With the 2017 Honda Pilot, comfortable and premium surroundings mark this big family hauler, as well as a great ride and plenty of power. A V6 engine and available AWD provides the Honda Pilot the platform of no nonsense performance.
It maintains Honda’s strict guidelines for quality. And like all Honda’s, it gives a little more in areas that are not readily seen, but hugely important to an overall positive experience of vehicle ownership. Like one touch second row seating movement for easier access to third row seating. And available 9” back row entertainment DVD system with remote control.
A six-speed automatic transmission provides seamless acceleration in the Pilots two standard models, and a nine-speed shift by wire automatic transmission with paddle shifters for the upper trims. Both excel in helping the Pilot manages its power and with the nine speed, the Pilot benefits from increased gas mileage.
The Pilot gets along with a V-6 engine producing 280HP, a hardy and capable amount, and with Honda’s reputation for quality, it is a package that performs with power and fluidity. It has available Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD system with snow, sand, and mud settings.
Moving away from its former boxy self, the new Honda Pilot is bolder and more assertive looking. The body appears longer and with curves and more angular lines combined and placed in the right places, the overall appearance more modern and aesthetically pleasing.
Exterior accessories in the Pilot include a trailer hitch, premium black gloss 20 inch wheels, roof rails with crossbars, and running boards. It all looks great on the 2017 Pilot with its aerodynamic lines and angular design features. With Honda’s more integrated chrome grille and assertive front fascia, a sleek, bold, and modern look is achieved.
Comfort and convenience meets occupants in every part of the Pilot’s interior. Second row captain chairs seat are first class and access to third row seating is just one touch away. With 109 cubic feet of cargo space, the Pilot can haul anything owners can imagine. Second and third rowing in the Pilot conveniently fold into the floor to quickly assume the role of cargo van.
The driver’s area, instrument panel, and center console share with Honda’s other models excellent use of space, quality of build, and superb refinement. Honda buries the competition in its interior design philosophy, and the Pilot carries all those heightened qualities throughout the entire interior.
Advanced safety features come standard in the Pilot. Surrounded by size of comfort of the Pilot, you can feel more assured with the Vehicle Safety Assist, Anti-Lock Braking system, Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist, TPMS and rearview camera with three different views: normal, top-down and wide.
