The Honda Pilot LX is the base trim of this family-friendly SUV. It has standard front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is also available. Inside, there's room for up to eight people throughout three rows of comfortable cloth seats.
This vehicle runs on a 3.5L V6 engine with Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Life Electronic Control (i-VTEC). This design works with a 6-speed automatic transmission and can deliver up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
The dashboard features a standard 5-inch LCD screen for your infotainment system. You can use it to stream music from your phone, make calls with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, and check behind you when you're backing up with the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines. On top of the camera, you'll be in for a safer drive with the standard driver assistance features in the Honda Sensing® system.
The Honda Pilot EX runs on the same powertrain, but upgrades your interior with heated front seats, one-touch second-row seats, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support.
The infotainment system also gets an upgrade to an 8-inch touchscreen with tons more standard features, including:
The Pilot EX-L continues to upgrade the cabin, delivering more comfort with a 4-way power-adjustable front passenger's seat. It also gives you a more peaceful drive with acoustic glass on the front windshield, which decreases wind and road sounds from outside.
Up top, you can decide how much light gets into the cabin with a one-touch power moonroof. During nighttime driving, an automatic-dimming rearview mirror will help you see better by minimizing glare from approaching headlights.
There's also more luxury within this trim, including standard leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a leather shift knob.
The Honda Pilot Touring has the same engine as the previous trims, but runs on a more versatile 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Meanwhile, the exterior adds roof rails and an easy-to-use hands-free power tailgate
Inside, there's now acoustic glass on the front doors, heated front and rear seats, and a built-in mobile hotspot. The infotainment system gets two big upgrades as well, the first being the now-standard Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition. Second, passengers in the back will enjoy the Advanced Rear Entertainment System with a 10.2-inch screen and Blu-Ray™ player.
The top trim level is the Honda Pilot Elite, and it's the only trim to have the Intelligent Variable Torque Management® All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System included standard.
Meanwhile, the interior can be brighter and even more comfortable with a panoramic roof, heated second-row captain's chairs, and heated and ventilated front seats. In addition to three USB ports, you can also keep your phone charged on a convenient Wireless Phone Charger.
