There are mechanical changes as well. A dedicated Tow/Haul mode helps optimize power delivery; Honda tuned the engine for better performance with optimized valve timing and an updated throttle-body plate setting. Steering is made easier, too, with an electronic power steering system that boasts 50 percent more torque assist. And for when a heavy load is on board, be it in the cabin or bed, the 1000-6 Deluxe Crew has automatically self-leveling rear shocks. On the electronics front, there’s a prewired panel for the easy installation of accessories, and a matching dash switch panel.
