2022 SIX-SEAT HONDA PIONEER | New model showroom | Vehicles

Honda has announced its all-new, multipurpose side-by-side, the Pioneer 1000-6 Deluxe Crew. It looks like a great addition to the Pioneer family, featuring a full-size, six-person cab.

The six-seat Honda Pioneer Crew benefits from all the updates applied to the 2022 Pioneer 1000 (announced in March), in addition to model-specific features that make it the biggest side-by-side in Honda’s lineup.

The six-seat Honda pioneer cab is designed with a spacious second row, boasting the most in class with over 70 centimetres of leg room for easy vehicle entry and exit for the tall. A full-size cargo bed and front and rear under-seat storage also increase the carrying capacity for additional items. If the bed is loaded with tools and supplies, you can select tow/haul mode and self-leveling rear suspension to improve the ride. As with the rest of the Pioneer 1000 family, the Crew features a 999cc parallel-twin engine and Dual Clutch Transmission. Oh and there’s the Honda durability, quality and reliability factor as well.

The Pioneer 1000-6 Crew will be available in the U.S. in September but it is likely it won’t arrive in Australia until well into 2023.
