The Honda Pilot is a highly renowned SUV for its consistent delivery of top of the line features, exemplary space and storage, and dependable performance. Honda gave the Pilot a complete redesign last year, and it upholds the strong traits given but also offers a more appealing exterior design.
The first two generations of the Pilot had very linear bodies with boxy corners. This was an aggressive styling that accurately portrayed the strength and durability the SUV has to offer. The previous design was suitable, but the new sleek lines and sharp LED accents really help to pull the whole look together. On the inside, we find soft touch surfaces on the dash and doors and a friendly center console with lots of space for your belongings.
There's only one engine available for the 2017 Honda Pilot: a 3.5-liter V6 putting out 280 horsepower. This engine is offered with either a 6-speed automatic or, in Touring and Elite models, a 9-speed automatic. All models offer AWD, and the sophisticated system is standard on Elite models. Interestingly, a traction-management system that optimizes the AWD and FWD function for snow, mud or other surfaces is standard on all but LX models. The engine offers an Eco mode that shuts off half the cylinders under light throttle to help improve fuel economy.
Available on all but the base LX trim, Honda Sensing bundles lane-keeping assist with rear cross-path detection, adaptive cruise control and road-departure mitigation as well as the Pilot EX’s LaneWatch monitor in a safety suite designed to help the driver both see and avoid potential hazards. The basic front-wheel-drive (FWD) 2017 Honda Pilot LX comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera and a tire-pressure-monitoring system that flashes the lights when you've filled a tire to its proper pressure. Cruise control, audio and phone controls are all located on the steering wheel, and all Pilots come with Bluetooth, a 4.2-inch information screen between the gauges, and push-button start.
