    Honda Announces 2016 Pioneer 1000

    Brand-new model to round out 2016 Pioneer multipurpose SxS lineup


    [​IMG]

    TORRANCE, Calif. (June 11, 2015) – Honda today announced the addition of two brand-new full-size side-by-side models—the groundbreaking Pioneer 1000 and Pioneer 1000-5—to its 2016 lineup. With class-leading displacement and payload, a 6-speed fully automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) and a full list of features and options, the flagship Pioneer 1000 promises to raise the bar in terms of power, performance and capability in both work and recreation applications.

    “We’re very excited about the all-new 999cc engine we’ve developed for these new Pioneers,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda. “We’ve also added the industry’s only fully automatic mechanical transmission—the 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. With steel gears, the DCT offers true engine braking, seamless shifting and a smooth, reliable transfer of power.”

    Immediately assuming its position as the clear leader in the full-size multipurpose SxS category, Honda’s new-from-the-ground-up, no-compromise Pioneer 1000 is powered by a purpose-built inline, twin-cylinder, Unicam 999cc engine. It’s also the first side-by-side with a 6-speed fully automatic DCT, a state-of-the-art beltless transmission that is durable, efficient and easy to use. Designed, developed and produced according to Honda’s holistic methodology, the largest Pioneer is smooth-riding and extremely versatile. Built in the USA using domestically and globally sourced parts, the Pioneer 1000 is offered in four different configurations, from the base three-person version to the Deluxe five-person model, which features 14-inch aluminum wheels, 27-inch radial tires, LED headlights and electric power steering. Every Pioneer 1000 comes standard with four-wheel-drive, as well as a high-low sub-transmission and 4-mode differential lock, while the five-person model features auto-leveling rear suspension and a full-size convertible bed with Honda’s exclusive QuickFlip seating. An extensive range of Honda Accessories is available, and the Pioneer 1000 is covered by a one-year warranty.

    Pioneer 700/700-4
    Since its introduction, Honda’s Pioneer 700-4 has set new standards in versatility, thanks to the industry’s first QuickFlip convertible rear-seating design, which switches between two-, three- and four-person configurations. In all cases, wheelbase remains a manageable 76.8 inches, and in the two-person configuration, it provides a full bed with tilt mode. Both versions are powered by a rubber-mounted 675cc liquid-cooled engine that’s paired with an automatic transmission with automotive-style torque converter and a dual-stage shift map.

    Pioneer 500
    Introduced last model year, the compact Pioneer 500 is easy to maneuver in tight conditions, and it fits into a full-size truck bed or a small storage shed. This fun and affordable 4WD vehicle does it all in style and comfort, with a similar look to the larger Pioneer models. It also has steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifting, 450-pound-capacity large rear carrier design, independent rear suspension and single-function door and net. And of course the Pioneer 500 has the superior engineering and record of durability and reliability for which all Honda four-wheel powersports products are known.

    That looks like it could be a nice machine. I'd really like to give one a test drive!

    Yeah, me too. Your liking that paddle shifter aren't you??? I'm hoping they have made improvements in the suspension also. This could be a winner for them.

    I like that it has a full automatic mode and a sport with the use of paddles. Haven't a DCT trans and not having to worry about burning up a belt sure is sweet.

    It is going to be different ball game in the UTV World if this 1000 turns out to be the real deal! I was excited when the 700 Pioneer came out and my neighbor and friend bought one then asked me to help install some accessories on it. One look and I knew it was not going to be service friendly. One thing to Polaris's Credit the 900 is very service friendly. I will wait and pass judgement when I can get up close and personal with one. If it is Service unfriendly as the Pioneer I am not interested. I dislike working on things you can't get too easily. [​IMG]

    The transmission could be a great option.

    Shane, there is a lot to like about it. The transmission and paddle shift is one! I think it is going to take a while for them to catch up with the Polaris Lock & Ride Cab Design. The Pioneer 700 my neighbor has is really very crude in its roll bar cab concept compared to the Polaris 570's and 900's. The 1000, however, is going to get a lot of attention with that new twin cylinder engine and that 6 speed transmission. The UTV field gets more interesting by the day :)
