For customers who appreciate a medium ground that considers load-carrying capacity while also appreciating the ability to maneuver in technical quarters, Honda’s middleweight Pioneer 700 is the ideal solution. Versatile and capable, this rec/utility side-by-side is eager to roll up its sleeves for tough jobs on the ranch, but it’s also ready for weekend trail-ride adventures. Available in three trim levels (each of which is offered in both two- and four-seat configurations) the Pioneer 700 platform offers something for everyone.

Originally introduced for the 2014 model year, the Pioneer 700 was the first in Honda’s now-expansive Pioneer family of capable rec/utility side-by-sides. From day one, it was offered in two- and four-seat configurations, and for 2017 Deluxe versions of both were introduced, with features like aluminum wheels and electric power steering. For 2023, Honda added a new “Forest” trim level and made important comfort- and convenience-oriented updates across the platform, nearly doubling storage volume, adding tilt steering, redesigning the front-door-mounted beverage holders to hold tumbler-sized cups, and more.

To satisfy the needs of every customer, the Pioneer 700 platform comprises three different trim levels—from the standard to the top-of-the-line Forest—each of which is offered in two-seat and four-seat versions.

  • Pioneer 700 Forest: To enhance the driving experience on the trail, the Forest is outfitted with an extended-coverage front bumper, a 4,500-pound Warn Winch, dual bed lights, in-bed 12V outlet and an additional 3.9L of under-dash storage.
  • Pioneer 700 Deluxe: Improving overall versatility, the Deluxe version features black aluminum wheels, electric power steering, in-bed 12V outlet and dual bed lights.
  • Pioneer 700: Featuring the numerous platform-wide updates, the standard version is the most value-oriented option in the line.

The Pioneer 700 platform stands apart thanks to a number of comfort-, convenience- and style-focused features, as well as Honda’s renowned fit and finish.

  • Dump bed for convenient unloading of dirt and feed, as well as simplified cleaning.
  • Ample storage volume, including a large glove box and additional under-dash storage.
  • A tilt steering wheel enables fine-tuned comfort, in addition to simplified vehicle ingress and egress.
  • The front-door-mounted beverage holders are designed to hold tumbler-size cups.
  • A wire harness is pre-wired for simplified installation of Honda and aftermarket electronic accessories.
  • Also to facilitate clean installation of electronic accessories, pre-wired switches are integrated in the dash.
  • The Pioneer 700 Forest and Deluxe versions have a handy 12-volt accessory receptacle in the bed, enabling use of electronic devices like coolers, work lights, food warmers, sprayers, air compressors and more.
  • The Pioneer 700 Forest comes standard with a 4,500-pound-capacity winch for removing obstacles and providing peace of mind in rugged conditions.
  • A large dash meter allows great visibility.
  • For locating gear in low-light conditions—for example, selecting a fishing lure—the Pioneer 700 Forest and Deluxe come with dual bed lights.
  • The Forest and Deluxe come standard with black aluminum wheels, while the standard versions have steel wheels.
  • To customize the vehicle to owners’ needs, there are over 76 accessories for the Pioneer 700. Examples include a snowplow, a glass windshield and a GPS, part of a wide range of options available to adapt the vehicle to specific applications.
  • Deluxe and Forest versions come with Electric Power Steering that increases torque assist, optimizes handling and features a “Return to Center” function that improves responsiveness and reduces steering effort.

The heart of the Pioneer 700 is its proven 675cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, overhead-valve, single-cylinder four-stroke engine, which is mounted longitudinally for maximum drivetrain efficiency.

  • Automotive-style automatic transmission with hydraulic torque converter, three forward gears and Reverse.
  • Forest and Deluxe versions feature a transmission that can change between manual electric-shift mode and fully automatic mode via a toggle switch; the automatic mode can also be overridden on the fly, using steering-column-mounted paddle shifters.

Occupying a middle ground in Honda’s rec-utility side-by-side lineup, the Pioneer 700 is capable of carrying loads and passengers, but also of navigating in tight spaces, all while offering a comfortable ride.

  • Aluminum wheels on Forest and Deluxe versions.
  • Painted plastic on Forest and Deluxe versions for a striking look and a durable finish.

  • With the same overall dimensions of a two-person design, the Pioneer 700-4 versions maintain a high level of maneuverability while still being able to seat up to four people.
