2018 Honda Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE

THE SIDE-BY-SIDE, REINVENTED
The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS 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.
The ultimate side-by-side needs plenty of power, so the Pioneer 1000 EPS is built around a 999 cc fuel-injected twin-cylinder engine with Honda’s famed four-valve Unicam cylinder head.
The Pioneer 1000 EPS allows you to quickly and easily choose from 2WD, 4WD, 4WD with differentials locked for the toughest conditions, or Turf mode that’s perfect for sensitive surfaces like grass fields or for easier steering. All via a dash-mounted lever.
Honda’s automotive-style Electric Power Steering lessens steering effort and helps eliminate bump steer, especially over rocks, logs and on sidehills. Plus, a tilt steering wheel lets you find a position that’s just right for you.
New Intelligent 4WD
The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE includes a suite of stability assist features designed to make your ride safer, easier and more fun. Using technology developed for cars and trucks, I-4WD includes Brake Traction Control System (BTCS), Hill Start Assist (HSA), and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). When I-4WD is engaged using the dashboard-mounted lever, BTCS applies additional drive to the tire with more grip, providing better traction without the heavy feel of a differential lock. On-the-fly engagement via an illuminated switch allows for instant response when needed. For more on HSA and EBD, see the Chassis & Suspension section.
In addition to 2WD and I-4WD, the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE features a Turf mode that’s perfect for sensitive surfaces like grass fields, or for easier steering.
Hill Start Assist
Getting going when you’re stopped on a hill can be a bit of an adventure – particularly when towing or carrying a load. That’s why the Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE comes standard with Hill Start Assist. Activated with a dash-mounted button, HSA automatically maintains sufficient brake pressure so you can move your foot to the gas pedal and you’re under way. No more need to two-foot it when climbing hills.
The LE’s premium Fox shocks combine with generous travel from the independent front and rear suspensions to assure a smooth, well-controlled ride with plenty of ground clearance.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE’s Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) system helps to increase braking performance while also improving vehicle stability. Using technology perfected in Honda cars and trucks, EBD provides automatic proportioning of front and rear braking force even with changing loads, and prevents the rear wheels locking up before the front wheels.
The Pioneer 1000-5 EPS LE comes standard with large 27-inch tires on 12-inch aluminum wheels for better ride comfort, improved ground clearance and superior traction.
