The Honda Pilot Means To Maintain Its Lead

In the grappling for market share in the competitive mid-sized SUV segment, the latest version of the third generation Honda Pilot starts out in front.  In addition to all the basic family values of a smooth ride, spacious three row seating interior, and top safety ratings, the new Pilot sports fresh exterior styling and has had a tech update.

Powered by a 3.5-liter, direct-injection V6 engine with fuel saving variable cylinder management and a choice of 6-speed or 9-speed automatic transmissions with 2WD and AWD options, the now legendary VTEC engine design continues to impress demanding drivers.

Maximizing the family format and usable space is achieved with large door entryways and minor innovations like the one-touch slide and fold second row seat. Once the home team is loaded in, the Honda Pilot tech connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto keeps everyone busy.

Loaded with a full suite of driver assistance technology, the Pilot burnishes Honda safety credibility with collision avoidance features integrated with the brake system, as well as sensor based forward and side to side, and camera aided blind spot and rear cross traffic protection.
