Honda has always risen to the challenge. Take our family of Pioneer 1000s. These great side-by-sides got it right the first time in terms of comfort, handling, hauling, and user-friendly features, but we’ve taken the opportunity to make them even better this year. By applying a hefty dose of Honda technology, we’re giving you what we think is the best side-by-side out there—the new Pioneer 1000 Limited Edition. What makes it so special? First, the combination of Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT), combined with our revolutionary I-4WD technology. Then we’ve added FOX QS-3 shock absorbers, and have enhanced the Pioneer 1000’s comfort and protection features.


  • 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.

Power and Performance

  • BUILT IN THE U.S.A.: The Pioneer 1000 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.
  • 2000-POUND TOWING CAPACITY: Call it 2000 pounds, or call it 1 ton. Either way, the towing capacity of the Pioneer 1000 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.
