Available on select Pioneer models, our Automatic DCT takes care of the shifting so you don’t have to.
The brain of the DCT, Advanced Transmission Logic, senses how you drive and adapts. Relaxed drivers get earlier shifts for a quieter ride at lower engine speeds. Sportier drivers will hold each gear longer for higher RPM shifts. And when going downhill, you get true engine braking. Now that’s a smart transmission.
When you know the power you need is always at the ready, every drive is an enjoyable experience. And that’s precisely what you get out of the class-leading 999cc liquid-cooled inline twin. Using the same Unicam® cylinder head design found in our motocross bikes, it’s more compact in size, and it still delivers the kind of horsepower and torque you’d expect from a flagship model.
Prepare to go further than ever before. Our refined chassis enables you to tackle terrain others would shy away from, with larger tires, long-travel independent front and rear suspension and huge ground clearance. The rubber mounted engine and exhaust system insulates against excessive vibration.
There are a ton of reasons to buy a Pioneer 1000. Among them: the half-ton hauling capacity*. No side-by-side can haul more, and when it comes to dumping, we’ve made it easier than ever, with a hydraulic assist tilt bed lever that can be accessed from outside the vehicle, or right from the driver’s seat.

Our Automatic DCT is a breakthrough technology that makes your Pioneer more versatile and fun.
Together with Honda’s i-4WD, DCT delivers smooth power, true compression braking and optimal traction, giving you better control.
Smooth power delivery means you can motor up and over large rocks at speeds that let you plan your next move.
This is tough, reliable Honda technology at its best, proven for years in hundreds of thousands of vehicles.
Choose between shifting modes like Drive, Sport and Manual. Whether you’re rolling down a flat gravel road, rock crawling, or dialing it up for a sportier ride, you’ll find one that’s right.
Intelligent power delivery helps keep the driving wheels from breaking loose, offering a smooth, continuous flow of power without the shifting interruptions that can cause momentary traction loss in rocky or muddy conditions.
Engine compression braking is key to control, especially when entering turns or on technical downhills. Since DCT has manual-type gearbox internals and not some add-on system, you get genuine compression braking—and control.
By constantly monitoring power delivery to the drive wheels, you get the most of all available traction. Predictable, smooth power comes in handy in areas where traction is at a premium.
Because our DCT is so efficient, more power gets to the ground. Plus, there are no belts to slip, break, or burn up.
Choose Manual Mode, and you can override the automatic shifting on the fly with a pair of paddle shifters mounted right on the steering column.
