It’s not the typical “school bus” yellow that you may be familiar with, this is more of a highlighter yellow.Then we have the standard Red and Phantom Camo colors making a return.We have a new color to add to the mix for 2018 on the Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe – Active Yellow.The Active Yellow color has been used in the past on the 2017 Rubicon 500 EPS (TRX500FM6).
Once I am finished doing a detailed review on each model I will put together a special page breaking down all of the model differences between all of the different 2018 Pioneer 1000-5 (5-seater) & 1000 (3-seater) models.
I still have some people confused as to what the ‘5’ means in 1000-5 and that’s what has pushed me to spend the time in a write-up like this.
To start with, the 2018 Pioneer 1000 model lineup is available in (6) different versions, (3) Pioneer 1000 models with a 3-seater configuration and three Pioneer 1000-5 models with a 5-seater capability.
First, let’s dive into the 2016 Pioneer 1000-5 ‘heat issue’ that you may have read about if you browse the owner’s forums etc.
This complaint has been a mixed bag as you’ll find some that say they don’t have a heat issue where some find it “unbearable”.
