Design & Features
The Pioneer 520 combines a lot into its eye-catching design. Its rugged features create an attractive design that’s ready to get into tough work, but still remains functional through all of that. Maintenance is simple thanks to a removable hood and seat cushions, as well as the purposefully positioned battery and air filter.
The rear-hinged door ensures the nets on your side-by-side stay attached when entering or exiting the vehicle. Both inside and out, the doors feature a single-hand twist-action release so you can easily open the doors.
Much thought, design and implementation has gone into ensuring both driver and passengers are safe and secure on every drive. These safety features include the following:
- High sill doors
- Integrated headrests
- Protective door nets
- 3-point Emergency Locking Retractor seat belts
- Occupant Protection Structure
Illuminate the trail ahead, or get some work done with a bright working area thanks to the twin-headlight system that contains 37.5-watt headlights. On the rear of the Pioneer 520 are LED brake lights for the best in illuminating light tech.

Engine & Performance
Powerful & Efficient Engine
The Pioneer 520’s 518cc liquid-cooled engine provides both power and efficiency. Its extra 43 cc gives the side-by-side a helpful torque boost, letting you tackle trails and farm work with a little extra oomph. Even the placement of the engine in the vehicle was specifically implemented in order to more directly focus power and to reduce friction.
Automatic & Manual Shifting
The advanced transmission of the Pioneer 520 allows for both automatic and manual shifting. AT mode allows for that auto shifting, while the paddle shifters on the steering wheel let you adjust how you see fit at a moment’s notice. Manual shifting is activated through the MT mode, with 5 speeds for you to work with.
Just like the engine, the Pioneer 520 finds its performance features helped along as much by design as it does through engine power. A reduced engine height is produced thanks to an overhead-valve layout and semi-dry-sump lubrication system, which both improves your ground clearance over the tough terrain below and helps to lower the side-by-side’s centre of gravity.
Easily switch between 2WD and 4WD depending on your terrain. Stay in 2WD to maintain the height of efficiency from the Pioneer, then quickly switch to 4WD when the goings get tough through the dash-mounted lever.

Chassis & Suspension
Durable & Strong Chassis
The 2022 Pioneer 520 was built to hold up in tough environments, exactly what Alberta can dole out— over long periods of time. Its strong steel chassis and heavy-duty construction are more than up to the task to take on your tough-work needs, as well as the hazards of the trail.
It may be a rugged looking side-by-side, but the Pioneer 520 provides a smooth and seamless ride. The independent front and rear suspension systems are the cause of this, from their terrific spring rates to damping performance.
Comfortably seat two inside the Pioneer 520 due to its sizable cab and roomy bench seat. Bring your favourite drinks along with you thanks to the twin cup holders conveniently located for easy access.
When we say that the 2022 Pioneer 520 is primed for tough work we mean it. Put it to work on your farm with its heavy-duty receiver style hitch that can take on 453 kg (1,000 lbs) in towing ability.
