2019 Honda® Pioneer 1000-5 EPS Deluxe Go Beyond extraordinary Features may include: Engine & Drivetrain Powerful performance The ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS DLX is built around a 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with Honda’s famed four-valve Unicam cylinder head. Smart transmission Honda’s fully automatic six-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission senses how you’re riding, monitoring throttle input, engine rpm, vehicle speed and more. Going downhill? The Pioneer stays in a lower gear for superior engine braking. If you want to choose a specific gear, upshift or downshift yourself in demanding conditions or even override the automatic gear selection, the twin paddle-type shifters make it easy and fun. And of course, there are no belts to worry about. Chassis & Suspension Comfortable ride With 268 mm (10.5 in.) of travel from the front independent suspension and 254 mm (10 in.) of travel from the rear independent suspension – with new dual-rated springs for 2017 – you’re assured of a smooth, well-controlled ride with generous ground clearance. Additional Features Versatile seating The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS DLX gives you the ultimate in seating options. In addition to the comfortable three-passenger contoured bench seat up front, the bed incorporates a pair of seats that flip up or fold down independently in seconds. Up, they provide secure seating for one or two additional passengers; down, you get a flat cargo bed for utility use. With improved seat comfort for 2017. Powerful towing You can load a full half-ton (1,000 lb) into the bed of the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS DLX. And when it’s time to unload, the bed’s hydraulic-assisted tilting feature makes dumping firewood, gravel, feed or other items easy. And because it’s able to tow a full ton (907 kg/2,000 lb) – with an imporved hitch mount for 2017 – the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS DLX can take on big jobs that otherwise would require a tractor or a truck.
