New I-4x4 sets the Pioneer 1000-5 LE apart



Just days after we were sliding around the snow in a Sport UTV, Honda whisked us away to Southern California to test out the new Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition.


Though the Pioneer 1000 and 1000-5 have only been out for a short time, the new Limited Edition versions get some cool new technology, which we imagine will work its way down to the other Pioneer models in the coming years.


The primary reason Honda let us escape the cold for a few days is its new I-4WD system, which is available exclusively on the Pioneer 1000 and 1000-5 Limited edition models. According to Honda, I-4WD borrows heavily from its automotive engineers and offers brake traction control, Hill-Start Assist and electronic brake force distribution.
